Book Review: Button Holed

TITLE: Button Holed
Book 1 in the Button Box Mystery series
AUTHOR: Kylie Logan
GENRE: Cozy Mystery
PREMISE: Josie's life gets hectic when a famous star gets murdered in her button shop.
MY REVIEW: I admit it: I have a cozy mystery problem. That's why you'll see some pop up here from time to time. I know, I know, the genre isn't overly complicated. It's one of those that often has look alike books. But I can't help it, I like them.
Button Holed is no real exception to the cozy mystery store formula: savvy business woman gets into shenanigans, loves her hobby of choice, that leads to mystery, add in hot cop love interest. Stir. I will say this is one of the better written cozy mysteries out there. I got a chuckle or two out of Josie's sassy inner commentary.
Basically, if you want a fun mystery that you don't have to concentrate on, this one fits the bill.
WHO SHOULD READ: Cozy mystery fans
MY RATING: Three and a half out of Five buttons


  1. What exactly is a cozy mystery? This sounds cute and I think I get a general idea? Is Murder She Wrote a cozy mystery?

  2. Cozy Mystery is the term used for formula mysteries basically. Usually, it refers to books like this one where heroine runs a shop of some sort, gets involved in mystery, etc. Usually takes place in a small town. Usually has multiple love interests. Bonus points if there's a cat/cute pet.
    If it were a book series, I bet Murder She Wrote would count, yes.
