Canada (b.1951)

aka Eva Gates

Vicki began her career as a Sunday writer: a single mother of three high-spirited daughters with a full-time job as a computer programmer. Sunday afternoon was - and at that, only now and again - the only time she had to spend all by herself, with a single candle on her desk for a bit of atmosphere, a Bruce Springsteen tape in the tape deck, and a nice cup of tea at her elbow. When she felt like really letting loose, the tea might have turned into a glass of wine.

Vicki Delany recommends
Peril in Pink (2024)
(Hudson Valley B&B Mystery, book 1)
Sydney Leigh
"Sydney Leigh is a fabulous new voice in the world of cozy mysteries, adding a truly fun millennium touch. . . . I loved Jess and her friends and coworkers and even her frenemies. The untraditional B&B designed to cater to the hashtag crowd is a delight. Jess is witty and clever and loyal and definitely pretty in pink and I am greatly looking forward to checking into The Pearl once again."
Six Feet Deep Dish (2022)
(Deep Dish Mysteries, book 1)
Mindy Quigley
"Delilah O'Leary is as appealing as the pizzas she serves at her new restaurant. Fiercely loyal to her friends and employees, the strong willed, hugely competent Delilah is a cozy heroine for our times. I loved everything about her and her refreshing can-do attitude to cooking pizza, running her restaurant, and solving murders, along with the occasional healthy dose of insecurity! Six Feet Deep Dish is a wonderful start to a promising series, and I can't wait to visit Geneva Bay and enjoy more of whatever's being served at Delilah & Son."
Bayou Book Thief (2022)
(Vintage Cookbook Mystery, book 1)
Ellen Byron
"Byron's love of New Orleans, its people, its history, its culture, its food, shines in every page in this charming book. California transplant, the delightful Ricky heads a cast of exceptional supporting characters, all as quirky as the city in which they're lucky enough to live. Bayou Book Thief is the start of what I am sure will soon become one of my favourite series and I can't wait for my next visit."
