For the last two years I’ve published a list of my recommendations of the best mystery books for book clubs. These have become my most popular articles. In considering what was important for a book club, I realized you need more than just an excellent book. Book clubs need stories where there are philosophical discussions and moral issues.
These are my recommendations based on the books I have reviewed this year. I read so many outstanding books this year it was difficult to narrow the list down to only ten. All of the books on this list received a five star out of five rating.
I have presented them in alphabetical order. They span the mystery genre. There are cozy mysteries, historical mysteries, thrillers and even a short story. The authors span the gamut from names you see in the grocery store to a first time author. There are books from large publishers, small presses and one is only e-published.
Many of these authors are pleased to attend book clubs depending on the distance either in person or by Skype.
Please comment and share your favorite book for a book club.
