Tari (thann) | 28 comments I'm jumping in at Level 4 since all I read are cozies anyway. I think that Option B sounds fun so I'll just keep editing as I go. Good luck to everyone! (Thank you to Jane Reads for letting me use your template!)

Level four (Sleuth Extraordinaire) -
A)Read 40 cozy mysteries of your choice.
B)Read two books from each sub-genre in level one plus an additional 20 cozy books of your choice (total of 40 books)

Anything with a pet in it and the Cat Latimer series is really good too! I can't really name favorites cause I have so many so I just go with favorite themes I guess. The cooking, food and crafty type cozies are fun too!

The Cat Latimer series is a new one to me--I'm adding it to my to-read shelf--thanks!

You're welcome, Donna! I do love that series. If you get busy reading it, you can probably get the first three read before the new one comes out, thinking in November.

Lena H. | 85 comments Have you read Krista Davis's series with the pet-friendly town, she works in a hotel with all kinds of dogs and cats. I love that one! Pet and craft are probably my favorite, I like food and cooking ones too but I gravitate to anything with a dog or a cat on the cover.

Yep a dog or cat on the cover is my weakness. A story without a pet might be a good mystery, but it doesn't seem complete.
