    A lot of his books are mysteries, but "The Lake House" was a sequel to the book "When The Wind Blows", which was more of a fantasy/suspence.

    Some of them need to be read in order, and if you'll check his website, http://www.twbookmark.com/features/j...son/index.html, there's a handy reference that shows in what order to read them.

    I've read quite a few of his books, and my favorites so far are the women's murder club mysteries, "1st To Die", "2nd Chance", and "3rd Degree". I also liked "Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas", which is a love story. I had my doubts about whether he could pull it off, but I really enjoyed it.

    I've read the "1st" and "2nd" books, and I swear I bought the "3rd" one, but I can't find it anywhere in my apartment!! Those damn knomes must be back...
    ugh. I don't get time to watch TV anymore, much less hang out at the FORT.

    But don't you worry, I'll be back in full force on or about November 3rd.

    No problem! I bought "Roses are Red" on a whim. It was the first book I had read by him. Then I was hooked, so I started to buy paperbacks of the others- not knowing that they were to be read in a certain order. I was a little lost, too!

    O.k. this is the real thanks because I actually finally got to go to the darn website and look at it! The Alex Cross series sounds like a good read, and the Womens' Murder Club books look good, too. I think I'll go with the Alex Cross series first, though. There's something about a widowed man with children that makes me want to feed them. (or read about them).

    I've only read Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, and that book drove me to tears... I look forward to reading more of his books...
    Let's give them something to talk about

    I've started to read that. I'll see if I shed any tears. I probably will.

    Violets are Blue

    I'm so smart, they should give me a prize.

    Okay I've done a couple of his books on unabridged audio but I forget which ones.

    I read When the Wind Blows - and am the only person I know who actually liked the book.

    I've read all 3 books in the "Women's Murder Club" series (ala 1st to Die, 2nd Whatever, 3rd Degree) and love it - although I think the female characters are a bit wooden at times.
