September will have two new Cozy series by established site authors and a new Christmas Cozy!
First, Melissa Bourbon and Wendy Lyn Watson will be releasing Murder in Devil’s Cove, the first in their new Book Magic Mystery Series. Pippin Lane Hawthorne and Cora Lane are cousins living on opposite sites of the country (the first in Devil’s Cove, North Carolina, the other in Laurel Point, Oregon). However, they both have different attitudes to their shared gift – the ability to read both the future and the past through reading books. Melissa Bourbon also writes the Magical Dressmaking Mystery Series, the Bread Shop Mystery Series (as Winnie Archer) and the Lola Cruz Mystery Series (as Misa Ramirez). Wendy Lyn Watson is the author of the Mystery a la Mode Mystery Series and the Pet Boutique Mystery Series (as Annie Knox).
The other new series will be Lee Hollis‘s May and Sandra Mystery Series, which will start with Murder at the PTA. Sandra Wallage is the newly elected PTA president, while Maya Kendrick is a private detective. Both are unhappy that someone is using Portland High as a source for a gossip website, but when the pair track down and attempt to confront the columnist, they find them dead. Though the police consider the case a suicide, neither are satisfied with that conclusion, feeling that someone else was involved. Lee Hollis is also the author of the Hailey Powell Mystery Series and the Desert Flowers Mystery Series.
Finally, we’ll be getting one Christmas themed Cozy, Dying in a Winter Wonderland, the fifth entry in the Christmas-themed Year-Round Christmas Mystery Series by Vicky Delany. Christmas has once again arrived in Rudolph, New York, and Merry Wilkinson is looking forward to what will hopefully be a restful holiday, but a local bride is looking to move up her wedding and is pressuring Merry to help make sure the decorations are ready for the new, earlier deadline. Unfortunately, the wedding will never happen, as the bride’s fiance is found murdered at the proposed venue, and it will once again be up to Merry to help solve the case before the end of the holiday season.
