I’m going to try to keep this super short, so we can get right to our April 2015 Cozy Mystery book recommendations. If you read a Cozy Mystery this month that you think far exceeded your expectations, would you please tell the rest of us about it. We’d not only like to see which Cozy you think was the best you read this month, but also why you think it was better than all the rest of the Cozies you read during April.
Also, if you tell us about several great Cozies you read this month (and why you liked them so much) please put the one that you think was the absolute best of the best at the top of your list.
Please do not tell us about the Cozy/Cozies you read that you did not like.
What really good Cozy Mystery book did you read during April 2015 that you know the rest of us would enjoy reading, and why did you enjoy it?
