Imprint Friday: 8 cozy mysteries from Berkley Prime Crime

Is it winter or is it summer? You can't tell by the temperatures here in central Pennsylvania. When life gets crazy, I get cozy -- here are the latest offerings from Berkley Prime Crime Paperbacks, all released either February 7 or March 7 of this year. I love the titles and the covers (click images for clear view)!

8 cozy mysteries from Berkley Prime Crime
  • Cold Pressed Murder by Kelly Lane: The Olive Grove series is set in Abundance, Georgia, where Eva Knox and her sisters run an upscale olive plantation, entertain the tourists, and solve murders. This second installment involves a food festival, complete with celebrity chefs and a host of quirky characters, some of whom may be guilty of murder. Recipes are included.
  • A Wee Homicide in the Hotel by Fran Stewart: The ScotShop series has a paranormal element: protagonist Peggy Winn's ghostly companion, Dirk, a medieval Highlander who comes in handy when there's a murder to solve. Peggy's base is her Scots-themed store, nestled in a small Vermont town. In this third outing, a tourist is found dead in his hotel room, the victim of a bagpipe crime.
  • Blown Away by Clover Tate: This brand-new series is set on the Oregon coast and stars Emmy Adler, who is getting ready to open her one-of-a-kind, artisan kite shop. It looked like a wonderful day to let her dreams soar high . . . until she finds a body on the beach, and her best friend becomes the prime suspect.
  • Gone with the Twins by Kylie Logan: The League of Literary Ladies Mysteries are set on an island in Lake Erie, where the local book club is earning a reputation for their sleuthing abilities. In the fifth entry, the women get caught up in a murder that may have roots in the island real estate business. It gets personal when the police start to suspect that one of the club members might be guilty.

  • No Cats Allowed by Miranda James: A Cat in the Stacks series combines a book-loving cat, Diesel, and a murder-solving librarian, Charlie Harris, who live in a small town in Mississippi. In the seventh installment, local bigwigs decide to make changes to the beloved library, and things heat up, resulting in a murder. Can Charlie and Diesel find the killer before an innocent staffer gets convicted?
  • Roux the Day by Linda Wiken: The Dinner Club Mysteries are set in Burlington, Vermont, and revolve around themed dinner parties, with a little murder on the side. In this second installment, dinner plans go awry when one of the guests is found dead before the meal has ended. Police point the finger at our hero, master event planner J. J. Tanner. Recipes are included.
  • The Silence of the Flans by Laura Bradford: In the Emergency Dessert Squad series, Cincinnati baker Winnie Johnson has a talent for sweets and for digging up clues. When a student is found poisoned after eating one of Winnie's desserts, she must scramble to clear her name and her shop's reputation. This is the second entry in the series, and it includes recipes.
  • War and Peach by Susan Furlong: In this third Georgia Peach Mystery, Nola May Harper, peach farmer and shopkeeper, stays current both with the local gossip and with any murders. When the race for mayor becomes deadly, the town turns against Margie, an area businesswoman with political ambitions. Nola, however, is sure her friend is innocent, if only she can prove it. Recipes are included.

I just love cozy covers, and often find myself drawn to certain ones just by the cover, even if the actual mystery or premise doesn't appeal to me! Blown Away looks fun and I love the ones w/ cats (especially No Cats Allowed here).

Cozies have the most delightful covers and titles. I don't read them too often but sometimes they are just the thing! These look like fun.

I need to catch up on my cozy mystery reading. It's been so long, and I get in moods for them without ever getting to them. These look like a lot of fun.
