Christmas mystery books are some of the most fun holiday books to read for crime mystery novels. Most of these books are cozies, although you can find a gem or two for those who love their books to be a bit more serious and gory. What I like about the cozy Christmas mysteries is their cover. They are just so cute, I can’t stop looking at them and smiling. Cute kitties, puppies, fun covers that really put you in that Christmas spirit – with a bit of sleuthing in between.
This year we have seen several Christmas mysteries, and I have put together a list of all the books that I am aware of. So below is the list of Christmas mystery books for 2014.
The books are listed in order of publication from the earliest novel to the latest published this year. If you have read or known of a book that is not on this list, let me know, so I can add it here.
