I recently listened to the Kowalski Family series by Shannon Stacey. There are only three books so far and I need more now! Each book left me giddy and ready to read (listen to) the next. I asked Twitter what I should read next to tide me over until the next Kowlaski book. Then I had an idea. Why not ask FV readers what they would recommend for Shannon Stacey fans? If you guys come through for me, I might make this a semi-regular feature so the pressure is on!
Here’s how we’ll do it: I’ll tell you what I liked about the Kowalski series, and you tell me what to read based on that.
I’m a big fan of romances that incorporate big families with lots of kids. I like endings and epilogues that involve babies, and weddings and all that. The Kowalski books have it and while they are a big happy family, they have their share of family trouble. But they are not dysfunctional. They make you want to be a part of the family and I really like that. They are a family that plays together. They interfere in each other’s lives a little bit but not too much and it’s always out of love.
I also like that these romances focus on the romance. No need for major external conflict, it’s just the couple and their developing relationship, figuring it all out among family and friends that love them.
Finally, I adore the secondary romances that develop throughout the stories. We had an established romances that had hard times, a second chance romance and in the third book, it was someone in the older generation that discovers a new relationship and I loved that.
I’ll be reading more from Shannon Stacey, but what other books can you recommend that you think will appeal to me based on what I’ve told you about the Kowalski Family series?
