I have something to confess. I. Love. Mysteries. Not only do I write them, but I
read them. Um, a lot of them. Not only do I nibble at their pages, but I consume
them nightly on television. Why?
There's just something about the familiar characters, the sleuth and his
sidekick or the detective sergeant and her trusty partner, that draws me in. I
laugh at their silly jokes, bite my nails when they blunder into danger, and
breathe a sigh of relief when they make it back safely to their apartment,
cottage, or vicarage. The piece de la resistance is solving the mystery before
my favorite detectives figure it out. Like chocolate cake, it melts in my mouth
and makes my heart sing.
What about you? Do you require your mysteries to be all sewn up by the end of
the hour, chapter, season, or even—gulp--the end of the series? Regardless of
your palate, this week's cozy mystery new releases will help to satiate your
love of solving mysteries, fighting crime, and sending those criminals where
they belong, behind bars.
