Homicide in Hardcover - Kate Carlisle

In looking over my TBR list, I realized there are quite a few solid oldie (well not THAT old)  but goodie cozy series I need to start or catch up on. So aside from the new Hat Shop Mystery coming out in two weeks (so excited, it's my favorite cozy series! ), for the time being I'm going to concentrate on putting a dent in this list.  I usually have a cozy and another book going at the same time, the cozy being the lighter option to a more serious read.


I'm going to start with this one. This one seems to be a favorite of many. So far, so good! I like Brooklyn, her friend Robin and her quirky parents. The writing is easy to get absorbed in which is a good sign.
