Weekend Cooking: Cozy Culinary Mysteries

 

One of my guilty reading pleasures has always been cozy mysteries.

Cozy mysteries series are generally themed, and culinary/food themes are some of the most popular. Many of the books in a series include recipes, and whether you favour chocolate or chilli, dinner or dessert, you can find something tasty that will appeal.

Below are the covers of the first book in a variety of series, click to learn more.

 

 

Feel free to share your own favourite cozy mystery in the comments.

    I relabeled the mystery paperbacks at our library recently, and I had so much fun reading the titles and blurbs for these. So many food puns!

    I love some of these punny titles, and I do like a good cozy now and then! The food ones are kinda fun too. Ellery Adams is a favorite of mine, although not all hers are culinary themed. And Death by Dumpling looks great because anything related to Chinese food gets my attention!

    All these food covers make me hungry! I do like the odd cosy crime story, recently I have enjoyed T E Kinsey’s Lady Hardcastle series which is great on audio. I am also a big Christie fan, not sure if she qualifies as cosy crime though.

    *rubs hands in glee* Cosys are my guilty pleasure, and what I turn to when I was to feel re-invigorated about reading again — they’re such treats to pull me out of reading slumps. I love this post! And I just finished the second in the Hummus and Homicide series which is ❤

    I too love the punny titles. I really enjoy the Bakeshop Mystery series by Ellie Alexander set in Ashland, OR. The first title is Meet Your Baker but the titles get much punnier as they go along. 😉

    I love cozies for when I just want something easy in between emotional or heavy reads so I’m going to have to check some of these out!

    Thanks for sharing some of your favs, ShellyRae.
    I love reading paranormal cozy mysteries, Holly Bell’s Amanda Cadabra mysteries are quintessentially English, Angie Fox’s Southern Ghost Hunter series is wonderful but a bit spooky at times too and Victoria DeLuis’ Rune Witch Mysteries are adventurous.
