My Bookshelf: Must Read Series

90As the weather cools down, I can think of nothing better than curling up with a book…or three. There’s something special about collecting an entire series and enjoying them back to back. I’m bringing to you a list of some of my favorite Christian Fiction Series. All of these listed below are complete and can be collected today for your enjoyment. The links will take you to their Amazon page. 

Hickory Ridge Romance by Dorothy Love is a delightful series set in the mountains of TN after the Civil War, and it follows three different couples in their struggles to find love and security after the war.
Wings of the Nightingale by Sarah Sundin is a WWII series that follows three women and their flight nurse careers that take them overseas and into danger…and possibly into the arms of love. I must confess, this is a series that I still need to finish. I have high hopes of curling up with the rest of the series later this winter.
*Book 1 of this series is currently free for your kindle.
Prairie Promises by Kelly Eileen Hake is one of the funniest series I’ve ever read. Each book centers on a new woman and the rocky relationship with the man in her life. Trust me, you’ll want to add this one to your reading list.
Kincaid Brides by Mary Connealy is another fun series full of charming heroes and tons of laughs. The Kincaid Brides is centered around three brothers, a tragic cave accident, and the three beautiful women that find themselves married to this bunch.
Texas Grooms Series by Winnie Griggs is another light-hearted, split-your-sides-funny series. But don’t take my word for it. Grab this 6 books series and settle in for a great time. You can thank me later! 😉
Heroines Behind the Lines by Jocelyn Green is a Civil War page turner! Jocelyn has a way with historic details that will take your breath away.
Timber Ridge Reflection by Tamera Alexander follows three couples in the Colorado Territory. The women struggle to find respect and security in a man’s world while the men struggle to find themselves after the Civil War.
Mercy Falls Collection by Colleen Coble follows three couples in their own tale of mystery and suspense set around a California lighthouse.
Refiner’s Fire by Lynn Austin has long since been my favorite Civil War Series. It’s unique in the way it covers the war from three different women whose lives intersect in ways even they wouldn’t have imagined. Each book focuses on a different view point: North, South, and Slave.
*Book 1 is currently free for your kindle
Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis is a beloved classic for a reason. Every Christian ought to take the time to read this wonderful series. C.S. Lewis has a way of bringing a variety of Christian aspects into his world of fantasy. While written for children, it’s a delightful read for the adult since you have more of a mind to pick up the lessons the author intended to pass along.
Love Comes Softly by Janette Oke is another beloved classic and with every reason to be. It’s another must read for the Christian fiction fan. This eight book series follows one family that began with an unhappy marriage of convenience.
Postcards from Pullman by Judith Miller follows one spunky woman while she works for the Pullman company. What looks like a dream job is anything but when Olivia finds herself surrounded by lies, secrets, a union strike, and two persistent suitors.
A Secret Refuge by Lauraine Snelling follows two sisters as they go in separate directions seeking peace and security in the midst of the Civil War.
*Book 1 is currently free for your kindle
Little Hickman Creek by Sharlene MacLaren follows four different women in the ever-challenging quest for love. Set in Kentucky, this historical fiction series will capture her heart and keep you properly entertained.
The Broadmoor Legacy by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller follow three cousins and the men that love them. This family proves that great wealth creates problems instead of solving them.
*Book 1 is currently free for your kindle
Patchwork Circle Series by Judith Pella are two books packed with romance, love triangles, quilting bees, and old feuds.

  1. From a Distance, first in the Timber Ridge Reflections series is one of my all-time favorites and made me a big fan of Tamera Alexander’s books. I’ve read several of these: Postcards from Pullman, Wings of the Nightingale, and Kincaid Brides. One of these days, I’ll get to Jocelyn Green’s books. Great list, Anita!

  3. Almost all the ones you I have I have read and I loved them. But I wonder have you read “A River Too Deep” & “Light Bird’s Song” by Sydney Betts. They are so good and I’m making that a suggestion!
