    Can anyone recommend

    Another good read like the Elm Creek Series...I love that series and I'm catching up to her last book and want something else similar to fall back on...Any help would be appreciated.

    Emile Richards' Shenandoah Valley Series, beginning with Wedding Ring, is one of my favorite Quilt novel authors. Each book (named after a quilt pattern) is about a different character in the the first novel. There used to be a quilt novel book club on this board where we all read a book & then discussed it. here's the link

    Thank you very much. I read one of her books and enjoyed it very much. The library didn't have anymore of her books. By the time I went back, I forgot what her name was, so I was unable to ask for more. Now I have her name and I can go back and see if they have any more of her books.

    You are right, it was an excellent book!

    http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/ If you go to this website you can look up your favorite authors. They will list the books they've written in chronological order, which is nice if you want to read a series in order. At the bottom of the page they have recommendations of similar books/authors. I've found lots of good reads that way.

    Abebooks.com is a wonderful resource for used books that are, for the most part, very inexpensive. Look there for titles of books you want to purchase. Sometimes you can find them for 1.00 dollar. Gina

    I would recommend any of the books in the Benni Harper series by Earlene Fowler. I think there are 14 or 15 of them now, some are available at audible.com too.
