Thrilling mysteries

Relax and enjoy a fun and thrilling cozy mystery. Here are a few of my favorites as recommendations.

Séances are for Suckers: An Eleanor Wilde Mystery by Tamara Berry: This is one of my absolute favorite cozy mystery series. They follow self-proclaimed psychic, Eleanor Wilde, as she stumbles upon and solves murder mysteries. If you like this one, there are currently three follow-up books.

Secondhand Spirits: A Witchcraft Mystery by Juliet Blackwell: Blackwell is another favorite of mine when it comes to supernatural cozies. Lily is a witch who owns a second-hand shop in San Francisco and also has a bad habit of falling into supernatural murder mysteries and having to solve them with her goblin/pig familiar.

Death Overdue: A Haunted Library Mystery by Allison Brook: Carrie is thinking of moving from her cozy town, that is until she is offered the job as head of programs and events at her public library. But what’s a librarian to do when her guest speaker dies mid-presentation? Solve his murder, apparently.

Brewed Awakening: A Coffeehouse Mystery by Cleo Coyle: Clare Cosi wakes up on a park bench with no memory of the last ten years, no idea that she has been missing, and no recollection of the murder mystery that she has to solve. Can coffee help her figure out what she needs to remember?
