In honor of Mystery Month at Booklist, I would like to write about five of my favorite mystery books.

Guilty Wives by James Patterson
When best friends Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah embark on a vacation of a lifetime in Monte Carlo, it quickly turns into a nightmare when they are arrested aboard an unfamiliar yacht and accused of an unthinkable crime.

I’ll Walk Alone by Mary Higgins Clark

Alexandra Moreland is a rising star in the architectural world in Manhattan but when she is plagued by identity theft her world is turned upside down. Someone has gained access to her credit cards, bank accounts and other personal information and is impersonating her. Alexandra is arrested for the murder of a woman she doesn’t even know and now must fight for her freedom.

In this first in a series about cookie-baking sleuth Hannah Swenson, she must protect her reputation when a popular delivery man is found murdered behind her bakery with Hannah’s cookies scattered around him. 
 D.C. Dead by Stuart Woods

While Stone Barrington is evaluating his life in New York as a Woodman & Weld partner after a shocking loss, he is summoned by the President to Washington, D.C. and assigned to a special ops mission that reunites him with his former partner, Holly Barker.

 One for the Money by Janet Evanovich

Janet Evanovich is known for her humor in writing mystery fiction. This book introduces us to Stephanie Plum who becomes a bounty hunter when she is out of work and out of money. Her first assignment is to track down a local vice cop on the fun for murder.
