It doesn’t take a detective to discover our expansive collection of whodunits, thrillers, and cozy mystery novels! The mystery cottage is our proud original storefront, established on Sanibel in 2013. Once you enter our iconic blue and yellow clock tower just off the bike path on Periwinkle Way, you’ll be welcomed by our signature stacks of mysteries from around the world! From classic cynical noir detectives to sunny Sanibel sleuths, cozy culinary conundrums to heart-pounding international espionage- rest assured, if you’re looking for it, we’ve got it. Our mysteries are organized by country and region with most at thrillingly low prices, making it easy for you to discover new and exciting novels from all around the globe. Come and find all of your favorite authors, including Harlan Coben, Agatha Christie, James Patterson, Mary Kay Andrews, John Grisham, and many, many more! Looking for something with more of a local flair? Take a gander at our extensive Florida mystery section: you’ll find Sanibel based favorites like Ron Base, Jennifer Schiff, and Randy Wayne White of Doc Ford fame. As this is the first cottage of ours you will be entering at this location, you’ll also find all-time bestsellers of several other genres right up front for you to easily find your next beach read. If you DO manage to stump us with a title we don’t have in stock, let us know and we can see about making a special order just for you. Feel free to ask one of our friendly staff members for current bestsellers, book club recommendations, employee favorites, and any other mysteries questions you might have! Just make sure you wander out our back door, as there are plenty more books to discover in our fiction and literature cottages!
