I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty much a sucker for any book set in a small town. Really, though, it has to be more than just that. It needs to be about a community. I think we can all use a little bit of community these days, fictional or not. So, I decided to put together a list of some of my favorites.
You may or may not realize that in the last decade scores of talented writers have decided to forgo traditional publishing and chosen instead to embrace a more entrepreneurial way of getting their books into the hands of readers. For you, the reader, it shouldn’t matter how the book came to you, only that, for the 350 pages it was with you, it touched your life in some way.
If you are like me, you don’t have the time or the money to waste on books you just don’t like. And, the books your best friend loves may not be the books you love. While reviews on the internet have helped many readers understand more about a book than just the back cover reveals, sometimes those aren’t really helpful either.
It all comes down to personal taste.

This is a list of fiction.
