I dont know if there is a "correct definition". For me, a "cozy"  mystery takes place in a small town with likeable people, someone you wouldn't mind having as a neighbor. "Cozies" don't involve alot of gory details or explicit adult situations. Some "cozy" authors I have read are M.C.Beaton, Tamar Myers, and Mary Daheim. Check out www.cozy-mystery.com
