I can hardly believe it is almost December! I don’t know whether this is because the year seems to have gone by so fast, or if it’s because I just remembered to take the recycling out a half hour ago, and I didn’t even need to wear a sweater over my elbow-length-sleeves shirt while running the bin down to the curb. It just doesn’t seem like we should be so close to 2015!
This is the time of the month where I ask you to please tell us if you read an extremely good Cozy Mystery book during November, and tell us what made that Cozy Mystery stand out as being so good. Please only tell us about the Cozies that were much better than the rest of the other Cozy Mystery books you read during November. Of course, if you read only one or two Cozy Mysteries this month, and liked both of them a lot, then please tell us about them.
[As usual, I ask that you don’t tell us about the mystery books you read that you didn’t like.]
