Are you a busy Mom who is always on the look out for a relaxing good read to help escape at the end of a long day. I AM, I looked forward to MY TIME at the end of a long day. Does not mater to me what type of book, I will pretty much read anything. Mostly it's mystery and romance, but I have to draw the line at the chessy romance books, I have never been able to get thru one of those, I have tried. Anything with a bit of suspence or trill are ones that I will keep and read again.  But am always looking for something new. ANY SUGGESTIONS!!!

Know the feeling.  I took a look at your shelf to see what you have read. 

I would suggest you try Carla Neggers, Sherryl Woods, Susan Andersen, Christina Skye, and LuAnne Rice just to name a few of my authors.  I have some of them on my shelf along with many others.  Take a look and see if there are any you like and then PM me and we can work out a reasonable deal.

Hard to know where to start, so many great books/authors to read!  I would recommend books by Elin Hilderbrand, Jennifer Weiner, Jodi Piccoult; nice end-of-the-night "escape" books.

Hi, I just picked up three "Cat Wh"o books by Lilian Jackson Braun. It is an old series but I enjoy the antics of his two cats, who help him solve his mysteries.. Good Day Connie

Not sure if you like older protagonist or not but the Pollifax series is a great mystery series and another series with older PI is by Rita Lakin - great series! I am reading the Augusta Goodnight angel series right now by Magnon F. Ballard which is a good series and all are quick easy reads!

Patricia Sprinkles is another good author with mystery series that I have started and enjoy.

You probably already know about Janet Evanovich, but another series along those lines would be Bubbles series. Funny, mystery and romance all in one! 

Mysteries with recipes are Diane Mott Davidson and Joanne Fluke. Both write fun, easy reads with recipes included!

Please excuse any spelling errors as the author's last names sometimes throw me, but you will find them easily as all are well known.  Please drop a line if you like any of these, then I would have some idea of what you like to tell you if I run into anything up your alley!

Best wishes for good reads!!

I second Robyn Carr and would add Emily March, Joann Ross and Susan Mallery in the light romance category.

For mysteries, Donna Andrews has a cute series going, along with Jennie Bentley's DIY series.
