What is the difference between a crime novel and a mystery novel? Is there overlap? Do you have a preference? Since we can't travel right now, here's a list of crime books set in tourist towns: https://crimereads.com/crime-books-se... See what you think! ~Denise

Marna | 1 comments Definitely there is a difference between a crime novel and a mystery. There have been crime novels where we know who did it from page 1 and the story is not a mystery.
Thanks for sharing the list although I think Jaws is a stretch as a "crime" novel. I have not ready any of the authors. I may need to wait until we are out of the pandemic before reading the pandemic one.
