Cozy Mystery Spotlights and Interviews
It's springtime! Although many of us are not feeling the effects yet, we can
benefit from all of the hard work mystery authors did while hibernating with
their computers over the winter. This week I have four great cozies for you to
check out. Magic by the sea with cupcakes at a festival—it doesn't get any
better than that!
One of the great thing about cozy mysteries are the recipes! Everyone loves to
delve into the scrumptious foods authors describe in their books, and Rebecca
Adler has some of the best Tex-Mex recipes out there. After reading her latest
book CINCO DE MURDER, I
had to ask her for a taste of Texas. To my delight, and soon to be yours too,

A Review of S.T.A.G.S. by M.A. Bennett
S.T.A.G.S. by M.A. Bennett, is a
fast-paced mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to know more. The
story starts Read More...
This week I'm featuring four new mysteries you can't pass up. These four authors
have supplied a variety of different types of mysteries to choose from—like the
delicious cooking whodunit's of Joanne Fluke, or the sweet teas twisters of
Laura Childs. Perhaps you're in the mood for Anna Lee Huber's historical
cliffhangers, or the sassy sleuths of Erin Huss. You really cant go wrong with
these mysteries; there's Read More...
A Review by Kym and Gidget
Today's blog was a special treat for me. I read the book along with a young
reader, and then we sat down and wrote our reviews. This was her very first
review, and I have to say, I think Gidget has a knack for the craft. Much more
so than I do.
A well-written review has insight into the reader's mind—its audience. The Read More...
The first week of February is always cold. Even in Texas, we're in the thirties
and I have to say, the temperature is the one number I want to see move
upward this month. Not the ugly bathroom scale number. Not the ridiculous prices
at the grocery store. And certainly not the eye-popping numbers on my eye glass
prescription. Those are bad numbers, but I do have a good number for Read More...
The new year is always filled with fresh prospects, new beginnings and hope for
a better tomorrow. Yet sometimes, you just want to hang onto what made you
comfortable last year. The time-tested and proven.
As a mystery reader, its no different. Your favorite sleuths hold a special
place in your heart you aren't about to give up. And why should you? Yet you
still can't resist the shiny and new cozy Read More...
It's hard to pick the best mysteries of the past year, especially when I'm
limited on space. I don't feature a book I don't love, so if you've seen it on
the Cozy Corner, you
know I adored it. Yet each year I torture myself by trying to list the best
mysteries, and considering I never come close to reading Read More...
The rat race has begun! For many, the menorah is lit. Or the tree is decorated.
The lights are hung. The list is complete. (Until they add to it again.) The
shopping has started—on and off-line. The weather is cooperating. Sorta. And the
parties are out of control!
But all you want to do is relax. So here’s a few cozies to help you do just
You know it's going to happen. You're going to need to escape. Because on
Thursday afternoon, Uncle Bill will be deep in the eggnog—except he won't be
drinking the same eggnog everyone else will be enjoying. Uncle Bill's special
blend will come from the flask in his pocket, and the more he drinks, the louder
his political jokes will get.
If he was the only one you had to worry Read More...
The week of Readers & ritas is always a busy one in North Texas. Games to
prepare, baskets to put together, and the dreaded hunts through closets for
clothes that still fit. To top that off, I have edits to complete—Yikes!
Needless to say, my thoughts are racing at night and going to sleep can be a chore.
To relax and get my mind off my to-do list, I’ve decided to turn Read More...
The cozy temps of fall are just starting to reach Texas, bringing with them one
of my guilty pleasures—snuggling up with a fuzzy blanket and a good mystery in
front of the fire pit in my back yard. The thought of sitting in my comfy lounge
chair with the fresh scent of a fire wafting through the air has allured me away
from my desk the last couple nights. Once the fire was lit Read More...
