I tend to read what I write, but not exclusively. My current read is a Gothic Mystery Romance by Alicia Dean entitled Lady in the Mist. I'm only a chapter into it, but I'm thoroughly enjoying the read. I also read detective thrillers, WWII historicals, mysteries, and some main stream character driven novels.
Here are some of the books I've read recently. Maybe you'll discover a new book or author!
Candy, Corpses, and Classified Ads by J L Wilson
One thing, and there are many, I like about J L's books are the heroes and heroines have a little distance on them. They've had past romances or marriages, and they have some depth of character from life's experiences. In C, C, and C, JT McCord jilted Molly Lawford twenty years ago. She survived, married twice, but her first husband died and her second ran off with a hairdresser. JT is back and Molly wants to resist him. But there's a body, a marauding pig, and all sorts of suspense to get them entangled since he's back as the Chief of Police. This is a lot of fun and a highly recommended read.

The Unsung Hero by Suzanne Brockman
After a near-fatal head injury, Navy SEAL lieutenant Tom Paoletti catches a glimpse of an international terrorist in his New England hometown. The Navy won't believe him because of his head injury. He has to take saving the day into his own hands with crew he brings together which includes the girl-next-door he left behind. The action is good and so is the romance. An entertaining read. By the way, this is the first book of the Troubleshooters Series.
The Treasure of Como Bluff by Alison Henderson
Something about a woman doing a supposedly "man's job" and being so good at it makes for a fun read. When Caroline convinces the handsome Nick to pose as the paleontologist...well it's just plain fun. This is a sweet western romance you're sure to enjoy.
