  1. I adore Jennifer Estep! I’m so glad you found her because she is just one of my favorite authors! I have read like 4 or 5 of her series and I’ve loved every single one of them!

  3. I actually have only read Jennifer Estep in that list. Glad you found some good ones! I’d say my favorite new-to-me author in 2018 was Danielle Garrett (I see Melanie wrote that too!) She’s got a great paranormal mystery series. Thanks!

    • I had fun with the Yates novel I read A Tall, Dark Cowboy Christmas and I just picked up book 1 from my library in the series and am looking forward to read it. You are the one who put Yates on my want to read list. I see a lot of her books on your blog. Thank you!! ^_^

  6. I havent read any of these authors but I have a bunch of them on my TBR! Always good finding new authors you love.

    • It is a join to finally read an author I’ve had on my TBR or try out someone I haven’t even heard of. Thank’s for stopping in.

  7. I’ve read a couple of Katie Ruggle books but that’s it from your list.

  9. I’ve read Katie Ruggle and Jennifer Estep. I really enjoy both. My new-to-me authors were Danielle Garrett, Margaret Atwood, Melissa F. Olson, Susan Furlong, Nora Roberts, Justina Ireland, D.D. Ayres, and Keri Arthur. Wow that list was longer than I would’ve thought. I hope you have just as many great new-to-you authors in 2019

    • Great list. I’ve read D.D. Ayres and like her K-9 Rescue series, Primal Force was my favorite one to read in it. I’ve also read Danielle Garrett, I need to get back to her Beechwood Harbor Magic Mystery series. I like it, but have only read the first 2 books. Oh, I forgot to add Keri Arthur to my list too. I read her Spook Squad series and loved the 3 books in it. Wish their where more, but it looks like no more coming. ^_^
      Thank’s for visiting and sharing you new to me’s. I love to hear what others have discovered.
