Seriously. Though the next cozy mystery I've started is not really grabbing me either. I'm thinking I need to read another type of book for a bit. On the other hand, my current audiobook is so far in the "I will attempt anything to not have to pause it" category.

I liked the opening quotes, too! Weren't they cool? I felt like this book started with such promise and then...."meh"...and then "why is ouija board?". I also had a recent cozy slump, everything I was reading was annoying me. I started and stopped quite a bit. Then I noticed MbD and The Butler Did It were really enjoying cozies by Henery Press. Reading their books is breaking me out of my slump. I read the first two in the Double Whammy series, the writing is definitely of good quality. Though the stories aren't perfect, it's a step above what I had been reading. I really enjoyed Double Whammy. The Butler Did It likes the Doris Day series and there's a Headlines in High Heels series that's getting solid reviews. :)

I love quotes, poems, etc. at the beginning of chapters, so I thought for sure the book and I would be friends. I wish more books, especially more cozies would do that.

I'll have to look at those then. I've seen the Headlines in High Heels reviews MbD is doing and I've seen your Double Whammy reviews. Both are kind of on the edge of cozy themes I'd enjoy reading, so I've not followed them up. But I'd like to get out of this slump and the Doris Day series sounds like it has promise. Thanks a lot!

You're welcome. :) I went to their web page - http://henerypress.com/cozy-mysteries/ - and browsed til something clicked. Then I previewed chapters on my Kindle. I've picked out four books so far. So far, so good! I did start one called the Deep End becuz of the good reviews, and I will admit it's written well - but it was too edgy for me so I returned it. I hope you find one you like! :)

Henery Press is definitely doing cozies in a good way. I'm in the middle of Killer Image by Wendy Tyson. Really enjoying it so far!
