There will be three great looking Cozy Mystery Series starting in April:
The first new series coming out will be the Magical Bookshop Mystery Series by Amanda Flower, with its first book, Crime and Poetry. In this book, Violet Waverly thinks her grandmom (Daisy) is sick, but is surprised to find her in good health. Instead, Daisy wants her to help run her bookshop >>> one where magic is in the shelves and books themselves! A dead man is found with a volume of Dickinson poetry from Daisy’s shop, and this very same dead man recently put Daisy in his will. Violet and Daisy will need to find the killer before Grandma Daisy becomes the next victim. Amanda Flower also writes the Living History Museum Mystery Series, starring the director of a living history museum, the Ohio Amish country Appleseed Creek Mystery Series, and the India Hayes Mystery Series, featuring a college librarian. She also writes the children’s Andi Boggs mysteries. As Isabella Alan she writes the Amish Quilt Shop Mystery Series.
Next up is Should Have Played Poker by (Judge) Debra H. Goldstein, the first in the Carrie Martin and the Mah Jongg Players Mystery Series. When Carrie Martin, corporate lawyer, meets her mother for the first time in over two decades since her mother abandoned her family, she gives Carrie a sealed confession that she once considered killing Carrie’s father. Carrie tries to seek out her father to learn more about the situation, but before reaching him she finds her mother dead, and the woman who raised Carrie seriously injured. Carrie will need to bring in her co-sleuths, the Sunshine Village Mah jongg players, to try to unravel the past if she wants to really learn how and why her mother died. Debra H. Goldstein also writes the Denney Silber Mystery Series, starring a university student in 1970s Michigan.
Third and final on our list is Edith Maxwell‘s Delivering the Truth, the first in her new Quaker Midwife Mystery Series. In this novel we will be introduced to 1880s Quaker midwife Rose Carroll. When the town’s famous carriage industry is threatened by a dangerous fire and the owner’s son is killed with Rose’s knitting needle, Rose will need to rise to the occasion to help discover the killer before the town’s industry and the source of many of their livelihood can be threatened once more. Edith Maxwell also writes the Local Foods Mystery Series starring an organic farmer in Massachusetts and, as Maddie Day, she writes the Country Store Mystery Series, starring the owner of the Pans ‘n’ Pancakes Country Store Restaurant in South Lick, Indiana.
