Olivia Blacke

Brooklyn Murder Mysteries author Olivia Blacke writes quirky, unconventional, character-driven cozy mysteries. After shuffling around the U.S.A. from Hawaii to Maine, she currently resides with her husband and their roly-poly rescue puggle, but is forever homesick for NYC. In addition to writing, disappearing into a good book, and spending way too much time on social media, she enjoys SCUBA diving, crocheting, collecting tattoos, and baking dog cookies.

Arsenic and Adobo (2021)
(Tita Rosie's Kitchen Mystery, book 1)
Mia P Manansala
"Arsenic and Adobo caught me from the first line, and it only got better from there. Manansala's fun, fresh voice spins an enchanting fusion of Filipino-American food and culture, artfully and seamlessly woven into a smart, satisfying mystery that made me laugh out loud."
Dead Dead Girls (2021)
(Harlem Renaissance Mystery, book 1)
Nekesa Afia
"Dead Dead Girls expertly combines killer suspense with a heroine to die for....Debut author Nekesa Afia expertly creates an intricate mystery in a lush setting with a strong female main character that is so captivating I'd read a whole book of her doing nothing more exciting than baking a cake. Dead Dead Girls is a must read!"
A Deadly Bone to Pick (2022)
Peggy Rothschild
"A Deadly Bone to Pick is a smart, solid mystery that fans of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone will enjoy."
Magic, Lies, and Deadly Pies (2022)
(Pies Before Guys Mystery, book 1)
Misha Popp
"I DEVOURED it! There is nothing conventional about Misha Popp's flavorful debut. Sparkling with sinister magic, sugary pies, and vigilante homicide, Magic, Lies, and Poison Pies is rocking the Pushing Daisies vibe. When an avenging pie-maker's secrets are threatened, it's going to take more than magic and vintage swing dresses to circumvent a messy recipe for disaster. With inclusive characters, sharp pacing, and a dark sense of humor, Misha Popp is one of my new favorite authors."
Photo Finished (2022)
(Snapshot of NYC Mystery, book 1)
Christin Brecher
"From F-stops to the F-train, Liv's expert eye makes her the ultimate cozy detective in Christin Brecher's Photo Finished. Photographer Liv Spyers and her trusty camera lens charms readers (and the NYC elite) without ever losing focus on the investigation. Expert composition and timing culminates in a portrait of a complex mystery!"
