Kym Roberts | Cozy Corner: The Best Cozies of 2018
Author Guest , Cozy Corner / January 7, 2019

It’s my favorite time of year…I get to choose my favorite cozies released in the past twelve months!  And yet, it’s the hardest thing to do, almost like looking at all of the ornaments on my tree and trying to decide which ones I like the most. Since they all belong to my kids and were gifts from my parents who have been gone for too many years, it’s a monumental task, emotional and heart-warming. Like our ornaments, each mystery I’ve featured, along with the books featured on the Cozy Corner by guest authors, has a special place on my bookshelf. Whether it be the hardback, paperback or the ebook, I tend to keep more than I should so that I can go back and reminisce about the wonderful experience. Maybe I should start a tree with book ornaments—my very own Charli Rae and Scarlet would love that in the Book Barn, don’t you think? Princess the armadillo, however, would probably root through the ornaments and knock over the tree. Goodness, but I do see a holiday novella scurrying through my brain for next year! Without further ado, I give you my favorite mysteries and blogs of 2018! Teen Drama…

Teen Drama at its Best—and Deadliest

A Review of S.T.A.G.S. by M.A. Bennett S.T.A.G.S. by M.A. Bennett, is a fast-paced mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to know more. The story starts off with the main character, Greer MacDonald, coming to a private school named S.T.A.G.S. She finds herself alone, with no friends in a school that is much fancier than her last, but she’s managing fairly well during the first part of the school year. Then during Justitium, the school’s mid-term break, Greer gets a letter slipped under her door from one of the Medievals, the most popular group in the school, inviting her to spend Justitium at Longcross Hall—the home of the most popular Medieval, Henry Warlencourt. Is this invitation like any old invitation to a birthday party or special event, or is there a hidden story behind the listed events of “Huntin’ Shootin’ and Fishin’“? M.A. Bennett knows how to organize and compose a novel to make the reader feel like she is truly a part of the story. From the first word of page one, I knew this was going to be a book that kept me up at night secretly reading. I could never stop reading….
