Did You Miss These March New Releases?

by Susan Roberts

March has bee another great month for new books. Today, I have 5 books that published this month that you will want to make sure are on your TBR list. The first one is a thriller, but the other 4 are romances. I enjoy reading a good romance especially a romance that has well-written characters and a plot with some twists and turns. These March romances provided both.

Glory Road by Lauren K. Denton ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

Glory Road quote 1

Modern southern fiction usually has well-written characters and a sense of place - to the point that the setting of the novel is as important as the characters. Glory Road is one of those locations that is a strong part of the book - the reader can see the red dirt road and feel the heat in the summer; we can hear the creak of the porch swing as the insects buzz past our ears. It's a comforting place to be and a fantastic setting for Glory Road.

What the Parrot Saw by Darlene Marshall ~ a Review

by MK French

The notorious Captain Mattie St. Armand hijacked a white Englishman from a brothel onto her ship. She dresses as a man and often disguises her appearance; one of the many things she does is smuggle freed slaves from Florida to the Bahamas. Having a white man to pose as the Captain can definitely add another layer of protection. Oliver Woodruff had only wanted to travel a bit before settling down to work at the family mill but found him settling into life on the ship better than he expected. He's fascinated by Mattie, and more than willing to put action to his words condemning the American slave trade. Both are hesitant to do anything more about their mutual attraction because of society's rules.

Tomorrow's Bread by Anna Jean Mayhew ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

"I tire so of hearing people say,
Let things take their course.
Tomorrow is another day.
I Do not need my freedom when I'm dead.
I cannot live on tomorrow's bread."
(from Democracy by Langston Hughes.  In the foreword of the novel)

March Reading & Blog Wrap-up

by Donna Huber

Can you believe we are already on the last Monday of March? I know there is another full week left of the month, but I like doing my wrap-ups on the last Monday. But I will be updating the post as the week progresses. So if you are reading this as part of It's Monday! What are your reading? it may be a little different if you stop back for the Monthly Wrap Up meme.

A little note about the picture above... I have been looking for a vanity since I moved into my house nearly 16 years ago. I also need more bookshelves. I haven't located a vanity that I like enough at a price I'm willing to pay so I decided to make my own. I spent Sunday afternoon painting, assembling, and installing my new vanity/bookcase combo. I love it!

Now onto the reading and all things blogging.

Field Guide to the Spirit World by Susan B. Martinez ~ a Review

by MK French

The forward is written by Whitley Strieber and is written with the idea that people are spirits housed inside a body of flesh. Therefore, lost spirits that haunt the world can try to inhabit our bodies, and there are a number of things that can leave them vulnerable to possession. A number of mental illnesses would predispose someone to hauntings or possessions, and may even be the result of such activity. These aren't necessarily all harmful violations, as the spirits can also provide information and gifts to those open to them.
