I love Rachel Gibson and was wanting some recommendation for authors similar to her in style? Thanks!

I've only ever read one book of hers and can't say I loved it.  Specifically, what kind of romance are you looking for?

For me, similar to Gibson's contemporary, humorous romances, I like Susan Andersen and Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

Here's my list of authors that I've read that are humorous, witty, and contemporary that I have enjoyed:

  • Jane Graves
  • Cathie Linz
  • Lisa Plumley
  • Christie Craig

(I also second those mentioned--didn't want to say them again)

Marianne Stillings and Beth Ciotta are also funny light reads. I like Christie Craig too and am waiting for her new book!
