Do you ever get the déjà vu feeling? Kind of like… this feels like two days ago… but I know it’s today? I guess that’s how I could explain this blog… Other than the difference in number, the idea is the same: I want to introduce… sort of put the spotlight on… new authors who came to my attention because of site readers. So, without any further distracting “blogging,” here goes!
Amy Patricia Meade: Meade writes the Marjorie McClelland Mystery Series which is set during the 1930s in Connecticut and features a mystery author. (This series is included on its corresponding Historical Theme page.)
Deanna Raybourn: Raybourn writes the Lady Julia Grey Mystery Series which is a historical mystery series that is set in Victorian England. (I have included this series on its corresponding Historical Theme page.)
T. Dawn Richard: Richard writes the May List Mystery Series which features a woman who leaves her philandering husband after 35 years of marriage and moves to a retirement community… to begin a new life as a sleuth. (I have included this series on its corresponding Senior Sleuth Theme page.)
June Thomson (aka June Valerie Thomson): Thomson writes the Inspector Jack Finch (in Great Britain)/Inspector Jack Rudd (in USA) Mystery Series. (Different names, same series.) She has also written several Sherlock Holmes books which are collections of short stories. (I have listed these Sherlock Holmes books in the Mysteries with (Previously) Famous Fictional Characters Theme.)
Anne White White writes the Lake George Mystery Series which is set in a beautiful resort town on Lake George… (I actually came by Anne White in a rather round-about way… Her daughter, Kate White, was recommended for the site, and while I was compiling my information for Kate’s page, I clicked on her mom’s page, and once there, I thought that Anne White should definitely be included on the site!)
I just got hooked on cozies and am going nuts with it! A bookshop near my apartment’s monthly featured title was “Son of the Ripper” by Patrick Glendon McCullough and I just got it based on the cover. I ran back to the store after I’d read straight thru it that weekend and asked what I could read in the same style and was referred to this site. And this post has given me my new marching orders! I know I’m going to love all five of these authors! Thanks!
