Ugh, that's just as bad as the goddidit plot resolution. I love mysteries, so I've read my share of terrible cozies. Thankfully my first exposure was Miss Marple, if I'd started with some of the junk around now, I'd have been put off those too.

All this branding of subgenres is informative for readers, but perhaps it's not working quite the way publishers want. I'm not going to stop reading all 'novels' because I read one bad novel, but I'm likely to give 'military space operas' a pass forever if I read a horrible doorstop in that subgenre.
