I thought it was about time that I add some new mystery authors to the Cozy Mystery site. These are authors who have been recommended by other Cozy Mystery readers as belonging on the Cozy Mystery site.
Beverly Allen (aka Barbara Early) writes the Bridal Bouquet Shop Mystery Series. This series takes place in Virginia and features one of the co-owners of the Rose in Bloom flower shop. Audrey Bloom sleuths while arranging beautiful wedding flower pieces of art. (You would think the author was a florist rather than the Electrical Engineer she was.) As Early she has written a Christmas novella.
Amanda Cooper (aka Victoria Hamilton & Donna Lea Simpson): OK, OK, I know some of you are already followers of Victoria Hamilton, so you probably know she already has a page on the Cozy Mystery site. I just wanted to officially introduce you all to Amanda Cooper. As Cooper she writes the Teapot Collector Mystery Series. Sophie Taylor is an employee in her family’s Victorian Tearoom in New York. Hamilton’s fans know she writes the Vintage Kitchen Mystery Series as well as the Merry Muffin Mystery Series. (She also writes an historical/romance mystery series as Donna Lea Simpson called the Lady Anne Addison series..)
Lois Lavrisa writes the Chubby Chicks Club Mystery Series. This series features Cat and Annie Mae, two best friends who sleuth together in Savannah, Georgia. Lavrisa has a Young Adult spin-off called the Thomson Twins Mystery Series. She also writes the Liquid Lies thriller/suspence series for Young Adults.
Dixie Lyle Pens the Whiskey, Tango, and Foxtrot Mystery Series. This is a paranormal mystery series. Foxtrot (“short” for Deirdre) is the administrative assistant for a woman who is rich beyond being rich. As her assistant, Foxtrot cares for both the mansion and grounds. Foxtrot is aided by her childhood cat, Tango, who happens to be a telepathic cat. Also along for the sleuthing is Tiny, a shape-shifting ghost dog.
Laura Morrigan writes the Call of the Wilde Mystery Series. Grace Wilde has telepathic abilities with animals. This comes in handy if a crime is committed in the presence of a pet, or a wild animal. Grace is able to get clues that only a witnessing animal can give. The series is set in Florida.
