Cozy Mysteries

Cozy mysteries are one of the most popular mystery genres. Cozies are known for the way they handle murder. The murder usually occurs out of the sight of the reader and while the cause of death might be gruesome, it is never pushed in front of the reader to hard. Cozies have amateur sleuths who usually have a unique and interesting profession. While they may have close relations with a police officer, the sleuths in these stories are regular people who get pull into murder investigations usually to help clear a close friend or relative. One other key component of these stories is the setting for the story. Cozy mysteries are usually set in small towns where everyone knows each other.

It is so easy to fall in love with a particular sleuth and the town they live in. The good thing is that authors of cozies usually write many books in their series. Browse through the books below and explore the world of cozy mysteries.
