I find that I really enjoy books with some paranormal in it, like the Nora aRoberts Key series and the Seven Trilogy. Also books by Kay Hooper, and the FBI series by Catherine Coulter.  Does anyone have other suggestions on authors of this type of storyline??

I just finished Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz. Plenty of paranormal in it!

Alice Hoffman is definitely one of my favorites..... I loved Skylight Confessions and The Third Angel.  I have a shelf full of her earlier books that I'm starting to read.  She hasn't disappointed me yet.

The first Jodi Picoult book that I read was Second Glance.  That was an amazing story.  Then I started reading her other books thinking she would continue in that paranormal vein, but I was wrong.  Paranormal isn't a standard for her.   I love her books, but none compare to Second Glance which is one of the best books I've ever read.
