    I think it is Tess Gerritson. I love her books. Harvest, Bloodline, Life Support and Gravity. I think are the titles.

    Lee Child, Jack DuBrul, Patterson, Nevada Barr, Michael Connelly, PT Deutermann. These are just a few of my favorites. janet Evanovich's books are just down right funny. Also anything by Dave Barry is hilarious. All the books I have are in audio format so the readers make a BIG difference. I do like Tess Gerritsen and did enjoy The Da Vinci Code and Digital Fortress by Dan Brown. Lots to choose. Mike

    Sue Monk Kidd-author of Secret Life of Bees. I loved that book, read it twice.

    Also The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith. Wonderful, wonderful book, I'm looking forward to reading the entire series about that intrepid Lady Detective.

    Starting to read Eragon, by Paolini. It's a kid's book in the way Harry Potter is a kids' book, but I still loved them.

    The Douglas Adam's Hitchhiker's series.

    Edit to add: How could I forget?: Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven. Both made me laugh and cry.

    The Secret Life of Bees is by Sue Monk Kidd . . . great book!

    The House of God by Samuel Shem . . . .its an older book about interns. I'm almost finished and have spoken with some of the docs I work with who trained in the same time period and they say "yep, that is how it was". Which I find amazing . . I'm almost finished.

    My next book will Carson McCullers "The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter".

    Just finished Hidden Prey by John Sandford...love these books, total diversionary read. He has a series, all of them have "Prey" in the title, no need to read in order, each one stands alone.

    I also finished The Taking by Dean Koontz recently, not bad if you enjoy Koontz, but not nearly as scary to me as his earlier books are.

    "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" by Mitch Albom.

    One of the best books I've ever read! (And I've got a degree in English )
