One of the first attractions, for me, to Cozy Mysteries was the book covers. They’re often artsy and comedic at the same time. We’ve all heard the saying about not judging a book by its cover, but how can you resist picking up something that screams, “I’m entertaining!” On the flipside, I’ve also bypassed what may be perfectly good Cozy reads because the cover didn’t catch my eye.
Below I’m sharing some book covers that caught my attention recently. I haven’t actually read any of them as yet, just thought the covers were cute.
I love coffee and cupcakes. In fact, I help my father sometimes with his little espresso bar. This cover reeled me in pretty easily for that simple fact.
Aww…. do you see the little Yorkie stretching up and peeking out? Or are you more taken with the perfect picture window?
Great mansion: check. Lush landscape: check. Night sky with full moon: check. Looks a bit isolated: check. Perfect mystery setting laid.
I was a big fan of Silk Stalkings in the 1990s. I still think Rob Estes is cute. The cheerful colours, artfully displayed garments and peeking kitties piqued my interest in this one (not just the Rob Estes memory jog).
This one just made me laugh. If my mug shot would look like that, I wouldn’t mind at all.
So, what do you think? Please share some favourite Cozy covers of your own. And if you’ve read any of these books, let me know if you enjoyed them.
