This is one of my favorite monthly entries of the Cozy Mystery site. I absolutely love to read about the Cozies that you ALL consider your best finds for the designated month. I find most of my new-to-me Cozy authors from this entry. I can get a pretty good feel of whether I’ll enjoy a book from reading your reasons for liking your recommended Cozies.
We’d love to read about your favorite Cozy Mystery books for the month of June. If you have more than one Cozy you think is particularly good, please put the one you liked the most at the very top of your list.
Please do not tell us about the Cozy Mysteries you did not like.
What really good Cozy Mystery book did you read during June 2015 that you want the rest of us to know about, and why did you enjoy it?
