Let’s face it, there is nothing better than kicking back with a ‘cozy’ and a cup of cocoa by the fire after a rotten day at work, school, or in the daily grind of life. Cozy mystery books are the perfect pick me up for any occasion. #CozyMysteryDay
What is a Cozy Mystery?
“Cozy mysteries, also referred to as “cozies”, are a subgenre of crime fiction in which sex and violence are downplayed or treated humorously, and the crime and detection take place in a small, socially intimate community. Cozies thus stand in contrast to hardboiled fiction, which features violence and sexuality more explicitly and centrally to the plot. The term “cozy” was first coined in the late 20th century when various writers produced work in an attempt to re-create the Golden Age of Detective Fiction.” (Wikipedia)

Currently Working On: Poisoned in Paradise
I'm currently working on 'Poisoned in Paradise,' the first book in my new series of 'Grime Fighter Mysteries' and expect to have this one ready for Patrons and Kickstarter backers for free within the next few weeks before it comes out on Kindle Unlimited, Amazon, and in paperback, hardback and audio.
In a race to prevent microbial mayhem, Rynelle slowly warms up to the scrawny man interfering with tracking down the toxin-inducing culprit. But when Joe thinks she’s about to expose his hidden research habitat, he’s forced to choose between career contamination and an out-of-this world romance.
Can the grime-fighting duo save the island from a septic catastrophe and give their love-infected hearts the all-clear?
Poisoned in Paradise is the first book in the feel-good Grime Fighter cozy mystery series. If you like entertaining mixups, quirky characters, and health-conscious hijinks, then you’ll adore Sarah Jane Weldon’s escape from reality.

What's New in the Cozy Mystery Store on Etsy?
A lot of folks have been asking me to upload my colouring book pages so they can be downloaded individually, so rather than setting up a second Etsy store, I've added them to the Cozy Mystery Store to keep life simpler. I've split them into 'complicated colouring', 'cozy colouring', and 'cut-out and colour' so you'll be able to grab them whenever you want some down time now. The Cozy Mystery Day pins should arrive from the manufacturer in China by the end of July so I'll be adding these shortly.
