Any recommendations for a Fiction book?
I'd like to travel to someplace wonderful with intriguing characters. Something I can't put down.
Tall order huh? Thanks for any help you can give.:)

Darlene,

I recently read the best series of books - one that truly made me feel I was a part of the characters' lives. The author is Adriana Trigiani and the series is Big Stone Gap, Big Cherry Holler, and Milkglass Moon. The stories follow the life of a small town pharmacist/spinster and her quest to find out what is real in her life after her mother dies. Great books!:thumb:

Another series of books I enjoy reading are mysteries written by M.C. Beaton. She has a couple of series, but I've only read the Hamish Macbeth books ("Death of a..."). These are very light reading - before my son was born I could polish one off in a day. The stories are set in Scotland, and include a very interesting set of characters!:clap:

Good luck finding some great reads for the summer!

I like doris Roberts and I read a book that was mindless fun but i can't remember the name of it. It was by Megin Cabot and it was all done in E-Mail format. I laughed out loud on that one. Also The Princess Diaries is good. It is not like the movie.

Thanks for more suggestions! Going to put them all on my list.:)

I read the Jane Auel Series except for the latest. Sure took a while for it to be published. I think I'll have to go back & reread those, I really enjoyed them years ago.:)

I just finished a great "fun" book. It is "Cabinet of Curiosities" by Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston. They also wrote "The Relic".

Megareader I agree with you. I loved "Jane Eyre" and "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn". I also really enjoyed, "Gap Creek," "The Doll Maker," and "Grapes of Wrath."

Tammy, they are addictive!!! The boys and I have all read the last one and couldn't put it down. I always reserve the first copy that the library will be getting in months in advance before it's due in the stores.:D My oldest son also read the Left Behind for Kids series and loves them also.
