If you're like me, one of the best ways to prepare for a trip is to immerse yourself in novels set in the destination. When it comes to a visit to England, there's nothing like a cozy mystery novel.

I absolutely cannot get enough English murder mysteries. From the first time I read And Then There Were None in lower school, I haven't been able to put them down. That said, I'm 100% an audiobook aficionado. I love being able to take in a novel while doing other things - driving to work, doing laundry, working off the pinot grigio at the gym...

Here's my round-up of the best ones available on audio:
Being lawyers, my husband and I read all day at work, but I also love books. Over the last several years, I’ve been so happy to have discovered audiobooks. I also find using books as a great way to prepare for a trip - no matter where we're going, I load up on books about the place. And, since we're always going to England, English mystery novels perform double duty for me!
With audiobooks, unlike "normal" books, finding the right fit is two-fold - you need both the perfect book and a very talented narrator. The narrator can't go too over-the-top with the various characters' voices, must interpret the book in a way you like, and, generally, you have to be OK with them becoming the voice in your head for at least a few days! I'm happiest when I find a series that I can keep relying on - and don't worry, there are quite a few of those below!
The links above and below take you to the Amazon page for the books - just select "audiobook" to get the audiobook, rather than the physical book. Amazon's audiobooks are managed through Audible.
