First up will be Vickie Fee‘s One Fete in the Grave, a Fourth of July themed Cozy and the third book in her Liv and Di in Dixie Mystery Series. Liv McKay is doing her job as a party planner by organizing a big 4th of July celebration for Dixie, Tennessee, when (surprise!) a corpse is discovered at the party! Liv’s mother’s fiance is the prime suspect, so Liv will need to take it upon herself to discover who really committed the crime.
The other holiday Cozy will be New Year’s themed – Carolyn Haines‘s Sticks and Bones, the 17th in her Sarah Booth Delaney Mystery Series. When an old college acquaintance (Frangelica “Sister” McFee) turns up at a New Year’s party Sarah is attending with her friends, and unfortunately it’s a reunion Sarah hasn’t been hoping for. Her friend is in town to help film a movie based on her memoirs – memoirs in which the death of her mother and brother feature prominently. The crew of the filming thinks that there’s more to the story than the memoirs indicate, and they hire Sarah to determine the truth behind what happened so many years ago.
