Yesterday’s What Shall I Read Next? basically focused on contemporary humorous romances, some of which have a light touch. One author mentioned was the recently deceased Cathie Linz. Honoring her, the Romance Writers of America changed the name of a major
award, presented since 1995, to the RWA Cathie Linz Librarian of the Year award. This award is given to a librarian
who demonstrates outstanding support of romance authors and the romance genre
(Romance Writers of America, 2016).
Winner of Romantic Times awards, Cathie Linz wrote light, fun, humorous novels such as:
