Better Off Without Him. Dee Ernst's romantic comedy has 127 customer reviews and a strong 4.5-star rating. It has 267 pages, and many reviewers describe it as "laugh out loud funny." Here's the setup: Mona is a best-selling Romance writer, and happy endings are what she does best. So when her husband of twenty years leaves her for somebody 15 years younger, 20 pounds lighter, and French, she’s got a lot of adjusting to do, both personally and professionally. Lucky for her she’s got three savvy teen daughters, a few good friends, and Ben, the world’s sexiest plumber, to help her along the way. She dives into her next book... but can she write her own happy ending?

Two Scoops of Grace with Chuckles on Top. Jeanette Levellie applies her wit and her spiritual wisdom to the little incidents that make up everyday life. A pastor's wife, Jeanette has touched a chord with many, reaching the top ten in Amazon's Parent & Families category. 

The Dirty Parts of the Bible -- A Novel. Sam Torode's humorous novel has an impressive 279 customer reviews, and a rating of 4.5 stars. The book was a semifinalist in Amazon's Breakthrough Novel Award. The premise: It's 1936, and Tobias Henry is stuck in the frozen hinterlands of Michigan. Tobias is obsessed with two things: God and girls. When his baptist preacher father is blinded in a bizarre accident (involving hard cider and bird droppings), Tobias must ride the rails to Texas to recover a long-hidden stash of money. But when he meets Sarah, a tough farm girl under a dark curse, he finds out that the greatest challenge of all is love.
