Over the weekend I found out about two new Cozy Mystery books that are going to be released, which quite frankly, I don’t know how I missed those two until now!
Laura Childs: Most of you probably already know she will be releasing the 16th Cozy in her Tea Shop Mystery Series, titled Ming Tea Murder. But did you know she will also be releasing a new Scrapbooking Cozy titled Parchment and Old Lace? Yep, she will be releasing the 13th Scrapbooking mystery, and I’m pretty excited about that!
Some of you know that my daughter is currently working in New Orleans, so my husband and I occasionally drive out to see her. We have had a great time hunting down the places Laura Childs describes so accurately in her Scrapbooking Cozies. Parchment of Old Lace has the Commander’s Palace in it, which we already had decided we were going to be visiting during our next time out in New Orleans.
Joyce and Jim Lavene/J.J. Cook/Ellie Grant: OK, now I know most of you already know they will be releasing Looking for Mr. Good Witch, which will be the 2nd in their Retired Witches Mystery Series. That’s great news in itself, but did you know they are also releasing a new Peggy Lee Garden Cozy?
Yes, it’s true! It’s the 10th anniversary of their Peggy Lee Garden Mystery Series, and we all get to celebrate by enjoying the 8th in the series titled Killing Weeds.
On to my next find: As J.J. Cook, the Lavenes will be releasing Fat Tuesday Fricassee. This will be the 3rd in their Biscuit Bowl Food Truck Mystery Series. (I’m sorry, but I don’t have the book cover, but will post it on the Cozy-Mystery site as soon as I find it.)
Also, Kathleen Ernst is releasing a new Cozy in her Chloe Ellefson Mystery Series. Some of you know that Kathleen also writes American Girl mysteries, for which she has been nominated several times for the Agatha Award for Best Children’s/Yound Adult mysteries, as well as an Edgar Award for Best Juvenile mystery nomination. The sleuth (Chloe Ellefston) is a curator of a Wisconsin living history museum during the 1980s. Anyway, Death on the Prairie is the 6th Cozy Mystery in this series.
Usually, when I find new Cozies, I just go ahead and post them on the site. But I got so doggone excited about these, that I had to hurry up and tell you!
