It’s a COZY Thursday (2/28/19)

Cozy fans, rejoice! While our Thursdays are usually reserved for chilling and pulse-pounding thrillers, today’s celebration features the coastal cozy mystery you’ve been craving.

DRAWN AND BUTTERED: A Lobster Shack Mystery by (librarian!) Shari Randall is the third book in a wonderfully satisfying cozy mystery series set at the Lazy Mermaid Lobster Shack in coastal New England.

Ballerina Allie Larkin’s ankle is almost healed, but for now, she’s keeping the temporary job at Aunt Gully’s Lazy Mermaid Lobster Shack, famed for its mouth-watering lobster rolls and clam chowder. One day, Aunt Gully decides to put her friend’s pet lobster on display, and the whopping twenty-seven pound Lobzilla becomes a media sensation—even more so when he is kidnapped.

“Fans of coastal New England cozies, such as those by Sally Goldenbaum and Jenn McKinlay, will relish this one.”–Booklist

Thriller Thursday (12/14/17 Edition)

Cozy up with some cozies (and a psychological thriller) this December:

BLOODSTAINS WITH BRONTE by Katherine Bolger Hyde
The second book in a delightful new cozy mystery series in which an English teacher becomes involved in murder cases that reflect elements of her favorite books. “The writers’-retreat theme opens the story to plenty of literary references, and there are also details about home remodeling and decorating woven throughout this cozy, set in small-town coastal Oregon and featuring a middle-aged main character trying to decide whether she should totally change her life.” — Booklist

GINGER SNAPPED by Gail Oust
When the body of Realtor of the Year Shirley Randolph is found floating in Brandywine Creek’s local fishing hole, townsfolk think Police Chief Wyatt McBride may be responsible, given his romantic interest in Shirley. “Oust deliciously upends a cozy trope—amateur sleuth vs. professional cop—in her fifth Spice Shop mystery (after 2016’s CURRIED AWAY). Ginger lore and simple recipes provide lagniappe.” — Publishers Weekly readmoreremove
