Thanksgiving is in November, and the fall weather has really kicked in. At the Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library, we think that's the perfect excuse to grab a blanket and a pile of cozy mysteries and read the day away! Here are five Thanksgiving-themed cozy mysteries that are perfect fun for this month:

'Turkey Day Murder'

By Leslie Meier

The quiet town of Tinker's Cove finds their many Thanksgiving celebrations interrupted by a murder investigation. Lucy Stone must figure out who on the long list of suspects killed Curt Nolan and left an ancient war club next to his head.

'Turkey Trot Murder' By Leslie Meier

Another great story from Leslie Meier! Tinker's Cove is once again disturbed by murder during the Thanksgiving season. This time Alison Franklin is found dead and frozen in Blueberry Pond. Lucy Stone must race against time to find out who the murderer is.

'Death of a Turkey'

By Kate Borden

Peggy Jean Turner, mayor, single mom and hardware store owner, finds herself the suspect of a murder investigation when her obnoxious neighbor is found dead in the middle of town. Can Peggy clear her name in time to organize a reenactment of the first Thanksgiving?

'A Catered Thanksgiving'

By Isis Crawford

Bernie and Libby Simmons must cater the perfect Thanksgiving for the Field family, who can't seem to get along. They constantly fight for a spot in Monty Field's will, but someone decides to take matters into their own hands by placing a bomb in the turkey. The caterers, the family and the murderer are trapped in the mansion due to a snowstorm. Can they find out who did it before only the murderer is left? This book also contains recipes!

'Raspberry Danish Murder'

By Joanne Fluke

Hannah Swenson Barton is trying to piece together her Thanksgiving season after her husband Ross vanishes. Her plans are ruined once again when Ross's assistant, who has been driving his car and using his desk at work, is murdered. Now Hannah must find out who did it and if her husband was the real target all along. This book also includes recipes!
