As it will soon my August, it’s time for me to ask you ALL about the Cozies you’ve been reading this month. As some of you know, I highlighted two Cozy Mystery series (Cleo Coyle’s Coffeehouse Mystery Series and Leslie Meier’s Lucy Stone Mystery Series) that are popular for a reason: they’re both great examples of what we look for in our Cozies! So rather than repeat everything I previously said about my two picks for this month’s recommendations, I’ll refer you to the Most Popular & Recommended Cozy Mystery Series page on my Cozy-Mystery site.
So, are there any Cozy Mysteries that you’ve read during July that you think stand out as better than the rest of the Cozies you read this month? If so, would you please tell us about these really good Cozies and why you liked them so much? I think it’s fair to say that most of us are always on the look-out for new-to-us Cozy Mystery authors! We’d appreciate hearing about the Cozy Mysteries you especially liked, so that we can read them, too. (If you have a lot of Cozies you think are terrific, would you post the ones you think are even better than the others at the top of the list?)
As usual, please do not tell us about the Cozy Mysteries you did not like.
What really good Cozy Mystery did you read during July 2016 that you want the rest of us to know about, and why did you enjoy it?
