Cozy Mysteries

According to the website, most cozy mysteries take place in small, picturesque towns or villages, with characters the reader could envision having as neighbors or friends. The detectives in cozy mysteries aren't usually experts, but rather everyday people who happen to stumble across dead bodies or have friends who need help. They often have friends or relatives who are in law enforcement who can help them out. One thing that often pulls readers into cozy mysteries is the underlying theme (i.e. pets, hobbies, cooking, etc.) Most cozy mysteries tend to be written in series, so the reader gets to know the character, and can dig further into the theme. Here is a sampling of cozy mysteries to try:   

►Aunt Dimity and the Village Witch by Nancy Atherton
►The Fashion Hound Murders by Elaine Viets
►The Cat Who Brought Down the House by Lilian Jackson Braun
