I have one friend in particular who shares the same likes and dislikes as I do when it comes to cozy mystery books and authors. When she recommends a cozy mystery author or cozy mystery series to me, I am 99% sure that I will share her opinion of the author or series. There have been very few times that I have tried one of "her" authors or series that I didn’t end up adding to my "favorites" list.
This particular friend has told me about many authors who I now follow. She also shares my enjoyment for reading seasonal/holiday cozy mysteries. I know that I can safely add an unknown (to me) recommended author to my Amazon wish list. I hope that I have been able to supply her with at least half of the author/series ideas that she has shared with me. I am always in quest of a good cozy mystery book to read, and enjoy getting her suggestions.
