Cozy crime stories

hopeIn Pushing up Daisies by M. C. Beaton, a real estate developer, who outraged his village by proposing to build estate housing on the site of the community garden, is found dead.  A man with that many enemies allows for plenty of red herrings for Agatha Raisin to sort through.  The “twisty plot, eccentric characters and English country setting” add up to bliss for cozy mystery readers (Publishers Weekly).  In The Queen’s Accomplice by Susan Elia MacNeal, , a killer called the “Blackout Beast’ is using the wartime darkness to commit his crimes.  When MI5 recruits become his victims, plucky Maggie Hope (Her Majesty’s Spy) is put on the case.  Her escapades “never disappoint (Kirkus Reviews).” Also, don’t forget  Closed  Casket, the new Hercule Poirot mystery by Sophie Hannah
