Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 03/28/21

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Little Girl left last Saturday to go to Gatlinburg with her grandparents on Spring Break. I was excited about having some extra time to spend with our middle child. And we did. Yet I also brought a spring sinus infection with me and felt miserable most of the week. Baby Boy had his 2 month check up Monday. He's already 14 pounds 14 ounces (which is MORE than Little Boy weighed at 4 months old). Tuesday, my brother needed to bring a check by our house, and he went with us to the park and to grab some lunch. Tuesday afternoon I had the craziest experience. I saw a teenager jump the fence to our neighbor's house across the street. Their house has been broken into in the past so I immediately called the police since no one was home. Well come to find out, the daughter of the man who lives there has recently moved in with them and she was sneaking her boyfriend in the house. The young adult (am I still a young adult at 34 years old???) in me felt so bad for busting her. Yet the parent in me would appreciate someone calling the cops on my fifteen year old daughter trying to sneak someone in my house. The rest of the week we had rainy weather and stayed home. Our state had tornados on Thursday, but thankfully the weather for our specific area didn't get too bad. Little Girl and my parents were supposed to head home on Saturday, but Friday night my dad called about 8 pm that my daughter had thrown up twice. I felt so helpless because they were about 6 hours away from us. Well by 1 am Saturday morning, my dad called that he was taking my daughter and my mom who was now sick to the ER. By 2, my dad was throwing up too. They were going to be released from the ER about 6 am but my dad started vomitting again and the doctor wanted to give him an IV. They decided to stay another night to get well. They slept about 16 hours and still it was Sunday afternoon before they felt well enough to travel. They're still not home, and my mama heart needs to see my baby soon.

Goodreads description--He only wanted a duchess for a day―but she's determined to make it a marriage for life

When his father and older brother suddenly pass away, the new Duke of Haverly is saddled with a title he never expected to bear. To thwart the plans of his scheming family, the duke impulsively marries a wallflower. After all, she's meek and mild; it should be easy to sequester her in the country and get on with his life―as a secret agent for the Crown.

But his bride has other ideas. She's determined to take her place not only as his duchess but as his wife. As a duchess, she can use her position to help the lowest of society―the women forced into prostitution because they have no skills or hope. Her endeavors are not met favorably in society, nor by her husband who wishes she'd remain in the background as he ordered.

Can the duke succeed in relegating her to the sidelines of his life? When his secrets are threatened with exposure, will his new wife be an asset or a liability?

Goodreads description--Captain Charles Malvern owes a great debt to the man who saved his life--especially since Major Richardson lost his own life in the process. The best way to honor that hero's dying wish is for Malvern to escort the man's grieving fiance and mother safely to a new cottage home by the sea. But along the way, he learns of another obligation that has fallen on his shoulders: his uncle has died and the captain is now the Earl of Rothwell.
