Ten on Tuesday

I have been asked recently where I find these topics each week. Carole is nice enough to provide us with the topics each week. She has a button on her blog where you can subscribe to her email notification and you wll receive an email with the topic a few days in advance.

The topic for this week is 10 Favorite Mystery Books. Carole states this can be a single book, author or series. This one will be easy peasy for me because I love mysteries and it is my favorite book genre.

1) Defending Jacob by William Landay – I just finished this book and it was very good. It is the story of an assistant district attorney in a well to do Massachusetts county whose life is turned upside down when his 14 year old son is accused of murdering a classmate.
2) The Pennsylvania Dutch series by Tamar Myers – this series revolves around Magdalena Yoder, a Mennonite innkeeper in Pennsylvania, and the craziness that surrounds her.
3) The Savannah Reid series by G.A. McKevett – the life and times of a food loving voluptuous PI in southern California.
 4) The Knitting Mystery Series by Maggie Sefton – the story of Kelly Flynn, CPA, and her group of knitting friends from the House of Lambspun in Colorado.
5) The Seaside Knitters Series by Sally Goldenbaum – the mysteries that suround yarn store owner Izzy Chambers and her group of knitting buds.
6) The Torie O’Shea Series by Rett MacPherson – this series follows genealogist and amateur sleuth Torie O’Shea and the goings on in her small Missouri town.
7) Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier – creepiness at its best.
8) The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins – I listened to this one with the Craftlit podcast and I think hearing it read aloud really added to the mood.
9) Dracula by Bram Stroker – another one I listened to through Craftlit. Again hearing it read aloud really added something to it.
10) The Sugar Maple Series by Barbara Bretton – the story of witch and yarn store owner Chloe Hobbs and the adventures in her small enchanted town of Sugar Maple, Vermont.

Until next time ....

My book club has picked Defending Jacob to read in a couple months. I'm looking forward to it and glad to hear it is a good read!

I didn't know that Barbara Bretton had a whole series! I loved the first novel; now I've got to track down the rest.

Thank you! I'm thinking about doing this, or a version of it somehow in the new year :-)
