Every once in a while I get recommendations (from the Cozy Mystery site readers) that really take me back! I decided to try to “save up” until I had four authors who I could post together… for those of you who remember them fondly.
Torrey Chanslor (aka Marjorie Torrey, Caldecott Winner): Beagle Sisters Mystery Series… Amanda and Lutie Beagle are spinster sisters who inherit a Manhattan detective agency.
Margaret Erskine: Septimus Finch Mystery Series… Septimus is in the Scotland Yard CID (Criminal Investigations Department) and as such, is a plain clothes police detective.
Phoebe Atwood Taylor (aka Alice Tilton & Freeman Dana): Asey Mayo Mystery Series… Asey is a Boston sleuth who relies heavily on his cousin who happens to be a big gossip AND Leonidas Witherall Mystery Series (as Alice Tilton), which is also set in Boston and features an ex-teacher sleuth.
Josephine Tey: Alan Grant Mystery Series… Alan Grant is an inspector with the Scotland Yard.
