This is the sixth annual reopening of Mysteries ( and thrillers) set at Christmas, any type and any setting. I actually started this discussion in late winter of 2008 and then resurrected it in late 2009, 2010,. Your reason for enjoying any mystery is special.
You will see that this thread began as a recommendations thread but I am no longer happy with that .Let's make it more of a discussion.
This discussion is for all mysteries and thrillers that are set during the holidays. It is not limited to those books with a "Christmas" theme
I for example read a mystery by Ake Edwardson called SUN AND SHadow, which is a dark thriller/police procedural and will not give you warm and comforting feelings. I am interested in diverse types of books that share a time of year. I think that a good list should have recommendations for all types of mystery reader interest. I post about this book later.
I do not use a kindle so if you do please help by giving feedback about those Kindle only books so we can cater to everybody
Please feel free to post about a book even though it has already been mentioned. I love to hear from you about it. List your favorite five if you'd like.
By Amazon policy all self promotional posts will be reported as abuse and Amazon will delete them.
Any of you authors who would like to post as readers are welcome to provide a link to your book information
I will admit that the baskets with Christmas mysteries that appear only between the third week of November and the second week of January are a big part of my Family Christmas tradition.
