CleanCaptivatingFiction™ Booklist

The CleanCaptivatingFiction™ Booklist contains my suggestions for other quality (often suspense) fiction that is not only entertaining, but clean. A few may still have mature or dark themes, disturbing crimes, violence or controversial issues, but the language and content is not explicit.

Austin Boyd 

A variety of books including the faith-based science Mars Hill Classified Series (Someone’s taking stunning new photos of the surface of Mars. But who—or what? In The Evidence, terrorists, aliens, prophets, and a disorganized U.S. government swirl together to form a gripping backdrop to one man’s struggle to balance his obligations to country, family, and God). Also H2O the novel, and Nobody's Child.


Luana Ehrlich

The Titus Ray Thrillers. I can't recommend these thrillers enough-excellent writing, believable, fast-paced and realistic. One Night in Tehran, Two Days in Caracas and Three Weeks in Washington coming in August 2016.

James Scott Bell 

Excellent suspense: The Try Series, Final Witness, No Legal Grounds, The Last Plea Bargain,  Don't Leave Me, and more.

Excellent romantic suspense: Bait is the first novel I've read by Phillips. It has a sequel, Target, I've not read yet, and several other books. She is a writer of "Inspirational Romantic Suspense."

Alcorn has a number of fiction books that fall into multiple genres. They are inspirational, engaging, suspenseful and moving. Checkout Deadline, Deception, Dominion and Safely Home. For more allegorical work, see Edge of Eternity. His non-fiction work is eye-opening, and I highly recommend Heaven

Rivers' books take you to the deep places of the heart using drama, danger, and love. Start with Reedeming Love and The Voice in the Wind series. .

Graham's crime/spiritual thriller, Beyond Justice, contains some hard, gut-wrenching material in regard to the crime at issue, but the writing is powerful and thought provoking. Checkout his other books as well.


I can't let you go without suggesting a few non-fiction books that have been informative and inspirational in my life. 

Heaven by Randy Alcorn

The Insanity of God by Nip Ripken with Gregg Lewis

Citizen by Rob Peabody

Kisses from Katie by Katie J. Davis and Beth Clark
