Angie Boyter This list is a great idea, but since you are ocd about the reading I imagine you do not want anything but FIRST books in the series on this list. Flavia DeLuce #2 and #3 are on it. Was this a mistake? (And if you want the BEST of that series, it was #4!)


message 2: by Kim (new)

Kim A lot of these weren't cozy mysteries, the first of a series, or even a series.


message 3: by Ruth (new)

Ruth E. R. These are definitely not all Cozy Mysteries. And it's really silly for anyone to add books that are not #1's! I think perhaps the originator of the list should define "Cozy Mystery," and whether or not she wants it to be "adult" or to include YA and juvenile books.


message 4: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Richardson It doesn't read "first book of cozy mysteries". It reads "first books of cozy series". It also says to feel free to add books. I don't think people are really reading what is says. People are assuming they are all mysteries and are adding books that are not the first in the series. I think perhaps the point of this list was to give people a good "first read". Yes?


message 5: by Juanita (new)

Juanita I agree with Melissa - this is a wonderful list to explore other cozy mystery series that you are not aware of. Some suggestions................


message 6: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn love love this list


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

There is also a very similar list here: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/7...


message 8: by Sandra (new)

Sandra Holladay As much as I love Mary Higgins Clark's books, they are not cozy nor a series and I see several of her books on this list.


message 9: by Kirsten (new)

Kirsten Sue Grafton cozy, really? Also, just because a book is a historical mystery (ex; Maisie Dobbs), that does NOT make it a cozy.
