I don't think we've done these threads in a long time.  Here is how it works.  Post the book titles on your bookshelf that fit theme.  This thread is to highlight cozy mysteries only.

If you would like to offer a deal, please list it in your post.  However, offering a deal is not necessary.

Hopefully, this will help folks move a few books.
