Cozy Read & Tea Book Club

Cozy mysteries, also referred to as “cozies,” are a subgenre of crime fiction in which sex and violence are downplayed or treated humorously, and the crime and detection take place in a small, socially intimate community. Cozies thus stand in contrast to hardboiled fiction, which features violence and sexuality more explicitly and centrally to the plot. The term “cozy” was first coined in the late 20th century when various writers produced work in an attempt to re-create the Golden Age of Detective Fiction.

Let’s talk about our Cozy Mysteries, have some tea and cookies and exchange titles for future reads.

Intended for Adults.
