Ever wanted to read a cozy mystery but you don’t know where to start? Well, I have the perfect list for you! Below you will find my “Cozy Mystery Starter Pack”. I’ve divided the books by category/themes (paranormal, culinary, etc.) and have a little something for everyone! I hope you enjoy this list. It’s been a while since I’ve written one up and I’m so glad to be writing another one!
PS: The books listed here are the FIRST books in the series! This will be helpful for those looking for a new series to try and want to start with the first book (which I recommend for nearly every book in the genre). Read the books in order!
CULINARY COZY MYSTERY STARTERS
Culinary cozy mysteries are cozy mysteries where food plays a major role in the plot. Sometimes you'll even see that the food happens to be an item found at a crime scene! Many of the sleuths we see in these stories are either bakery owners, or restaurant owners! They even have some amazing recipes for readers to try. These types of cozies are definitely my favorite as you can see by the list I have here. I highly recommend all of them within this list.
JUST PLAIN SLEUTHING
"Just Plain Sleuthing" features your average heroines who consistently find themselves involved with murder investigations. They can be moms, grandmothers, or really anyone! They don't fit into specific categories like the culinary or hobby themes.
PARANORMAL COZY MYSTERIES
Paranormal cozy mysteries often feature witches, but there are a few that have other types of paranormal beings too.
