NotAQueef - First Last Kiss was set where I live. It was funny being able to picture the places where various scenes took place.

We seem to have similar tastes in books so I'll have to check out the others you have mentioned.

I second the recommendation for Dorothy Koomson - I've read every book she has written. Always brilliant.

Angels Yes, do - Emily Barr's are always set in part in another country so I like that element. Cuban Heels, and the Backpack are ones I've re-read.
I love reading or watching things set in places I've lived - though where I live now is unlikely to appear anywhere in fiction

Just finished You Had Me At Hello by Mhairi Mcfarlane. Debut novel, recommended by Marian Keyes on Twitter. I enjoyed it.

Also Jojo Moyes as others have said.

I've just finished Rose Petal Beach by Dorothy Koomson, I could not put it down. Definitely worth a read!

Not really chick-lit, but I would recommend This Is How It Ends by Kathleen MacMahon. I finished reading it last night. It really is good.

Try some of the debut authors out there. And I agree, all the authors mentioned above are excellent. The rest of us aspire to these standards of excellence...

Surprised no one has mentioned Harriet Evans yet. Havent tried her latest but the last one was excellent.

I loved Milly Johnson, the Yorkshire Pudding Club, but then I read it when I was of with my first, booked in at the hospital in the book.

I second Lisa Jewell.

Ali McNamara is my new find! She is very good. I also recommend Katie Fforde!

Christina Jones (she's fab), Carole Matthews, Milly Johnson, Catherine Alliott, Trisha Ashley, Jill Mansell - they're all brilliant. Oh and Jenny Colgan and Chrissie Manby are fab too...

Mhairi McFarlane is brill.
