What we're about

Join us in participating in picking nominees and vote for the Cozies and Coffee Readers Awards.

This group was created for Cozy Mystery Book Lovers. We meet the first Sunday of every month at 9:00am for cozy conversations and coffee. I created this group cause I love cozies and since I am a morning person, I would love to meet people for coffee and/or breakfast and talk about cozies. I would like to keep the books funny and light hearted. Just a fun read book. We will read cozies on paranormal, dogs, cats, foodies, antiques, crafts just to name a few. If you are a Cozy Mystery Book Lover you know what I am talking about. There will be two books chosen for each month. You can read one or both.

For more information about the Cozies and Coffee Readers Awards, please join us at our meetups.

Each month one lucky sleuth will win a free cozy mystery book or a giftcard at the meetup.

If you love cozies and coffee please join us.

The location of this meet up is in Garland / Richardson.

But when a bump on the head leaves her seeing not only stars but spirits, Alison realizes the real challenge she’s facing is out of this world. The two residing ghosts are Maxie Malone, the foul-tempered former owner of the house (who has definite opinions about Alison’s design plans), and Paul Harrison, a private eye who’d been working for Maxie—both died in the house on the same night. The official cause of death was suicide, but the ghosts insist they were murdered, and they need Alison to find out who killed them—or the next ghost in the guest house will be Alison herself... ********************************************************************************* Spell Booked (Retired Witches Mystery Series Book 1) by Joyce Lavene Join the national bestselling authors of the Missing Pieces Mysteries as they conjure up the first supernatural mystery in the Retired Witches series...

But they can’t fly off to Boca Raton just yet. First they must give up their magic, recruit and train three new witches, and pass on their cherished spellbook. They’ve barely begun to consider potential practitioners when Olivia winds up dead and their spellbook is stolen. To honor their friend and reclaim their spells, Molly and Elsie are about to go wand-to-wand with a dangerous young witch more powerful than the trio was in their prime. And this time they’re going to need more than magic up their sleeves... ********************************************************************************* I hope you enjoy both books.
