I have had the pleasure of reading every book that Author Colleen Coble has ever published. The way she crafts her books is nothing short of amazing, she has a way of building landscapes that you can’t help but feel like you are right there in the town she places you.
Her best friend and critique partner Denise Hunter is another one of my favorite authors but in an entirely different genre, however, it still amazes me how seemingly two polar opposite type genre writers (at least nowadays since Colleen Coble doesn’t write primarily romance anymore) can be such great friends. I found it to be very encouraging and uplifting to watch. Colleen Coble has written over seventy-five books in different genres ranging from more recent suspense/thriller books to historical fiction, westerns, and contemporary fiction.
When putting this list together it was interesting to see how many cover changes and title changes her books have had over the years. I tried to let you know when titles had been changed in this list but I am only human and I could have missed some, if you know of a different title change let me know and I will update the list. I’ve also linked an editable canva template list of all her books that you can print off for your record keeping 🙂

This first group is of her older books, most are only available digitally or in “collections” now. I did link them out to Amazon where I could find them, however, since most aren’t in print anymore I’d recommend checking out local used bookstores as the prices on Amazon for some of these are on the high side.

My first memory of reading Colleen Coble’s stories is of her romantic-suspense series Aloha Reef. It is what started my love of all things suspense, and true crime. Her new books are auto-buys for me and I always look forward to seeing where she will take us next. I even had the pleasure of meeting her at an ACFW conference where she talked about her process of writing and where she started with new book ideas. It was fascinating, and only cemented my love of her books.
She was also very upbeat and humorous, especially when she and Denise Hunter started bantering back and forth. Collen Coble took the time to talk to each participant in her workshop and answer their questions, she made us all feel like we were valued and we left having the feeling of knowing her a bit better.
