My late great-nephew took it upon himself to send my MIL a fruit and vegetable box...to a woman who eats very little of either. The Rainbow Chard above was so striking, I had to take a picture of it. I love Swiss chard, so I am hoping this has a similar taste!
These are in no particular order, and I am sadly behind on most of these series, but the ones I've read, I've enjoyed immensely! Sadly, several of the authors are no longer with us, but in a couple of cases their offspring have continued the series. I realize that some of the series may not "technically" cozy mysteries, but for me, they aren't the gritty and intense mysteries that I have also enjoyed...
Amazingly enough, I wasn't enamored with the heroine (who occasionally frustrated me!) but I LOVED the idea of the ghost communicating by writing in the diary.
I'm hopelessly inept at sewing, so I am always in awe of those who have the patience and expertise to do these works of art. Each of these titles has a different quilt on the cover, which fascinated me, plus I loved the stories.
Florida, pets, hunky brother and his even hunkier partner, what more could I ask for?
Yes, I love stories with talking animals, and the snarky conversations between these fur-purrsons always entertained me!
Now that I think of it, perhaps I should have done a Saturday Seven with the animal mystery series I loved, lol.
These have an interesting mystical twist (as if one needs even more than a cat who calls the Chief of Police on a cell phone, lol)
I was so sad when this series was discontinued, as I thought it was a very unique one that explored the idea of AI (artificial intelligence).
And a bonus...
There are several more that I could name, but the most recent in the series is fresh in my mind since I just reviewed Lethal in Old Lace, I will end with this fun series that is set in Savannah! My review is at this link.
Please note that I have just included a title or two from the series, not necessarily the first one...or in order, and they may require a treasure hunt through used bookstores or library sales to find, but I found all of them a lot of fun. I hope you give one or two a try and let me know what you think!
