For Your Reading Pleasure – March’s New Books

I’m sorry for getting this up so late but things have been a bit hectic here for a while. My 94 yr old father in law is now housebound and I’m one of his elves.  My wife of 44 yrs had a double lumpectomy to remove a small cancer and is now getting ready for radiation treatments…  BUT she is well, and back at work.  So here is the new list for March of 2016.

As always this is a multi-genre list. If it appears to be a bit short it’s due to not having the time to research all the authors I’d normally post
