Hello, Cozy Readers! I’m currently working on a novella in a new series, Butterfield’s Boutique and Computer Repair, in which two cousins carry on their grandmother’s jewelry shop, fix electronics, and, of course, solve mysteries.

The daughter of one of the cousins adores horses. And that love of horses is central to the overall arc of the series. It’s also a good reason for me to do more research for my books, which I love!

imageI’m doing a lot of reading about horses, which leads me to books like The History and Origins of the Virginia Gold Cup, on the Handmaiden to Genius website. This is also a beautiful book, which keeps bringing me back to librarian Amy Morrison and her love of leather-bound volumes!

Where has your curiosity taken you lately? Are you more of a “wander down the research trail” kind of reader, or do you “race to the finish line” when you’re looking something up?

Sending you cozy wishes,
Tammy D. Walker



Here’s another mystery to check out:

Ribbons of Death by Edita A. Petrick


When once in a Blue Moon myth collides with reality…

Carter is a man who lives for his work. The more dangerous, the better. The more remote, ditto. Anything that’ll keep him on the move; anything that won’t leave him a moment free to reflect on what he gave up, and what he lost due to neglect.

He’s the one that Special Agent Vernon Saunders calls, when he needs a precision tool to remove what threatens the security of the citizens. He’s the one he sends to have a chat with US diplomats overseas, about any alarming developments in their part of the world.
