And on this first day of Feb (where did Jan go?) here are a couple more new releases in the cozy genre.
Former lawyer Nicole Fitzhenry-Dawes has finally settled in to her new home in Fair Haven, and her first maple syrup season is upon them. It’s not going as smoothly as she’d hoped.
Their sap lines keep springing leaks, and as if that wasn’t enough, Nicole finds their groom-mechanic, Noah, apparently trampled in one of the horse stalls.
Fair Haven’s interim police chief is ready to declare it an accident, but Nicole believes otherwise. With Noah in a coma, she’s determined to figure out who wanted to kill him before the perpetrator can return and finish the job.
But whoever attempted to kill Noah has other ideas and is willing to do whatever it takes to stop Nicole from discovering the truth—even destroy Sugarwood and the man Nicole loves.
This next one I was GOING to post because I thought I’d found a real gem, is a MacMillian release. I’m not going to post it. They have gotten COMPLETELY out of control with their pricing. The book is 15 dollars! FIFTEEN DOLLARS for a kindle cozy. That’s utterly ridiculous. Sure, it’s English countryside, which we all like, but 15 dollars? Forget it.
I think I’ll pick a nice, well-reviewed and affordable historical mystery (Victorian) instead!!!
Blackstone and the Rendezvous with Death The body of a young man fished out of the Thames is of little interest to Londoners caught up in the excitement of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Yet to Inspector Sam Blackstone, the case is as puzzling as any he has ever come across.
Why should a corpse dressed the in rags of a commoner have the face of a gentleman?
And if this man does belong to noble stock, why has no one come forward to claim the body?
As his investigation proceeds, Blackstone finds himself entering the world of the aristocracy—in which the presence of an ordinary policeman is far from welcome—and tramping the dangerous streets of London’s Little Russia—where English law and order are not welcome.
Death seems to stalk him, and as each new clue leads to nothing more than a new murder, Blackstone comes to realize that he is caught up in what may turn out to be the most horrendous crime of the century…
