If so what did you think about them?   A bookstore had them on Clearance for 2.50 each.  Wondering if their worth it having never read or seen them before?

They're Heartsong Cozy mystery line. unfortunately they discontinued them due to low sales.  the ones that i have read I enjoyed, thought they were better than the Love Inspired Suspense series.

Barbour Publishing (publisher for Heartsong Mysteries) is now publishing Hometown Mysteries. I've read a few of both Heartsong Mysteries and Hometown Mysteries, and both series are cozy mysteries. I liked what I've read so far.

I read the Heartsong Mysteries and thought they were kind of corny. The ones I read at least. Maybe some of them are good. I also read Nipped In the Bud by Susan Sleeman and I didn't care for that one either. Thought it was corny. Maybe I am just too picky but I didn't care for it. I prefer the LI Suspense most fo the time.
