I have seen a couple of posts that refer to a cozy series but I don't know what a cozy series is.  Could someone please let me know what exactly they are?

If it is what I am thinking of then I have one in mind that I absolutely LOVE!

Thanks for any input!

They are usually fun, light hearted mysteries, where the main character is an amateur sleuth. They generally have little violence or sex and have a happy ending.

Thank you, Jenny!  I thought that was it and it describes exactly the series of books that I read.  "The Cat Who" books by Lilian Jackson Braun...
