Mysteries and cozies are more and more using exotic environments and atmosphere to appeal to readers who may want something different from the traditional settings - bookstore, library, specialty and candy shops, local tea and coffee shops, bed and breakfasts, or hotels, etc.
I have three new mysteries with an African safari theme, a Singapore setting, and a Budapest-style, Hungarian tea house.
