Does anyone read her? I've only read two - Justifiable Means and Private Justice. My students absolutely love her books, but I've heard they're all kind of the same. Is that true? What are your thoughts on her and what do you think are her best books? I'm looking for her least predictable books.

Thanks!

My personal favorite of hers are the Restoration series and the Newpointe series. Her older books are very similiar (most are updates of her romance books) but the newer ones are good romantic suspense. also her Seasons series with Beverly Lahaye is good women's fiction comparable to Karen Kingsbury

I loved her Last Light, True Light, etc series! I have just ordered another book from her here and will post about it when I have read it.

I also loved her Newpointe series and the Restoration series. I have them in our church library and they are enjoyed but a lot of ladies.

The Newpointe 911 and Cape Refuge series have been my favorites so far.

I did get a lot out of the Seasons series she did with Bev LaHaye. I've experienced many of the seasons that those families faced and she really did a good job of making these neighbors become the reader's family.

My favorite is the Cape Refuge series.  I tried to read the Restoration series but only made it halfway through the first book.  I prefer her older series they seem to be better.  I also like Emrald Windows it is one of my favorite books she wrote even though its a stand alone.

I enjoyed the Cape Refuge series, and the first two books in the Restorations series (haven't gotten to the last 2 yet).  About a week ago, I finished her newest book, Predator, and it was awesome!  I can't stop recommending it to anyone that likes suspense....you won't be disappointed!

Good to know! I didn't know she had a new one out. I also just finised the first two in the  Restoration series. I think, so far, it's my favorite series of hers.  Cape Refuge will be next on my list.

One of her newer books Intervention was a good one and I really enjoyed Predator.

I love all of her suspense novels.  Read Predator and couldn't put it down until I finished the last page.  Stayed up late one night reading it.
