This month has been pretty hectic for me so I feel like my Cozy Mystery reading sort of was put on a type of semi hold. Also, I ventured out of my Cozy Mystery realm, and tried a few non mysteries. I am currently back to my Cozies, and am reading one of my favorite Cozy authors right now.
How about you? Did you find a particularly good Cozy Mystery this month? Was it the type of Cozy that stands way out from the other Cozies you have read this month? If you did find a Cozy Mystery that good, would you please write a comment and tell us why you think this book is so much better than the rest of the Cozy Mysteries you read during May 2015? The rest of us would love to hear about it! Let’s face it, we’re all looking for a great Cozy Mystery read!
And, since some of you have read several Cozies this month that you think are terrific, would you please put the one you liked the very best at the top of your list? That way the rest of us will know that you think that Cozy is particularly greeeeeaaaaat!
As usual, please do not tell us about the Cozy Mysteries you read this month that you did not like.
What really good Cozy Mystery book did you read during May 2015 that you know the rest of us would enjoy reading, and why did you enjoy it?
