May New Mystery Releases & Book Deals

In Georgia, we've had a beautifully mild start to May. I hope it continues through to the end of the month, when you'll find me sitting in a stadium watching my youngest graduate high school. Historically it's hotter than blue blazes or raining cats and dogs Memorial Day weekend. While I'm holding seats and waiting for the ceremony to start, you better believe I'll be reading! At least untill family arrives. :)

Here are my writing friends' new mystery releases & book deals for May! Check back mid-month to see if I've added books! Look for cozy mysteries, mystery thrillers, humorous mysteries, woman sleuth, and amateur sleuth mysteries.
