I’ve got a number of pieces of good Cozy Mystery news to share with you all this month!
First, Ellen Byron (aka Maria DiRico) will be starting a new series, the Vintage Cookbook Mystery Series, which will feature at least two book sand will star a woman returning to New Orleans to run a gift shop which will include cookbooks and kitchenware among its sales. Ellen Byron is already the author of the Cajun Country Mystery Series, set in Louisiana, and (as Maria DiRico) the Catering Hall Mystery Series, set in New York City.
Next up, Vicki Delany (aka Eva Gates) will be putting out at least two more entries in the Tea by the Sea Mystery Series, which will take the series to a total of at least four entries. Delany is also the author of the Year-Round Christmas Mystery Series, the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mystery Series, and (as Eva Gates) the Lighthouse Library Mystery Series – among others!
Victoria Houston will be starting a new series, the Lew Ferris Mystery Series, a spin-off of her 19 entry series, the Loon Lake Mystery Series. I’m not sure exactly what the difference between the series will be, as it stars the same sleuth, police chief Lewellyn (Lew) Ferris, but it will at least definitely extend the series by at least two more books.
Finally, Dorothy St. James will be releasing a fourth entry in her Southern Chocolate Shop Mystery Series, titled Bonbon With the Wind, which will involve a hurricane, treasure, and chocolate tea. St. James is the author of several other series, including the Beloved Bookroom Mystery Series and the White House Gardener Mystery Series.
