Booksie's Shelf, February 23, 2014

Spring is thinking about putting in an appearance in North Carolina.  We've been in the high 60's this week, flirting several days with the 70's.  While the temperatures are supposed to cool off again this week, you sense that the weather's heart isn't into cold anymore, and that things are ready to move into warmth and growth.  Capping off a great week, my beloved Tarheels beat their archrivals, Duke, on Thursday night, always a cause for massive celebration.  Another cause are the books that made their way through the door this week:

1.  Her Unwelcome Inheritance, J. Aleksandr Wootton, fantasy, sent by author
2.  Fortunate Son, David Marlett, mystery, sent by publisher
3.  Over My Live Body, Susan Israel, mystery, sent by publisher
4.  Fatal Impressions, Reba White Williams, mystery, sent by publisher
5.  Lovely Assistant, Geoph Essex, fantasy, sent by author
6.  Harem Midwife, Roberta Rich, historical fiction, sent by publisher
7.  Not Without You, Harriet Evans, literary fiction, sent by publisher
