Murder Most Sweet (2020)
(Bookish Baker Mystery, book 1)
Laura Jensen Walker
"Murder Most Sweet is a delicious confection of a cozy—full of heart and likeable characters. Jensen Walker nicely captures the feeling of small-town Wisconsin, and Teddie St. John’s enticing desserts will send your sweet tooth to the kitchen."
A Peculiar Combination (2021)
(Electra McDonnell, book 1)
Ashley Weaver
"Ashley Weaver brings her gift for crafting absorbing historical atmosphere and compelling characters to 1940's London in this riveting new series. Ellie McDonnell, a scrappy Irish safecracker used to being on the wrong side of the law, turns her talents to helping the government defeat a ring of Nazi spies. True to form, Weaver's characters are complex and utterly believable, and the plot twists drop like bombs during the Blitz--fast and unexpected. The next installment can't come soon enough."

"Agatha Christie's indomitable and mysterious housekeeper Phyllida Bright takes on a killer in this exciting new series from Colleen Cambridge. Fans of historical mysteries--and Christie herself--will love this well-imagined homage, and the clever twists and numerous suspects will keep readers on their toes. I'm already looking forward to Phyllida's next adventure!"
Die Around Sundown (2022)
(Henri Lefort Mysteries, book 1)
Mark Pryor
"In this riveting new series set during WWII, French detective Henri Lefort struggles with the German occupants of his beloved Paris, as well as his own dark experiences in the trenches during the last war. Saddled with the murder investigation of a German officer, Lefort bumps up against his desire to do what's right--and some of Paris's most famous occupants. A love letter to the City of Light, Pryor deftly evokes the tensions of the time, and crafts resilient characters that readers will come back to time and again."
