April is ending, so it’s time to discuss our favorite Cozy Mysteries that we have read this month! If you read a Cozy mystery this month and want to recommend it to the rest of us, be sure to post it here! This month, I’ve unfortunately had less reading time than I would have liked, so all I’ve read is Ann Rule‘s A Rose for Her Grave… which unfortunately isn’t a Cozy mystery, but I still recommend it! (It doesn’t go on this month’s list, though…) If you want to know why I recommend it, be sure to check the post I wrote about it.
So, what have you been reading that you can recommend in April? Please be sure to tell us why you liked these Cozies so much. I know we’re all always on the lookout for more particularly good Cozy Mystery authors! (If you have a lot of Cozies you think are great, please post the ones you like the most at the top of the list.)
As always, please do not tell us about the Cozy Mysteries you did not like.
What really good Cozy Mystery did you read during April 2017 that you want the rest of us to know about, and why did you enjoy it?
