Cozy Experience March Madness – And The Winner Is …

What a fun year of Cozy Experience March Madness! I would like to thank everyone for voting. My goal with this game is to build excitement around cozy mysteries and introduce readers to books in a different way. 

We started with 32 sleuths. Sleuths completed in head-to-head “who would solve it first” competition until we were down to two.

And now, we are down to one.

The winner of Cozy Experience March Madness 2018 is …

Ellison Russell
Country Club Murder Series by Julie Mulhern!

To accept this award on Ellison’s behalf is her author, Julie Mulhern. Julie had a special message to everyone who voted,

I’m overwhelmed! Thank you to everyone who voted for Ellison–I am truly grateful for your vote and that you enjoy her stories.
And, congratulations to my fellow finalist, Ellery Adams, and her wonderful character, Nora Pennington. Ellison and I are awed to be in your company!
Again, thank you–Mother would approve.
If you haven’t read any of the Country Club Mystery Series yet, this is a great time to catch up. The 7th book in the series, Shadow Dancing, comes out June 19, 2018.

Congrats to Ellison and all of our other 2018 protagonists!

All the authors and characters are wonderful but I’ve enjoyed Ellison so much that I’ve listened to Julie Mukhern’s books repeatedly. This contest and her books have been a great escape. Thanks Marie, Julie and everyone.
