You all have sent me some great recommendations for Cozy Mystery authors who I should post on the site, and I don’t know why it takes me so long to finally get their pages up! Well, I have finally finished getting pages made of four authors – one of whom uses two names, thus the 4 or 5 dilemma.
Elizabeth Lee (aka Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli) Elizabeth Lee writes the Nut House Mystery Series, which takes place in Texas. The sleuth in this series is Lindy Blanchard, a biologist. Lindy works on her family’s pecan farm as a bioengineer, trying to develop the best pecan crops her family can grow. Lindy also works in the farm’s shop, where they sell all sorts of pecan products. Oh, and Lindy also works at solving mysteries!
Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli (aka Elizabeth Lee) Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli writes the Emily Kincaid Mystery Series, which takes place in Michigan. Emily is a reporter who sort of works with Dolly Wakowski, a deputy, solving crimes.
Leighann Dobbs Leighann Dobbs writes several different Cozy Mystery series. Her Lexy Baker series features a baker who gets a lot of help from her grandmother (and her friends!) when solving crimes. Dobbs also writes the Blackmoore Sisters Romantic Cozy Mystery Series, which features two sisters who sell herbal remedies and crystals. Oh, and they can communicate with their dead grandmother. Willa Chance is a crime journalist who sees ghosts in the Mystic Notch Cozy Mystery Series. Dobbs also writes the Mooseamuck Island Mystery Series which takes place in Maine, and features two police consultants, one of whom is a retired police detective and the other, a retired psychologist. Dobbs also writes the Fancytales series (which are based on fairy tales) and the Kate Diamond Adventure Series.
Kathleen Ernst Kathleen Ernst writes the Chloe Ellefson Mystery Series, as well as several American Girl History Mystery books and American Girl mysteries for children. Ernst worked at a living museum in Wisconsin for twelve years, which sounds like the basis for her Chloe Ellefson series. Chloe is a sleuth who is the curator at a living history museum in Wisconsin, during the 1980s. Ernst has been nominated for several Agatha Awards for Best Children’s/Young Adult mysteries and she was also nominated for an Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Juvenile mystery.
Mary McHugh Mary McHugh pens the Happy Hoofers Mystery Series. The Happy Hoofers are a group of friends in their fifties who love to tap dance. They love tapping so much that they now tour the world showing off their tap dancing skills. They travel to places like Russia and Spain, not just tap dancing their ways across the globe, but also solving mysteries. McHugh has written articles for the “Sophisticated Traveler” section of the New York Times.
