I love summer. That usually means relaxing by the pool, going to the beach or at least vacationing somewhere for at least one weekend. And with those weekends come a chance to read some amazing authors. There are so many great cozies out this month. In cases like this, I wish I could clone myself so I could read them all. But alas, I am only one reader.
Do you have any particulars you are excited about? I know I do! Take a look at this great list for the month of July. If you know of others, feel free to post them in the comment section below. I am always looking for new and interesting mysteries.
Happy July, happy reading and….don’t forget to leave a review for the books you read. A sentence or two mean the world to the guys and dolls who’s works we read.

About Kathi Daley
Kathi lives in the beautiful alpine community of Lake Tahoe with her husband Ken and dog Echo. When she’s not writing she enjoys hanging out on the beach with her children and grandchildren. During the summer she enjoys hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, wake-boarding, and sunset cruises on the lake. During the winter she enjoys cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and curling up by a fire with a good book.
Kathi uses her mountain home as inspiration for her books, all which include appearances by the wildlife she shares her life with.
Kailani Pope wants nothing more than to be a proud member of the Honolulu Police Department. Both her father and grandfather were cops, her five brothers are cops, and the only thing she has ever wanted from the time she can remember wanting anything, was to be a cop. She has passed all the requirements to be selected for the police academy but somehow her number never seems to come up.
While she is waiting for her name to work its way to the top of the list she works as a lifeguard for the Dolphin Bay Resort. When a guest of the resort is found murdered, Kailani decides that if she can solve the murder before her brother who has been assigned to the case by HPD, then the department will have no choice but to take her application seriously and move her to the top of the list.
Murder at Dolphin Bay is set on the beautiful island of Oahu providing a perfect backdrop for the perfect beach read.
