A while ago, Terri asked me to post a Realtor themed entry:
… Could you do a list of cozies with professions of Realtors (as this series is) or Real Estate Appraisers (“Appraisal for Murder” by Elaine Orr, series Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries)- or maybe a combined list? Kathleen Delaney’s “Ellen McKenzie mysteries” would also fit. …
I keep a list of possible themes which I try to add to whenever I start the posting process for a new-to-the-site author, so I already had the theme going. So, the realtor sleuth theme now will join some of the many themes I have on my site such as Librarians Sleuths in Cozies, Culinary Cozies with Recipes, Cozies with Cats, etc.
Realtor Sleuths in Cozy Mysteries:
