I have been a fan of cozy mysteries for a long time. I started with Agatha Christie’s Poirot and Miss Marple and went from there. I don’t know if this exactly fits the bill, but I loved Dorothy Gilman’s Mrs. Pollifax series. Her adventurous attitude and deadpan humor had me hooked.
Then I moved into the more lighthearted stuff like Joanne Fluke’s Hannah Swenson and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum. I also like the foodie type mysteries like Diane Mott Davidson’s Goldy and Susan Wittig Albert’s series on herbs.
I’m also a fan of TV shows based on cozy mysteries like Murdoch Mysteries (currently watching), Miss Fischer’s Murder Mysteries and of course the classic Poirot and Miss Marple.
I’m currently listening to a Harper Lin series based on a latte shop owner, a Chris Ewan series called The Good Thief’s Guide to [place], and Juliet Blackwell’s series on Annie Kincaid, an art restoration expert with a tendency toward forgery.
What are some of your favorite cozy mysteries? Or even cozy mystery genres since there are so many at this point?
