Does anybody know if Robin Lee Hatcher books are good? They sound interesting, but I don't want to order one until I have a better idea. Are they a light read? Are they deep and emotional? Do they seem to deal with the same issues? If so, what are they? Anyway, just wondering. Thanks in advance!

i really like her books, i've read her historical and contemporary. i wouldn't say they are light fiction, but they're not heavy. i'd compare it to angela hunt or karen kingsbury. and they're all different stories, she's a really good author.

She is one of my favorite authors.  She is a very good writer.  Just be careful when ordering her books because she used to write secular romance...so if you are wanting Christian romance only, then be sure you are getting her Christian books (she changed from secular to Christian writing a few years ago).

The "Coming to America" series is pretty good.  "Speak to me of Love" is another good one.

I just finished reading her book Beyond The Shadows and was amazed at how good the book was.  I had read some of her other books and while they were good this one was just fantastic.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction.

I have to agree with Patricia, be careful about her books.  Some of the ones she wrote recently are good, but I've also inadvertently gotten ones that were written secular and they have tried to clean them up and market in the Christian market.  I read one where it was very obvious that was what they had done.
