It’s a difficult task, writing mysteries with humor; they are, after all, two mediums not normally combined. I’d argue that the combination is an intriguing one, a combination that would appeal most to female readers of cozy mysteries. The target market would likely be females from young adult to seniors, a large audience, I submit. Most, but not all, of the protagonists in the stories are female. The mystery within each story draws the reader in with a bang of an opening “pull” to a surprise ending so many cozy mystery readers adore. The humor is spattered throughout the stories, keeping the reader chugging along to the surprise endings with a smile.
This is the kind of book a reader would take to the beach. It’s an entertaining book; there are no grand morals or substantive drama. There is no gratuitous violence or sex.
