September will be another great month for Cozy Mystery lovers – we’ll have three more series released by site authors!
First, Anna Lee Huber will be releasing This Side of Murder, the first in the Verity Kent Mystery Series. In 1919, Verity Kent is still mourning the death of her husband when she receives shocking news that he may have been a traitor to the English cause in the Great War. She will need to put her own unique skills to the test to determine the truth for herself – for she had worked for the Intelligence Agency during the war! Anna Lee Huber also writes the Lady Darby Mystery Series, starring Lady Kiera Darby, the widow of a deceased anatomist in 1830s Scotland.
Next, Asking for Truffle will be the first in Dorothy St. James‘s new Southern Chocolate Shop Mystery Series. Charity Penn is surprised when she wins a sweepstake prize of a trip to Camellia Beach, South Carolina – she never entered the contest! A local friend volunteers to ask around the town to find out why she won and if it was on the level >>> but ends up dead in a vat of chocolate. Feeling responsible for his death, Charity will need to crack the case to determine how and why her friend was killed. Dorothy St. James also writes the White House Gardener Mystery Series, starring Casey Calhoun, an assistant gardener at the White House.
Finally, Denise Swanson will be starting off her new (?) Welcome Back to Scumble River Mystery Series, the continuation of her Scumble River Mystery Series, with the entry Dead in the Water. I have to admit that this one seems a bit odd – as the Scumble River Mystery Series isn’t exactly had a long break, having released a book last year. I think it’s only being called a new series because she changed publishers… It still stars school psychologist Skye Dennison, and she’s still solving murders! So if you’re a fan of the Scumble River Mystery Series, it seems like a safe bet that you’ll be a fan of the Welcome Back to Scumble River Mystery Series. Besides the Scumble River Mystery Serieses, Denise Swanson is the author of the Devereaux’s Dime Store Mystery Series, starring Devereaux “Dev” Sinclair, the owner of a Five-and-Dime store in Missouri.
