June will be a relatively good month for Cozy mysteries, with three new holiday-themed Cozy Mysteries by established site authors!
First, Nancy Atherton will be putting out the 24th in her long-running Aunt Dimity Mystery Series, titled Aunt Dimity and the Heart of Gold. This will be a Christmas outing for Aunt Dimity, who will be enjoying the season despite an outbreak of illness in the small English village of Finch. Still, there are enough out and about to attend Emma Harris’s annual Christmas party, and those who do attend will be surprised to find that there will be a mystery needing solving!
Next up, Devon Delaney will be continuing her Cook-Off Mystery Series with its third entry, Guilty as Charred, a Fourth of July themed entry! Competitive cook Sherry Oliveri is in high demand in her hometown in Connecticut, but the holiday is likely to see a bit of a downturn with the death of community garden manager Poppy Robinson. Poppy may not have been the most likable, but that’s no reason to whack someone over the head with a shovel – and now the garden’s future is threatened by an owner unhappy with the development! Can Sherry figure out the culprit in time to return to her Fourth of July cook-off plans?
Finally, Amanda Flower will be putting out Toxic Toffee, the fourth book in her Amish Candy Shop Mystery Series (which I just discussed recently)! Bailey King is in New York to finish up the shooting for her first cable TV show, but she’ll need to make a fast return to Harvest, Ohio, when she hears that local bunny farmer, Stephen Raber has died of what at first seemed to be a heart attack. However, it’s quickly apparent this was no accident – Stephen was poisoned, and by a piece of toffee! Amanda Flower writes many other mystery series, including the Magical Bookshop Mystery Series, the Amish Matchmaker Mystery Series, the Magic Garden Mystery Series, and the Living History Mystery Series.
