March is a great month for mysteries. It is still cold enough to want to stay indoors and snuggle up with a good “cozy” mystery. Mysteries intrigue the reader as they become more and more engrossed in the story and try to solve the “whodunit” which is what makes reading mysteries so enjoyable.
My first experience with mysteries was the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew and at an early age I was hooked. I love a good mystery and pride myself on being able to solve them way before the final chapter. There are several different types of mysteries such as the caper, the hard boiled, police procedurals, legal/medical, private eye, historical and the sleuths. If you want to read a mystery series checkout Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum mysteries, James Lee Burke’s Dave Robicheaux mysteries or Joanne Fluke’s Hannah Swenson mysteries which also contains recipes since she is a bakery-owning amateur. Whether you like your mysteries on the light side or hard boiled you will find excitement awaits you as you try to solve the crimes!
