I was wondering if anyone could suggest some good anthologies of short stories that are cozy mysteries? Sometimes a short story just "fits" my time and energy at the end of the day... and there are only so many times I can read Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie!

 Hey, Leslie!

   Check out Sisters in Crime.  It is a series of mystery anthologies that I've really enjoyed.  There is another series called Malice Domestic that you may like, as well.   I just typed in both of those in search and came up with quite a few available :)

I agree with Kim, both SISTERS IN CRIME and MALICE DOMESTIC are great cozy short story mysteries.  If you enjoy "Agatha Christie type" mysteries, I highly recommend CLASSIC ENGLISH CRIMES.   It is a collection of 13 short stories, set in England between 1920's and 1950's, written by different authors in the "Christie" style.  Great fun!
