Anything by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekkar are usually great.  Anyone else have recommendations?

I'm reading the Lancaster County series by Beverly Lewis.  I have devoured this series-read the first two in 3 days!  I started the 3rd and last today.

The Shunning

The Confession

The Reckoning

Very quick reads, great story!  She has written many other books too.

I like Karen Kingsbury.  She usually writes 3 or more books in a series.  She is an excellent character builder; the books are usually very emotional and filled with "every day life" issues.  I especially liked the Redemption series and the Fame series.

Terri Blackstock has a couple excellent series and Dee Henderson's stuff is good.  Karen Kingsbury is always good, but there isn't much of it posted here.  I like Lori Wick as well.  I have 2 of a 4 book series on my shelf by Gayle Roper that was excellent.  It's the Amhearst Series.  The first was Caught in the Middle (available on PBS, but not on my shelf).  Then I have Caught in the Act and Caught in a Bind (books 2 and 3).  Book 4 is Caught Redhanded and it's not on PBS yet, but I will probably order it from Amazon and then post.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

I have books from each of the authors listed except Ted Dekker.  I will have to try his.
