Melissa Bourbon Ramirez is the author of the Magical Dressmaking cozy mystery series. I read the most recent book, # 5 in the series, A Killing Notion.
The series is still good. The characters and their relationships are still fresh. The romance still draws me in and is sweet without all the mechanisms that are so often employed. The basic mystery is compelling and not a rerun of the other mysteries.
I really enjoyed it.
I've talked about this series here and here.
So far the books in order are:
Pleating For Mercy
A Fitting End
A Custom-Fit Crime
A Killing Notion
Looking forward to the next one.
Kristen Ashley never disappoints me. I read her most recent book, the start of her new Magdalene series, The Will. It's different from her other stuff and yet I loved it just as much.
The main male character is a thrice divorced boxer with 3 kids who lives in the town of Magdalene by the sea. The main female character starts out as a cold, (thought lovable even from the start) classy member of the fashion industry. Their romance sizzles and definitely engaged me.
I've talked about Kristen's work more times than I can list. Here and here are a couple of places.
I follow Kristen like the fangirl I am so you will continue to hear about her work.
