Food appears front and center in many of the cozy mysteries that I so love. I decided to share some of my favorites:
Joanna Carl's "Chocoholic" mystery series, with protagonist Lee McKinney as manager of her Aunt Nettie's chocolate shop (all handmade chocolates!).
Laura Child's "Tea Shop Mysteries", where the protagonist, Theodosia Browning, owns a tea shop in Charleston, SC.
Mary Jane Clark's "Piper Donavon/Wedding Cake Mysteries" series.
Cleo Coyle's "Coffeehouse" mystery series, with protagonist Clare Cossi as manager of the historic New York City coffeehouse "Village Blend", owned by her elegant ex-mother-in-law.
Joanne Fluke's "Hannah Swensen Mystery Books", where the protagonist owns a delightful bakery in Lake Eden, MN.
Katherine Hall Page's "Faith Fairchild" series, where the protagonist is a caterer/minister's wife.
