Cozy Up

One of my favorite escapes is reading cozy mysteries. Most of my friends find this weird as I love most science based shows, so why go amatuer for a detective series. Probably because there’s so many cop/forensic shows on TV. And while I watch a few, I’m a little burned out on them.

Growing up my favorite mysteries were written by M. M. Kaye, Elizabeth Peters, Charlotte MacLeod, Agatha Christie (big fan of Ms. Marple, not so much Poirot), plus their assorted pseudonyms. 

You may detect a pattern here.

Yep, I like a little romance in my mysteries. I also prefer female sleuths.

And while most of my favorites no longer produce new books (usually because of mortality issues), I have found some new ones: Jenna Bennett, KT Roberts, Lizz Lund, Cindy Bell, H.Y .Hanna, and Lois Winston. Oddly enough, there’s still a flavor of romance but now many of the books are coupled with food/recipes or crafts and always pretty unique characters.

If you have a favorite cozy mystery author, let me know about them in the comments section. I’m always looking for new authors.

Until next time.
