Here is the holiday theme that I most look forward to. I know I have talked (many times!) about how I miss my seasons down here in San Antonio. I sometimes rely on a good Christmas Cozy Mystery to get me in the holiday mood. I especially like the ones that are set in cold, snowy areas.
New Christmas Mysteries:
Bernadette Pajer‘s 4th book in her Professor Bradshaw Mystery Series, entitled The Edison Effect, will soon be released. This Christmas theme mystery has Professor Benjamin Bradshaw, an early 1900s electrical engineer and inventor in Seattle, investigating the murder of an electrician at a men’s clothing store who is found with holiday lights in his hand. Professor Bradshaw, his friend, and a detective try to follow the clues in order to solve the case.
J. D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) is releasing Festive in Death, the 40th in her Eve Dallas in Death Mystery Series. Eve is a lieutenant in the New York police force in a futuristic 21st century (2050s – 2060s). As Nora Roberts she writes romantic suspense novels. While this is an extremely popular mystery series, it is not Cozy.
Lea Wait is also releasing a Christmas theme mystery. Wait’s 7th Shadows Antique Print Mystery Series entitled Shadows on a Maine Christmas will soon be available for reading. Maggie Summer is an antique print dealer. She and her antiques dealer beau (along with his great aunt) head to Maine to spend a wonderful Christmas holiday. Wait also writes the Mainely Needlepoint Mystery Series, and historical novels for children.
