There are just too many of my faves here to mention why I like each one and keep this comment somewhat short.

Romance (Romantic Suspense): Karen Ball and Colleen Coble - I feel like I am catching a glimpse into what God intended romance to be...a guilty pleasure...But, endearing moments are often captured in the writing of these two wonderfully gifted women.
Dee Henderson has captivated me with her stories, also. I feel as though I am transported to where her characters are and hanging over their shoulder, experiencing all the wonder and excitement along with the fear and edge of the seat anticipation. Lorena McCourtney is yet another of my faves in the suspense. I have spent many nights unwilling to turn in despite my need to do so.

Legal thrillers: James Scott Bell has had me hooked from the first one of his books I purchased years ago. Can't say enough about the twists and crazy, mind numbingly great story plots. Again, MANY nights spent with far too little sleep. LOVE IT!!! Brandilyn Collins - I have only read Violet Dawn so far. Have yet to read Coral Moon, but have it. Still the first book captivated my attention.

Historical Fiction: Tricia Goyer-I think it is known that I absolutely adore you and am completely fixated on the talent and skills God has given you. I am transported back in time, living in an era of my grandparents. I experience a life that is so different from today and can't help become engrossed.

I am finishing this comment, knowing there are so many others I would love to express my impressions of. But, this is already quite lengthy.
