Amy (amylwood) | 1 comments Hi everyone! I am new to the GoodReads site! At the beginning of the year I began reading books by James Patterson and Lisa Gardner and I loved them! I am now looking for some authors that are similar to them. I loved the Alex Cross series! I have really fell in love with mystery books. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Ellenjsmellen | 7 comments Try author Stuart Woods. He's got a couple of series. I especially like the Stone Barrington series because he's hot!

Sandy (pixiesand) I fell in love with Donna Andrews' Meg Langslow books. They all have birds in the titles. The first one is Murder with Peacocks.

Anna I like the Michael Connolley (not sure if that is spelled correctly) books with Harry Bosch.

I used to like the Kellerman books (both Jonathon and Fay), but I find them too dark now.

Michele Try Jeffrey Deaver, he's one of my favorites, especially the Lincoln Rhyme series.

Chrissy315 Jones | 2 comments I'm currently reading the Abby Cooper Psychic Eye series by Victoria Laurie. I'm really enjoying her books. They are a fast read that keeps you guessing and entertained.

Suzanne | 21 comments I just foundJoy Fielding. She's really good. I've already read quite a few of her books.

Susan Lots of good authors here already but I will add a new favorite of mine. Try Kate Pepper Five Days in Summer! I just finished it and had no idea who did it until the end of the book!

message 11: by Suzanne (new)

Suzanne | 21 comments Yes, Kate Pepper is very good also. Hers are so suspenseful.
Susan, have you read Seven Minutes to Noon?
I had no idea who did it until the very end! Well, I had my suspicions but didn't REALLY think it could be that person.
I hate Five Days in Summer on my Bookmooch wish list.

Thriller (KayRenofan) | 3 comments I recently read "Stand-In" by a new author named Kay Reno. It was VERY good... it is also even more cool because she lives here in Branch county and the story is set here... made me really feel like I was "in" it!!!!
