‘Melissa writes about charming, ambitious, and real women. She is a bestselling author of fourteen Romantic Comedy and Cozy Mystery novels and novellas.’ I’ve personally read a few of her books and they’ve all been fantastic and she’s got the perfect writing style of leaving you happy with what you’ve read but wanting more so that you can’t wait to read the next one. If you’re looking for lots of excitement and laughter this is a great author to choose.

Tracie’s written 5 romantic comedies and I’ve personally read all but one – though the last one is on my kindle reader for future enjoyment! Her books are filled with strong and unique characters and each book is better than the last. I highly recommend her writing!

‘Telling Stories of Resilient Women with Humor, Heart, and a Happy Ending’ perfectly sums up Kathryn’s writing. Her books are filled with heart-felt stories and her stories include a range of women’s fiction, contemporary romance, and chick-lit/romantic comedy.

5. Gina Calanni
Gina’s women’s fiction novels are sure to make your mouth water – as her books tend to include baking! She’s not just a fantastic author that enjoys running as much as she enjoys baking, she’s also a strong advocate for multiple women’s issues and recently ran and won the Texas House District 132! ‘At the end of the day Gina’s glass of wine is always half full.’

‘Laura Chapman is the award-winning and Amazon best-selling author of romantic novels and novellas.’ I discovered Laura Chapman’s books a few years ago back when I read the Marrying Type. Since then I’ve read just about everything she’s written and I highly recommend all of her books!

8. Addison Cole
Addison Cole is the sweet alter ego pen-name for the Sweet with Heat versions of sexy novels by Melissa Foster. ‘She writes humorous and emotional sweet contemporary romance.’ If you want romance that doesn’t include full bedroom scenes then this is the author for you! There’s tons of fun series to get lost in although they are written to be read as stand-alone so you can pick up any pick whenever you feel like it and not be totally lost.
9. Geralyn Corcillo
Geralyn’s works include a fantastic collection of fun girly chick-lit filled with unique characters and heart-warming stories. Do yourself a favor and go read everything she’s written! Fun fact – a quote from one of my book reviews is featured on the top of her website!!

10. Michele Gorman
Michele is an American-born British author and I love her unique perspective. I haven’t read many of her novels but I’ve loved the ones I have read and I’ve heard tons of great things about her other stories!
11. Hilary Grossman
Hilary’s writing is little bit women’s fiction and a little bit chick-lit and either way you look at it, all of her books are thoroughly enjoyable. Her sense of fun shows in her writing, and I mean, hello… her website address is ‘Feeling Beachie’. Yup!

12. Jenny Hale
Jenny has a great collection of holiday chick-lit/romance novels and mainly focuses on summer at the beach and white Christmases. Fun fact – ‘The film adaptation of her novel Coming Home for Christmas was part of Hallmark Channel’s 2017 lineup.’

13. Tracy Krimmer
‘Tracy enjoys reading great books (of course) and writing realistic characters for you to enjoy.’ Hands down I love everything Tracy has written and while reading her books I find myself both entertained and personally inspired. I highly recommend her books!

14. Cat Lavoie
How appropriate that Cat loves cats! #CatSquad – check out her website if you have no clue what I’m talking about. I haven’t read everything Cat’s written but I really enjoyed Messing With Matilda and look forward to reading her other novels too!

15. Nikki LeClair
Nikki’s a woman after my own heart; ‘When she isn’t sitting behind her laptop constructing new adventures, she’s chasing her two little girls, brewing a pot of her current favorite tea, or admiring a fine glass of Pinot Noir.’ Nikki’s books are just like her – fun and intriguing. I personally loved one of her latest novels Reuniting Reality.

16. Samantha March
Samantha is not only a great author but she’s also a social media lioness and beauty blogger and you can find her over at Chick Lit Plus. Her books mostly fall into the women’s fiction category but she’s also got a new series out about six friends that is filled with drama and lots of excitement.

17. Maria Murnane
I’ve read quite a few of Maria’s books and the ones I haven’t are at the top of my TBR list. Fun fact – After discovering Maria’s books and falling in love with her writing, I discovered that we’re Delta Gamma sisters when I saw one of her books featured in an issue of the Anchora!

18. Meredith Schorr
‘Meredith found her calling writing smart, sassy romantic comedy, women’s fiction, and contemporary young adult fiction.’ Similar to some of the other authors listed I haven’t read everything Meredith has written but I’ve loved what I have read. Her book The Boyfriend Swap was so incredibly entertaining!
19. Sue Watson
I discovered Sue Watson’s books through NetGalley and am so grateful I did! Her books are fun and flirty and tend to have the main character be a fierce woman in her second wind of adulthood rather than her character’s being in their early 30’s. Her books are refreshing and I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a laugh and a bit of romance!
