I don’t know if any of you have been keeping an eye on the Cozy Mystery site’s new page entitled New Cozy Mystery Book Series, but if you have, you already know that three of our Cozy Mystery authors are embarking on new series during the month of May. Wow! We had three new series during April, and now we have three more Cozy Mystery series to look forward to. Personally, I think that’s pretty neat!
Dorothy Cannell, that’s right, Dorothy Cannell of the very popular Ellie Haskell Mystery Series (The Thin Woman, etc.) is starting the new Florence Norris Mystery Series. Florence is a housekeeper for the very upper-crust Stodmarsh family. She works at Mullings, the country house that has been in their family for three hundred years. The series takes place during the 1930s. Murder at Mullings will be the first in Cannell’s new Florence Norris Mystery Series.
Hannah Dennison of the Vicky Hill Exclusive! Mystery Series is finally back, and after a three year absence she will be bringing us the new Kat Stanford Mystery Series. Kat Stanford was formerly a television celebrity host who now owns the Honeychurch Hall Antique Shop in England. Kat and her mother, Iris, had been planning on opening a fabulous antique shop, however Iris bought a shabby, old carriage house on a country estate that is not in a good location for an antique shop. Besides all of this bad news, Kat is discovering she doesn’t know everything there is to know about her mother. Murder at Honeychurch Hall is the first of the Kat Stanford Mystery Series.
Mary Ellen Hughes, the author of the Craft Corner Mystery Series as well as the Maggie Olenski Mystery Series, will be giving us the new Pickled and Preserved Mystery Series. This series takes place in Cloverdale, a small town in New York. Piper Lamb is the owner of Piper’s Picklings, a shop which specializes in pickels and preserves. Piper is given a great opportunity to showcase her pickles at the Cloverdale Fair, but instead of highlighting her pickles, she ends up having to highlight her sleuthing skills.The Pickled Piper is the first mystery in the Pickled and Preserved Mystery Series.
I don’t have any new Holiday Cozy Mysteries to tell you about this month, but I believe there are a couple I’ll be telling you about next month.
