Today on the blog, I welcome author Joanne Guidocci, author of the Gilda Greco series. She’s here to talk about cozy mysteries and to offer an excerpt from her new novel, Too Many Women in the Room, and a giveaway, too! Thanks so much for stopping by on your blog tour, Joanne.
Whenever I introduce the Gilda Greco Mystery Series, I often encounter frowns and puzzled looks. Not too many people have heard of cozy mysteries. To them, the word “cozy” conjures up images of steaming cups of herbal teas, overstuffed chairs, and purring cats.
While those images can exist in cozy mysteries, the sub-genre contains many more intriguing elements. Written in the Agatha Christie tradition, these mysteries appeal to readers who wish to be engaged but not horrified.
