With Christmas upcoming I want to get my mom a new book series. She likes to read, has a Kindle but prefers books. She isn't as mobile as she used to be so doesn't get out to book stores as much as she used to. She likes the Stephanie Plum series, has read James Patterson, the Harry Potter series, likes Tess Gerritson, Mary Higgins Clark, Michael Connelly and many more. She does not like racy books, nothing fantasy or paranormal and nothing set years ago/no historical fiction though she does like the Civil War, but has read a series on that already. Ideally I'd like a series of books with one main character through out, but I'd consider a really good stand alone book too.
