This Cozy Mystery Theme will be presented in five separate entries, since there are so many authors on the site who write (in some cases I should say “wrote”…. but I will do the entries in the present tense) MYSTERY SERIES THAT TAKE PLACE IN DIFFERENT PERIODS OF TIME… The mystery authors whose last names begin with A and B, and who write “PERIOD MYSTERIES” are:
Suzanne Adair: Adair is a new author and she is writing the American Revolution Mystery Series.
Susan Wittig Albert: The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter take place in England during the early 1900s, with Beatrix Potter and her menagerie of animals. The Darling Dahlias Mystery Series takes place in Depression era Alabama.
Bruce Alexander (aka Bruce Cook): The Sir John Fielding Mystery Series takes place in England during the 18th century and revolves around a blind judge.
Tasha Alexander: Writes the Lady Emily Mystery Series which is set in Victorian England.
Conrad Allen (aka Edward Marston & Keith Miles): The Dillman Mystery Series takes place on the high seas during the early 1900s and has, as its sleuths, a husband and wife team who keep their marriage a secret to better enable them to blend in with the other passengers of the ship.

Bernard Bastable (aka Robert Barnard): The Amadeus Mozart Mystery Series is set in England during the 1820s, and not in the second part of the 1700s as one might expect!
George Baxt: The Celebrity Murder Series: With such celebrities as Alfred Hitchcock, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Mae West, Bette Davis… when else could this series take place but during Hollywood’s heyday… 1920s until the mid 20th century.
