Thrifty Thursday: Cozy mystery books


A couple of years ago, I was given a gift of a book in a new series called "The Bookmobile Cat" mysteries.  I had no idea what "cozy mysteries" were before this. Here is a definition:
    Cozy mysteries, also referred to simply as "cozies", are a subgenre of crime fiction in which sex and violence are downplayed or treated humorously, and the crime and detection take place in a small, socially intimate community.
    I've read a few books from other series and have enjoyed them. I recently found four books in a series about a coffee shop in a thrift store!

Fun. I haven't tried these, but there was a series of dog-related ones set in the fudge shops of Mackinac Island that I downloaded from the library a while back.

I haven't paid much attention to these, but my interest is piqued now. Sounds like a fun way to relax

There are a lot of cat mysteries out there- I wish I had time to read them all.

They sound lovely

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
