Faux-zy Mystery Book Titles

Are you a fan of cozy mysteries? I’ll be honest with you, I’m definitely not, but I’ve always been curious about the cutesy, wholesome sub-genre that took up space next to the darker mysteries and thrillers at B&N. Not curious enough to buy them, or even take out a title from the library, but still, a bit intrigued.

Thanks to NetGalley, I’m giving it a shot with Christmas Cupcake Murder by Joanne Fluke (review to come). While reading, I did a quick Google search to see what made a cozy book cozy and noticed they all have very colorful punny titles.

What tickles me the most is that they never seem to run out of ideas, so I thought it would be fun to come with my own fake cozy book titles.

Check out the list below and let me know which ones you would read!
