Punny Mysteries

Mystery lovers know there are many mystery sub-genres, such as historical mysteries, “cozy” mysteries, police procedurals, culinary mysteries, various craft-related mysteries, dog and cat mysteries, and more.  One amusing sub-genre is the usually humorous mystery novel that features a play-on-words title.  Some of these titles might make you groan, but I think they are amusing—and intriguing.  Here are some new mysteries in this sub-genre:

Behind the Seams , by Betty Hecthman.

The Blond Leading the Blond, by Jayne Ormerod.

Buried in a Book, by Lucy Arlington.

The Cat Sitter’s Pajamas , by Blaize Clement.

Deader Homes and Gardens, by Joan Hess.

Fashion Faux Paw, by Judi McCoy.

Hearse and Buggy , by Laura Bradford.

Naughty in Nice (Nice, France, that is), by Rhys Bowen.

Sleight of Paw , by Sofie Kelly.
