It sure is! Wasn't that a great book? It's funny how little things can really spark either a collection, a hobby...or a series!
I think that's one reason cozies (or cozyish mysteries, since some authors don't like that name) are so popular. No matter what your interests, there's bound to be a cozy series that features it!

Rochelle Staab is having trouble signing in so I'm going to go ahead and a link to her new book:
In Who Do, Voodoo?, mysterious tarot cards, a cursed voodoo spell book, and a best friend falsely accused team L.A. Clinical Psychologist Liz Cooper and Religious Philosophy Professor Nick Garfield in an unlikely partnership to hunt down the real killer of a voodoo initiate in contemporary Los Angeles.

Becke, I love your knomes! Do you keep any in the garden?
This is a dangerous forum this week. I've not read any of the cozies with a paranormal slant even though I'm a fan of paranormal romance and fantasy novels. I'm going to have to give some of these a try!
Yesterday I've been beating my head against the wall trying to figure out how I can make my killer more deliciously devious. I need lessons on deviousiness. Murderous deviousness, I mean. I'm quite adept at the run-of-the-mill kind of devious. And I need these lessons fast! This book (The Scarlet Pepper) was due last month!!!

becke_davis, I always wonder what a cozy mystery was and now I know. I think that any book could be a cozy because if you love to read and get cozy reading that book what more do you want.
I love to get into a book and just lose myself in the story. If the good makes you feel good that is even better.
You do such a great job.

I just finished A LONG QUICHE GOODBYE and I really enjoyed it. It made me hungry for all those cheeses mentioned in the book. I think everybody loves cheese. When Rachel Ray announces that she is adding cheese to her recipe, the audience always claps!
I will definitely be reading LOST AND FONDUE. I need to find out what's going on with Jordan and Charlotte. That's what so great about all the cozy mystery series, they keep you wanting more of the story!
Thanks for posting the covers. I'm thrilled to be among the authors and am open to answering any and all questions from readers!

Great to see you here!
Just wanted to drop a line to let you know that I have shared Honey and Babe at work and have actually got some great feedback. Everyone seems to like the hometown/homespun jargon!

Avery, I just finished reading Lost and Fondue, and loved it! . I see from your web site that you now have the cover for your third book. Could you tell us a bit about it?
Where are you as far as having the third book completed?
