Craving For Cozies Challenge 2016

Linda at Chatting About Cozies asked me to take over this challenge this year and I am thrilled to do so. The name may be different but the theme is the same –
How many cozy mysteries YOU can read this year!!? 

Craving For Cozies Challenge 2016


NEWS – I have set up a group on Facebook so everyone can share and discuss the cozies we are reading. Just click here to join. 

Cozy mysteries, also referred to simply as “cozies”, are a sub-genre of crime fiction mysteries in which sex and violence are downplayed or treated humorously, and the crime and detection take place in a small, socially intimate community. The crime solver is an amateur sleuth, usually but not always a woman, who is thrust into the aftermath of the murder. The protagonist frequently has an occupation or hobby that brings appealing information to the reader.

The challenge runs from January 1, 2016 and ends December 31, 2016
