#A to Z Blogging I Just Like Other Kinds of Mysteries

Combination Today - I Just Like Other Kinds of Mysteries

* Go to Day 1 - Come back Tuesday, 4/14 for the next post for L

When it comes to mysteries, sometimes you get tired of reading the same old topic or theme. It's like knowing someone will turn up dead every time Jessica Fletcher appears. So, I went looking around and found some mysteries that are a bit different... And no, they don't have to be spooky or horrific all the time. 

Time Travel


In Times Like These: A Time Travel Adventure, (Book 1 of 4) Nathan Van Coops - Benjamin Travers has been electrocuted. What’s worse, he and his friends have woken up in the past. As the friends search for a way home, they realize they’re not alone. There are other time travelers, and some of them are turning up dead.

Leonardo and Gabriel, Tim Tigner - Leonardo was a genius of his time who dabbled in various fields. But his lasting works like The Last Supper, make the viewer ponder one of the greatest mysteries, where and how he got his inspiration. This offers a different, philosophical view and approach to the great painter's works... 

Fairy Tales

If you like your mysteries with a touch of fantasy... and romance...  

Snow White and the Seven Murders, A Romantic Cozy Novella,  Amorette Anderson - Snow White is a business reporter who learns a killer is on the loose. Her snooping pays off when she follows some hot leads - and finds an even hotter prince. (Of course.) 

Senior Sleuths 

From knitters to nursing home residents, this seems to be a growing cozy mystery category.


Seniors Sleuth, (Winston Wong Cozy Book 1), JJ Chow - It's not often you find an ethnic mystery, so this is refreshing. Winston Wong leaves a spiraling career to follow his childhood love of sleuthing and takes on his first case, to confirm the natural death of a man in his nineties and untangle the lies in a nursing environment with a cast of characters.

The Gray-Haired Knitting Detectives, (Books 1-3), D.E. Haggerty - Ha, fun description. The knitters are too busy solving crimes to actually get any knitting done. 

The Old Farts in Miami, Richard Hill - The title got my attention as did the idea of seniors as sleuths, this time a group of "old Vietnam Veterans" who take on a cartel and kidnapping.
