July 4th Mysteries




Looking for a book to read with a holiday theme?


Book lists exist for every holiday during the year, with some titles on some lists that could be used with several different holidays.  Switch Christmas for the USA 4th of July in the text and the story might work just as well – the mystery being the essential part of the piece.


This abbreviated list contains entertaining books by bestselling and/or well known authors where the 4th of July theme is actually important to the novel. If you know of others, please tell us in the comment section.  🙂
