Top 10 Tuesday — Halloween Cozies

25 Oct

Last year I posted a Top 10 List of Spooky Christian Fiction for the Halloween Freebie. But I realize not everyone likes creepy-crawly scary. 😉 So here are a few cozy mysteries that will give you that spooky vibe without keeping you up at night! To find more Halloween treats, check out The Broke And The Bookish Top 10 Tuesday.


Top 5 Slightly Spooky Cozy Mysteries


Agatha Christie is considered the Queen of Mystery and her Hercule Poirot series is a favorite for road trips. Her novel, Hallowe’en Party will have you sleuthing right along with Poirot.

Lillian Jackson Braun was the author of the beloved Cat Who series featuring two inquisitive and intuitive cats who aided their owner in solving crimes in upstate Michigan. The Cat Who Talked to Ghosts is a must read for fans of this series.

Janet Evanovich is the popular and prolific creator of the Stephanie Plum series. Her Between The Numbers series features quirkier characters than normal who have a spooky side as well. Plum Spooky is her Halloween offering.

Every book in Carolyn Haines’ Sarah Booth Delaney series features a ghostly sidekick who gives advice from the beyond to help solve the case. Hallowed Bones is a good place to start in this long-running series.

Debbie Viguie has a fun mystery series featuring a church secretary and a rabbi, unlikely partners in crime-solving. The Psalm 23 Mysteries series often revolves around holidays and her Halloween edition is titled I Will Fear No Evil.

    I’ve enjoyed quite a few of the Agatha Christie books, but I don’t think I’ve read Hallowe’en Party. I’ll have to pick it up.

      Brian and I love Hercule so much. In that book we were introduced to Ariadne Oliver, the mystery novelist. She’s a hoot!

    Cozies are a great Halloween suggestion. I don’t read huge amounts of horror, but if it’s something I think will be scary I tend to read in summer so I won’t be walking around in the dark thinking about it 😀

      Smart! Creepy and dark do lead to jumpiness and sleeplessness! Thanks for stopping by!
