And that’s on top of having to juggle normal, everyday life complications. No wonder there are so many cozies focused on food. These detectives are famished!

Here are five food-themed cozy mysteries you can check out on your next trip to the library.

  1. The Country Cooking School Mysteries are a hoot. I need to go back to that series. I read the first few and loved them. Nice post Christopher, but I could add so many more series. 😄

    1. Oh, it was so hard to cap it at five, but I didn’t want to make an overwhelming post! Food and cozies. They just go together. I haven’t read The Country Cooking School Mysteries yet, but I have the first one waiting for me on my Kindle. I’ve got a soft spot for Missouri-based fiction, so I’m really looking forward to it. Glad to get an opinion I trust saying that it’s good!
