  21. Contemporary isn't something I read a lot of, so I had to wait to see what others suggest.

    My first pick would be:

    1. Can`t go wrong with Love Inspired. Good luck, Trixi.

    1. I love Kara Isaac and Melissa Tagg. I read Close to You and loved it and now I think Kara Isaac has a second one out with a Narnia bend to it. Must check that out. Good luck, Trixi.

      Delete
    2. Yes, Can't Help Falling. I've read/reviewed it, it wasn't something that stuck out to me. But it has rave reviews so don't let that deter you. Most readers loved it. I guess I'm more of a Hobbit fan than Narnia, so the first one would probably hold more appeal to me. Hope you get to read it soon Kav!

      Delete
    3. I'm a Narnia girl all the way!

  30. I am discovering several new books from reading the comments. I don't read quite as much contemporary as historical fiction, but it was interesting to browse around some publisher websites plus bookstores and get ideas.
