Here is the list of new releases for October 18 to October 24!
I’ve got three pieces of good news about upcoming releases by established Cozy Mystery authors!
First, V.M. Burns will be releasing a new series under the name Valerie Burns, the Baker Street Mystery Series, which will be at least three entries long and is set to star a woman inheriting a bakery and a bullmastiff in Michigan from a deceased great aunt. Burns is already the author of the Mystery Bookshop Mystery Series, starring another Michigan sleuth owning a book store, and the Dog Club Mystery Series, starring a divorced CPA in Tennessee.
Next up, Maria DiRico (aka Ellen Byron), will be continuing her Catering Hall Mystery Series with at least a fourth entry in the series confirmed. Good news for readers who were disappointed that the Cajun Country Mystery Series has come to an end!
Finally, Amanda Flower (aka Isabella Alan) will be starting a new series, the Emily Dickenson Mystery Series, starring the actual poet solving mysteries in 1850s Massachusetts, narrated by her fictional maid. The first entry will be titled Because I Could Not Stop For Death. Flower is already the author of the Farm to Table Mystery Series, the Amish Candy Shop Mystery Series, the Magical Bookshop Mystery Series, and the Amish Matchmaker Mystery Series, among others.
November won’t be as busy for holiday-themed Cozies as October, but there will still be a few Christmas-themed Cozies to look forward to!
First, Emily Brightwell: will be releasing the 40th in her extremely long-running Mrs. Jeffries Mystery Series, Mrs. Jeffries and the Midwinter Murders. The Christmas season is approaching for Mrs. Jeffries and Inspector Witherspoon, but a week before Christmas, a locked-room murder case turns up and threatens to end the holiday season early. The case becomes even more confounding when it become apparent that the victim’s sister may also have been murdered as well.
Also, Winnie Archer (aka Melissa Bourbon & Misa Ramirez) will be releasing A Murder Yule Regret, the 7th in the Bread Shop Mystery Series. Ivy Culpepper is preparing as best she can for Christmas, taking the opportunity to pick up a bit of extra work as her job as a freelance photographer by shooting the local Dickensian dress up Christmas party. Unfortunately, as is so often the case in Cozy mysteries, disaster strikes when a corpse turns up at the party.
