[close] Are you having difficulty recalling the title of a favorite romance novel? Here's the place to post your plot(s) and let fellow romance readers help you identify your book. Every new book search should be a new topic! Also don't forget to edit the book search title and put SOLVED once it has been solved. This way it will be easier to see which book searches have been solved. Every author (in What happened to... folder) should be added as a new topic! That way we will avoid duplicates. Please come back often and check whether your elusive title has been solved. It can be solved in a minute, an hour, a day, a month, a year or two or more. It can be solved by a new or old member of the group or by you. Please do come back and let us know whether your book search has been solved. Tips: When posting a book search try to write down everything you can remember about the book. Be clear and specific as possible. How old is the book? Is it from the 70s, 80s, 90s or 2000? What is the cover like? How thick was the book or how many pages? Was it a hardback? Did you read it on Kindle? Any detail no matter how small might trigger someone's memory and help in the search. Thank you.
