December will be a decent month for Cozy Mystery releases, with one new Cozy Mystery series by an established site author and one new Holiday-Themed Cozy Mystery.
First up, Amanda Flower (aka Isabella Alan) will be putting out the first in her new Amish Matchmaker Mystery Series, titled Matchmaking Can Be Murder. Millie Fisher is returning to her hometown of Harvest, Ohio, after the death of her husband, and has decided to branch out from her normal trade, quiltmaking, and begin matchmaking, with her niece being her first target. Unfortunately, her niece is already betrothed to a thoroughly unsuitable candidate, but Millie manages to convince her to break it off. But when the jilted lover turns up dead, Millie’s niece quickly becomes a prime suspect, and Millie will need to work hard to keep her out of jail! Amanda Flower also writes (among others) the Amish Candy Shop Mystery Series, the Magical Bookshop Mystery Series, and the Magical Garden Mystery Series.
Also, Cynthia Baxter will be releasing Last Licks, the third in her Lickety Splits Ice Cream Shoppe Mystery Series. Kate McKay, owner of Lickety Splits is preparing for Halloween, but she’s derailed somewhat by the offer of an offer by a Hollywood movie crew to use her shop as part of the production. Unfortunately, someone else seems to have more sinister motives than making a movie, and one of the actresses ends up dead by poison – poison apparently delivered by ice cream. Cynthia Baxter is also the author of the Reigning Cats & Dogs Mystery Series and the Murder Packs a Suitcase Mystery Series.
