I read these when I was right out of high school which would have been 2003.  I would like to read them again but our library no longer has them if anyone has them and would like to do a deal on them please pm me.

Storm at Daybreak (Daybreak Mysteries, No 1) (Paperback)

The Captive Voice (Daybreak Mysteries, No 2) (Paperback)

The Tangled Web (Daybreak Mysteries/B. J. Hoff, 3) (Paperback)

Vow of Silence (Daybreak Mysteries/ B. J. Hoff, 4) (Paperback)

Dark River Legacy (Daybreak Mysteries/B. J. Hoff, 5) (Paperback)

Winds of Graystone Manor (The St. Clare Trilogy) (Paperback)


Also taking into consideration those books and the fact that I like Terry Blackstocks Cape refuge series is there anyone who could recommend a new series for me to read that is similar.  I like the Christian mysteries with some a minor love story.  I loved both the Daybreak Mysteries and the Cape refuge series and I would like to find a new author.  I'm not a big fan of Terry's other series or B.J.'s other series.

You might try Dee Henderson and Colleen Coble.  I think that they both write romantic suspense.  Personally I haven't read them but I know that they are popular.

I second that comment.

You might like the Deadly Decor series by Ginny Aiken.  I've read the first two books and I thought they were pretty good, especially the first one.  They are a little slow to start off with but pretty enjoyable.  I like that the author had her main character ask some serious questions about God without holding back.  The first two book didn't have much in the way of romance but I think there may be more of that in the third book.

Dee Henderson is a great author but she seems to have disappeared so once you read the ones she has already written there may not be anymore. Her O'Malley series is great. Also try Irene Hannon's Heroes of Quantico series. I also recommend the Rock Harbor series by Colleen Coble.

Thanks All!  I'm looking into the Colleen Coble I've already read her Alaska Twilight book but it was stand alone.  I'm looking at the Aloha series though not I'll also try the rock harbor too Thanks!

You may look into Brandilyn Collins, as well.  I've only started reading more of her books in the past few months, and they're more suspense with no romance (so far, in the books I've read).  She's a great author.

Linda Hall - 'Dark Water' and 'Black Ice'

Hannah Alexander's Hideaway series

Lorena McCourtney's Ivy Malone series (good mysteries, but not a lot of romance)

As Tina suggested Lorena McCoutney.  I read several year ago, and really enjoyed the Ivy Malone series, (more cozy type mystery). I just recently read another series by her. Can't remember the name of series but 2 or the 3 books were Whirlpool and Riptide.  They seemed more along the lines of T. Blackstock and BJ Hoff Daybreak series.
