First I love your website and search it often for new series to try! I’m currently enjoying the Chef Maurice culinary mysteries by J.A. Lang. Maurice is a French chef running a restaurant in the Cotswolds. This is a light, fun series full of lovable characters. There is a short story and two books in the series so far.

Carrie, thank you for telling us about J.A. Lang‘s Chef Maurice Mystery Series.
The Colorado Wine Series by Kate Lansing includes three fun cozy mysteries that have recipes in each book. The three books in the series are Killer Chardonnay, A Pairing to Die For, and Mulled to Death. A fourth book, Tell Death Do Us Port, will be released next fall.
I forgot to add another series that I’ve read and enjoyed! It’s called Zion Sawyer series and it’s by M.L. Hamilton. The main character Zion, is a former administrative assistant/customer service rep for a health insurance company. She moves to Sequoia California and takes over running her biological mother’s coffee shop which also sells pastries and other goodies. I’ve read the first 6 books in the series in a box set from Audible, and I really enjoyed them! Not only did I get 6 books for the price of one. But, the narrator Kelley Heyzen is wonderful! I felt like I was litterally a fly on the wall in Zion’s life and in Sequoia, and feeling the same emotions all the characters felt. The perspective flips back and forth between Zion, and the other main character, Tate Mercer a former LAPD. officer who consults with the local sheriff, while running his hardware store.
