I co-write this series with my husband, Cole. Our mission for these books is to bring the Bible to life for readers. Our characters travel back in time and experience the bible stories firsthand.
Chip and Caroline are 8-year old twins from Chicago. They arrive on Palmetto Island to spend the summer with their grandparents while their parents are on a mission trip. Grandfather is a minister of a church on the island, and he and Grandma live next door. The first morning, Chip and Caroline head out to play on the church playground, and meet Billy, the almost 11-year old boy who lives next door.
Billy takes them up to the old bell tower so they can see the whole island. The bell no longer works, he tells them, but one of them rings it and……well, you need to read Mystery in Bethlehem to find out.
You don’t have to read them in order as each story is self-contained, but there are references to the previous adventure at the beginning of each book and an overarching story arc for Billy. I would recommend reading them in order.
#1 Mystery in Bethlehem – the story of the night Jesus was born
#2 Battle in the Valley – the story of David and Goliath
#3 Journey to the Ark – the story of Noah’s Ark
#4 Miracle by the Sea – the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000
Mystery in Bethlehem was honored at the 2020 Reader’s Favorite International Book Awards this year.
Our fifth book, Den of Danger, is currently being written and will be out soon. Our kids travel back in time to the story of Daniel. It’s going to be awesome!
