Best of 2022

Best of 2022 – Top 12 Series

If you’re a regular follower, you know by now I LOVE series reading! I again participated in many series group reads on Goodreads. It’s been another wonderful year for my series reading as so many were absolute wins. Here’s my list of those I started, continued or finished in 2022 (in no particular order).

 Tracy Crosswhite by Robert Dugoni 

I started this series in January, reading a book a month until I (unfortunately) caught up. I loved every story, including the two prequels, which shouldn’t be skipped. This serieswill always rank as a top favorite until it ends.


Lucy Kincaid  by Allison Brennan

I started this series over two years ago, including the connected series, as part of a Goodreads group read. We caught up this year and I dearly miss my monthly connection to these characters. All are so well written.


The Ravenels  by Lisa Kleypas

My first modern historical romance (I went on a two decade hiatus) was by Kleypas and she’s got the magic touch with these stories. Another Goodreads group read, it was a unanimous hit. Too bad there were only seven.


Colorado High Country by Pamela Clare

Seriously, ignore the cover because Clare is one of the best contemporary romance writers and this series is fantastic. Set in the Colorado mountains, the setting is an important element of every story and she’s done her research. Brought me to my knees.

Bishop Security  by Debbie Baldwin 

This Indie author joined one of my highly active Goodreads groups and convinced a few of us to try her first book. Well, we are hopelessly hooked and she can’t write the next books fast enough for us. Trust me, this is a diamond in the rough.



Finlay Donovan by Elle Cosimano

I’m forever grateful to my friend Tessa for her enthusiasm over this series. It was infectious enough to have me start and now I can’t wait to continue the rest.


Black Dagger Brotherhood by J. R. Ward

This series is my guilty pleasure. After sixteen books, Ward writes a sequel I didn’t know I really, really wanted. I’ll never tire of this vampire world.



Rizzoli & Isles  by Tess Gerritsen 

Out of the blue! It’s been on hiatus for five years and suddenly a new book. It was worth the wait but left me yearning for more again.


It Ends With Us  by Colleen Hoover

I’m loving this new trend of standalones suddenly becoming a series with a surprise sequel. The first book was amazing and I was comfortable with how it ended. But, this was a very, very welcome addition.



Wyndham Beach by Mariah Stewart 

What a breath of fresh air! Multigenerational stories with mature characters at the forefront. I binged through with hopes that there’s at least one more coming.


Getaway Collection by Various Authors

I love short stories and if you’re also a fan, you should definitely give this collection a try. I enjoyed all but one and that story only failed me because I didn’t get it. In any event, it’s a smart assembly of talented authors.


DI Kim Stone by Angela Marsons

I caught up last year and could barely wait for this new release. It didn’t disappoint, over exceeding my extremely high expectations. Word on the street is the author has a new contract with the publisher so the end is not in sight…thankfully!

What were some of your favorite series in 2022?

  1. The Ravenels series has been one of my favourite finds of last year, I just have to catch up on the Wallflowers now!


  2. I’m terrible about keeping up with series, but I loved the Finlay Donovan books and Colleen Hoover’s sequel. I haven’t read it in ages but I also really enjoyed the R&I books years ago so that’s exciting to hear there’s a new book after all this time.

  3. I am also a big fan of most of these, Jo. Thanks for the reminder of the Rizzoli and Isles book. I forgot about it, so will be off to the library to see if they have it. I loved the Erika Foster series by Robert Bryndza that I caught up on this year.
