Top 5 Slightly Spooky Cozy Mysteries
Agatha Christie is considered the Queen of Mystery and her Hercule Poirot series is a favorite for road trips. Her novel, Hallowe’en Party will have you sleuthing right along with Poirot.
Lillian Jackson Braun was the author of the beloved Cat Who series featuring two inquisitive and intuitive cats who aided their owner in solving crimes in upstate Michigan. The Cat Who Talked to Ghosts is a must read for fans of this series.
Janet Evanovich is the popular and prolific creator of the Stephanie Plum series. Her Between The Numbers series features quirkier characters than normal who have a spooky side as well. Plum Spooky is her Halloween offering.
Every book in Carolyn Haines’ Sarah Booth Delaney series features a ghostly sidekick who gives advice from the beyond to help solve the case. Hallowed Bones is a good place to start in this long-running series.
