I really need MOST of the Leslie Meier series featuring protage Lucy Stone... starting with The Back-to-School Murder.

Looking to fill in gaps or complete MANY MANY MANY series... and start others (in PAPERBACK only please)

Some of my favorite sub-genres...


English historicals - Victorian, Edwardian, Regency, Georgian, Restoration eras (a couple 1920-1940 mystereies as well)

P.B. Ryan's Gilded Age mysteries (I believe an historical American series set in Boston) - need all of them

Victoria Thompson's Gaslight series (set in NYC in the early 1900's - I only need the last few)

Sherlock Holmes pastiches

Ancient Egypt historicals

archaeological mysteries

vintage mysteries- Golden Age of Detection era - American or British

gothic vintage mysteries and romantic suspense (covers usually show a big house, and a woman in a nightgown running away from it, you know the type)

cozies (can be American or British) culinary(esp. baking), crafty, some animal related, book related, coffee or tea related - amateur sleuth


Send me your offers, or I can look at your shelves and make an offer

I have a larger shelf, with lots of mysteries, and am doing a deal, order two, get two free.  Take a look and see if any interest you.  If several wanted, may be able to work out a better deal.

I have the following:

Knock 'em Dead (Finley Anderson Tanner Mystery - 2nd in series) - Rhonda Pollero

Sucker Punch (Candy Shop Mystery - 5th in series) - Sammi Carter

Diva Runs Out of Thyme, Diva Takes the Cake, Diva Cooks a Goose (Domestic Diva Mystery - 1st, 2nd, 4th in series) - Krista Davis (I also have the 3rd in the series - Diva Paints the Town - that  I'm considering unpostable because the cover has a 2 inch tear next to the spine.  I would send that as a freebie if you wanted the others)

Mozzarella Most Murderous, Bon Bon Voyage, French Fried (Culinary Mystery - last 3 in series) - Nancy Fairbanks.

Let me know if you are interested in any of them and I am sure we could work out a deal.  Thanks for looking.  Kris

  I am running a 2-for-1 credit on my bookshelf - lots of cozy mysteries, including some series.  Moat are my own and in excellent shape.  Some are from a library book sale - just ask if condition is a key factor. Also, 5-for-1 Harlequins from the library book sale.

Hi Christy!  About half my Bookshelf is mysteries, mostly cozies.  My shelf is always 3-for-2 or 5-for-3, which may include 1 Wish-Listed book. I will consider better deals for bigger orders, so feel free to ask!  :)  I do have Death on Beacon Hill by P.B. Ryan (which is wish-listed) in my Book List "Wish List books Available to Order,"  and in my post in the Wish List Multiples thread.  You can find my Book Lists on my Profile page at the bottom of the right-hand column.  My "Wish List books Available to Order" list includes the wish-listed books I have available for orders of 2 or more (orders may include Bookshelf books), which I post on the Wish-List Multiples thread.
