Jenkins (but IMO Will’s story is the funniest Cozy in the book). Short stories, novellas, and all stops in between! Enjoy dipping into this book whenever you have a few minutes when you can read. Whatever your taste in Cozies, we hope that you will enjoy these stories, and I do not hesitate to say that there’s something here for everyone… 100% of book sale proceeds go to the non-profit RAICEStexas.org who help children living in dreadful conditions.
