Mystery Lovers Bookshop has been an independent bookstore specializing in the mystery genre for over 25 years. Founded in 1990, we carry over 6,000 titles of books for children and adults. We are dedicated to offering a wide range of books from the mystery genre including thrillers, noir, suspense, and cozies, too. We are located just 20 minutes east of downtown Pittsburgh in the charming retail district of Oakmont, PA.

Having recently celebrated our 25th anniversary on October 31, 2015, the store has a rich history. Founders Mary Alice Gorman and Richard Goldman were nominated for a Bookseller of the Year Award by Publishers Weekly, received the Bookseller of the Year Award from Berkley Books, and recognition for Excellence in the Arts from Pittsburgh Magazine. In 2010, Mystery Lovers Bookshop received the Raven Award from the Mystery Writers of America in recognition of our contribution to the world of mystery writing.

In May 2015, Natalie Sacco and Trevor Thomas, hometown natives, purchased the shop. Natalie and Trevor are very committed to continuing the long tradition that is Mystery Lovers and contributing to the vibrant community of independent booksellers.

Mystery Lovers Bookshop is proud to be a New York Times reporting bookshop.
