  5. Anthony Trollope - Barchester Towers

  6. Dorothy L Sayers - Gaudy Night

  7. John Hadfield - Love on a Branch Line

  8. Sharon Krum - The Thing About Jane Spring

  9. Veronica Heley - Murder in the Park

  10. Donna Leon - The Girl of his Dreams

Yes, I'm working on a similar list - quite a few authors in common, but mostly different titles.
