How much banter is too much in a Cozy Mystery?

The back-and-forth ‘sparring’ between major characters is a hallmark of my Romance novels. When the relationship between the leads is the story, banter makes sense. But when the solving of a mystery is the book’s focus, when does the verbal to-and-fro become more of a distraction than an asset to the story?


It’s a surprisingly nebulous thing.

Until tomorrow…
