Books by Emily Grayson  (The Gazebo, The Fountain, The Observatory, Waterloo Station, Night Train to Lisbon) remind me a little of Sparks's early books.  As far as I remember these are all stand alone titles.

Richard Paul Evans is a great author - you should try his books.

Isn't Spark's books great!  He just came out with a new one...I am hoping to get it for Christmas.  I also wanted to say that last year I met Nicholas Sparks at one of his book signings.  He is very handsome (a little shorter than I thought) and so nice.  THe line probably wrapped around the store and out the door.  Before he was suppose to start signing he went down the line and shook hands with each person, thanked us all for coming and let us take his picture.  WOW!

I agree that Richard Paul Evans has a similar style. I actually enjoy his writing a bit more than Sparks.

I read The Wednesday Letters, a first book by Jason F. Wright.  The book reminded me of some of Spark's writings........
