I second Anne of Green Gables. Then watch the movies. They are so lighthearted and have everything you need! :)

I second the Rita Mae Brown suggestion. The Sister Jane foxhunting series are good mysteries with lots of horses!

Oryx and Crake is an amazing book as well! And the Game of Thrones series too.

And, my all time favorite, anything by Dick Francis.

I own the collection Anne books, and even have a first edition copy of, "Anne's House Of Dreams", (delightfully beginning with her marriage to Gilbert and their new life on the Canadian seashore)... Agree 100% about the movies as well!! - I first saw them aired on PBS (starring Megan Follows/Jonathan Crombie) back in the '80's, and own the entire dvd collection... I wouldn't be able to guess how many times I've watched them over the years - So cool that my husband really likes watching them too! They're timeless. :)

I like the Kate Shugak series by Dana Stabenow.
The characters are quirky and likeable and the stories are interesting and not predictable or gratuitous. My library has them on audio so I can listen while working on fixing stuff around the house.
I like many of the books or series previously mentioned as well.
Amazon.com: Dana Stabenow: Books, Biography, Blog, Audiobooks, Kindle

Also like Linda Castillo's thrillers in the Kate Burkholder series. Real page turners!

The Narina movies sucked and deviate way too much from the books IMPO.

When we say Narnia series, are we talking the Lion the With and the Wardrobe? I read those and they were great, haven't seen the movies though....

If your into autobiographies Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt is AMAZING. Easily my favorite book of all time. I loved it so much when I finished reading it I started all over again. Then there is a second one 'Tis. Ugh... Simply amazing!
