The idea is to read one book set in each of the 50 US states plus the District of Columbia. This is not where the author is from, but where the book is set. There is no official timeline for this challenge. Just fill in as you read. At least half of your books must be mysteries, to keep with the theme of the group (although they need not necessarily be cozy).


BONUS Challange: Read a book set in every state using ONLY mysteries.

Karen Holman | 72 comments This is a challenge I completed in the summer of 2017. There are books that will complete the most difficult to find states are e-reader titles. So if you have one of these the library is a great place to find them. Enjoy this as it will be fun to search for the titles and maybe a few new authors.

I've found two others books set in South Dakota, both cozy mysteries, An Act of Murder and Passport to Murder. Perhaps they can be useful to somebody.

I have come across two No Dakota titles (I think I've got them right):

Death in Dakota

The Way the Rhubarb Crumbles

Just FYI, my book for South Dakota is Rattling the Heat in Deadwood, #8 in a very good (imo) paranormal mystery series.

Dakota by Martha Grimes -- not a cozy, but it is in the mystery genre.

BTW, I've found another mystery for North Dakota: See Also Murder. I think this time the search is a bit easier as I've added the state to the cozies I include in my library 😉
