My husband reads Dean Koontz (big fan) and tolerates Stephen King.

I guess James Patterson is more John Grisham than Stephen King, but his books are generally easy to get through. His stories typically reel me in quickly, and I'm almost always satisfied at the end of the story. His genre is crime thriller/mystery. His books with Detective Alex Cross are very good. I would suggest getting a list of his books in order, because they often refer back to each other.

Anyway, that was the first name that popped into my head after reading your post. :)

If your husband would be more interested in Christian Suspense Fiction, I have read a little bit of each of the following authors: Frank Peretti, Ted Dekker, and Terri Blackstock. I would highly recommend Frank Peretti's suspense novels. I haven't read enough of Ted Dekker or Terri Blackstock to be able to give an accurate review.

I hope that helps!

Hmm I don't think I've ever read any of James Patterson so I might have to check them out for me and coax him into one.


He's not into christian books.

LOL! Oh my goodness! You are hereby banned from saying something as funny as "I would have been killed at school with how nerdy I was" to a pregnant woman. I literally almost peed my pants. Thanks for that!

Here's a link to James Patterson's Alex Cross Series page:

The Maximum Ride series was a more on the sci-fi side of the spectrum, rather than crime fiction:

I bet you'll like them. I could be wrong, but I haven't really met anyone who absolutely hated James Patterson. :)

I suggest Robert McCammon. Especially Boys Life and Mine. They're edge of your seat suspense without being too gory. They deal more with the evil inside people than monsters like vampires and werewolves.

Oh I'd second that one! The Harry Potter series is awesome. I read the last one in 8 hours, I sat on the couch opened it and didn't move til I was done.


I also loved the Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R.R. Martin.


and Michael Crichton (spelling?) is good too. I've read Timeline 4 times.
