Pushing Daisies- Available on HBO Max and Signed, Sealed, Delivered - Available from the Hallmark Channel
These two shows are arguably romantic cozy mysteries, where every episode centers around the main characters' relationships. Pushing Daisies is perfect not just for February, but for quarantine as well, since the main characters are star-crossed lovers who can't touch each other and must stay apart at all times (not because of Covid, but for a deadly reason nonetheless).
In Signed, Sealed, Delivered the entire story focuses on the romance in a lost letter, so essentially every episode of this short cozy series is a romantic mystery in the making.
If you're looking for a cozy mystery series with romance infused throughout each episode, you'll want to watch these two shows right through.
