Recommended reads: Cozy Mysteries

Cozy mysteries feature a sleuth (usually female) who uses their smarts to solve crimes while the police bumble along. Cozy sleuths are often business owners or hobbyists who bring elements of their own interests into the story. In many cases the author will include recipes, craft tips or patterns that relate to the storyline. There are hundreds of series out there, but here are a few of our recent acquisitions:
