I am on maternity leave (due on 13 November), and would like some recommendations for nice easy to follow books. Preferably ones I can get cheaply in paperback. I like Jilly Cooper and Marian Keyes.

Louise Bagshawe, Tasmina Perry, Sophie Kinsella
All kinda trashy beach reads but decent stories.

Try Mile High by Rebecca Chance, that might be of interest

Fiona Walker, if you like Jilly Cooper's countryside/horsey/county set stuff. Particularly French Relations, Well Groomed and Kiss and Tell.

Jackie Collins - easy to read, well written, can be a little racy, good stories

James Patterson - not chick lit, but chapters tend to be short and I find his books very easy to read. He does a variety of genres including detective and darker subjects. Very good books.

Jeffrey Archer - I really enjoy his books and get engrossed in them. They tend to be political or business themed, and well written.

Jilly Cooper is my all time fave but a close second is Penny Vincenzi

Jill Mansell is trashy and funny.
