12 Days of Mysteries: Day 12
First up: check out the highly prolific Caroline Lawrence! She has two fantastic series: THE ROMAN MYSTERIES (set in ancient history) and THE P.K. PINKERTON MYSTERIES (set in the Wild West!) The New York Times has raved about the PINKERTON MYSTERIES; check out this amazing review! (Then be sure to come right back here!)
THE CASE OF THE DEADLY DESPERADOES and
THE CASE OF THE GOOD-LOOKING CORPSE
And there are at least 17 (!!) ROMAN MYSTERIES! (You can click on the link here to see them all on GoodReads -- and all the pretty covers!)
Another series to check out: The KIKI STRIKES books by Kirsten Miller, which hits the sweet spot between MG/YA. (We've mentioned them before on the blog, but we're cross-posting here in case you didn't realize this is a entire series, with four books so far).
YA mystery fans should check out these series:
Ally Carter's HEIST SOCIETY and GALLAGHER GIRLS books.
Sara Shephard's PRETTY LITTLE LIARS.
Gabrielle Zevin's BIRTHRIGHT series (Great mob family to read about -- set in a future world where chocolate and coffee are illegal!)
