Happy Friday, everyone! Today I am talking about my favorite mystery series. Most of these books would not be considered thrillers, but true mysteries, where there are crimes and people or groups of people set out to solve them. The other thing I enjoy about mysteries, especially series, is that generally, there is more going on than just the mystery itself. Often, that other thing is romance, which you all know I love! Below are some of my favorite mystery series; some are historical, some are YA, but all are wonderful!
Currently five books in the series
First Book: A Study in Scarlet Women
The Lady Charlotte series is one of my favorite mystery series ever. I adore Lady Charlotte as she masquerades as Sherlock Holmes. The side characters in this are wonderful, and the mysteries are entertaining!
Currently three Books in the series
Book four expected June 15, 2021
First Book: Truly Devious
Four books in the series
First Book: Jackaby
For those of you who enjoy paranormal, this one is for you! The characters alone make this series a must-read! It’s engaging and quirky, and the mysteries are great too.
Gaslight Mystery Series by Victoria Thompson
23 Books in the series
Book 24 expected April 27, 2021
First Book: Murder on Astor Place
The Gaslight Mystery series was one of the first mystery series I read. It’s a historical mystery, and I enjoyed it. Admittedly, I am not caught up on the series, but those I have read I enjoyed, especially the relationship between Sarah and Frank!
Four Books in the series
First Book: A Study in Charlotte
The Charlotte Holmes series is another Sherlock Holmes retelling. This one is a YA, and while the mystery is interesting, it is really the relationship between Charlotte and Jamie that makes this series so great!
