Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Cozy Mysteries Set During Halloween

Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl which is all about lists.  Since lists are one of my favorite things this is one of my favorite linkups!  Today's topic is a Halloween freebie so I thought I'd look at the cozies that take place during Halloween - or at least center around fall with pumpkins galore.

1.  Deadly Brew by Lynn Cahoon - I don't remember how much Halloween factored into this novella but they were in a haunted house and the cover just screams Halloween.

2.  Be Careful What You Witch For by Dawn Eastman - This one is more fall festival but that still counts. 

3.   The Spook in the Stacks by Eva Gates -  There's a ghost ship and lectures on spooky stuff.  It really sounds like a fun way to celebrate.  And it features a library in a lighthouse so that's hard to pass up.

4.  A Vintage Death by Mary Ellen Hughes - A town full of fun shops and they're decorating for Halloween.

5.  Grave Errors by Carol J Perry - This is Halloween in Salem so that's hard to beat.  Plus, this is really just a great series.

6.  The Pint of No Return by Ellie Alexander - I love another series by this author and I've been really wanting to give this series a try.  This one has Oktoberfest so that sounds fun.

7.  Masking for Trouble by Diane Vallere - What's more Halloween-y then Halloween in a costume shop?

8.  Lord of the Wings by Donna Andrews - This is one of my absolue favorite cozy mystery series and this is one I haven't read AND it takes place during Halloween.

9.  Murder, She Wrote: The Ghost and Mrs. Fletcher by Donald Bains - I'm not sure how Halloween-y this one actually is but I love Jessica Fletcher and with that title how could I resist this one?

10. A Haunting is Brewing by Juliet Blackwell - There's a haunted house and a Halloween party in this novella.  It's so much fun!

What are some books in your favorite genre that take place during Halloween?


  1. These sound great!

  2. I thought about doing cozies too. So many awesome titles and covers! The Pint looks fun! :)

  3. As I am not into reading horror - I think reading Halloween cosies is a lovely idea! Thank you for a great list:)

  4. Fun list! I'm reading BEYOND A REASONABLE STOUT, the third book in the Sloan Krause series you mentioned above, right now. It's a nice, light series that I'm enjoying.

  5. I don't think I've ever read books set during Halloween.

  6. Nice to have a fave series and a Halloween book in it to read that you haven't read. Hope you enjoy celebrating Halloween.
