Who Is Moving To Round #2?

Thanks to everyone who has participated this week and made the Cozy Experience Protagonist Showdown so much fun.

We had over a hundred of Round 1 votes come in and it’s super cool to see the links getting shared and people talking about their favorite sleuths.¬†While only half of the protagonists will move onto the next round, they are all great characters and the real goal is to get us excited about our favorite books and authors and maybe introduce you to some you haven’t read yet (We can always use more books for our TBR pile, am I right?)

So let’s get right to it. Who is moving on to Round 2 of the Cozy Protagonist Showdown.











Congratulations to the following Protagonists who will be moving onto Round 2!

Jane Steward from Ellery Adam’s Book Retreat Mystery Series

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous sleuth, Sherlock Holmes

Bea Cartwright from Kylie Logan’s League of Literary Ladies Mystery Series

Violet Waverly from Amanda Flower’s Magical Bookshop Mystery Series
