Cozy Mysteries To Read This Holiday Season

Tuesday, December 1, 2020

As the holiday season approaches, we take time to decorate the house with shining lights, listen to festive music, and sip peppermint-flavored drinks. So, it makes perfect sense for that same merry-making to extend to the books we are reading as well!

Have you heard of Cozy Mysteries? If so, be sure to check out our booklist below and have fun picking your next holiday read. If not, let me introduce you to your new favorite genre of book, Cozy Mysteries. Think of these novels as the book version of a Hallmark movie. This particular collection of cozies are holiday-themed, much like the Hallmark holiday-themed movies they show this magical time of year. They usually involve an amateur sleuth solving a small-town murder. Even though these books typically take place in a picturesque town filled with charming characters, they pack in a flurry of mystery, holiday romance, family drama, and sometimes a yummy recipe (and a Christmas miracle too)! 

We’ve put together a booklist of Cozy Mysteries so good they are going to become part of your holiday traditions for years to come. Grab the eggnog, snuggle under your warmest blanket, and check out some of these cozy festive reads! Season's Readings!
