I LOVE to READ.
One crazy year, I read 114 books so that I could meet my goal of reading 100 books in one year!
I know that this is a crafty blog, but there are some great crafty cozy mystery books, that I know you would love to read!
What is a “crafty cozy mystery?”
My Definition: A crafty cozy murder mystery where there is no graphic description of the murder, instead the book focuses on the main character trying to solve the mystery (this definition is for any cozy mystery.) Add in the fun details about crafts, and you will be hooked on your book!
All of these books are in a series, I listed book one, unless otherwise noted.
I am not a knitter, but I LOVE the description of the wool in the books!!! I wish I could visit the shops described in the books and touch all the wool!
Knit One, Kill Two by Maggie Sefton
Died in the Wool by Mary Kruger
These books make me want to pull out unfinished projects, and sew as I am reading!
The Quick and the Thread by Amanda Lee
Dire Threads by Janet Bolin
Sewing / Quilting
This book is a fun read for quilters!
Pinned for Murder by Elizabeth Lynn Casey (Sew Deadly is the 1st book)
DIY Home Repairs
You will think that your last DIY project was easy compared to solving a murder and fixing up a house!
Fatal Fixer-Upper Do-It-Yourself Mystery by Jenna Bennett
If Walls could Talk Haunted Home Mystery by Juliet Blackwell
How does this fit? I feel like shopping and finding cool projects are half the work of crafting (and they are fun books!)
Skirting the Grave by Annette Blair (not the 1st book)
Shadows at the Fair by Lea Wait Antique Print Mystery
You will love this series (it is my favorite, and so funny.) In the 1st book, the hero Meg is a bridesmaid in three weddings, and has a murder to solve. You will not see much of her blacksmith business in this book. This book also has an Agatha Award (which means it is a great mystery!!!!)
Murder with Peacocks by Donna Andrews
I know that I am just scratching the surface of great books that fit in the genre of crafty cozy mysteries! If you have a “crafty cozy mystery” recommendation, I would love to hear it!
