I'm a mystery author. Am I allowed to contribute here? I think my book, "Turn Left at September" might hold your interest.

Donna Andrews has two series going that are fun.
Iris Johansen is quite excellent, but more serious. Also like Diane Mott Davidson, whose main character is a caterer. Includes lots of cool recipes.
Also, check out StopYoureKillingMe.com. You can look up authors or characters. Very cool.

Have you tried Sue Grafton, the Alphabet series? They are very similar to Janet Evanovich.

Try Mignon Ballard's angel mysteries, or the Aunt Dimity series by Nancy Atherton. Both are fun and easy reads with a little "otherworldly" flavor.

Hi Kimberly,

Look at the comments for John Rhodes' Who Killed Callaway? and see if that is a new author you'd like to try. I am not a fan of mystery, but his novel was very impressive. By reading the customer reviews, I see I wasn't the only one. Full disclosure, I am his publicist, but I truly do believe he's worth checking out. (It's my reputation that's on the line, too, if I didn't steer you right.)

Recently released, "The Manuscript...a motive for murder?" Author: Joanne Connors-Wade. She has written two previous books (true crime) "No Tomorrows" is about the abduction/murder of six children. "A Thread of Evidence" is an account of a double homicide which occurred in 1954. Both are riveting and real page turners. "The Manuscript" is a fictional murder mystery, truly a 'who done it' that grips the reader and holds him captive to the very end. Worth taking a look at this one! www.jconnorswade

I am the Facilitator of a Mystery Book Club. I read several books each week and in 2007 one of the best books I read was THE BLADE ITSELF by Marcus Sakey. Also, you could try IN THE WOODS by Tana French. She is Irish, I think, and the book is the type you won't soon forget. If you like serial killer books, one of the best of the year was HEARTSICK by Chelsea Cain. And, if you would like to read a very good author, you might try Greg Iles. He has written several books and they are all great.

Kimberly,
I Think that if you go to The Rue Morgue Vintage Mysteries you will find some of the zaniest mysteries every. They reprint Vintage Mysteries and most of the authors will not be ones that you have heard of. For example the Little sisters who lived and wrote in New Jersey. You can read about them on Amazon. I am having a wonderful time

Try Amanda Cross's Kate Fansler mysteries; Lilian Jackson Braun's "Cat Who..." mysteries. These are all very light and whimsical stories

Thanks for the post - I have received some great suggestions here!

Some of my favorites are Brian Freeman's soon to be 3 books (2 out now) and I just started reading the PJ Tracy series starting with Monkeewrench. This was a great read! I have links to their sites on my blog which is www.theorracle.blogspot.com

Happy reading!
Lyle

If it's lighthearted mysteries you're looking for, my vote is for MC Beaton's Agatha Raisin series. It's oftentimes a laugh-out-loud read. Try to read them in order, as there is an continuing storyline throughout the mysteries.

I agree that JA Jance's JP Beaumont series is wonderful (again, try to read them in order), but it is not lighthearted and humorous.

It's always fun to try new authors. Let us know if you find some you really do enjoy, maybe they'll be new to us, too! Happy reading!

You might enjoy James Patterson's "women's Murder Club" series. There is a new tv series based loosely on these books but, I think the books are better.

Pastor Gary says:
Try the author Jill McGown. She has a series of English mysteries. Unfortubately she died about a year ago leaving the series unfinished, but the 10 or so books she wrote were very good.
