If you’re looking for some escape reading but need it on the lighter side while still being murder-y and mystery-solving, then cozy mystery novels are what you need. As you can imagine, I have a bunch of them for you to curl up with this fall, and bonus points: if you like any of the mystery novels on this list,  you’ll have a whole series to fall into.



With all these best selling mystery authors, certainly, your next favorite cozy mystery is on this list.
