As a part of the Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop, you can enter to win up to four of the novels below. This contest is for USA & Canada residents only.
Note: I haven't read all of these novels, but cozy mysteries tend to be free of sex scenes and gore. They also tend have no to minimal explicit bad language.
