March Madness 2018 – Cozy Experience Style

The season of March Madness is upon us. Even those of us who do not identify as college basketball fans have a way of getting swept up in the excitement of watching teams come together for a chance to win the coveted championships. There are always underdogs prevailing as the cinderella story of the season, and players coming together to triumph over adversity to reign supreme.

Sounds like it could almost be a plot out of one of our favorite cozy mysteries …

Finally, a bracket I can fill out! But pairing Erin Murphy of the Food Lovers’ Village Mysteries against Kellye Garrett’s Dayna Anderson? Please! Come on! Erin would be at the finish line, drinking a beer with Det. Caldwell, while Dayna’s still looking for her shoes!

These are tough! Hercule vs. JB Fletcher?! Ouch!
Lots of fun though – and I finally understand brackets!
