For Father's Day we released a limited edition Men's Box. While we don't think of Sweet Reads as a gender based subscription box we wanted this edition to be specifically suited to our male subscribers, or those interested in crime fiction.
Limited Edition Men’s Box
Novel: Dark Sacred Night
A captivating read by Michael Connelly from a popular series with over twenty books. While we don’t normally use a series book in the box we felt this novel stood apart because of the introduction of a new protagonist, Renee Ballard who teams with Harry to solve a cold case. Dark Sacred Night lives up to the Harry Bosch cadre, with descriptions of Los Angeles and the characters, that make both, come alive. Pair with some fun and delicious treats we hope you love our first Limited Edition Men’s Box.
What’s in the box?
Salted Caramel Honeycomb Dips – Mighty Fine - We wanted to get this sweet into a box because we love it. The lightness of the honeycomb with the chocolate and caramel and sea salt is heavenly. While it does not directly relate to the story (and donuts don’t ship well) we chose this sweet to pair with a great coffee. Our friends at our local roaster, Kyoto Coffee helped us pick a winning brew.
Papua New Guinea with Salted Caramel Organic - Kyoto Coffee - Cofee and cops are like peanut butter and jelly they just go together. This coffee was chosen to compliment and accentuate the flavour of the Salted Caramel Honeycomb Dips. Papua New Guinea sourced; it has a mild flavour. *
Coffee Themed Socks – Hatley, Little Blue House - The coffee theme continues with these coffee socks. We might have gone with donut socks but thought that might be a bit unfair to the police. Perfect with jeans, show off your love of coffee with style. *
Mug Shot Mug – Hatley, Little Blue House - This humorous mug featuring a bear having his mug shot taken couldn’t be more police themed. Channel your own inner detective with your morning coffee. Did you know truckers use the term Smokey the Bear when talking to each other on their radios to refer to the police? *
Men Don’t Stink Soap - Walton Wood Farms - Both Renee and Harry take showers in the book to get rid of the smell from crime scenes. This manly soap will leave you as clean as a (police) whistle. *
