Ellery's Cozy Mystery Contest

Hosted By Ellery Adams

Happy New Year from the Cozy Chicks (including our newest Chicks, MJ Maffini and Mary Kennedy)

It's the first of the month! From now on, the 1st means cozies and contests (and a chance to win an e-gift card for $10 to the bookstore of your choice).

This is how it works: I post a few lines from a cozy mystery. You post the title and author in the comment section. If you can't figure out the title, I'll count your answer as being correct if you can pinpoint the author. Then, I'll draw a random name from the winning guesses and post that person's name on Facebook on the 7th of each month.

And remember, we still have Dru's Cozy Report on the 15th of each month. Boy, 2014 is going to rock!

Okay, here we go! Here are the lines from your first mystery cozy:

"Instead, I was tucked into my cozy kitchen on Cranberry Island, Maine, with my ginger cat, Biscuit, napping on the wood stove and a scene from Currier and Ives framed by my frosted window. Life as an innkeeper wasn't all coffeecakes and walks on the beach…"

Ellery's helpful hint - There's an artist's easel on the cover. Good Luck!

No idea, but it sounds like a series I should look into! (Truthfully, I guess I need to amend that....I do now have an idea after reading all the previous comments!) I guess this should be a new series for me to add to my 2014 Wish List!

Brush with Death by Karen MacInerney - I need to add this book to my goodreads list. I did not know the answer, just copied what I read above. Maybe, there is a way to keep answers hidden so we don't cheat. Hopefully, next month I will really know the answer since I have read many of all of your cozies. Happy New Year!
