Howdy Cozy Mystery Readers!

It’s 2014 and who’s ready for some great new reads? 

First off there’s some terrific new cozy series. 

If you’re an adventure junkie, January is the launch of a Search and Rescue series by M.L. Rowland set in California. Love that it’s a different topic.

If you like pets there’s also Annie Knox’s The Pet Boutique Mystery series set in Minnesota. I’d buy this book on the cover alone.

In February we get Elizabeth Lee’s Nut House Mystery Series set in Texas. It features Lindy Blanchard who has devoted five years of her life to saving the pecan trees on her family’s farm. Lindy works at the family store, the Nut House famous for delicious pies and cookies.

Beverly Allen writes the Bridal Bouquet Shop Mystery series which starts in April and J.J. Cook writes the Biscuit Bowl Food Truck Mystery series set in Mobile, Alabama...

Some books in established series I can’t wait to get my hands on are…

January it’s Ellery Adams Pecan Pies and Homicides and serving enchanted treats in the magical town of Havenwood, Georgia. 

Julie Hyzy’s Home of the Braised where tensions are running high as the White House staff adjusts to a new chief usher and prepares for a high-stakes state dinner.

February it’s Days of Wine and Roquefort by Avery Aames, just love the Cheese Shop Mysteries and... 
Shelia Sheila Connolly’s Scandal in Skibbereen, the second in the County Cork Mystery Series. As the new owner of Sullivan’s Pub in County Cork, Ireland, Maura Donovan gets an earful of all the village gossip.

March is Inherit the Word. When tempers get too hot to handle, someone's bound to get grilled. And 
How to Paint a Cat. San Francisco isn’t the biggest city in the country, but it feels pretty vast when you’re canvassing its neighborhoods looking for clues to your missing uncle’s hidden location.

And I have Pearls and Poison coming out…some elections are pure murder.

April it’s A Killing Notion. Harlow is doing everything she can to expand her dressmaking business, Buttons & Bows, without letting clients know about her secret charm. 

And Mr. Jeffries Pleads the Fifth. Everyone’s awed by Inspector Witherspoon’s Scotland Yard successes, but they don’t know about his secret weapon. Her name is Mrs. Jeffries, and she keeps house for the Inspector.

In October I just can’t wait for Janet’ Bolins Night of the Living Thread
It’s early October, and hordes of visitors have descended on the tiny, celebrated village of Threadville, Pennsylvania, to attend a Halloween crafts fair, a zombie retreat of all things.

Okay these are a few of the books I’m looking forward to. What about you? I’ll give away three Killer in Crinoline totes from the answers. What a great year for cozy mysteries!!!! 

And always remember… Life’s a mystery…Enjoy

Hugs, Duffy Brown

  5. Duffy, you and I must have similar tastes in books. I am looking forward to many of these as well. I really have enjoyed the Consignment Shop series. Such fun reads! The characters are feisty individuals, there are laugh out loud moments, and great story lines. .

  7. Hi Duffy: I truly am looking forward to Pearl's and Poison of course, and also waiting for Gretchen Archer's next book coming out at the end of this month, and that is DOUBLE DIP. I have read this book and cannot wait to post my review to the public forums so that everyone else will know how great the second book in her Davis Way Mystery series is (as was her first in the series, DOUBLE WHAMMY!!!). I am also looking forward to books coming out by LynDee Walker, Larissa Reinhardt, Susan Boyle and Cleo Coyle and Sheila Connolly in her Orchard Mystery series, just to mention a few. There are others but these are the authors that I most want to read the next in their mystery series. Cozies are my favorite genre, but I do like other books/genres too, but not quite as much as my mysteries. :) Wishing you continued writing success in 2014 Duffy.
    Sincerely,
    Cynthia Blain
