This is my third year at Bev’s Vintage’s Mystery Challenge. 🙂 VMC turns ten in 2021 and Bev’s gone back to the early days and revived her Vintage Scattergories theme. You can read more on this at Bev’s website.
I love me a good vintage mystery. This year, I have planned to read a variety of authors; move a little out of my comfort zone and try authors new to me.
Genuine Fakes: Read a book by an author who wrote under a pseudonym.
Leave it to the Professionals: A book featuring cops, PIs, secret service, professional spies, etc.
Repeat Offenders: A mystery featuring your favorite series detective or by your favorite author or reread an old favorite
World Traveler: A book set in any country except the US or the UK
