I love the Elm Creek Quilts series by Jennifer Chiaverini...a great premise, fun characters, and not too much romance/blah blah stuff.

Anyone know of any similar series?

Much appreciated!

Debbie Macomber's knitting series sounds similar.

How about the Beni Harper series by Earlene Fowler.  The first one is Fool's Puzzle.

There are some scrapbook mysteries by Laura Child, which are similar.  If needlework is of interest, you may wish to give Monica Ferris' series a try as well! 

 

So many books, so little time...

Funny, funny...

1. I adore Laura Childs.

2. I just got RABCKed the entire Earlene Fowler series

3. I just got Monica Ferris's first via PBS

4. I just finished Susan Wittig Albert's first today, via library.

 

Great minds think alike. :)
