This sampler includes generous excerpts of cozy mysteries that will be published by St. Martin’s press over the upcoming months. Included are titles by by Vivien Chien, Ellie Alexander, Elizabeth Penney, Diane Kelly, Paige Shelton and Mariah Fredericks. Here are the descriptions provided by the publisher.
It’s 1914 New York, and a killer is stalking Broadway in Death of a Showman.
A treasure hunt through Edinburgh gives way to a search for a villain terrorizing the city in Deadly Editions. It’s the end of a beautiful Maine summer in Bodies and Bows, and apron shop owner Iris Buckley must track down a killer before her best friend is arrested for murder and everything unravels.
In Murder with a View, the body of a popular country music singer turns up in Nashville carpenter Whitney Whitaker’s latest real estate investment. Oregon’s favorite bakery Torte’s newest venture – a pop-up ice cream shop – is swirling into a nightmare in Chilled to the Cone.
And in Fatal Fried Rice, a delectable cozy set in Cleveland, Ohio, Lana Lee may be next on the chopping block when her cooking class turns deadly and Lana is forced to investigate to clear her name.
I am excited to read the full edition of a number of these titles.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
