Anyone have a recommendation for a fun Halloween mystery?  It can be cozy or not.  I thinking of using it for the mystery 2010 challenge, but it is just sort of fun to read that type of thing this this time of year.  I have checked out a couple of web sites but I would like your opinion, if you have one. laugh

Have you looked at http://www.stopyourekillingme.com/ ? They have a section for holiday theme mysteries. Good luck!

You might like the one that I just discovered that I can use for the challenge. It's The Gates by John Connolly. Quite a bit of paranormal, but mystery too and a different, fun read! Definitely about Halloween!!!
