I have gone on a Nora Roberts kick. Some of it has been older stuff (no references to cells phones and internet here) and some more recent. A couple have really caught me because the personalities of her man characters are so atypical, extremely intelligent and showing it in though processes and dialogue, not just told to us by the author, and very quirky personalities.
Read "The Obsession" and "The Search". Both with a serial killer angle, but both with very different main characters and story lines.
And then on the lighter side "Summer Pleses", a two-fer. I loved the dual perspective in both these books and the particularly enjoyed the parallel trains of thought of the two main characters in "Second Nature"
I might have to dive into the JD Robb world of Eve Dallas again. I got a little burnt out on that, but it's been long enough that I can probably suck down another 10 books before I have to take a break again..... just in time to start anticipating "White Hot"
