The Alphabet in Crime Fiction: B, author Terri Blackstock

Another week, another perusal of the 2004-present spreadsheet I keep of books read.  Since the author thing was pretty easy last week, I thought I would do that again this week.  So who is the author?

Terri Blackstock

I started reading Terri Blackstock with her Cape Refuge series.  It's four books that focus on a small town and crimes and mysteries and on it's police chief, Chief Cade and Blair and Morgan Owens.  There are romance threads that run through the books, but what stood out to me the most was the central plot line of each book being a crime that needed to be solved.  They were great books to me and I will hunt down more of her books when I get a chance (she has several more series and most are mystery).  She is a Christian writer and though there are Christian themes in her books, they are well done and not just thrown in there for fun, they become central to the story.

The Cape Refuge Series:

 Cape Refuge (Cape Refuge, No. 1)Southern Storm (Cape Refuge, No. 2)
River's Edge (Cape Refuge, No. 3)Breaker's Reef (Cape Refuge, No. 4) 

  1. Cape Refuge
  2. Southern Storm
  3. River's Edge
  4. Breaker's Reef
A little bit about Terri Blackstock (from Fantastic Fiction):
