I liked Misery Loves Caberbet by Kim Gruenenfelder, and love any of the fiction by Marian Keyes - This Charming Man, or any of the Sullivan family stories (Watermelon, Angels, etc)

Perfect on Paper by Janet Goss--it's hilarious and sweet and will NOT underestimate your intelligence!

If you are searching for a page turner - I would recommend The Crying Rose by B.A. Beers - I couldn't put it down. The sequel is pretty good also.
You also might want to check out Knight Vision by Johanna Bock - I was brought to tears from laughing during the time they spent in Vegas.

I second the earlier post. "An Angry-Ass Black Woman" is gonna be great if it's half as good as Karen E.Q. Miller's previous novels!

Hello, I'm an editor and virtual assistant for authors. I just edited and read a great book by Catherine MacDonald, Seasons of the Vineyard. It's out on Kindle and an enjoyable and fast read. If you like strong women characters, you'll love this book. I was so involved, not only in editing, but the story, that I almost forgot what I was doing. lol It's a romance. It is also informational about making wine. Catherine MacDonald has done her research. It's a book that I couldn't put down. Check it out: Seasons of the Vineyard by Catherine MacDonald Thanks, Linda Barnett-Johnson

I'd like to offer a great book to read: Seasons of the Vineyard by Catherine MacDonald. It's in kindle form, a fast read, romance mixed with flash backs, strong female character, informative about winemaking, setting is beautiful, great descriptions. I just found it a great read. I am hoping she'll write another about these characters. I really enjoyed them. I could identify with the woman protagonist, because she's strong, but weak in some areas...men. Lots of women are like that. Great read in my opinion. Thanks, Linda

Try my new book Branche Olive: Fleur de Lis Branche Olive: Fleur de Lis It's Olivia's story. She struggles with the tragedies in her life, grasping at relationships to satiate her lonliness.

A great read is Seasons of the Vineyard by Catherine MacDonald. It's a romance with a strong female character. I edited it and enjoyed the story.

I just finished reading And The Winner Is by Erin Brady-very similiar to Sophie Kinsella's books. A good light read.

Try Francesca of Lost Nation by Lucinda Sue Crosby.
Kindle version reasonably priced.

Just wrote a lengthy review on Atomic Summer by Elaine D. Walsh. It's a great summer read.

Hello A. Oberson,

maybe not right the same direction but it is worth the try, simply it is full of twists and turns. "Ruled by Fear" from Kerstin McNichol. Have a look, it has a "Look inside" function. Hope you will like it.

Try my kindle ebook "...and she was".

Part memoir of a 30-something woman, Valerie, who wrote for sit-com; part love story of how Valerie and an unexpected man fall in love, almost lose their minds and each other only to fall more deeply in love by book's end; and part travelogue of a long-term trip to Sydney, Australia during the 2000 Olympics, a place where everyone's beautiful but drunk and the landscape is sharper than anyone living there.

Instead of a linear tale of each in sequence, these three threads weave together and dovetail to tell a story where by each chapter's end, a new view of Valerie is revealed. It's a high profile and yet down-to-earth journey of a woman looking to make her life work when nothing around her makes sense at any given time. Particularly her work in sit-com, a place where women are not considered funny, but toilet jokes are.

"...and she was" also delves into Valerie's complicated and unique family life (a much-married mother and Christian Fundamentalist step father who leaves her notes asking her to dinner and telling her that Satan is her Master).

It's also a story of Valerie's' search for love of her own, made particularly difficult since she makes more money than most men she meets in a world (LA) where only male power is based on money and female power is based on looks.

Finally, it's a first-person narrative of how Valerie gets it all, loses it, and then gets it back for real.

"...and she was" is for anyone who would enjoy a book like "Bridget Jones's Diary," or one with the resonance of "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," yet also want to know what kind of person Roseanne really is.
And the girl gets the boy, I promise.
