Cozy Mysteries

These books provide a fun read that engages a reader’s mind.  Cozy mysteries are considered gentle reads – no sex, no profanity, no violence – and are light-hearted and funny.  They are fast-paced with several twists and turns.  There is an emphasis on plot and character development.
