I recommend Alton Gansky's Perry Sachs series.  Not all are listed on PBS as Christian Fiction - but they are!!  I've read Beneath the Ice and   A Treasure Deep.  Both were very good.  I'm going to order  Submerged (Perry Sachs) as soon as I get Mt TBR read down a bit.  :)

Good luck!

I just finished Your Chariot Awaits by Lorena McCourtney, which is a mystery/romance. It wasn't a thriller like Dee Henderson's books are, but more of a light "cozy" mystery. Good book.

If you like the show NCIS, you might enjoy Mel Odom's books.  He has a series about NCIS.  Travis Thrasher is another good author.

Try Ginny Aiken. Her books are quick reads, almost what you would call a cozy. Hannah Alexander is also good, like cozies.T. davis Bunn writes many, many mysteries. Mindy Starnes Clark also has a whole list of ones you might like. Hers are also quick reads. Brandilyn  Collins has several series going, but I certainly wouldn't call hers cozies, at least not in my opinion. Sometimes they border on the wierd!  Tim Downs, Linda Hall, Susan Meissner,  Gilbert Morris (his "cat" series are mysteries), Bill Myers - some are mysteries, some not -  , Patricia Rushford, Patricia Sprinkle - has 3 series -,  and some by Lynn Bullock are romantic mysteries. I'm certain I have forgotten some. Theses are authors I've read and enjoyed in the Christian fiction/mystery genre. I second the books by Lorena McCourtney. Some of her mysteries, especially the series about the senior citizens, are hoots!   Hope you find some you enjoy.   Blessings    M'ann

Piercing the Darkness & This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti - they've been around for a while but are excellent books!
