I need a new book -- what's a good one you liked and kinda describe it a bit -- 

I especially like books that have chicks who are the lead characters -- 

and btw -- I just finished watching mcleod's daughters -- it was a perfect tv show for me -- it was about a bunch of chicks who run a cattle/sheep farm in western australia in current day -- like 224 episodes!!! it was wonderful -- it's on amazon prime -- loved it!

Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels are hysterical.  Stephanie is a Jersey girl, bounty hunter who loves big hair, makeup and birthday cake.  She is  not a very good one and tends to get herself in trouble a lot.  She has a boyfriend who is a cop and a sorta of boyfriend who is a badass that sometimes helps her apprehend criminals.  There are at least 15 of them and start with numbers - One for the Money, and on and on.

Another series we thoroughly enjoyed was Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone novels.  Kinsey is a private investigator and, much like Stephanie, doesn't start out as the best in the West!  This series starts with the letter A is for..... and goes right through the alphabet.  I think X or Y was the last book because Sue Grafton passed away.

McLeod's Daughters sounds wonderfull.  I am going to check out Netflix.

I heard many good things about, "The Wife Between Us", and I can see why. I just started, but have a hard time putting it down. Rave reviews on it.

Other books that I loved, loved, loved were Margret Mitchell's Gone With The Wind, Jean Auel's The Clan of the Cave Bear series and The Mists of Avalon by Mation Zimmer Bradley.

Of course, you are familiar with Gone With The Wind.  The Clan of the Cave Bear is about a cro magnan woman who was captured by a tribe of neanderthals, so would not appeal to everyone, but I loved the whole series.  I think there are four, maybe five books.  The Mists of Avalon  is a story based upon the King Arthur legend.  I am a huge fan and this is the best of the genre.

Best you read The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorn when you were in high school.  If you didn't, it is so worth reading. I also loved Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory MaGuire.

I could go on and on (can you tell that I am a reader?)...........
