Sunday Salon: Exotic Environments for Three New Mystery Novels


Love and Death Among the Cheetahs (Her Royal Spyness #13)
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.


Love and Death Among the Cheetahs by Rhys Bowen, August 6, 2019, Berkley Books
Setting: 1930s England and Kenya
Georgie and Darcy are finally on their honeymoon in Kenya's Happy Valley, but murder intervenes (publisher)




Death in a Budapest Butterfly (A Hungarian Tea House Mystery #1)
Death in a Budapest Butterfly by Julia Buckley is the first Hungarian Tea House Mystery, publication July 30, 2019, Berkley Books. Hanna Keller runs her family's Tea House,  but when a customer keels over from a poisoned cuppa, Hanna and her tea-leaf reading grandma will have to catch a killer. (publisher)

Singapore Sapphire (Harriet Gordon Mystery #1)

The exotic settings sound delightful. I'll be eager to hear what you think of them.

Your blog is so easy to read. I think you have tweaked it a bit. Nice.

Have a great week.

Have a great reading week

I love Cozies. They always have the cutest covers and are generally fun to read.

Three distinct but lovely covers. I particularly like the looks and sound of Singapore Sapphire. Happy Reading!
