Cozy Mystery Challenge 2010

I’ve completed the Cozy Mystery Challenge.

A  cozy mystery is a mystery that doesn’t normally have any rough language, sex scenes, or gruesome details about the killing, and the main character is normally an amateur detective.

The challenge: read at least  least 6 cozy mysteries between April 1st, 2010 and September 30, 2010. 

I read:

  1. Faithful Unto Death by Caroline Graham – finished April
  2. Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House by M C Beaton – finished May
  3. Revenge Served Cold by Jackie Fullerton – finished May
  4. Snapped in Cornwall by Janie Bolitho- finished May
  5. Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie – finished July
  6. The Body on the Beach by Simon Brett – finished July
  • Most enjoyable: Death on the Nile.
  • The spookiest and most querky: Revenge Served Cold
  • The most frivolous: Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House
  • Cosiest: The Body on the Beach.

  1. Well done on finishing another challenge. How interesting that Simon Brett was the cosiest, I’ve never read any of his yet I do like a cosy mystery from time to time. Might have to check one out for those times when light reading is all I’m after


  2. Margaret – Well done! I’m glad that you enjoyed Death on the Nile as much as you did, too : ). I’m also glad you included some Simon Brett. I haven’t read that one, but I like his Charles Paris series.


  3. Congratulations on finishing the challenge!

    I think I may have to try Simon Brett.

    NB: I like your blog very much, but when I comment, I miss the feature ´notify me by email….´ I quite like following discussions of blog posts, but when I don´t get email notification, I usually forget to go back and check if something interesting is going on.


  4. Congratulations on completing your challenge. You are way ahead of me but that’s okay. I’ll catch up. I like the way you picked your favorites at the end.
