Recommended reads: Cozy Mysteries

Cozy mysteries feature a sleuth (usually female) who uses their smarts to solve crimes while the police bumble along. Cozy sleuths are often business owners or hobbyists who bring elements of their own interests into the story. In many cases the author will include recipes, craft tips or patterns that relate to the storyline. There are hundreds of series out there, but here are a few of our recent acquisitions:

IMG_1891

Cleo Coyle’s Coffeehouse Mysteries feature a spunky coffee slinger who is starting her life over and solving crimes.

IMG_1892

Diane Mott Davidson’s culinary mysteries feature a single mom with a bustling catering business, a dangerously nasty ex-husband and a nose for finding dead bodies. This series is a shop favorite!

IMG_1895

Laura Childs’ Tea Room Mystery series includes all kinds of information and tips on teas and tea brewing (and murder-solving!)

IMG_1902

A mystery for book collectors and lovers of rare editions.

An 1811 copy of the US Constitution for sale!!! – UPDATE: SOLD!!

The Constitutions of the United States According to the Latest Amendments:

IMG_1705

Our inventory entry on this exceedingly rare title:

Including the Constitution (with 11 amendments, the recent 12th is included at the end of the text) Declaration of Independence, State Constitutions of New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Vermont, Tennessee, Kentucky and Ohio and the charter of Rhode Island. Also includes Washington’s farewell address.

Condition being tricky to assess for a book this old, we chose a “good” grade as it is related to the significant age of the book, but please carefully note the points listed below before purchasing: Full leather binding shows rubbing, chipping and a 1″ crack at front. Boards are a bit bowed. Pages are edge worn, heavily toned and foxed but not brittle. Several prior owners (all looking to be in the early 1800s) names inked to endpapers. Bumped board corners and rounded page corners. Lower corner of frontis is missing but portrait of G Washington is complete on page. Page edges are rippled. Strong binding, a collectible that can still be read and enjoyed by its new owner.

The Best Worst Books for October

There’s plenty of fantastically bad horror out there, but any 90’s teen can tell you that authors like Christopher Pike and RL Stein were absolutely slaying in the genre (see what we did there?) We’ve been scooping up every one of these ¬†classics of teen slasher lit, and they’re waiting for you at Rickert & Beagle!
