Here are some authors who have been recommended to me by Cozy Mystery readers. I have been told that these authors really should be on the Cozy Mystery site. I have not read any of their mysteries yet but as I said, they have been recommended by other lovers of Cozy Mysteries!
Tessa Harris Harris is an Oxford University history major who became a journalist. She now writes the Dr. Thomas Silkstone Mystery Series. Thomas Silkstone is an American anatomist from Philadelphia who has moved to London during the 1780s. ((I will be adding this series to the British theme, the Medical Doctor theme, and the Historical theme.)
L.B. Hathaway Hathaway is a Cambridge graduate who practiced law for ten years before deciding to become a full-time author. She writes the Posie Parker Mystery Series, which features Posie – who is sometimes referred to as “Nosey”. Posie is a struggling private detective who lives in London during the 1920s. Hathaway also writes the Blood and Stars Trilogy, thrillers that are set during King Henry VII’s reign. (I will be adding this series to the British theme, as well as the Historical theme.)
Carol J. Perry Perry writes the Witch City Mystery Series which features Lee Barrett, a reporter. When Lee returns to Salem, Massachusetts, the only reporting job she can get is at the local WICH-TV station. Unfortunately it is hosting the horror movie show. Lee and her Aunt Ibby inherit O’Ryan, a cat who seems to have magical powers. Oh, and Lee begins seeing things in the prop crystal ball she uses in her horror show hosting job. (As an aside, the first book in the series, Caught Dead Handed, is a Halloween theme mystery.) (I will be adding this series to the Cat theme, the Psychic theme , the Reporter/Journalist theme, and the Massachusetts theme.)
LynDee Walker Walker is an ex crime reporter who is now concentrating on writing her Headlines in Heels Mystery Series. Nichelle Clarke is the sleuth, and she happens to be a reporter in Virginia. Nichelle listens to her police scanner in order to high-tail it to the scenes of crimes. The first mystery in the Headlines in Heels series was nominated for the very prestigious Agatha Award for Best First Novel. (I will be adding the Headlines in Heels Mystery Series to the Reporter/Journalist theme , the Virginia theme, and the Agatha Award for Best First Novel page.)
P.S. For those of you who are new to the Cozy Mystery site, I try to highlight the links that will take you to the appropriate pages on my site. Just click on the blue links, and that should take you to the theme I mention.
Thanks for the newest author additions. Out of the four listed I have read Carol J. Perry’s Caught Dead Handed. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I will be checking out the other 3 soon.
