I have recently finished all of the books out there by Emily Giffin and I recently read Me & Mr Darcy  by Alexandra Potter, so now I"m on the hunt for a new author, book, or series that I will love just as much! I love books with an interesting and funny heroine who finds the man of her dreams, especially in an unexpected way.

Any Suggestions?

I am assuming you have read the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella... if you have not, that is a good series, she finds a man etc :)

Jennifer Weiner's Good in Bed is part of a 2 book series - I really liked Good in Bed and am still waiting to read the second book (Certain Girls) - I can't seem to get ahold of it on any of my swap sites :(

Are you on Title Trader? Someone just posted a copy of it on there, it's 2 points (though most hardcovers usually are there). And TT points are kind worth less than PBS ones anyway (at least in my opinion!).

Sophie Kinsella first wrote under her real name-Madeleine Wickham. I think a few of her books are available in the USA.

I have not read the Shopaholic series. I'll have to get that one! I did not know that  she wrote under Madeleine Wickham. That's interesting! I'll have to check that out as well. thanks!

You might enjoy Meg Cabot's series on Heather Wells.  They are:

Size 12 is not Fat

Size 14 is not Fat Either

Big Boned

They all also have a little mystery to them!

Have you read anything by Jane Green? Jemima J was my favorite, but I also liked Babyville and have read several others whose names escape me.

I agree, Any Sophie Kinsella/Madeline Wickham books are good. So are Cecelia Ahern, Jennifer Weiner, and Marian Keyes.

Plus 32AA by Michelle Cunnah, especially if you are a little petite thing like me! The best book for other women that wear 32AA!

I just got Undomestic Goddess in the mail. I'm liking it so far! Ready for it to get to the meat of the story though ;)

I listened to Undomesticated Goddess in my car, going back and forth to schoo... I ended up with coke on my windsheld and I fell hopelessly in love with the leading man! I hope you enjoy it!
