Cozy Mystery/Crime Book Discussion

Post by hsimone » 06 Mar 2019, 19:10

Welcome to March's genre discussion! This month we are going to share books that fall under the crime and/or cozy mystery genres. So what are these genres?
  • Crime: It's a genre that presents crimes, the investigation to the crimes, criminals, and their motives in a fictional way. Most times, suspense and mystery are woven into the book's plot.

  • Cozy mystery: This is a subgenre of crime, where sex and violence are toned down or presented in a light/humorous manner. The crime at hand is usually taken place in a small intimate community. These books are considered to be "fun reads" and usually features an amateur sleuth.
What are you reading/have read for this month? Were there any other genres or subgenres featured in that book? Can you share your rating and if would you recommend it?

I've read a few books by Kathy Reichs in the past. My sister is a HUGE fan of hers. I thought they were good but I personally prefer historical fiction. But, if you enjoy crime books, I would recommend her.

I was 8 when I read my first Nancy Drew and was hooked. In high school I read most of the Sherlock Holmes stories which I still love reading on a rainy day. I think a good 'cozy mystery' has to have a lovable sleuth, a creative crime, and a satisfying conclusion. Gotta love books like this! I wish I had more rainy days here (:
