If you prefer your mysteries to be of the cozy variety, ThriftBooks has you covered. Check out the Noodle Shop Mysteries series by Vivien Chien. In the first book, Death by Dumpling, Lana Lee suffers after a brutal breakup and has to return to her family's restaurant, the Ho-Lee Noodle House.

Warm Up with Romances

Don't let the cold weather get you down. Let ThriftBooks' collection of romances keep you warm.

Farrah Rochon's The Boyfriend Project series begins with The Boyfriend Project, a brilliant and engaging love story that celebrates female friendship as well as true love. When Samiah Brooks discovers her boyfriend has been not two-timing but three-timing her during a disastrous live tweet, she enters into a pact with her best friends to spend the next six months free of men. Enter the dreamy Daniel Collins, a man who might be too-good-to-be-true or boyfriend material; Samiah will have to wait and see.

In Janet Evanovich's Thanksgiving, Megan Murphy and Dr. Patrick Hunter have a meet-cute when Patrick's floppy-eared rabbit is found gnawing on Megan's skirt.
