About Aunt Agatha’s

After selling mysteries in our brick & mortar store in Ann Arbor, MI, for 26 years, we closed our doors in August of 2018 and moved online.  Our extensive used book collection can be found at abebooks.com (new titles being added every day) and we’ll be offering selected books for sale, including book club picks, on our website. With hopes you’ll continue to enjoy our reviews and our love of the mystery genre.

Aunt Agatha’s Bookstore was the recipient of the 2014 Raven Award, presented by Mystery Writers of America. Established in 1953, the award recognizes outstanding achievement in the mystery field outside the realm of creative writing.

“We are absolutely thrilled and astonished to be the recipient of the Raven Award! We feel we have been privileged for twenty-one years to share our passion for mysteries with readers and to put forward the work of writers we love. We are really grateful to the Mystery Writers of America for this wonderful honor.”
