Is it just me, or is anyone else sick of the business owner, friend, engaged in a romance or two blah blah blah, but she can't seem to find her ovaries and tell her mother to butt out, shut up, stop phone stalking me, etc., etc., etc.    Sure, you be kind, but for gosh sakes, stand up for your self.  I am DONE with those books and those characters.

I don't have a great tolerance for cozies either, they do get quite formulaic. You need to mix it up, throw some other stuff in the mix. Pick up something more challenging. It's like eating sweet stuff all day, you have to break it up with some meat.
