"Death Of A Tart" (#64)

"Death Of A Tart"
Kate Borden

"Death of A Tart" is a............whimsical start to a promising new cozy series.

Set in New England ~ Cobb's Landing ~

"As mayor of the broke New England town of Cobb's Landing, Peggy Jean Turner is thrilled with the idea of creating "Colonial Williamsburg in Cobb's Landing." All goes swimmingly, until the town tart turns up dead--and Peggy must risk everything to solve the crime."

Yet another fun read.  And yet another start to a Series.

"Death At Wentwater Court" (#63)

"Death At Wentwater Court"

(A Daisy Dalrymple Mystery)
Carola Dunn

"--the first installment of this cozy mystery series, set in 1923 Britain where unflappable flapper and would-be journalist Daisy Dalrymple daringly embarks on her first writing assignment and promptly stumbles across a corpse."

Another delightful read!   Again, I'm so happy that it is first, in a Series.

"Picture Miss Seeton" (#62)

"Picture Miss Seeton"
Heron Carvic

"Miss Seeton is a retired, often bemuddled British art teacher with a slight psychic ability for drawing things more accurately than they appear."

"Miss Seeton never "gets a clue", yet provides clues galore. She has a remarkable ability to observe things, but never correctly interprets them. She is surrounded by mayhem and criminal activity but only notices "bad manners" as a punishable crime, for which she delivers a swift swat of an umbrella."

This is the first in a series.  Delightful...  So happy I have more, to look forward to.

"Cocaine Blues" (#61)

"Cocaine Blues"

(First 'Phryne Fisher Mystery')


Kerry Greenwood

"This is where it all started! The first classic Phryne Fisher mystery, featuring our delectable heroine ......... and adventure. Phryne leaves the tedium of English high society for Melbourne, Australia, and never looks back."

"The London season is in full fling at the end of the 1920s, but the Honorable Phryne Fisher--she of the green-grey eyes, diamant garters and outfits that should not be sprung suddenly on those of nervous dispositions--is rapidly tiring of the tedium of arranging flowers, making polite conversations with retired colonels, and dancing with weak-chinned men. Instead, Phryne decides it might be rather amusing to try her hand at being a lady detective in Melbourne, Australia."

Looks like a fun series!!!

"The Body On The Beach" (#59)

"The Body On The Beach"
Simon Brett

First book in the "Fethering Mystery" Series

"In the seaside hamlet of Fethering, Carole Seddon maintains a quiet life and doesn't have the tolerance to deal with her bohemian neighbor, Jude. Carole discovers a dead body on the beach with two wounds to the neck, but police dismiss her story when they can't find the body. When a stranger warns Carole to keep quiet, she confides in Jude."

A Cozy Mystery Series, set in a small English town...  Sounds delightful.  And the Series does get better, since I've already read the second book...  But in this the first, the heroine is quite up-tight and not so loveable....  

But, at least, she isn't into knitting, baking, selling old books, scrap-booking, making her own soaps, etc.  -gigggles-  Seems there are so, so, so many Cozys, which are way-too-themed.
