What better way to spend an hour or two than browsing a bookstore, especially if it is packed wall-to-wall with murder, mystery and deceit? Once Upon a Crime is a cozy bookstore that, despite its size, is loaded with excellent mysteries. The main shop features brand-spankin’ new mysteries – from cozies to police procedurals and plenty of local Minnesota authors (of which there are legion). A large rack of imports features more exotic foreign titles. In addition, their annex houses thousands of used and rare titles. The golden era mystery fan will want to spend some series time in here. Be sure to check their schedule as they have numerous author speakers booked throughout each month.
