Well, another one bites the dust! I am always very sad when I find that I absolutely cannot be faithful to an author who I have followed through several books.
Tonight, I found that I could not sleep, so I got my current trusty cozy mystery novel out to read, in hopes that I would be able to get so interested in the mystery that I didn’t just lie there in bed worrying about things that are simply not big enough worries to worry about… As I read the book, I kept finding myself worrying about things that weren’t worth worrying about…. and then I found myself worrying about how I was going to get out of bed to go find another book to read… without waking my husband.
As any devoted cozy mystery reader knows……. we should be enjoying our novels, not wondering how we are going to be able to get another one easily…. (As I am writing this, I am thinking that I sound like an addict, wondering how I am going to get my next "fix" without attracting attention!) That’s not how our novels should make us feel…
So, before I go get another cozy from my "TBR" pile of books (TBR=To Be Read), I find myself at my computer, writing this blog, almost as an homage to one of my once-favorite-cozy series. I am truly sorry to take this author off of my favorite authors list, but I find that it’s time to do so. I know that I won’t be revisiting the books’ characters in the future and I will miss them, not so much as the characters they have become, but as the characters they were when I first got to know them… several books ago.
