I don't normally read a lot of historical mysteries, but in the past couple of months I've picked up quite a few that looked really good, so I'm jumping in this year.

1.)  A little bit creepy in here. (paranormal aspect, or the word "creepy or creep", or the word "little" etc.)

2.) Pick a color - any color (pretty self explanatory- word of a color in title or however you would like to interpret this)

3.) Is this the place? (title has a location which could be a country, county, manor, etc.)

4.) Royal Scoundrels (something to do with royalty, scoundrels, etc.)

5.) For heaven's sake (something to do with religion, the word "heaven" or the word "sake")

6.) We don't need no stinkin' badges (someone other than police who work on a mystery, the word "stink or stinking", the word badges, etc.)

Frog Music - Emma Donoghue - Completed 1/11/15 (non-police solving a mystery)

7.) All that jazz (has to do with music or the roaring 20's etc)

8.) Diamonds are a girl's best friend (jewels, girl, friend, etc.)

9.) When Johnny comes marching home (war, uniforms, march, home, etc.)

10.) You're killing me (you get the picture by now!)
