Fortunately, unlike September which only has one new Cozy series starting from site authors, October will have three different series beginning!
Barbara Early will be releasing Death of a Toy Soldier, the first in her Vintage Toy Shop Mystery Series. When Liz McCall’s father retires from the local police force of small town East Aurora, New York, to fulfill his dream of owning a toy shop, Liz volunteers to help out by serving as his business manager. When murder threatens to jeopardize their new business venture, Liz will need to act fast to keep her father’s dream afloat. Barbara Early also writes (as Beverly Allen) the Bridal Bouquet Shop Mystery Series, starring Audrey Bloom, the co-owner of a flower shop in Virginia.
Sharon Farrow will be putting out the first entry in her Berry Basket Mystery Series, titled Dying for Strawberries. Marlee Jacob returned to Oriole Point, Michigan, three years ago from the big city of New York, and now runs the Berry Basket, a berry shop and bakery. When Marlee’s best friend Natasha turns up missing, Marlee will need to put aside her business concerns to help locate her friend before it’s too late! Sharon Farrow is also one half of the writing name D.E. Ireland (along with Meg Macy), the writers of the Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins Mystery Series, a continuation of the story of the classic movie, My Fair Lady.
Paula Paul will be starting the Irene Seligman Mystery Series with its first entry, A Killer Closet. Irene Seligman quits her job as assistant district attorney in Manhattan to return to her home city of Santa Fe, New Mexico, in order to help her mother, whose latest husband has recently died. The two are planning to open a consignment store, but these plans are threatened when Irene finds one of her mother’s friends dead in the storeroom. Can Irene discover the killer in time to ensure that their business venture can possibly succeed? Paula Paul also writes the Dr. Alexandra Gladstone Mystery Series, starring a Victorian era doctor in England, and (under the name Paula Carter) the Murder by Design Mystery Series, starring Hillary Scarborough and Jane Ferguson, a decorator and her assistant in Alabama.
