Jamese there have been a lot of votes on here


message 2: by Andréa (new)

Andréa I love so many of the books on this list, but a lot of them don't fit my idea of cozy mysteries.

For me, cozies are separate from what I think of as rom.com. mysteries, in which the humor and romance are as important, if not more so, than the mystery element (such as Janet Evanovich's books, much as I love them). I also view cozies as separate from the more suspenseful mysteries in which a happy ending isn't a sure thing. And, in general, while I love YA books there aren't many YA mysteries that I would consider cozies.


message 3: by Sherilyn (new)

Sherilyn But what about the Louise Penney and CS Harris novels --They absolutely should be included.


message 4: by Deborah (new)

Deborah Benjamin The Death of Perry Many Paws is the first in a series of cozy humorous mysteries featuring 'women of a certain age' and a small town filled with people you want to visit again and again. It has a five star rating on Amazon. It's available on Kindle also. It's a definitive cozy mystery.


message 5: by Sandy (new)

Sandy Bose I'd add Larissa Reinhart too. Love her Cherry Tucker series.


message 6: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca gaah it annoys me that a Janet Evanovich book is number one on this list. I get that they're popular BUT people so often vote for books because they like them, and not because they actually are the best fit for the list description! The thing is people who are looking at the list want to read books that fit the description.

Anyways - if the definition of cozy mystery is the same as the one on the website referenced (http://www.cozy-mystery.com/Definitio...), then "no graphic violence, no profanity, and no explicit sex." There definitely is graphic violence in the Stephanie Plum books, and the romance is pretty explicit. I would say her books are more about thrill, humor, and sex than about a cozy mystery! (It's maybe more of a humorous mystery...)

Basically, I hadn't quite found a description for the books that I really like to read until just now, and Cozy Mystery is definitely it! So I was excited to find this list...and then disappointed to see Stephanie Plum right at the top because that is definitely NOT what I'm looking for, personally!


message 7: by Kathey (new)

Kathey The Connie Shelton series are great Cozy mysteries. Both Charlie Parker and Samantha Sweet are interesting and they have been getting better and better through the years.

Though I really love the Stephanie Plum books I have to agree with you. I mostly listen to the audio editions of those book and often find myself cringing at the cursing and skipping ahead to avoid the sexual talk. They are not cozy mysteries at all.


message 9: by Kathey (new)

Kathey I agree that this is not the listing I would hope for so I guess I'll have to start posting to it rather than to Amazon Kindle listings. Since Cozies are by nature series books, perhaps it would be better to list only the series name. That would leave room to include a wider selection of books. There are great cozy series not mentioned. I do agree that Stephanie Plum, while well written is not a cozy.


message 10: by Lori (new)

Lori On the top of the list pictured, there is a tab to add other books that you don't see on the list. I added my favorites and when other reader's saw the books on there, they moved up through the ranks.


message 11: by Booklovinglady (new)

Booklovinglady Someone added Shakespeare's Hamlet (#1048). Odd choice, if you ask me...


message 12: by Sorento62 (new)

Sorento62 That IS funny about Hamlet. LOL

and this is the truth..... No offense but yeah, this is the truth


message 14: by Edie (new)

Edie I would add "Fool's Puzzle" by Earlene Fowler, "Caught Dead in Philadelphia" by Gillian Roberts, "Board Stiff" by Kendel Lynn, "Frontpage Fatality" by LynDee Walker "Murder 101" by Maggie Barbieri and Diners, Dives, and Dead Ends by Terri Austin
