It has been said that the four most important aspects of a book are: story, character, setting and language ; these are the “doorways” that you enter a book by. What makes a book appealing to you and what do you look for in similar books? Is it the genre? Is it the the pacing or rate at which the story is told? For example, if you like James Patterson’s action-packed, fast paced mysteries/thrillers, here are some other authors that you might enjoy : Harlan Coben, Jeffery Deaver, Lisa Gardner, Ridley Pearson, Kathy Reichs and Stuart Woods.
