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.

Authors are being asked by their editors to make the switch from their current genre to these community-based books. Others are retuning for pure love of the setting and the themes inherent to small-town living. Stephanie Bond has blogged about the process of developing such a series. Borders romance buyer Sue Grimshaw has polled readers on why they love these books so much.
