Elections are over and the holiday rush is beginning! It’s time to read something relaxing. How about a cozy? If you’ve never read one, a cozy is a novel, often a mystery, that takes place in a small town or village and the sleuth, usually a woman, is an amateur. They are character-driven, often humorous, and usually appear in a series.

The Booker is a British prize and historically has been awarded to UK authors, but it has been opened up to books from other nationalities. They must be originally written in English and published in the United Kingdom.
