News is a little lighter this month than some – just three authors, but they’re all good ones!
First up, Lynn Cahoon will be starting a new Cozy paranormal mystery series, which should be at least three entries. It will take place in Sun Valley, Idaho, and the star will be running a catering business in an old haunted school. Cahoon is also the author of the very popular Tourist Trap Mystery Series, starring Jill Gardner, a coffee house/book store owner in South Cove California. Lynn also writes the Cat Latimer Mystery Series, starring a sleuth who used to be an English professor – but now is a bed and breakfast owner in Colorado. She also writes the Farm-to-Fork Mystery Series which stars the owner of a farm to table restaurant in Idaho.
Next, Sarah Graves will be continuing her Death by Chocolate Mystery Series with at least three more entries, the first of which will be titled Death by Chocolate Snickerdoodle. The Death by Chocolate Mystery Series is itself a continuation of the Home Repair Is Homicide Mystery Series. Jake (Jacobia from the Home Repair Is Homicide series) is now the owner of a bakeshop. And for those of you who enjoy Cozies with recipes: the Death by Chocolate series has them! Also, those of you who enjoy the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel’s movies, the Home Repair movies are in that line-up. Sarah Graves also writes a suspense crime thriller series called the Lizzie Snow Mystery Series.
Finally, Mary Ellen Hughes will be adding a new moniker : Emmie Caldwell. Those of you who miss the Needlecraft Mystery Series that Monica Ferris wrote, you’ll be super happy to see that as Emmie Caldwell she will be writing a new series of at least three books starring a knitting enthusiast and a knitting circle in Crandalsburg, Pennsylvania. Yahoo for those of us who enjoy needlecraft Cozies! Mary Ellen Hughes is the author of the Keepsake Cove Mystery Series, the Pickled and Preserved Mystery Series, the Craft Corner Mystery Series, and the Maggie Olenski Mystery Series.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this entry, there aren’t a lot of authors but there sure is a lot of good news this month!
