This is such a great question, and my answer would have to be The Dakota Born trilogy, by Debbie Macomber. It's quite an old one of hers I think, but it's certainly a goodie. I just loved the characters.What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down?
It's set in the North Dakota prairie town of Buffalo Valley and is the story of a town that is dying. Shops are boarded up, families are moving away, and very few members of the younger generation want to stay in the small town, instead seeking the excitment of city lights further away. However, a few of the younger generation from the city, head to the country and make for some delightful storylines!
You can read my review of the trilogy here - it's certainly one I'd recommend, if you can afford to go without sleep!
