This offer is good thru April 12th.

I have bunches of mysteries listed.  I go thru phases so there is a pretty wide selection.  There are quite a few 'cozy' type mysteries. Most of them are part of series. The majority are probably female sleuths. I also noticed that there is a definite Pet/Animal related theme to many of them.  Some of the authors that I have multiples listed for include: Lilian Jackson Braun, Mary Daheim, M C Beaton, Agatha Christie, Dick Francis, Nevada Barr, Tony Hillerman, and Julie Smith. They vary in condition. Some I purchased new, some were used. Some are swaps and some are ex-library books.

Request any 2 books from my shelf and select 3 additional titles as your bonus.  Please PM me with your bonus titles AND post a reply here to let others know what you've chosen as a bonus to prevent multiple requests for the same book!  You can also request 3 titles from my shelf and PM me with 7 bonus selections.  If you find more than 10 that you would like, PM me your list and make an offer!

You may also choose bonus selections from the following unpostables:

Evanovich, Janet: One For the Money (Heavy wear, some water damage)

Grafton, Sue: Q is for Quarry ( Moderate wear, some water damage to the back cover edge and last few pages)

Brightwell, Emily: Mrs Jeffries & The Silent Knight (Pages wavy from water damage)

Churchill, Jill: Someone to Watch Over Me (Inside front cover page missing)

Ferris, Monica: Unraveled Sleeve (Punctures to the top front cover corner).

Duchin, Peter/John Morgan Wilson: Blue Moon (Wavy page edges - first 30 pages)

Barron, Stephanie: Jane and the Wandering Eye (Spot on side edge)

Coben, Harlan: Tell No One (Inside front cover page missing)


Good hunting...
