Indie E-Con Mystery Show and Tell

It's Mystery Day at the Indie e-Con, so I wanted to share about the indie-published mysteries I've read and enjoyed. Mysteries are one of my favorite genres, after all, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity!

Although this book isn't technically indie-published, the author is an indie author who wrote a book for the Vintage Jane Austen series, Emily Ann Benedict. This is a clean, clever, and funny FBI mystery with a refreshing Christian message. Read my review on Goodreads.

This book is by one of my favorite authors, Sarah Holman. It's the first of a series (I've enjoyed them all!) that's exciting, clean, and character-driven, with great Christian depth. Read my review on Goodreads.

This mystery was so much fun! Written in the crisp, witty, and deliciously descriptive style of old British detective novels, Rachel Heffington's book was a wonderful experience. Read my review on Goodreads.

I've only read books 4, 5, and 6 of this fun and absorbing series, but I'm itching to read the others. Lisa B. Thomas is an author I proofread for with a real knack for spinning a mystery.

What are your favorite mysteries?


  1. I haven't read a lot of pure mysteries since I aged out of Nancy Drew, but I did love the Jackaby series by William Ritter. It's not indie, but it's delightful fantasy-mystery. And I want to read Anon, Sir Anon quite a lot.

    1. Nancy Drew was my favorite! Still a fan, in essence. :) The Jackaby series sounds intriguing. I was just thinking about how cool it'd be if there was a fantasy-mystery series, so thanks for bringing it up.

  2. Love the Kate's Case Files books! <3 I really need to read Angels Are Bulletproof and Anon, Sir, Anon!

    As for favorite Mysteries... well... the Sherlock Holmes books, especially the short stories. ;) Father Brown. The Red House Mystery by A. A. Milne. The Hardy Boys etc. But those are all old classics...

    As for recenter, indie mysteries, Never by J. Grace Pennington, Sarah Holman's Kate books, and Masque by W. R. Gingell are all really good. (That last is actually a fantasy mystery with a Beauty and the Beast twist!)

    1. Yes, yes, yes! If you love the Kate's Case Files, you'd love the others. :)

      Sherlock Holmes and Father Brown, love them! I haven't actually read any of the others, but I'm especially interested in The Red House Mystery.

      All your choices sound great! I need to read Never, and Masque sounds very intriguing.

      Thanks for dropping by!

    2. The Red House Mystery is in the public domain so I got it free on :)

  3. Thanks for the well written and interesting article!
