Cozy Mystery Spotlights and Interviews
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...
This week I had the pleasure of interviewing the author of A Magical Cat
Mystery series, Sofie Kelly. Her latest mystery, A TALE OF TWO KITTIES,
scratched my funny bone on the very first page and I had to get the scoop on her
adorable felines. I know Read More...
This week I’m featuring three cozies that caught my attention with their titles.
I love a good, quirky title. To be specific, one that can make me smile or
release an inner snicker at the puniful twist the author used. Not only does it
give a good sense of what the book is about, but it also gives the reader a
taste of the author’s sense of humor. I dare you not to Read More...
It’s time to travel across the pond with author Alexia Gordon to the land of
shamrocks and leprechauns. Actually, we won’t be visiting any leprechauns, but
ghosts and symphonies are another story. Alexia’s fictional world may not be
magical, but her research and writing will happily engage cozy mystery readers
from beginning to end in her Gethsemane Brown Mystery
The best way to deal with the heat of summer is to find a place in the shade, or
the air conditioning;), and read an incredible mystery. Mysteries full of spunky
characters who act as spies, and everyday Janes who aren’t about to let the
wrong person be accused of murder. Read about a woman who loves her fiancee
beyond any claim to the thrown, and a woman who will do what it takes Read More...
Is it hotter than Hades everywhere? Sweltering heat that makes the pools feel
like bathwater, and the lakes a petrie dish for bacteria? We’ve had blistering
heat that won’t relent, so this week I decided to step into the shade and enjoy
what the shadows bring. I wanted to test the darkest corners and see
what little monsters I could find—embrace every deadly kiss
the Read More...

You don’t need to plan a vacation or a staycation this week. Take the week off
and relax from all the hubbub that has had you running around like a crazed mom
of quintuplet five year olds in a toy store. Pick up a book or two, or three—the
ones that have been stacking up in your to-be-read pile and just breathe. Escape
into another world where ghosts are real, magic Read More...
One of my favorite authors is sitting down in the Cozy Corner this week. Darcie
Wilde’s tales of regency England enthrall readers with layers of romantic
intrigue both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Her May release, A PURELY PRIVATE MATTER,
takes us on a journey that weaves Rosalind Thorne’s past with her
future, while she unravels the secrets behind the mysterious Read More...
