Cozy Case Files, Volume 19 is a sneak-preview collection of 8 new cozy mystery series novels. Released 22nd Aug 2023 by Macmillan on their Minotaur imprint,
it's 243 pages and can be accessed on most ebook retailers (Amazon,
Rakuten/Kobo etc) to download and read for free. This is the 19th cozy
mystery sampler from Minotaur. It's worth noting that the ebook
format has a handy interactive table of
contents as well as interactive links. I've
really become enamored of ebooks with interactive formats.
The collection includes a few chapters from each of 8 upcoming cozy mysteries by Celeste Connally, Korina Moss, M.C. Beaton (with R.W. Green), Cate Conte,Ellie Alexander, Elizabeth Penney, Diane Kelly, and Donna Andrews. One of the previews is a series debut (set in Regency England) which is always exciting, and there are several veteran authors with new books in very well established series.
All of them are appealing, and all of the included mysteries are reviewed (or scheduled) on my blog. The full mysteries themselves are all in the 4-5 star range, all are entertaining and well crafted. There are some good series releases coming up in 4th quarter 2023 to keep cozy mystery lovers entertained.
Definitely worth downloading the collection to test sample the upcoming books. Four and a half stars for the collection as a whole.
Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes
