All of Laura Griffin’s Books in Order

After all, thrills are the best aphrodisiac. 

laura griffin book covers

Laura Griffin is the award-winning author of over 30 novellas, and is best known for being “the perfect mix of suspense and romance.” She’s had the ideal career for it too: starting off on the student newspaper at Vanderbilt, she eventually graduated and covered news in Chicago, Southeast Asia, and her homestate of Texas. 

She says that “the reporter bug never really left [her] and [she] often gets ideas for new stories by skimming news articles.” Interviews, research, and field trips to places like crime labs and law enforcement agencies helps her bring her ideas to life. 

Her newest release is Liar’s Point, the fifth book in the Texas Murder Files series, but she has a whole career of books to get through before you dive into that one. 

For an exhaustive list of all of Laura Griffin’s books in chronological order, read on!
