I believe the first excerpt of Lean Mean is to come out March 1st, or there about on Janet's site. I imagine it will probably be posted at Amazon/Barnes-Noble also. How many here are going to be reading Innocent ID?

Yes, seems we are all trying to pass the time as easily as possible. When does the first installment of Lean, Mean 13 come out? Thanks!

Hi All - Looks like we're trying to keep outselves busy until the next Plum fix. A lot of great suggestions on other books to read. Thanks Everyone. I can't wait until Tuesday to buy Innocent In Death by JD Robb - I've already reserved it. CA - I know you're waiting too... along with several others here. Has anyone read the Dark-Hunter Series by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I'm confused by whether these books need to be read in order or if The Dream Hunter can by read as a stand alone. If anyone knows, please let me know. It looks interesting, and the guy on the front could be Roarke. Very Yummy. LOL. Does anyone plan on reading Hot Stuff - the book co-authored with Leanne Banks? It sounds very Plum and Metro. It might be good, but sometimes to much of the same thing isn't always a good thing. I might go ahead and read it since it comes out in April and we still have until June for Lean Mean. We only have a few weeks before the first excerpt of Lean Mean and I would imagine the messages here will really start to pick up once the excerpt is posted.

Ok, for some good books (while waiting for my favorite Evanovich books), try Iris Johansen, some very yummy hero (not as great as Ranger...but still... yummy). Oh for for a really good laugh...try "Welcome to Temptation" by Jennfer Cruise. Or try Linda Howard. I've read all the Nora R. JD Robb, they are great...try some of the ones above. Enjoy

I agree with the reading lists suggested so far; Patricia Cornwell (Kay Scarpetta Series), Sandra Brown (she doesn't do character series), Tess Gerritsen (Jane Rizzoli/Maura Isles Series), Maeve Binchey (non-series similar to Sandra Brown novels), Lisa Gardner (Pierce Quincy Series) Sarah Strohmeyer (Bubbles Yablonsky Series) these are so, so funny, very close to Stephanie Plum but only one heart-throb, and Robert B. Parker (Spenser Series) and lastly my ALL TIME FAVORITE is Faye Kellerman and it is a series (Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus Series) excellent!! and Ms. Kellerman personally answers your e-mail. Happy Reading!!

CA, Thanks for the help on Plum books. Our reading history is the same, I also started reading again last June.
I just finished Plum book "To The Nines" I am hooked and will look for her first books. They made me laugh out loud. I read Nora's Irish Trilogy, great reading and to be read in order for sure. I finished all of Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta series, loved most of them until the last couple. She seemed to change styles. I read Led Astray, Sandra Brown was her first which was originally published in a Pen Name. I have become a maniac collecting books so that I can read them in order. Waiting for the first couple of J.A. Jance books, which I ordered on line, she is a good mystry writer, I read one in the middle of series.

Hi Patty - I definitely recommend starting with One For The Money, which is the first in the series. I also started reading avidly last June when my sister gave me One For The Money. I couldn't wait to read the rest of the books in the Plum series and ended up reading all 12 books in about 3 weeks. I just read Plum Lovin, the novella that just came out last month. The last time I took any interest in reading was back when I was in High School. Now I can't seem to get through the week without at least making my way through one or two books. I'm still trying to decide which trilogy of Nora's to start with, but I'll wait until after I read Innocent In Death, in the In Death series by JD Robb/Nora Roberts, on the 20th. I also just started a book by Melissa Clark, Swimmming Upstream Slowly. Most of the books I've read recently have grabbed me from the beginning, but this one's a little slow. I'm about 1/2 through and still seeking the funny, moving, and sexy way this book has described. It has an interesting story line, but nothing has reached out and grabbed me yet. I hope it happens soon. I also have Sandra Brown on my to read list and also Diana Gabaldon, with the Outlander series.

I just started reading avidly last summer on vacation, since I have gone nuts. Started with all of Patricial Cornwell's Scarpetta, then Nora's Irish Triology, Sandra Brown, Led Astray, etc.
Now reading Evanovich,To The Nines, just a few pages in, I love her writing.
Question: Should I read these in order of publish? In the past the I found that to be true in series books. PC especially and Irish Tri.
I started buying books at yard sales and 2nd hand stores to keep at our Lake house for others to read, then I thought why not me?
Live in NW Indiana and it is a freezer here.

I read the Night series by NR. I also liked it. It is five stories condensed into three books. There is a sixth story that is not related to the rest of the characters from the first five, but it was okay. They are all about people with jobs at night, mostly cops. Good romance with mysteries. I am reading the In the Garden series now. It is a little slow, however, I am not that far into the first book. A lot of talk about plants.

Hi all! haven't posted for awhile but appreciate the E Peters suggestion. For NR's fans who like mystery/romance I'd recommend the MacKade Brothers series.I don't think it's been republished but might find used. Night Tales is one of my favorites. It's 3 republished in one book, plus sequel Night Shield. Also the Stars of Mithra series has smart heroines who meet great guys. Been rereading JA Krentz's old ones to forestall boredom waiting for next ID and 13.
