MysteryThrillerWeek: Historical Mysteries and Thrillers Theme

Welcome to the third of four themed posts about MysteryThrillerWeek, an annual event celebrating the Mystery and Thriller genres!

Today I’m thrilled to share with you eight books from the Historical Mysteries and Thrillers Theme, books which transport you back to Amsterdam during World War Two, Victorian England, a slave ship sailing round the Horn of South Africa, the Roman Empire, the Middle East during the 1st century C.E., America in the early 1900s, and the Wild West.

Authors Michael Smorenburg, Edwin Herbert, J.B. Richards, Khristina Atkinson, Marie Silk, Maggi Andersen, and Jane Jordan have kindly provided a description of their historical setting and story. I’ve also included information about my own historical fiction novel.

Be sure to sign up as a Super Fan on the MysteryThrillerWeek website to be kept up-to-date of all the fun games, prizes and giveaways taking place during the event, February 12 – 22, 2017:

I look forward to seeing you there!

Happy Thanksgiving from Travel By Book

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!

To celebrate the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday in the United States – and commemorate Canada’s recent celebration (on October 8) – I would like to share with you some great reads set in these two incredible countries.

Take a break from the holiday stress and sail the world while surfing and smuggling drugs to Hawaii, solve a mystery in a Canadian funeral home, or find out how a quiche recipe sets off a baking rivalry in a Rhode Island mill town. Discover hidden secrets in the Northern Cascades, travel along with an audacious American polar explorer, or help protect an art professor from a murderer.

Featured in this post are novels by Melissa Burovac, Lucia N. Davis, Joanna Kafarowski, Eva Pasco, Janice J. Richardson and Tempeste Blake.

Read more about their books on my blog.
