If you love Lesley Pearse and Susan Lewis, you will love Kathryn Hughes.

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
