April is winding down, so now is the time to talk about our favorite Cozy Mysteries that we read in the last month.
Unfortunately, this has been another bad month for me in terms of reading – I haven’t had time to read any Cozies for me to recommend this month.
As always, you can go to the Most Popular & Recommended Cozy Mystery Series page on my Cozy-Mystery site for my full write-ups on each of these great Cozy series.
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 2018 that you want the rest of us to know about, and why did you enjoy it?
