The fifth outing in the Cheese Shop mysteries is Days of Wine and Roquefort. Charlotte Bessette’s life seems quieter than ever with her fiancé out of town and her cousin Matthew and his children out of the house. But before she can put up her feet and enjoy a glass of chardonnay, Matthew asks her to play host to Noelle Adams, a bright sommelier visiting to help grow business for the local winery.
Daryl's second Cookbook Nook mystery just came out this month. This cozy mystery series features Jenna Hart, avid reader and foodie, who owns a cookbook store in a picturesque coastal California (think Carmel, California). In Inherit the Word, the Cookbook Nook is set to host the town’s upcoming Grill Fest, a tasty tradition, which pits local amateur chefs against one another. The expression “too many cooks” proves all too true when the eight-time champ is found murdered in the alley behind the café. Jenna has to douse the flames before the wrong person gets burned.

Spring is in the air and there's a fresh crop of mysteries to enjoy. The great thing about the mystery genre is that no matter what mood you're in, it's always possible to find a great read. Cozy readers will enjoy the latest installment of Laura Child's Tea shop mysteries. Looking for a little noir? Benjamin Black has channeled Raymond Chandler for a walk down the mean streets with Philip Marlowe. Something historical? Anne Perry has a new Thomas and Charlotte Pitt novel and C.S. Harris takes us on another Sebastian St. Cyr adventure.
So many good books to enjoy...
