February looks like it’s going to be a bit sparse on both new Cozy Mystery series starting (with only one series) as well as holiday-themed Cozies getting released (only one of these as well) so I’m going to tell you about both of them in one post rather than making two really short posts.
The new series we will have is Diane Vallere‘s Costume Shop Mystery Series, which will be beginning with A Disguise to Die For. Margo Tamblyn, a former magician’s assistant, returns to her home town of Proper, Nevada, to run a costume shop. Surprisingly enough (to non-experienced Cozy Mystery readers), her very first client turns up dead! Margo will need to call on both her knowledge of magician’s tricks and costumes to help make sure that her friend Ebony Welles doesn’t get blamed for a crime Margo is sure he didn’t commit – though this will be made harder when Ebony flees town! Diane Vallere also writes the Material Witness Mystery Series, the Mad for Mod Mystery Series, and the Style & Error Mystery Series.
Also coming in February is Christine Wenger‘s It’s a Wonderful Knife, a Christmas themed mystery and the 5th in the Comfort Food Mystery Series. In this entry, diner manager Trixie Matkowski will be celebrating the holidays, though the season is marred somewhat when she slips and breaks a leg on a patch of ice. Still, she’s determined to cater the town’s annual Christmas pageant despite her injury – and a good thing too as the pageant director turns up dead! Trixie will need to battle both her own injury and the murderer’s wiles when investigating this nefarious crime!
