Terri Blackstock has become one of favorite authors, I loved the CAPE REFUGE series, I am almost done with the NEWPOINTE 911 series and have loved that entire series as well. Does anyone have the RESTORATION series and would you be willing to deal? Blackstock is the only Christian suspense author I have read so far, does anyone have any other recommendations?

Kathy Herman has some good ones out in the Christian suspense category  or Kristin Heitzman or Dee Henderson are good too.

Kristin Heitzmann is a favorite of mine - and I've read and enjoyed all the Dee Henderson series..

If you want more suspense try Craig Parshall or even Ted Dekker.

I just finished Against All Odds by Irene Hannon. It was really good.

Robert Whitlow has some good legal type thrillers that are good, quick reads...

One of them, The List, has been made into a movie and is on DVD, although I haven't seen it.

I recently finished reading The Pawn and The Rook by Steven James, both of which I enjoyed.
Joseph Hilley has several books out that once I started reading, I had a hard time putting down.
Both of these are murder/suspense type books which is what I enjoy reading.

I am currently reading Patricia Rushford, McAlister series.

Have you read the series she did with Beverly LaHaye?  They are a bit different, I think more like Karen Kingsbury's books.

Subject: Book by Terri you might enjoy.

I have a book written by Terri Blackstock that you might be interested in. It's called The Heart Reader and is about a man that can hear a person's innermost needs. It is a wonderful story and it was originally published under Anonymous but has since come out by Terri Blackstock.

Terri Blackstock is one of my fav's!!  I have Evidence of Mercy waiting to be read (Sun Coast series) and the 3 & 4 book of the series.  Don't have #2 though.
