Can anyone make some suggestions? I think it may be an un-developed market

Have you read Something Borrowed and Emily Giffin's other books? The characters are in their early 30's.

Room for Improvement by Stacey Ballis talks about love and the single girl in her 30's.

Certain Girls by Jennifer Weiner. Her earlier titles feature characters in their 30's as well.

Elizabeth Berg. Everything she writes is wonderful. Her books appeal to women, but they're not shallow--very little shoes and shopping. Her books are about real women (30's-50's) coping with real life, but with much humor along the way. I'd try Open House, The Year of Pleasures, Talk Before Sleep, or Never Change.

I have read and enjoyed most of the books recommended above but you might also want to try some of Nicholas Sparks books. I own every book he has ever written and I love them all. The Lucky One, Nights in Rodanthe, The Choice, Message in a Bottle and The Wedding are just a few of his books that are written about 30+ characters and they all have wonderful story lines. Enjoy!

Its not an un-developed market. It is a passed over market. A generation of micro cultures is less profitable than the following generation's mono culture or the previous generations bi culture. X gets the shaft.

Could I suggest my novel "40 Something"? It's about twelve friends, most of them in their 40's... their peculiar friendship and other relationships... You might wish to have a look.
Let me know. Thank you

Give me a few months and I'll finish the sequel to my 20-something novel, Growing up Beautiful. I happen to find writing about 30-40 year old's a blast. It's that stage of life where everything that can go wrong usually does. :) Growing Up Beautiful

Oops! I just read that authors aren't allowed to suggest their work. Sorry! Won't happen again. :)

London Bound: A Royal Misadventure by Sheretko. The heroine is a 30 something woman. It reads a little like Bridget Jones....she's flighty and funny.

Chunneling Through Forty is a wonderful funny book about a woman in her forties. I love this book and you might too.

I was so happy to find this thread! I am always looking for age appropriate book recommendations. I think I can safely say I am over the hunger games, twilight, teeny bopper era that has monopolized the book market. Thank you for doing this :) I have a fantastic book recommendation (one I just recently read). The book is called "Until Brazil" by author Bethe Lee Moulton. It was a book that I couldn't put down and made me smile through-out. The best comparison would be "Eat Pray Love." It's about a woman, Beth, who is facing a bit of a rut in life...job isn't going anywhere...married but restless. She decides to go on a business trip to Brazil in hopes of a promotion and in doing so falls in love with the culture, the lifestyle and the people! A book of personal transformation and there is even an unexpected love story. I love books about travel (especially with a female that I can relate to!). I hope you give it a chance -
Thanks for sharing the books you love :) Spread the happiness!Until Brazil
