I keep reading about cozies on the boards and I was wondering if anyone could define cozy.  Is it a romance or any kind of novel that's fiction?  I'm not sure I have any.

I think of cozies as somewhat light-hearted mysteries. I've read a few of the Heartsong Mysteries, which are cozies, and they are mysteries with some humor and romance in them. Death on a Deadline by Christine Lynxwiler is good, as is In the Dead of Winter by Nancy Mehl. Both are the first books in a series. I'm new to reading the genre (if it is one) myself, and was happy to see that there are Christian books like this. Hope this helps.
