July will be a relatively light month for new Cozy themed holiday novels and new Cozy series by site authors, with just two Cozy Mystery Series beginning by established site authors.
First, Catherine Bruns will be starting the Italian Chef Mystery Series, with first entry Penne Dreadful. Chef Tessa Esposito is struggling to recover from her husband’s death, and learning from the police that he might have been murdered certainly isn’t helping. Tessa decides that the best way to help out the investigation is to look into the last place he was seen, a local pizza parlor. Catherine Bruns is also the author of the Cookies & Chance Mystery Series, starring a baker in New York, the Carrie Jorgenson Mystery Series, starring an aspiring actress and current waitress in a cafe in Hawaii, and the Cindy York Mystery Series, starring a mother, wife, and real estate agent.
Also, Julia Buckley will be starting the Hungarian Tea House Mystery Series with first entry Death in a Budapest Butterfly. Worker in her family’s tea house serving cakes and teas, Hana Keller is shocked when a customer dies from a poisoned cup of tea, causing Hana and her tea-leaf reading grandmother to investigate the death. Julia Buckley is also the author of the Writer’s Apprentice Mystery Series, starring a writer’s assistant in Indiana, the Undercover Dish Mystery Series, starring a restaurant owner in Illinois, and the Madeline Mann Mystery Series, starring a small-town reporter.
