I love the continuity of a series. There are several series that I have followed avidly for years(i.e.Valerie Wolzien, Mary Daheim, Jill Churchill, Susan Conant to name a few). I also tend to pick up their books when they begin new series. Series cozies are really my favorites and that's saying something, as I am a self-confessed bookaholic with a TBR pile that is beginning to rival some of the higher peaks of the world. Mickie
