I just read Family  Tree by Barbara Delinsky in 2 days. I love her writing.  Her writing reminds me of Adrianna Trigiani's who I love.Twists and turns that you never expect. And it was an easy read. Can anyone else recommend one of her books for me?

The only one of her's I have read is Together Alone. I liked it pretty well. It was outside of what I usually read.

I'm just about to post one that I've just finished. I'm a Delinsky fan, and this is one that I had missed somehow. It's called "The Secret Between Us" and is an interesting look at a  mother-daughter situation which becomes  the trigger for  changing every relationship within a whole family. I thought it was very well done. A fairly quick read too, but thought provoking.

I liked a lot of her early books.  Three Wishes, the Woman next door.  I actually was not crazy about Family Tree.

I read Barbara Delinsky many years ago.   I recall that my favorite was The Passions of Chelsea Kane.   I think this is an older one.

The only one I've read so far is The Secret Between Us.   I really enjoyed it and have some of her others on my WL/RL.
