My friend Cindy hosts this meme of books bought during the past week.

I bought two books by Rhys Bowen:

I haven't read any of this author's books before, but they're mysteries and I love that genre. She has several series and that's a plus for me too.

The description from Amazon for Evan's Gate says:

Welsh constable Evan Evans has found the most delightful shepherd's cottage, but before he seals the deal, a five-year-old vanishes from a seaside caravan park--and he must consider all the suspects. But he can't help wondering if the abduction is related to the disappearance of another girl, twenty-five years ago. Now, as he and his fiancée try to build their dream house, he must also build a difficult case against a possible double murderer.

Amazon's description of For the Love of Mike:

A woman ahead of her time, Molly Murphy is determined to be a private detective. Having inherited the cases of her deceased mentor, Paddy Reilly, she's following philandering husbands, tracking down a runaway Dublin debutante, and working in a sweatshop to discover who's purloining dress designs. None of her jobs seem first. When a woman's body is fished out of the East River, Molly fears it's the missing society girl. Then Molly's sometime beau, police captain Daniel Sullivan, reveals that another corpse may be the girl's scalawag lover, Mike Kelly. But Molly has to know their identities for certain. Now as threads of passion and greed weave a tapestry of violence, Molly descends into the underworld of the gangs of New York. It's no place for a lady, and even a scrappy Irish lass may need more than her street smarts to get the truth...and get out alive.

Both books are parts of a series but different ones. They go into my 'cozy mystery TBR pile'!

I love a good cozy mystery! I hope you enjoy these.

They both sound great. I haven't read a "cozy" mystery yet but I'm thinking when the snow falls and it's too cold to go outside would be a good time to dive into one!!
