Thriller Thursday: Cozy Mysteries (8/13/20)

Today we’re curling up with some cozies with some delectable trouble in the Ho-Lee Noodle House, a Lobster Festival gone wrong, the first in a new series set in the remote Scilly Islands, and a pair of rare falcons at a Renaissance Faire.

KILLER KUNG PAO: A Noodle Shop Mystery by Vivien Chien

“Lana is a quirky but responsible young woman in this engaging cozy, nicely framed by details of running a restaurant in suburban Cleveland while living up to her family’s high expectations.”–Booklist

THREAD AND DEAD: The Apron Shop Series by Elizabeth Penney

“This is a novel of female friendship, and we watch as Iris and her friends from the shop eat, watch a parade, attend a festival, and lament failed romances. In the last 100 pages, criminality breaks through, with vandalism, a chase, a drugging, and revelations about jewels and monograms. Then it’s off to a dinner dance and a fashion show, where the killer is revealed in a fine, tense scene. Cozy fans will love it all.”–Booklist

DEATH AT HIGH TIDE: An Island Sisters Mystery by Hannah Dennison

“A vividly described setting, effective plot twists, and a strong portrayal of sisterly love distinguish this ‘locked island’ mystery, the first in Dennison’s Island Sisters series.”–Booklist

THE FALCON ALWAYS WINGS TWICE: A Meg Langslow Mystery by Donna Andrews

“As usual, Meg is front and center helping Riverton police chief Mo Heedles track down the culprit. Andrews supplies her usual droll plot and familiar cast of eccentrics, and the picturesque Renaissance Faire setting adds to the fun. This quirky, long-running cozy series shows no signs of losing steam.”–Publishers Weekly
