Shelf Control - June 3

Shelf Control is a weekly celebration of the unread books on our shelves sponsored by Lisa at Bookshelf Fantasies. Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up!

Want to join in? Shelf Control posts go up every Wednesday. Here's how to jump on board:
  • Write a blog post about a book that you own that you haven’t read yet.
  • Add your link in the comments!
  • Link back to Bookshelf Fantasies in your own post.
  • Check out other posts, and…

Here is another book from my TBR pile that I hope to read soon.

BLURB: Tempe Crabtree, resident deputy of Bear Creek, a small community in the southern Sierra, as once again finds herself torn between loyalty to her minister husband, her job, and her Native American heritage. The wingbeat of an owl?a harbinger of danger...Suspicious newcomers and a hidden marijuana farm...A false accusation, shaken faith, a grandfather?s heartache...And murder.

DATE BOUGHT: Unknown. I bought it directly from the author. Best guess is 2012 or 2013.

WHY I BOUGHT IT: I've been a fan of this series since Judgment Fire came out in 2007. For years after that, I helped this author coordinate her virtual book tours through Pump Up Your Book. I read future books up through River Spirits. Because I loved this series so much, at some point I went back and purchased books prior to Judgment Fire from the author. I have moved them around my office for years, but now that a new Deputy Tempe Crabtree book is out, I want to go back to the beginning of Tempe's story.

What did you pick off your shelf this week?

This sounds like an interesting series! And I really like the cover.

Thanks for visiting, Lisa. It's a great series. Tempe is of Native American ancestry, and that plays a role in the book. Think a female Walker, Texas Ranger without the explosions and martial arts.

I like your pick this week as well--murder mysteries are my favourites (which I keep saying), and combined with something further like an interesting or historical setting or cultural background like in this one makes them sound all the more appealing. Hope this turns out as good as the rest of the series!

Thanks, Mallika. Maybe you should check out this series. The books don't take long to read.
