Recently I read A Place to call home and really liked it ,so I ordered Blue Willow. Any other books by her that are similar.

Also , as recommended to me by someone here ( creeker I think) thanks!  Sleeping at the magnolia, what a great book. Any others like that?

I always like to ask here because you ladies have such great recommendations.

I enjoyed the audio of Charming Grace very much. But I would recommend giving some time between it and A Place to Call Home because they're a bit jarring read too close together.

I loved  On Bear Mountain. It was my favorite.

I loved CHARMING GRACE - and A GENTLE RAIN was awesome.

Smith has a beautiful, unique voice.

There aren't too many Deborah Smith books that I wouldn't recommend.  Sweet Hush, Charming Grace and A Gentle Rain are some of the more recent ones that were terrific.

Her Loveswept, HOT TOUCH, is very touching. It's about a Hollywood animal trainer who heads out to Louisiana (love those Cajun men) to work. If anyone loves animals in their books, I do recommend it. I've read and reread it so many times I ended up getting a HC edition here. She also wrote as Jackie Leigh in the 2nd Chance at Love category romances and those were excellent, too.

It's her - whatever she writes is darn near golden.

I just recently got A place To Call Home in my TBR, it meets my current NTM author mini TBR read, so I might just slip her in.

I'm not too fond of her mermaid books.  But all the rest are keepers.

I have a bunch of her Loveswept books!  She was one of my favorite authors in that line.  I really love Hold on Tight and then its sequel, Never Let Go is just so emotional.  There's a bunch of books spun off from there about the other characters.

She has an eBook urban fantasy under a pen name.  Leigh Bridger.  Heard it is very different than her romances, much darker.  Soul Catcher.

Warning:  this is a print on demand book.  It has a very small chance of ever being posted.
