There will be one new upcoming Cozy Mystery series by an established site author with their first releases in March!
Gigi Pandian will be releasing Under Lock & Skeleton Key, the first in the Secret Staircase Mystery Series. The first in what promises to be an architecturally based mystery series will start out with one of the most classic mystery premises of all time, the locked room murder. Tempest Raj is heading back to her childhood home in California, and it’s only a matter of time before she also returns to her father’s construction company specializing in eccentric architecture like hidden passages and (as mentioned in the series name) secret staircases. But when a former coworker turns up dead in a passage that was supposedly sealed for over a century, she’ll need to use all of her architectural and mystery solving prowess to determine the killer. Pandian is also the author of the Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery Series starring an antiquarian adventurer and the Accidental Alchemist Mystery Series starring an alchemist in Oregon.
I won’t be discussing this one as much because it doesn’t look particularly “Cozy”, but Wendy Roberts will also be releasing Burning Hope, the first in her Red Hooper Mystery Series. Despite having paranormal elements (a popular element in many Cozy series), this one looks more like a thriller to me… but it might be worth picking up nevertheless.
