Has anyone read these before ? I been thinking about reading them but don't know about them. I don't want to waste money to get them if they arent good.
I enjoy them. They're lightweight, not serious. They're kind of "chick lit" mysteries.
cosy is the term I believe.
They are readable in small doses - like all of the wine/food/coffee/whatever mysteries :)
Pick up one - if you like it and want to read more of that - get the rest.
They are definitely cozies, Annie, but they even have a more "chick lit" sensibility, in my opinion. That is, while I know some guys who read, say, Donna Andrews' cozies, they wouldn't read the Flower Shop mysteries. It verges slightly into the romance field and there's sort of a madcapness to them, too.
I totally agree. Try one.
Oh, I know - the cozy field got too crowded lately - and that brought variety.
These are the "popcorn" of the genre. I find them relaxing -- all different kind of them. What is funny is that I cannot read chick lit usually - I've tried... it's boring. But these work somehow.
If a series name is about food/wine/coffee/bookstore/whatever - it is usually on the lighter side
Series named after the protagonist are usually more diverse and more on the serious side
At least in most cases :)
This is why I love my public library - costs nothing to try one out :) and if you like it they usually have more.
Thing that drives me craziest is the puns in the titles. Oy!
