A quick Google search reveals that Crusie fans should try:
- Janet Evanovich (yes, although Stephanie Plum is getting stale)
- Helen Fielding (no, her heroine doesn't grab life by the throat)
- Sophie Kinsella (yes, although her books as Madeleine Wickham are miles better)
- Jennifer Weiner (yes to the humour, no to the writing style)
- Susan Elizabeth Phillips (will try)
- Katie Fforde (tried but couldn't get into the book).
