Small-Town Romances Make It Big

Harvest Moon by Robyn CarrIt all started with Robyn Carr's Virgin River series. Or maybe not. Maybe the genesis can be traced to Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove, or Susan Wiggs' Lakeshore Chronicles.

Borders romance buyer Sue Grimshaw has polled readers on why they love these books so much.
