Heather Waters (aka redline_) and I were talking about much beloved authors whom others loved, but we just didn't get—until we read one of their books that just clicked for us, and we ended up loving the author.
For Heather, she fell in love with Eloisa James's writing after reading The Ugly Duchess. I fell in love with Laura Kinsale's writing after reading Shadowheart (not Flowers from the Storm, surprisingly!).
What was your author, and her 'click' book?
