Am I the only one who loves this genre? I liken them to the book version of Diagnosis Murder! If so who are your favourite authors/ series? Any recommendations?

I do! i favor any of them set in the middle ages.

No names right now. I am tucked up on the sofa with a sore throat and the bookshelf is too far away to read! But I want the thread to get noticed!

Agata Raisin.
Agatha Christie.
Mary Stewart.

These are all rainy day cosy mysteries. Hoping for some good recommendations on this thread. Love cosy mysteries.

Also a big fan of mystery,do you know dorothy simpson, i think its inspector thanet, might be set in kent, written in the 80s.
Also ngaio marsh, a writer from new zealand, written in the 50s, some set in london, often based around theatre.

The Daisy Dalrymple [sp] series, can' t remember the author and the Alan Bradley Flavie de Luce (?) Series .

Obviously anything by agatha Christie.

I think I am at the more lightweight end of cosy mysteries blush. I read mainly American authors on my Kindle. When I can be bothered to move on my sofa, I will write some of my favourites.

Though I love the Robert Galbraith books. Would highly recommend those.

Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache mysteries. Set in the small French Canadian village of Three Pines. The detectives spend a lot of time in the cosy local bistro eating delicious food. Nothing gory. Nice cosy crime.
