December is always a busy month for Cozy Mysteries, what with Christmas and Hanukkah and other festive holidays, but this month it’s busy for another reason – I’ve got a good amount of Cozy Mystery news to report!
First up, it’s been confirmed that Lynn Cahoon will be writing more entries in her Farm-to-Fork Mystery Series, with at least two more books coming past the planned third entry which should be released in March 2019. This means the series will have at least five Cozies! That’s pretty fast growth for the series >>> which is terrific news for those of us who are enjoying the series. Lynn Cahoon is the USA Today and New York Times bestselling author who also writes the Tourist Trap Mystery Series and the Cat Latimer Mystery Series.
Next, Josi S. Kilpack will be releasing The Candy Cane Caper, which will be the 13th entry in her Culinary Mystery Series starring homemaker Sadie Hoffmiller. This is especially good news for fans of this series, as there hasn’t been an entry since 2014, leaving it uncertain to many of us if the series would be continuing at all! And of course, for those of us who enjoy Christmas Cozies, this addition will be very welcome…
S.J. Rozan will be releasing Paper Son, the 12th entry in the Bill Smith & Lydia Chin Mystery Series, which will be another good news post for those who are fans of this series, as the last entry in this particular series was released in 2011! It’s always great to see a series return like this, and hearing that several will be revived at once is especially good news!
Finally, Victoria Thompson will be releasing at least two more in her very, very popular Gaslight Mystery Series, bringing that long-running series up to at least 24 entries. And as if this isn’t enough great news, she will also be releasing a third (and hopefully lots more!) in her much newer Counterfeit Lady Mystery Series!
Wow, that’s a lot of great Cozy Mystery News! As I said above, I’m especially excited to be able to report that two series are coming back after significant breaks! It’s always a shame when a series ends unexpectedly, but seeing it come back is always a great surprise!
