Right now, I am devouring Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson. It's about a 47 year old woman with severe memory loss after some type of an accident when she was 29. She wakes up every day not knowing where she is or who her husband is. She starts to keep a journal at the suggestion of a doctor. There is a lot of suspense, mostly about the nature of her "accident", which her husband lies about and doesn't appear to want her to remember.

Yes, I just read 11/22/63 by King, and enjoyed it very, very much ! I also recommend King's Under the Dome if you have previously enjoyed King's The Stand.
Any of the Kate Morton books are fantastic~ Maggie, did you read the others by Morton ? They are all soooo good.
I plan to read as many Diane Chamberlain novels as I can, until I get sick of them. Really liked The Midwife's Confession.
Other novels that I highly recommend are
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh;
The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman;
State of Wonder by Ann Patchett;
What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty;
Before I Go to Sleep by S. J. Watson ;
The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom ;
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan;
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer;
The Help by Kathryn Stockett;
The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer;
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
Cutting For Stone by Abraham Verghese
Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman
Anything by Kate Morton, Sarah Addison Allen, Barbara Kingsolver, Lisa See, Stieg Larsson, Mitch Albom , and Chris Bohjalian
I read about three novels a week so have gone through quite a lot of books over the past few years. The ones above really stood out for me.

Just started The Submission by Amy Waldman. It's about a memorial for the victims of 9/11, but the twist is that the anonymous designer of the project is revealed to be an American Muslim.
