"Cozy" Mysteries

June 2013

Cozy mysteries, also referred to simply as "cozies," are a subgenre of crime fiction in which sex and violence are downplayed or treated humorously, and strong language is minimized. The crime and detection generally take place in a small, socially intimate community. The detectives in such stories are nearly always amateurs, and frequently women. They are typically well educated, intuitive, and often hold jobs (caterer, innkeeper, librarian, teacher, dog trainer, shop owner, reporter) that bring them into constant contact with other residents of their town.

Listed below are popular series for which the library has all or nearly all of the books in the series. Arrangement is by author. A brief description of the main character and the series is also provided.
DB is a Digital Book (DB books are also available for download on BARD)
RC is a Recorded Cassette Book
LP is a Large Print Book
BR is a Braille book
