We will have one new Cozy Mystery Series beginning in April 2017, and two new holiday-themed Cozy releases! I decided to compile these into a single post, since each would be a bit short otherwise.
Nell Hampton will be releasing Kale to the Queen, the first book in her Kensington Palace Chef Mystery Series. American Carrie Ann Cole has just become personal chef to the royal family in Kensington Palace, when one of her assistants turns up dead and the other turns out to be the chief suspect. Carrie will need to discover who truly committed the crime to put her kitchens back in order. Nell Hampton also writes as Nancy J. Parra, under which name she wrote the Baker’s Treat Mystery Series, starring a gluten-free baker in Kansas, and the Perfect Proposals Mystery Series, starring a wedding event planner. She also writes under the Candy-Coated Mystery Series under the name Nancy Coco, starring the owner of a fudge shop in her family’s historic hotel in Michigan.
Kathi Daley will be releasing Easter Escapade, the 24th book in her Zoe Donovan Mystery Series. A crossover with her Sand and Sea Mystery Series, Luke and Lani are visiting from Hawaii when a historian visiting Ashton falls turns up dead. They’ll need to team up with Zoe and Zak to discover who killed the historian, and hopefully retrieve the dead man’s stolen treasure map! Daley also writes the TJ Jensen Paradise Lake Mystery Series and the Whales and Tails Mystery Series.
Finally, Gayle Leeson will be releasing Silence of the Jams, a Fourth of July themed Cozy and the 2nd in her Down South Cafe Mystery Series. When the local Chamber of Commerce director turns up dead on the Fourth of July, Amy Flowers quickly becomes a prime suspect, as he had been attempting to purchase her small cafe to convert the property into a bed & breakfast. Amy will need to track down the true culprit in order to prove her own innocence. Gayle Leeson also writes the Daphne Martin Cake Mystery Series and Myrtle Crumb Mystery Series under the name Gayle Trent and the Embroidery Mystery Series under the name Amanda Lee.
