Great meals don’t have to be a mystery—but they can come from a mystery. Selecting the most delicious recipes from some of the most popular names in crime solving, The Cozy Cookbook serves up mouth-watering appetizers, entrèes, and desserts that will leave your family or book club group asking, “Whodunit?”

In addition to recipes, choose a sleuth du jour from our menu of mystery series and get a taste of each of our authors’ bread and butter—page-turning puzzles and stay-up-all-night suspense in excerpts from their bestselling works.

Whether you like your meals sautéed, roasted, baked, or served cold like revenge, The Cozy Cookbook has something to satisfy every mystery fan.
This book contains previously published material.

THE COZY COOKBOOK 
is available for pre-order and 
releases on April 7!

MY REVIEW


THE COZY COOKBOOK is a must have for every cozy mystery fan. You will see so many of your favorite authors included. And cookbook collectors will want to add this book to their collection as well. The mouthwatering recipes by these talented authors are simply amazing!

When I first heard this book was going to be published, I knew I had to have a copy. When I got my happy hands on it, I read it through, cover to cover in less than two days.

The chapters cover a wide range of recipes including Breakfast, Breads, Soups, Drinks, Appetizers, Main Courses, Desserts, and more! From super easy to a bit more work, but they all sound so fantastic!

Interspersed among the recipes are many excerpts from books by the contributing authors. I enjoyed getting to read these shared pieces. They helped me learn more about the series they were taken from and the characters involved.

I profoundly hope the publisher will do The Cozy Cookbook Part II!

As always, please leave a comment and 
let me know what you think!

    1. Thank you, Melissa. No, I haven't. Every time I read one I like, I tell myself I'm going to make it. But I am going to try a few and I'll take photos of mine and post.

    1. Connie, I was very excited to see you included! I also loved the excerpts. It was a fun way to tie everything together. It really was done well, and I would love to see a second volume!

  7. The Cozy Cookbook is on my very long list of books that I planning on ordering. Should be fun to read and to make the recipes from various authors.

    I love cookbooks, and should be paring down my shelves instead of ordering another one, but it is ONLY one book, right??

    1. Cynthia, books are like air, you have to have them. Besides, this is a cookbook. It's not like you're adding to your cozy mystery collection. ;-) (Or so you can say.) :-)

  9. I have at least one book by each of the authors listed, except for B. B. Haywood, but I did read one that I got from the library. I haven't read all the books that I have by those authors, though. I love cozies.

    1. Hi Michelle ~ What's wonderful about this cookbook is it contains excerpts of the characters talking about the food they're cooking. It's delightful!
