7 Awesome Mystery Book Series with Recurring Characters ...


There is nothing more relaxing than reading, and I especially enjoy mystery book series with recurring characters.

I think you grow to appreciate the characters and their jobs, their personal issues and quirks.2

Alex Cross has such a love of his family.

Lucas Davenport sounds super sexy with his scarred face.

And while not necessarily a mystery series, there is intrigue with Louis and Lestat.

Take a look at my own personal list of favorite mystery book series (in no particular order) with recurring characters.

Share your favorites, too!

1. Patricia Cornwell and Kay Scarpetta

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

Who doesn’t like Kay Scarpetta, the medical examiner/lawyer and everything else because she’s so smart?

She’s independent, successful, cares deeply for her friends and family, and she can solve a mystery!

Here are the Scarpetta novels in order of publication.

Enjoy reading this mystery book series!

2. James Patterson and Alex Cross

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

I really appreciate the characters in this series and their history.

Of course, several of these books have been made into movies with a couple of different actors playing Alex.

I personally never think a movie is as good as the book;

and is the main character ever portrayed by someone like you had in your head?

3. Jonathan Kellerman and Alex Delaware

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

Alex Delaware is a forensic psychologist with a background as a child psychologist.2

He partners with Milo Sturgis, a lieutenant with the LAPD, to help Milo with crime solving and criminal profiling.

The relationship between these friends is one thing that draws you into these novels.

Milo is gay and has dealt with the issues that come along with being gay on the police force.

Alex’s relationship with Robin is sweet and sexy.

These books are smart and there’s a bit of sarcastic humor between the characters that I like.
