In My Mailbox #61

It's Sunday, which means it's time for In My Mailbox, a weekly meme typically hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren (note: no more roundups in 2010 - she'll be hosting them again in 2011!).

I got one book in my mailbox this week:

These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf (Mira Books [Harlequin], February 2011).

Summary from ARC:

When teenager Allison Glenn is sent to prison for a heinous crime, she leaves behind forever her reputation as Linden Falls' golden girl. Her parents deny the existence of their once-perfect child.  Her former friends exult in her downfall.  Her sister, Brynn, faces the whispered rumors every day in the hallways of their small Iowa high school.  It's Brynn - shy, quiet Brynn - who carries the burden of what really happened that night.  All she wants is to forget Allison and the past that haunts her.

But then Allison is released to a halfway house and is more determined than ever to speak with her estranged sister.

Now their legacy of secrets is focused on one little boy.  And if the truth is revealed, the consequences will be unimaginable for the adoptive mother who loves him, the girl who tried to protect him and the two sisters who hold the key to all that is hidden.

Oooh, it sounds kind of intense!

What did you get in your mailbox this week?  And what books are you hoping Santa's going to bring you??
