Christina/ The Blog for Teachers, Readers, & Life! I would say Historical Mystery. I would agree with Gretchen Smith. Themes are too morbid, there are not many lighthearted parts that you see in a typical cozy mystery. Also, many of the issues are too taboo for the cozy mysteries.
Gretchen Smith Definitely Historical Mystery. The ending and actual crime are a little too dark for a cozy mystery. It is, however, a great read for rainy evenings with a cozy blanket and some tea!
Krista I'd consider this to be a Historical Mystery. I don't think it falls in the genre of Cozy Mystery because of the prominent involvement of a police officer throughout the story.
