Top 10 Tuesday: Books for Lovers of British Mysteries (+ A Canadian Cousin)

15 Aug

Top 10 Tuesday is back! Yay! The folks at The Broke And The Bookish had some well-deserved time off, but now they are back with great topics for book lovers. This week I’m talking about book recommendations for lovers of British mysteries. I love a good mystery and have found the following books to meet all the requirements — puzzling cases set in the British Isles. They run the gamut from historical and contemporary, amateur detectives and police procedurals, to urban and bucolic settings. Ironically, a couple of the series, while definitely having a British vibe, are authored by Americans. All are excellent!

    Drew Farthering has been on my to read list for a few months. Currently I’m reading a Dr. Hailey (#12 Murder of Lady, recommended by another blogger) Great list!

    I really need to read more mystery 🙂 I think the only mystery I remember reading is by Agatha Christie o.O

      Mysteries are good for the little gray cells. 😉 At least according to Hercule Poirot!

    *swoon* Love the Drew & Co. mysteries! One of my favorites. Elizabeth Flynn’s books look interesting too. Oh and of course, I always enjoy Rachel’s fun mysteries! 🙂

      Flynn’s books are good — contemporary police procedurals in London. And D.I. Costello is a strong female character.

    I love that you included Drew Farthering and the Herringford and Watts series. I’ve been watching the Father Brown mystery series on Netflix and am now curious about the original book series.

      I have the Father Brown series on my shelf. Need to find more time for great mysteries.
