I’ve always been a reader. I remember reading classic series like the Little House on the Prairie books and Anne of Green Gables when I was young.
Through most of my teens and twenties, I read mainly fiction. Once I became a mom, I got into parenting books and other non-fiction.
My tastes have definitely changed over the years. I used to read lots of historical fiction, then moved on to mysteries. Legal-themed mysteries have been a more recent choice, but I never developed a taste for sci-fi or fantasy. These days I try to keep a balance between fiction and non-fiction – and memoirs are a current favorite.
Today I’m sharing with you ten of my favorite Christian fiction series. It’s mostly a mix of mysteries and contemporary stories. Some of these I first read many years ago – and now I’m inspired to go back and re-read them!
Where one link wasn’t available for the entire series, I’ve shared a link to the first book.

1. Lost Castle series by Kristy Cambron. Kristy Cambron is one of my favorite authors. I’ve read all of her books. All three books in this series are split-time romances (basically two cohesive plot lines, one set in the past and one in the present) and revolve around castles. But they’re definitely not all about royalty, like you might think.
2. Serena Jones Mysteries by Sandra Orchard. How I wish there were more than three books in this series! I read them years ago and have re-read them at least once. Our older daughter has enjoyed reading these, too. Also, the titles of the books are very clever.
3. The O’Malley Series by Dee Henderson. I read this series quite a while ago. It’s another set that my older daughter and I both enjoyed. They’re called “romantic suspense novels” and follow different members of the O’Malley family, all of whom have interesting careers.
4. The Hidden Springs Mysteries by A.H. Gabhart. This three-book series is set in a small town with memorable characters and just enough suspense to keep readers interested.
5. Angel Island Books by Thomas Kinkade with Katherine Spencer. Now we get to a series that’s just sweet stories without a lot of mystery. Another one that I’d definitely want to read more of!
6. The Bradford Sisters by Becky Wade. Each of these three books chronicles what’s happening with one of three sisters. Just nice, contemporary romances!
7. Supper Club Series by Carla Laureano. These are also modern romances. All three of the books deal with food – a supper club, a cafe, and a coffee shop.
8. The MacDonald Family Trilogy by Carla Laureano. Set in Scotland and London, these three books document the lives of different members of the MacDonald family.
9. The Original Baxter Family Series by Karen Kingsbury. There are a lot of Baxter Family books. Somehow I started with the sixth book, Fame, and read through Sunset, which is book 14. I don’t think I ever went back and read the first five books. I did read a couple of the later ones, but the original group I read was the best.
10. The Wedding Collection by Rachel Hauck. Rachel Hauck has written a number of books. I’ve read several of them, but especially enjoyed this series.
Let me know if you’ve enjoyed any of these series or drop a note in the comments if you have a series to recommend!
