March ’18 Random Haul

Ok, so as I’m writing this, March is officially over (and has been for several days), but I realized that I never posted any of my March hauls! It’s not even that March was a crazy month for me, but… ok, here’s the truth… I was SUPPOSED to be on a book-buying ban that month. And, well… that didn’t happen. BUT I did manage to spread my purchases out over the month, so here’s my haul list from March (purchased at random bookstores and Goodwill – one here, two there) while I was officially supposed to be on a book-buying ban (LOL, right).

Tumbledown ManorTumbledown Manor

By Helen Brown

“The windows rattle. The roof leaks. Every surface cries out to be stripped, painted, or polished. But for writer Lisa Trumperton, the dilapidated manor house that once belonged to her great-grandfather is far more than the sum of its battered parts. It’s the chance for a new start on her own terms. The fact that it’s in the Melbourne countryside of her Australian homeland, far from the deceitful ex-husband she just left behind in New York…well, that’s a bonus.”
