Here are a few request for help from Cozy Mystery site readers. If you have any ideas for them, please post a comment.
Kayanna writes (regarding the Texas list of authors):
“I love these books from Texas, and I notice that books from the South (which may not include all of Texas, I’m not entirely clear on the concept!) seem to have a similar flavor and pride of place.
Do you already have a Southern list? I know it’s a state of mind! I’d love to find more books written from that perspective. They often write about small town values; respect, honoring parents, but they don’t take themselves too seriously. I’m thinking of Anne George and Patricia Sprinkle’s Southern series here, and some of the Texan authors exude that same charm. I’m rereading Anne George for the millionth time, but I’m looking for more like her!”
“I am reading my last Miss Silver mystery (I’ve collected them from local bookstores and Amazon and a British site). I have loved them! I need another good author. I am really interested in wholesome reading. Does not have to be a mystery, but well written. (I loved Green Dolphin Street.) I will check out your “cozy mystery” authors at the library. Any other suggestions? Thank you.”
“Could you recommend some cozies that really tickle the funnybone? I know most cozies have some humor but I really would love to read a series that gives me belly laughs. Please provide a list for me.”
If you have any ideas for books that you think fall into one of the above categories, please post a comment. And, thank you!
