To be honest, I’m not sure I know the answer.
Although, I’ve been reading and researching both genres for months.
My favorite movies and books are mystery/suspense. I’m writing (I hope) what will turn out to be a suspense novel. Once I re-read the following article compliments of Dan Alatorre and his guest blogger, Allison Maruska I may decide it’s a mystery. Stay tuned.
What did I pick up from Allison’s post?
Solve a mystery.
Stop the suspense.
These two genres fold into other genres such as romance and Sci-fi. There is always something to stop or something to solve.
Now your turn. Click and read how Allison Maruska explains the Suspense & Mystery genre.

Did you already know the difference?
Do you agree with her analogy?
