There are at least 4 distinct series/narrative arcs in there; the "core" series starring Mike Stearns and family (1632, 1633, 1634 Baltic War, 1635 Eastern Front, 1636 Saxon Uprising), the Vatican Arc (1634 Galileo Afair, 1635 The Cannon Law, 1635 Papal Stakes), the Hapsburg Arc, the new russian Arc, with more to come). And then there's the Ring of Fire Anthologies and the Grantville Gazette short story collection as a sidelights exploring the rest of that universe.
Lots of fun and highly recommended for anybody with an interest in alternate history.
Or real history for that matter; counter-factual history provides a nice counterpoint to better appreciate the past.

How about the Kinsey Millhone/Alphabet series by Sue Grafton. Although some people would argue that there is very little character development.

Donald Hamilton's Matt Helm Series. There are 28 books in the series. Do not confuse this series with the movies. They are not alike at all.

My husband is enthralled with Tairen Soul by C.L. Wilson, which is currently at book 5 with the 6th and final installment on it's way. Not sure that's considered "long", but possibly worth while (if you ask my husband).

How about the 29 books of Lilian Jackson Braun's Jim Qwilleran Feline Whodunnit series and Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels - 19 books and counting.
Or the 18 books of Dudley Pope's Ramage series. This is set in the same period as the Hornblower books.
