For cozy and mystery readers, you’ll find a little more to love in this list! Some will come as no surprise; you’ve heard me rave about them before. Feel free to add your opinions in the comments section!
No One to Trust by Julie Moffett – cozy mystery; You’ve heard me mention this one before and here it is again in my best of list! For fun and funny–a wild and zany ride, good plotting and some over the top moments!
Honorable mention: Calamity Jayne – Cozy mystery. This one was a little too zany to get my whole-hearted recommendation, but there’s a lot to love about it too. Plus the whole series is so reasonably priced, how can you go wrong? The first book, Calamity Jayne just happens to be free. Or, for an almost better deal, you can get all SIX books for 9.99 in the Kindle boxed set!
Buying Time by Kelly Cochran gets an honorable mention as well. It was going along really well, but in the end, I thought the plot sagged a bit, so it doesn’t quite make 5 stars, but for $2.99, the series is worth a read.
Illegal Magic by Arlene Blakely is a very good cozy, but it does have magical elements and I know not all of y’all like that in a Cozy. It was a pretty darn good “beach read.”
Driving Mr. Dead by Molly Harper – Romance – I don’t like vamps as a love interest, but this was so funny and fun, I managed to overlook the whole dead thing. I love a heroine who doesn’t give up on herself despite accidents, life and flaws. This was a good cozy romance, despite a vamp being the main character. I enjoyed it a lot.
Short Stories and Novellas
Saving the Sammi – Frank Tuttle – Yes, yes, you know I’m a big fan. This was still the best short story I read all year.
