    Jane Green books are great - and also Dorothy Koomsons especially My Best Friends Girl.

    Have you tried the Madeleine Wickham books? Its the real name of Sophie Kinsella. The books are not written in the same jokey/farcical way as the Shopaholic/Can you keep a secret/Undomestic Goddess books, but are still written very well and enjoyable.

    Also you don't mention if you have read 'Can you keep a secret?' or 'Undomestic Goddess' both are in a similar vein to the Shopaholic series and a great read.

    HTH

    P.S: Just thought of another author that I absolutely love, and have all of his books - have you tried the Mike Gayle books? They are modern relationship type stories, very well written. Once I pick up one of his books I find it hard not to just sit and read it cover to cover

    Marian Keyes books are worth a read and early Fiona Walker too.

    There's a new one out by Sophie Kinsella who wrote the shopaholic books called 'Remember Me?' - I've not read it but seen it in Asda.

    Jane Green is a very good read, also Lisa Jewell and Dorothy Koomson (especially My Best Friends Girl).

    Remeber me is a bit odd. Basically, and I'm not giving anythng away here, it's pretty much what it says on the back, this man is persuaded to ake a blood donation. This woman receives a transfusion. She has all these memories of places/peopl/things she doesn't know. The man and woman keep meeting up accidentally. I don't think it's as good as PS I Love You or where Rainbows end (my favourite of her books). Some of the bits with the dad are quite funny.

    I read a book the other week called Extra Confessions of a Working Girl (it's a sequel, I hadn't read the first, but there is very little, if any, reference to the first book in there). It's written by a prostitute-Miss S-about her time working, in this one, as a dancer in a strip club, in a massage parlour and in an escort agency in London. It's very good.

    Another good book that I read recently was Call the Midwife. Written by a nurse/midwife who worked in the east end of London in the early fifties I think. It was fascinating reading about how hinks were done back then (it may just hve been me as I'm just qualifying as a nurse, and she does disucss some nursing in there, and seeing how it was done 50 years ago).

    Im a bit confused lol I think you might have Remember Me mixed up with another book?? Remember Me is by Sophie Kinsella, the other ones you mention are by Ceceila Aherne.

    Remember me is about a girl who wakes up in hospital and has complete amnesia and discovers shes married to a mutli millionaire. She hates the life she discovers she now lives.
