First of all, the easy part: Thanks to everyone who suggested books to be considered. Now, it gets a bit more complicated.
I wanted to stick with in print contemporaries and romantic suspense. I also wanted to hold over three titles from the last poll. It also seemed to be fair to limit the selection to just one choice on the list from each author.
Another note: Books by Nora Roberts were suggested multiple times, but there was no consistency in titles put forward. So, I’m going to table the author for now and see what happens in our next book club poll. Hey, I know, there’s an impressive backlist there and choosing just one isn’t easy.

Coming up with a list of six – three historicals and three contemporaries – wasn’t easy, but, hey, I’m up to the challenge.

And, lastly, each was either suggested by multiple readers on the message board (thanks to everyone for their comments) or came about through discussions amongst Lea, Heather, and me.
