Small-town life is often portrayed in character-driven Cozy Romances. With some exceptions, the Cozy does not follow Romance’s formula. The happy ending underscored in an earlier post is no longer key, but is replaced in the Cozy by solving the murder or mystery. Romance is just another element to the story.
Cozy Romances are often published in series format, and the romance can be carried over from book to book. Listed below are Cozy Romances, from Goodreads, where the characters’ actions are front and center. Do you prefer particular selections from these web pages?
Do you consider them more of a Cozy Mystery with a strong romantic element? Some people choose to consider the following, authors of Cozy Romance: Susan Wiggs, Sherryl Woods, Jill Marie Landis (novels of the West), and Debbie Macomber.
