Recommended Reading 101: Cozy Mystery

Posted January 14, 2017 by Bonnie in Recommended Reading 101 / 3 Comments

Taking classes and getting excited for the assigned reading was always my favorite part of school. Using that same concept and turning different genres, locations, and subjects into a course of their own, you could come up with your own assigned reading. These would be my picks for recommended reading, what would yours be?

Cozy Mystery 101

7558193If you’re looking something humorous and light-hearted…

Lucky O’Toole is head of Customer Relations at the Babylon, Las Vegas’ newest and largest ‘mega-casino’ and as you can only imagine, all kinds of craziness happens. While the crimes are often serious, there’s an airy feel to Wanna Get Lucky? and a comedic element that will keep you entertained.


If you’re looking for something with some historical significance…

Constance is not a regular lady since most ladies in the early 1900s wouldn’t choose to carry a gun and patrol the streets alongside men. She’s a fascinating woman, but what’s even more fascinating is the fact that her story is based off a true story: Constance Kopp is credited as being one of America’s first female deputy sheriffs.

In the basement of the Holy Heart church, a group of monstrous individuals (consisting of a werewolf, a mummy, a Frankenstein creation, etc.) hold support groups as they struggle with life among humans. Club Monstrosity is the first of (unfortunately) just two stories but they’re both plenty entertaining.

    • They’re quite interesting and less mystery and more historical really.

      Nope… that author has moved on to doing nothing but historical romances for the past several years. I think I read something about low sales on her Monstrosity series and I know Orbit dropped her Married with Zombies series… I’ll have to try her historical romance I guess.
