Can any of you recommend funny cozy mysteries? I love the Stephanie Plum series. I've read the Passport to Peril and Spellman Files also.

Liar, Liar by K. J. Larsen is the first book in the Cat DeLuca series, and is similar to the ones you mentioned. I really liked it.

Some of the most hilarious cozies I ever encountered were the Southern Sisters mysteries by Anne George. Unfortunately, George died in 2001.

1. Murder on A Girls' Night Out (1997)
2. Murder on A Bad Hair Day (1996)
3. Murder Runs in the Family (1997)
4. Murder Makes Waves (1997)
5. Murder Gets A Life (1998)
6. Murder Shoots the Bull (1999)
7. Murder Carries A Torch (2000)
8. Murder Boogies with Elvis (2001)

Deb Baker writes a series featuring Gertie Johnson and her cohorts. They're a group of seniors who are always out getting into trouble and are quite funny.

One of the cozy series that I find pretty funny is the "Cupcake Bakery" Mystery series by Jenn McKinlay. There are currently 5 books in this series

The first one is called "Sprinkle with Murder".    http://www.jennmckinlay.com/sprinkle_with_murder_80982.htm
