Craving for Cozies 2017 Reading Challenge

 Craving for Cozies 2017 Reading Challenge

This challenge is hosted by Lori at Escape with Dollycas.

Feed Your Need to Read Cozy Mysteries!

from Escape with Dollycas

Cozy mysteries, also referred to simply as “cozies”, are a sub-genre of crime fictionmysteries in which sex and violence are downplayed or treated humorously, and the crime and detection take place in a small, socially intimate community. The crime solver is an amateur sleuth, usually but not always a woman, who is thrust into the aftermath of the murder. The protagonist frequently has an occupation or hobby that brings appealing information to the reader.

The challenge runs from January 1, 2017 and ends December 31, 2017
