Carolyn Hart and Diana Mott Davidson are two of my favorite “cozy” mystery writers. Both have their latest in series out last month and both are wonderful. Davidson’s Fatally Flaky is the continuing story of caterer Goldy Schultz. I love this character and the messes in which she gets caught. This time she is planning a wedding and going undercover at a spa. As always the book includes recipes for great food.
Hart’s Dare to Die, a Death on Demand mystery, is another in her series with bookstore owners Annie and Max Darling. When an old friend returns to the island after many years, an old death and new mystery bring friends together in an unexpected and deadly way. Annie and Max must find out all the past secrets before they become the target.
I love both writers and am always excited to see the new books in the series. If you haven’t tried Davidson or Hart, start at the beginning. You won’t be disappointed.
Don’t forget we will be meeting to discuss People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks this Saturday (July 3rd) at one o’clock. Everyone is welcome!
