044 - 13  It's All Relative, by Wade Rouse (3/18)
045 - 14  Minding Frankie, by Maeve Binchy (3/21)
I thought this was going to be a light read. Instead, it was a wonderfully worthwhile read. There was a huge cast of characters with many different plots running tangled together - just like life. I hate to admit it, but I cried when one of the characters (not even a "main" one) died.
046 - 15  The Fall of Shane McKade, by Nora Roberts (3/23)
I'm the one who fell, from reading a really great book, and true literature, to reading this. Sigh.
047 - 16  Mr. Churchill's Secretary, by Susan Ella MacNeal (3/29)

Great book! It was recommended to me by a friend and I want to pass the recommendation along. Very loosely based on historical fact (ie Mr. Churchill was prime minister of England; England was bombed during the war), this was a fun story of mystery and romance without going overboard.
048 - 17  Meatless, by Martha Stewart (3/29)
This is a cookbook, so I didn't really read the entire thing. I sort of skimmed through each recipe. I did, howeer, look at each recipe and evaluate it based on y dietary restrictions vs my tastes. And I did read all the descriptions, notes, and other material. Surprisingly, I really like this cookbook. I hadn't expected Martha Stewart to be "doable." But I've already made use of her "how to cook the perfect post of beans" and her lentil curry is on this week's menu.
