Murder Will Out - Agatha Christie Read-Alikes

If you like mysteries where all of the main characters are stuck in some kind of confined environment (a large, scary, old house) trying to solve some kind of crime or love the Agatha Christie novels when Poirot dramatically explains the crime's solution at the end of his books to the group of suspects, should enjoy these authors/characters:

Margery Allingham's Albert Campion 

Carolyn Hart's Henrie O'

M. C. Beaton's Agatha Raisin 

Ngaio Marsh's Inspector Alleyn 

Susan Kandel's Cece Caruso

Alexander McCall Smith's No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

David Roberts' Verity Browne & Lord Edward Corinth

Princesses, Princesses, Princesses!

Everyone loves a good princess tale, whether young or old, and the Children's Department has an awesome selection of titles for you to pick from. For the early readers we have such series as: The Tiara Club and Pony-Crazed Princess. For those who like humorous/fractured adaptations of traditional tales, try these spin-off series: The Frog Princess or Princess School. Historical fiction fans will soon learn that some real-life princesses of old did not have a fairy-tale existence at all when they read Girl in a Cage. Three great new additions to our princess collection are: The Extraordinary Princess, The Princess Plot, and Princess of the Midnight Ball. Enjoy CPL's parade of princesses!
