Based on this answer being dependent on knowledge of spoilers, you are hereby warned: Spoiler Warning ...

So the three official books that readily connect are: Lost Mine of Phandelver (D&D Starter Set) (level 1 to 4) Hoard of the Dragon Queen / Rise of Tiamat (level 1 to 15) Princes of the Apocalypse (level 1/3 to 15) LMoP and PotA happen literally next door to each other.
