Books for March and April

I can’t believe I have let April get all the way past and not posted the books for March. April has been so cold and windy and rainy we just kind of thought of it as an extension of March – LOL. The only good thing about the month was my Azalea bush which instead of blooming for 3-5 days, bloomed for 31/2 weeks so I did actually get some pictures this year although it took a while for a sunny day to show up so I had some good light on it.

Azalea and Bumblebee

I Am really please with my bush this year.  It was pretty and bloomed for a long time.

Now on to the books!!  For March we had:

March 2011 Book List

  • The Cat Sitter Among the Pigeons by Blaze Clement
  • Death Threads by Elizabeth Lynn Casey
  • Death of a Cad by MC Beaton
  • Goodbye, Dolly by Deb Baker
  • Mrs Jeffries Speaks Her Mind by Emily Brightwell
  • Swan for the Money by Donna Andrews
There are no new authors in this list – Blaze Clement continues her Cat Sitter Series – each one better than the list.  Elizabeth Lynn Casey is still sewing with her new Southern Friends.  MC Beaton’s Hamish McBeth is solving crime in his own unique way and what can I say about Deb Baker and her Doll series except that I love it!!  Mrs Jeffries and the “Family” of the Inspector are always a delight and Meg and her family alway get into some new mishap that keeps you entertained from page one to the very end.

Completed April Books:

  • The Cat, The Professor and the Poison by Leann Sweeney
  • Night of the Living Deed by EJ Copperman
  • Death is a Bargain – Nora Charles
  • Weep No More My Lady by Mary Clark Higgins
  • Weigh Dead by Jean Hager
  • The Secret Portrait by Lillian Stewart Carl
  • Stork Raving Mad by Donna Andrews
  • A Crafty Killing by Lorraine Bartlett
  • Stone Cold by David Baldacci

I have two new authors – Lillian Stewart Carl and I really enjoyed her book the Secret Portrait and EJ Copperman and Night of the Living Deed which I also enjoyed although not as much as SP.  Donna Andrews is ALWAYS a fun read as is Jean Hager.  Nora Charles always leaves me wanting more of her Florida senior center antics and Mary Clark Higgins and David Baldacci write sound, thrilling, novels of suspense that you have a hard time putting down.  Lorraine Bartlett’s new Series with a Crafty Killing has the makings of a winner, a stubborn heroine, a cast of friends and supporters and problems to overcome through many more books.
