If you follow my blog at all, you know I am a cozy mystery lover. I do enjoy a good amateur sleuth, the characters and settings of these stories. This year I also found a couple to match up with my seasonal reading in both Autumn and Christmas books. If you are looking for a good cozy to pick up, see if any of these strike your fancy.

Poppy McAllister Mysteries: Wine Tastings Are Murder, Beauty Expos are Murder #AudiobookReview @LibbyKleinBooks @TantorAudio

Recently, I have worked my way through this series, finishing up with books #5 and #6. I find this an enjoyable cozy mystery series with great characters and a lot of humour. I listened to several of them on audio, but also enjoyed reading a few of them and recommend either method to enjoy them. Callie Beaulieu narrates this series and I enjoy her pleasant voice. She does not do voices as she reads these stories, but her voice is great to listen to, her inflection and expression is right on. I always enjoy listening to audiobooks narrated by this wonderful voice actress.
