It’s another modest month for Cozy Mystery news, with only three announcements:
First, for those of us who are fans of Tasha Alexander – you’ll be pleased to know she will again be using her studies of English Literature and Medieval History. That’s right! She’ll be releasing another entry in her Lady Emily Mystery Series, bringing the series to a total of 15 entries, including one more that is scheduled for release in January of 2020 (In the Shadow of Vesuvius), plus this newly announced novel. The very Victorian Lady Emily will be going to Florence this time to do her sleuthing.
Izzy, Nell, Cass, & Birdie have just gotten the green light to solve at least three more mysteries! Sally Goldenbaum will be releasing three more books in her Seaside Knitters Society Mystery Series. The Sea Harbor, Massachusetts knitting group will be kept busy not only knitting, but solving crimes. (Sally Goldenbaum also writes the Queen Bees Quilt Shop Mystery Series.)
Move over Margaret Grace, Jean Flowers, & Ada Madison! Camille Minichino will be adding a new pseudonym to that list. Enter Elizabeth Logan! Camille Minichino (writing as Elizabeth Logan) will be starting up the Alaskan Diner Mystery Series soon. The star sleuth of this series is a woman returning to Alaska to run her retired parents’ diner. As a fan of Camille Minichino, I’m delighted to know this series will include at least three Cozies. I started reading Camille’s Cozies years ago when she released her Periodic Table Mystery Series. (I can’t believe that was over 20 years ago!) She also writes the Miniature Mystery Series (as Margaret Grace), the Postmistress Mystery Series (as Jean Flowers), and the Sophie Knowles Mystery Series (as Ada Madison).
That covers the June 2019 Cozy Mystery News. I’ll have more news next month!
