September will be coming up soon, so I think it’s time for me to ask all of you about the best Cozies you’ve been reading in August. As some of you know, I highlighted two Cozy Mystery series (Katherine Hall Page’s Faith Fairchild Mystery Series and E.J. Copperman’s Haunted Guesthouse Mystery Series), both of which are great examples of popular and entertaining Cozies. Instead of repeating myself here, 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 Cozy Mysteries that you’ve read during August do you think stand out from the rest? 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 August 2016 that you want the rest of us to know about, and why did you enjoy it?
