One of the recurring questions that I get asked a lot is “what book is this from?”, usually from people who are looking to revisit a book they vaguely remember from . While I can answer a fair number of these on my own, there are some that stump even me – but thankfully, rarely you, the site readers! So without further ado, here are a few of the more recent Cozy Mystery identification questions!
First, from Marion B:
Trying to find this book I read about 1980, it was the first book published by this man, his name was Jonathan and I cannot remember his last name. Book takes place in New Orleans about a mother and young son who run a boarding house for the elderly. There is corruption in the local government and voodoo too. It was exceptional! I would love to read it again and find the author.
And the second, from Paul P:
I am searching for the name of a female author I read several years ago, I think at least three mysteries. All took place in Minneapolis-St Paul. The heroine/detective was a lawyer and I believe worked in the DA’s office. There was a Christian-religious theme to the books. Does this ring a bell with anyone? Would greatly appreciate.
EDIT: Possibly the Rachel Flynn Mysteries, by Susan Meissner?
EDIT AGAIN: Paul posted in the comments below, and agrees that this seems to be the Rachel Flynn Mysteries by Susan Meissner!
So, if you think you’ve got the answer to either of these stumpers, please let us know in the comments below! Thank you!
