What's Your Favorite Kind of Mystery?

 by Debra Sennefelder


 


I'm sure you can relate to this. My TBR list has been growing significantly for the past couple months. As I reviewed it recently while planning a trip to Barnes & Noble, I realized that a majority of the books were set in isolated locations. I love them!

Inquiring minds want to know - what is your favorite mystery? Let me know in the comments.

  1. Great question, Debra! My favorite kind of mystery reads are those set in foreign locales, for example Sujata Massey's mysteries set in India during the British Raj, or Steven Saylor's set in ancient Rome.

  3. I love mysteries! My selections would be in this order: Isolated Mystery, Country House Mystery, Holiday Mystery [particularly at Christmas], Culinary Mystery, Locked Room Mystery [recently enjoyed a cozy with a twist - a new entrepreneur recently returned to her hometown in Deadwood, South Dakota (1st setting that I can recall of a South Dakota location) opening an Escape Room business "Escape from Reality"] Paranormal Mystery [rarely read].

  4. No favorites, really. I enjoy any one of them, as long as they keep me guessing.

  5. I love them all! It's amazing how many varieties of mysteries we can choose from, and how different they all can be. There's no other genre where the author's experience in writing the book and the reader's experience in reading the book are so tightly connected.

  6. I'm an all over the board mystery reader. The key is good characters, dialogue and a plot I can't figure out.
