I've been reading cozy mysteries in between my book tour books. They seem to fit winter - lighter and often entertaining, except for some grisly details on occasion as they are crime novels, after all. Here are a few that arrived in the mail for review, thanks to Penguin and Berkley Prime Crime.
A Fatal Slip: A Sweet Nothings Lingerie Mystery by Meg London will be released February 4.
"For Valentine’s Day, Emma Taylor and her aunt Arabella have organized a special evening for men only to shop for their sweethearts in the Sweet Nothings lingerie shop. But when art dealer Hugh Granger is pushed from the balcony, Aunt Arabella is framed for her old flame’s murder." (goodreads)
Pecan Pies and Homicides: A Charmed Pie Shoppe Mystery by Ellery Adams, published January 7, 2014.
" Owning the Charmed Pie Shoppe and serving enchanted treats in Havenwood, Georgia, seemed like a little slice of heaven for Ella Mae LeFaye. When an enchanted grove is set ablaze, Ella realizes she’s going to have to sleuth from scratch to stop an arsonist who has no respect for sacred ground—or human life ." (goodreads)
A Chorus Lineup: A Glee Club Mystery #3 by Joelle Charbonneau, published January 7, 2014.
"Paige Marshall, the high school show choir coach, is fighting to keep her singers in a national competition despite charges of sabotage . So-called accidents keep befalling the other choirs. Yet Prospect Glen remains untouched. Paige needs to discover who’s behind the sabotage, or end up singing her own swan song ." (goodreads)
For my final book tour for January, I'm now reading and enjoying Last Train to Paris by Michele Zackheim, an historical fiction set in Paris in the mid-1930s.
What are you reading this winter? Any cozies planned?
