First, I hope all of you have a good Memorial Day. For those of you who are not American, Memorial Day is a day we take the time to think of and honor the men and women who have served to defend our country. So whether you are American or not, please take the time to thank someone who has helped serve to keep your nation a safer!
We’re reaching the end of May, 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 read about two excellent Cozy Mystery Series: Rita Lakin‘s Gladdy Gold Mystery Series and Melissa Bourbon‘s Magical Dressmaking Mystery Series.
If you’re interested in reading why I’m recommending these series, 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 May? 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 May 2017 that you want the rest of us to know about, and why did you enjoy it?
