Cozy Mystery #AudiobookReviews The Hour of Death, Death by Dostoevsky, Death by Chocolate Frosted Doughnut, There’s a Murder Afoot

I have been reading a lot of Historical Fiction that tends to be very serious and often leaves me feeling drained and sad. To offset this, I have also been listening to some cozy mysteries. They are light, fun and take my mind off the seriousness of the real world. The narrators of these books, Caroline Shaffer, Helen Lloyd, Susan Boyce, and Kim Hicks all did a nice job with their performance. All but Susan Boyce were new to me. I especially enjoyed Kim Hicks. She did a great job with the various accents and both male and female voices. I enjoyed all of these audiobooks, some more than the others.

Reading cozy mysteries is a great way to keep it light between dramas and historical fiction that sometimes end sadly. I need to smile and just have fun with a book. These three cozy mysteries did that for me. Two were audiobooks, which had wonderful narrators and the third was read. I recommend them all for those who enjoy a good cozy or those looking for a lighthearted story.

Cozy Mysteries, Mini-Reviews #AudiobookReviews

During December, I did a lot of reading/listening, but did not get a lot of my reviews posted. It is the end of 2020, and I am trying to remedy that. These are 2 cozy mystery novels and 2 novellas. All were enjoyable, but I always like the full length stories more than the novellas. I listened to the audiobook of each of them, even though at one time, I had been provided the ebook of each through Netgalley. All ratings and opinions shared are my own.
