Carolyn’s My Kind Of Mystery

I have run My Kind Of Mystery since 2014!  It is the only group to cover every kind of book about mysteries;  even biographies and tutorials!  If you read any mystery material:  this group is for you.  I created it, in answer to excessive focus on the crime type.  Many think of that as a synonym, rather than one branch.  I love solving MYSTERIES, far better than solving crimes.  When hosts devised bingo cards, or capped publishing dates;  the books we could qualify narrowed more.  Here is a place for all of them!

I don’t have time to break-up genres and groups with no prizes are pointless work.  My criteria is to join and share, with optional festivities.  I have been happy to contribute to the wonderful mystery community for six years!

Join me via the link in our logo!  The identify of its originating novel is a riddle to solve.  Contact me with guesses any time you would like to venture them.  Please enjoy and return to see my reviews as I write them.
