Welcome aboard, train wreck.

Mysteries to Make Valentine's Day Cozy
Mysteries to Make Valentine’s Day Cozy

We are coming up on one of my least favorite holidays. Which is weird, because I am a hopeless romantic. Blame my Libran nature. But I can’t stand gushy, smoochy, grossness. Gods, I sounds like a 10 year old boy.

If this is your first time here, welcome aboard, train wreck. Glad to have you here. If this isn’t your first time here, I’m still glad to have you. Please like, comment, share, and subscribe. My goal is to have five hundred subscribers by the end of the year. I think we can make that happen.

What I do enjoy is a slow burn. A little playful banter. And mutual respect of everyone’s feelings and boundaries. And a dead body but not as the romantic interest. That’s a whole nother ball of worms there and I don’t have any interest in that.

I’m giving you a list of cozy mysteries that take place around Valentine’s Day. Because sometimes book boyfriends are better than real ones. This list is pretty long so I’m just giving the author, title, and link.

One thought on “Mysteries to Make Valentine’s Day Cozy

Add yours

  1. I once heard from an old Italian lady that the original idea was for women to be the ones who gave to men, on Valentine’s Day. Rumour has it that Valentino’s sweetheart jilted him for another man. Word got out that he was dying of a broken heart, so women from all over the country sent him flowers and other gifts saying, “I’ll be yours, Valentino.” Hence the phrase “Be my Valentine.” I’m not sure how true this little tale is, but she was adamant about the story and told it with such passion! Ha ha!
