Mystery For Christmas

How could I have a month of Christmas novels on a blog called Mystery Writer on a Mission and not mention Christmas themed mysteries? I know, what were we thinking?

Anyway, the following is a quick list by some of mystery’s greatest writers. If you’d like a little gun powder with you Christmas pudding, or a touch of larceny alongside your mistletoe, these picks might just be your cup of peppermint hot cocoa.



Mary and Carol Higgins Clark
Deck the Halls
The Christmas Thief
Dashing Through the Snow
The Santa Cruise
All Through the Night
Silent Night

Agatha Christie
Hercule Poirot’s Christmas (The movie version staring David Suchet is great too.)
A Christmas Tragedy
The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding

Sherlock Holmes
The Blue Carbuncle (The movie version staring Jeremy Brett comes recommend.)

There is also the “Food Mystery” category in which Joanna Fluke has sort of become a maven of combining baked goods and intrigue during the Holiday Season. Honestly, I haven’t read much of the books, but I love the recipes in them! ;)

So there you go, if you need your mystery fix this Christmas you can now have your fruitcake and eat it too.

P.S. If you get a chance, check out my new Christmas novel, The Father Christmas Confessions: A Christmas Comedy. Just .99 cents on Amazon. Click here.
