Bitchery reader Maya sent me a very smart idea: we need recommendations for the funny-funny romance novels.
As an aspiring writer myself, I’m interested to study what works in comedic writing (I’m plenty capable of finding what doesn’t work in comedic writing myself). Has the bitchery every compiled such a list ? If not – dare I hope the question might be thrown out there ?
If someone asked me, for example, I’d lead off with
Mr. Impossible – Loretta Chase – (historical -Egypt)
Crocodile on the Sandbank – Elizabeth Peters – (historical – Egypt)
Fame Fatale – Wendy Holden – (contemporary – Britain)
Pastures Nouveaux – Wendy Holden – (contemporary – Britain)
Alice, I Think, Miss Smithers, Alice McLeod, Realist at Last – Susan Juby – (young adult contemporary trilogy, Canada)
So bring on the hilarity – what funny romance novels, historical OR contemporary, do you recommend?
