Death at a Country Mansion

This enjoyable series debut, with its diverse cast of characters and clever amateur sleuth, will appeal to readers of Elizabeth J. Duncan’s “Penny Brannigan” mysteries.

Courting Can Be Killer

There is nothing cozier than the second “Amish Matchmaker Mystery” (after Matchmaking Can Be Murder); it’s filled with silly animals, including two Boer goats and a pig. However, the mystery itself is well plotted and will appeal to fans of Flower’s Amish “Candy Shop” mysteries, set in the same community with crossover characters.
PREMIUM

Murder at Veronica’s Diner

It’s Janet Evanovich’s Grandma Mazur times four when the “direct, loud, demanding, impatient, and tactless” women get together for their fourth case (after Murder at Icicle Lodge). Fans of Stephanie Plum’s adventures might want to sample the escapades of four Italian American women in New Jersey.

Murder Comes To Call

This English cozy is perfect for fans of female detectives and mysteries set in quaint English villages.

Finished Off in Fondant

There are few surprises in this second book in the series, following Cobblered to Death. Even the killer is obvious, with no sparks to the standard romantic triangle. The mystery’s appeal is solely for foodies who enjoy televised competitions.

A Big Fat Greek Murder

It’s a little much to have two out-of-control women, one a stalker, in the same book that is already stuffed with characters and some unnecessary side stories. Readers of the first in the series, Statue of Limitations, or fans of Collins’s “Flower Shop” mysteries, might find this of interest.
PREMIUM

A Pretty Deceit

Verity Kent plays a dangerous game of espionage in a story set just several weeks after Penny for Your Secrets. The ongoing story line involving Ardmore will intrigue series readers. Fans of Jacqueline Winspear and Charles Todd will appreciate the psychological and social issues affecting the British after World War I

If the Boot Fits

Although her vindictive boss has damaged her confidence and belief in herself, Amanda is surrounded by supportive friends and a steady, sexy, and respectful love interest in Sam. The sexual tension and flirty banter between the two will have readers rooting them on and anticipating Dru’s comeuppance. Another winner from rising star Weatherspoon.
PREMIUM

Back Bay Blues

The second installment of Colt’s 1980s-set series (after The Off-Islander) will lure fans of Robert Parker’s Spenser into the atmospheric Boston setting. A tight plot, great characterization, and sensitive topics make this a good addition to library collections.
