Here are the four newest Cozy Mystery authors who I have added to the Cozy Mystery site:
Celina Grace Grace writes the Asharton Manor Mystery Series. This series is being released as novella-length mysteries. All of the mysteries take place in this English estate during different times in history. Death at the Manor is the first mystery at Asharton Manor and it takes place in 1929. The second mystery (A Prescription for Death) takes place after WWII, when Asharton Manor is no longer a beautiful residential estate, but a convalescent home for soldiers. Grace also writes the Kate Redman Mystery Series, which features Detective Sergeant Kate Redman in the south west part of England.
Jennifer McAndrews McAndrews writes the Stained-Glass Mystery Series which takes place in a small town in New York. Georgia Kelly comes back home to live with her grandfather and to start a new life, leaving her accounting skills behind and pursuing her love for stained-glass artistry. Ill-Gotten Panes is the first in this new Cozy Mystery series. Georgia has to make sure her grandfather doesn’t suffer because a murdered man is her grandpa’s nemesis. McAndrews also writes mysteries for Young Adults.
Terrie Farley Moran Moran pens the Read ‘Em and Eat Mystery Series. This series features the owners (Sassy Cabot and Bridgy Mayfield)of the Read ‘Em and Eat bookstore café. The first mystery in this series is Well Read, Then Dead. One of the members of the café’s book club is found murdered, and this doesn’t sit well with Sassy or Bridgy. They are determined to find the murderer! Moran also has contributed to several (as well as edited one) New York Tri-State Chapter of Sisters in Crime mystery anthologies.
Diane Vallere Vallere spent twenty years in the fashion industry, so it’s easy to see why her series are set in that arena. Her Material Witness Mystery Series features a sleuth named Poly Monroe (short for Polyester) who owns a clothing store in California. Poly also is a dress designer. Suede to Rest is the first in this series. Vellere’s Mad for Mod Mystery Series features a sleuth who is an interior decorator. Madison Night is also a fan of Doris Day. In Vallere’s Style & Error Mystery Series, Samantha Kidd is an ex-fashion buyer in Pennsylvania. Oh, and Vallere will also be writing the Costume Shop Mystery Series in 2015.
