Finished Proposal late last night. I couldn't put it down. Balogh's ability to get inside the reader's head and, in my case anyway, the heart, through her characters makes her, imo, a master of her craft.
Next on my list is her Slightly Dangerous, followed by Simply Love.
Who woulda thought, even two months ago, I would get hooked on romantic fiction, a guy who couldn't get enough of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch. Go figure.
As an aside, I live only a 45 minute drive from Mary Balogh's home in Regina, Saskatchewan, and she has a granddaughter attending the technical institute in my hometown of Moose Jaw. Also, I didn't know how well known she is in Saskatchewan literary circles until I started searching out her books.
Is there any reason why you can't continue with the Survivor's Club series? It really helps to read them in order as they are all cross referenced and mutually interactive.
