I Need a New Book Shelf!
My beautiful, wonderful, haul from the used bookstore, My Sister's Books, in Myrtle Beach! By the way, the store is owned by 2 sisters and it gets it name because one sister reads the books and the other one sells them! (They take donations too!)
The Gentlewoman's Choice by George MacDonald
One of my favorite authors! Don't come across his very often. Victorian Novelist, Poet and Christian Fantasy (1824-1905) Scottish.
House of Shadows by Evelyn Bond 1965
Set in Florida, gothic romance
Deadly Hall by John Dickson Carr
Death Watch by John Dickson Carr
Deadman's Knock by John Dickson Carr
Can never go wrong with Carr!
Mrs. Mallory and the Delay of Execution by Hazel Holt
She has been on my authors to look for list a long time!

Yea! An Asey Mayo Mystery, been wanting to read one for a long time!
Grave Matters by Margaret Yorke 1973
A Patrick Grant Mystery this one is new to me. A British mystery
Wolf in Man's Clothing by Mignon G. Eberhart 1942
Another one on my long list to look for!
Paul Temple and the Margo Mystery by Francis Durbridge 1986
England's most debonair private detective. I just finished listening to Paul Temple mysteries on the BBC radio!
Slight Mourning by Catherine Aird 1976
Classic British mystery

Never heard of this author. Candy is the pseudonym for Dr. Barbara Alison Boodson Neville. Looking forward to this mystery!
Frog in the Throat by E.X. Ferrars
Elizabeth Ferrars, known in the US as E.X. for some reason.
The Wrong Way Down by Elizabeth Daly 1946
Henry Gamadge mysteries and hard to come by. I've read one from the library and loved it. I won one in the Vintage Mystery Challenge last year over at Bev's My Readers Block.
Death is No Sportsman by Cyril Hare 1938
I've been wanting to read one of his books since coming across a review on a blog!
Corpse in a Gilded Cage by Robert Barnard 1984
The Masters of the House by Robert Barnard 1994
The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O'Farrell
Saw a review last year for this and thought I would like it. On the cover it says in the style of Kate Chopin.
