August will be a good month for Cozy Mystery lovers – there will be three new series debuting by site authors!
Amanda Flower will be releasing Assaulted Caramel, the first entry in her Amish Candy Shop Mystery Series. When Bailey King returns from her career in New York City to her hometown of Harvest, Ohio, having heard that her grandfather’s heart condition has worsened, she’s reassured to learn that the situation isn’t as grave as she had heard. However, she isn’t reassured to discover a dead developer in the candy shop kitchen – and her grandfather’s knife sticking from the corpse. Bailey will need to get to the bottom of this dastardly crime to make sure that her grandfather stays out of jail. Amanda Flower also writes the Magical Bookshop Mystery Series, the Living History Museum Mystery Series, the Appleseed Creek Mystery Series, the Andi Boggs Mystery Series (intended for children), and (as Isabella Alan) the Amish Quilt Shop Mystery Series.
Cate Conte will be putting out the first in the new Cat Cafe Mystery Series, which will be starting with Cat About Town. When Maddie James visits Daybreak Island in Massachusetts, a stray orange tabby inspires her to open a cat cafe. Unfortunately, the precocious tabby also locates a corpse in quick order, and outsider Maddie will need to act fast to ensure that she isn’t held responsible for a murder that she didn’t commit. As Liz Mugavero, Cate Conte also writes the Pawsitively Organic Mystery Series, starring an ex-public relations executive in small town Connecticut.
Finally, E. J. Copperman will be releasing Dog Dish of Doom, the first entry in his An Agent to the Paws Mystery Series. Kay Powell, professional agent, is looking for a new star client – and she may have found one in a dog! The biggest problem with client Bruno is his owners, Trent and Louise – a problem that isn’t exactly reduced when Trent turns up face down in Bruno’s water dish. Kay feels protective to her clients, and will do whatever it takes to figure out who did this to her client’s owner. E. J. Copperman also writes the Haunted Guesthouse Mystery Series, the Mysterious Detective Mystery Series, the Asperger’s Mystery Series, and, as Jeffrey Cohen, the Aaron Tucker Mystery Series and the Double Feature Mystery Series.
