A New Cozy Mystery Series from Karen Rose Smith

I have exciting news to share with my readers!  I'm writing the Caprice De Luca home staging mystery series for Kensington Books.  This year, I was given a vote of confidence with a contract for three more.  So Caprice will definitely have a six book series.  But...   I received the wonderful news last week that I have been contracted for a brand new cozy mystery series--DAISY SWANSON'S TEA GARDEN mystery series.  Yes, the books will have a tea garden setting and I'll be serving lots of tea!

I'll unfold more details in the upcoming year, but these novels will be set in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in a fictional small town.  I'll be able to incorporate everything I like best about the Susquehanna Valley, the beautiful country around Lancaster, and the unique crafts in the area.

I love Caprice and will be involved in her books because she's so much like me!  But I already love Daisy, too.  She has a wonderful Aunt Iris who runs the tea garden with her.  She also has two daughters and they have two cats.  (No surprise there!)

Stay tuned for more details.  I chat with my readers on Facebook, Twitter and in my newsletter so you can always know what I'm working on.

Have a wonderful rest of the summer.

My mother's nickname was Daisy , and she raised me with tea at every meal since I was about 7. Sure you didn't know my mom?!?!?

Congrats! What fabulous news! Where I live in upstate NY is also considered to be part of the Susquahana Valley, and it really is beautiful here. (And I can vouch for the crafts, since I run an artist's cooperative shop!)

I am so pleased to hear your news.
