Sarah Smith recommends
Amnesia (2000)
(Dr Peter Zak, book 1)
G H Ephron (Donald A Davidoff)
"One of the most promising debuts of the year."
Wicked City (2012)
(Zephyr Hollis, book 2)
Alaya Dawn Johnson
"Zephyr Hollis is a tender-hearted stunner of a heroine, and her supernatural New York is a page-turning delight."
The Adventures of Isabel (2020)
(Epitome Apartments Mystery, book 1)
Candas Jane Dorsey
"Candas Jane Dorsey’s terrific mysteries are what would happen if Raymond Chandler and Frank N. Furter collaborated on cozies and the heroine were a pansexual private detective with heart, smarts, and a T-shirt saying MASCARA IS THE NEW NOIR. There’s female bonding, sex (lots of it), and a cat or two. You’ll scream with laughter, you’ll checkmark phrases. And then, if you’re a nice person and love your friends, you’ll put these books in their hands and insist they read them too."
Bold Love (2022)
(Forever Adirondacks, book 3)
Lauren Accardo
"The ultimate comfort romance read...engrossing and heartfelt."
