One of my favorite cozy mystery series is the Southern Sisters set by Anne George. Set in Birmingham in the 1990s, the books feature retired teacher, Patricia Hollowell, and her unforgettable sister, Mary Alice. They are warm and funny, and hugely nostalgic for me since Patricia is an almost perfect rendering of my grandmother–also a Patricia. These are the ultimate comfort read for me, and I was delighted when the publisher made them available on Kindle. The series can absolutely be read out of order, but the first is MURDER ON A GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT. (George, who passed away some years ago, was also a Pulitzer-nominated poet.)
