Sunday Post - 11/20/22

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.

This was a more normal week. Tempatures have dropped here below freezing a few days, but thankfully it warms to the mid-to-upper 50s by midday. Tuesday it rained all day. And that was frustrating to not be able to get outside like we normally do, but Husband got my curtains hung in the bedroom. And I hung a few picture frames on the walls. Things are really starting to come together. I finished painting the last interior door casing. I'm not quite done with all painting, but we're really down to the piddly stuff now. Thursday, Little Boy had a terrible day with behavior. I kept my calm all day, but man was it challenging. He was so disrespectful and throwing fits any time I told him something he slightly didn't like. Baby Boy had an ear check with the doctor. Ears were all clear, but the doctor said he did hear some congestion. I told him that I'd noticed him coughing and worried he might be getting sick again. If he ends up with another ear infection, he's going to refer us to an ENT for tubes. Friday was a much better day for Little Boy, but we still had a couple of moments of bad behavior. After dropping the big kids off at school I ran to the grocery store. Usually I do grocery pick up but I wanted to be able to pick my own substitutions if necessary since Thanksgiving is this coming week. Saturday, Baby Boy woke up with a fever and a runny nose. So here we go again. I had to take Little Girl to basketball evaluations and by the time we got back Little Boy was also running a fever. The boys slept most of the afternoon, and Husband stayed home with them while Little Girl and I went to a going away party for some friends of ours from Korea. They're moving back to Korea on the 29th. Happy Thanksgiving week to all of our US friends.

Goodreads description--Emma Sutton knows she should be satisfied with her position at London's Central Telegraph Office. But ever since she was orphaned young, she's longed for a family of her own. Things look up when a handsome engineer is thrown into her orbit and he sends Emma the love note of her dreams.

Mitchell Harris's sharp wit and facility with a pen have enabled him to thrive despite serious obstacles. That the woman of his dreams works just one floor above his should make life perfect. But a childhood accident has left Mitchell convinced he'll never draw a woman like Emma Sutton's attention. When his best friend--who once saved his life--falls in love with Emma, too, and asks for help writing her love letters, Mitchell is torn between desire and loyalty.

Believing the writer of the letters is the answer to her prayers, but confused over her growing attraction to Mitchell, Emma's heart must decide where to call home.

Goodreads description--Sowerby, England, 1802

Miss Genevieve Wilde—a magistrate’s daughter and independent heiress—is determined to meet life’s challenges all on her own, just as her late-father had taught her. So when her father’s pocket watch is stolen, she will do anything to get it back, especially when the local authorities prove incompetent.

Upon reading an advertisement in the paper, she takes a chance and contacts a thief-taker to find the watch. It’s a choice Ginny regrets when former Bow Street officer Jack Travers arrives on her doorstep. He is frustratingly flirtatious, irritatingly handsome, and entirely unpredictable, and Ginny wonders if she’ll be able to resist such a man.

But after Ginny discovers that the missing watch is just a small part of a larger, more frightening plot against her, she needs Jack’s help more than ever. To protect her home and her reputation, the two enter into a risky charade—pretending Jack is her cousin so he can begin his investigation, starting with the household staff. As they work together to unravel the mystery, Ginny finds herself falling fast for her charismatic thief-taker, leaving her heart in just as much danger as her life.

That's it for my shelves and recaps of my past and upcoming week. What did you add to your shelves this week? Any bookish news you want to talk about? Let me know!
