“Cozy” mysteries are one of the most popular genres in the Aurora Public Library District. Cozies are perfect for light summer reading and for long, cold winter nights. If you’re not familiar with the cozy genre, these books are the “gentle reads” of the mystery titles – no gore or graphic content. The crime is typically solved by an amateur detective who happens to stumble across a dead body from time to time, and the setting is often a small, quaint village. Each series may have a large number of books; however, even the best of series eventually come to an end. That’s why we’re always on the lookout for new series of Cozies. Here are the newest additions to our cozy collection – the first books in brand-new series.
The Library District has lots of ongoing series of cozies featuring themes like cooking, bookshops, pets, or even chocolate! Just jump in and see which authors you enjoy. There are great resources online about this genre, so don’t forget that we can also borrow from other libraries, if you find a series we don’t have. Here’s a great website to check out if you want to see the amazing variety of books in this gentle category: Cozy Mystery List
