Just got started reading more Cozy mystery series and not such heavy series.

Does anybody have some books - in a good story line - that they would like to recommend and make some deals on.

Note - I have already done the PLUM series.

I know there is so much out there - and you might be cleaning out but highly recommend a series or 2 - and get a good deal out of it.

Please PM me or email at cpacomic@hotmail.com

I have 4 of the Kay Scarpetta series from Patricia Cornwell and I would do 2 for 1 if you are interested.

Thanks so much for answering.  I have all of Kay's - I think. I enjoy her books. 

Now - I really looking for the smaller - less serious mysteries - like the Stephanie Plum series - or ones that are paper back series that can be read in a day or 2 and don't require much mental exercise.    Kay is good - but she is heavy duty mystery. 

Thanks again though.

I have an assortment of different things on my shelf.  I think some are Cozy Mysteries.   I'll offer you a 2 for 1 deal, if you are interested in anything on my shelf.    PM if you find something.

I don't have any posted right now since they're travelling through my family but the Bubbles series by Sarah Strohmeyer are great!

I highly recommend Selma Eichler.  There are some of her books available on PBS currently and she is very much a true cozy author.

Hi!

 

I have classic cozy mysteries, such as Agatha Christie and Patricia Wentworth on my list.  I highly recommend both authors.  I guess everyone knows Agatha Christie, but Wentworth was also a popular mystery writer from the same time period.  All of her books take place in England either during WWII or just after.  There is always a murder, a little romance,  and a knitting governess, Miss Silver, who helps Scotland Yard solve the case.  A little like Miss Marple.

If you are interested, I would be more than happy to give you a 2 for 1 on her books.  Just order one, and PM me with the other!

Susan,

I have a book on my shelf that I think you would like if you enjoyed Stephanie Plum.  It's called "Bonita Faye" by Margaret Moseley.  It's not part of a series.  But you will fall in love with Bonita Faye!!  I was so surprised when this book turned out to be so rich. 

I have some other cozies too; check out my shelf...I'd be happy to deal!
