I forgot to mention - if you're a fan of brit-chick-lit, like Bridget Jones or the Shopaholic series, you should check out Melissa Nathan. I've read The Nanny, The Waitress and The Learning Curve, and thoroughly enjoyed them all. The acknowledgements in the last one mentioned that in all probability the novel was going to be published posthumously, so this may be all there is to enjoy of her writing. If you're into that genre, check out these books.
Update: I googled Melissa Nathan, she did indeed pass away this year, but she has written a few more books that I didn't know about, so I'll be looking for those when I head to the library tomorrow. I'll post about them if they're any good.
