I've just recently decided I want to try out some of her novels. There are so many though!

What are some of your favorites?

Are her series or the single title books better?

Thanks so much!

I like Morning Comes Softly for a single title. I also liked some of the Blossom street books and Susannah's Garden. in general hers range from romance with little sex and not very descriptive IMO(though Morning Comes Softly actually had a bit of description) to more towards women's fiction.

Thanks!

I've been reading the synopses on here for several of her books. I noticed that some do lean more toward Women's Fiction. I think I might try to start with some that sound more romance-y. I'll check out Morning Comes Softly. I didn't see that one in my browsing. :)

Oh, i second the "Morning Comes Softly" book. I really liked that one." Snow Bride" was another good one. If you want a complete list of her books and order of her series. Go to www.fantasticfiction.co.uk and type in her name.

I really liked the Heart of Texas books as well.  I like her angel books too  and the Blossom Street books. She's great for those times you need a "quiet" read to know eveything is alright in the world   :)

Thanks guys! I'm keeping all these in mind. So far I've decided to get 3 standalone titles and the Dakota series (An awesome member gave me a great deal!). Try a little of both her series and standalones and go on from there. Her Christmas books sound good too. I've only come across a few in browsing here on PBS, but from what I understand she releases one a year or something?

The only book I've read was Twenty Wishes. It was a nice book and definitely a change in pace for me. It was about older women, in their 40s - 60s, instead of the usual women in their 20s-30s I'm used to reading. It was very light on romance, So I guess it would be considered an older hen book, versus "chick" lit.
