9 feelings cozy mystery readers can totally relate to

Readers of cozy mysteries are seriously into their chosen genre. You know who you are, but if there is any doubt, see if you can relate to these feelings.

When you have a scene in your mind and then you read more details that totally contradict the layout in your head.


When you can’t find that old favorite from the series that you KNOW you have somewhere.


When you watch a movie based on the book and everything is different


When you preorder the next book in your favorite series, then you realize it’s not going to arrive for 6 months.


When the killer is not at all who you expected.


When the small town detective asks the lead character to stop her amateur sleuthing, for her own safety.


When your two favorite characters finally get together as a couple.


When the killer is revealed, the main character is in danger, and you still don’t know why the killer did it.


When the characters in your books are more enticing that those in real life.

    Thanks for the big smiles. My sister and I are beginning to wonder if the last Amelia Peabody from the late Elizabeth Peters, delayed several times so far, Will be released in our lifetimes.

    The cat searching the shelves is the best if all. I can find any of my books Thousands) as long as no one moves them. Then, chaos

        Never mind, just realized it’s the pictures here.

        Cozy books are the best – easy reads, no violence, stories that keep my attention. I look forward to seeing what one of my characters is up to nect

    So true. Every picture put a smile on my face

    Very cute! You missed one, though, how about when somebody sees your cozy and says, oh, I just read that. I couldn’t believe (x) did it. Hopefully you were not in the process of polishing your shotgun at that moment. If I knew how to send a picture I’d show you how hair raising that comment csan be!

  12. I couldn’t refrain from commenting. Exceptionally well written!

    Number 3 and 4 are me. Especially number three. I had an arthur I loved, along with the characters, until the movie came out. The film didn’t match the book. The characters were so completely different. The arthur has done this to two of his books and characters. I rarely read his books now.

      I hate when the actors don’t fit the description of characters in the book.

    Loved the remarks and videos – Especially the cat taking the books from the shelves and the little one looking at the book! So cute. I don’t have many hardback/paperbacks anymore. When my dh got me my first Kindle it was with the agreement (or I should say – admonishment) “No more books that I can trip over, or falling on my head! ” It didn’t work completely…..I do still sneak a paperback (or win one) occasionally 🙂 Just not as many.

  15. Those were too funny and soooo true!
