It seems that I’ve moved on from comfort food (only because I don’t live too near Panera’s and their mac n cheese) and into comfort reading.
gMarie got me hooked on cozy mystery series a while back with the Melanie Travis mysteries. From there, it’s been one series after another. (See the book review tab in my categories to the right…) Now, back to blogging Susan has me 6 ounces deep in the Wine Country series.
I have to pause and chew on calling my home “town” wine country. It’s horse country, thanks much. While I get calling where I currently reside on up through the setting for this series Virginia’s wine country, it was called horse country first and still is. Don’t get me wrong… I’m a proud supporter of Virgina wines (especially Horton!)
Anyway, Ms. Crosby did a great job of honoring the geography and landmarks, complete with a disclaimer for the noteworthy liberties she did take (but I promise, unless you’re intimate with the area, you’d never know…) I couldn’t put it down and read it in two evenings. I’ve already started the next in the series.
I still love nonfiction and other genres, but when life is a bit hectic, I find great comfort in a cozy mystery. They hook me quickly and hold my attention without demanding any great internal debate.
What are you reading these days?
