A Very Cozy Halloween

One of the aspects I love about cozy series is the opportunity they give readers to go through the seasons with the characters. Take a tour of your library’s mystery section and you will find books filled with murder and mayhem during Valentine’s week, Saint Patrick’s Day parties, July Fourth fireworks, Thanksgiving feasts, and Christmas festivities. Halloween, of course, lends itself well to stories with a sinister character or two.

Here are a few cozy reads that will get you in the Halloween spirit, or at least help you fall into the autumnal state of mind (pun intended).

A Roux of Revenge from Connie Archer’s Soup Lover’s Mystery series.

Halloween Hijinks, A Zoe Donovan Mystery by Kathi Daley.

A Hannah Swensen Mystery from Joanne Fluke, Fudge Cupcake Murder.

Here are two from Mary Daheim’s Bed-and-Breakfast series (one of my favorite authors and series): Silver Scream and  the Oktoberfest-themed The Wurst is Yet to Come.

Leslie Meier’s long-running Lucy Stone series offers three Halloween installments: Trick or Treat Murder, Wicked Witch Murder,  and Candy Corn Murder.

Livia J. Washburn offers up Murder by the Slice and Trick or Deadly Treat in her Fresh Baked series.

There’s also my Murder, by George, which is set in October and includes a wild and wicked costume ball, where a few secrets are revealed.

Have a spooktacular Halloween!
