Got any Nook e-book suggestions?

I'll be heading to San Antonio next month (my first time to Texas - yippee!) and would love to have some suggestions for books to download on my Nook to take with me. 

Here are the type of books I like to read:

Romantic time travel (Jude Deveraux - Knight in Shining Armor, Legend)

Medical mysteries (similar to Robin Cook)

Espionage (especially if there's a bit of romance thrown in)

I loved all of the "Girl" books - The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest (and I'd love it if someone knew of books similar to them)

If you've read a book you think is fantastic, please tell me about it.  I'm not locked into the categories I've listed, they're just the ones I thought of off the top of my head.  I'd love to broaden my reading horizons, and welcome anything you send my way.

Please suggest...and if they're free, that's even better. I come!!!  Well, here I come in another four weeks.

I know, I know, they are for young readers, but I find the Harry Potter books super. If you haven't read any, start with the first one. It's fun!

I just read "The Twenties Girl" by Sophie Kinsella & I really enjoyed it. It has a bit of romance & sort of time travel - sort of....
I read the hardback that someone brought in to work, so I don't know about the Nook option.
I like all of the Dick Francis books. They're mysteries, all having something to do with horse racing, but racing isn't necessarily the focus of the story.
Darn! I recently read a good espionage-type book, but my brain is fuzzy still from the time change. sigh.
Have a great trip!

There are some older books you may like, look for anything by Alistair MacLean - Ice Station Zebra, Bear Island, Puppet on a Chain and many more.

I'd start with Ice Station Zebra - one of my favorites.

Second the Dick Francis books - while many center around horse racing, many delve into other areas. His wife did the research for him - they are well written and great reads.
