Love mysteries and thrillers but don’t like all the violence and scary plotlines they usually have? Then Cozy Mysteries may be for you!

Usually the violence is minimal, the detectives are amateurs and the setting takes place in a small, cozy community.

LoTempio, in which Toby the cat helps his owner solve a mystery.
