New Melanie Travis mystery

melanieWhat has more appeal than a dog mystery?  How about a Christmas dog mystery. The Bark Before Christmas (Kensington, 9/2015) is Laurien Berenson’s latest Melanie Travis novel.  With her younger son approaching toddlerhood, Melanie has returned to her old job at a posh private school in Connecticut where she is put in charge of the Christmas Bazaar, the biggest fund-raiser of the year.  Of course the irrepressible Melanie can handle it—along with her newish husband, nine-year-old son and a houseful of poodles.  She is counting on the “Pet Photos with Santa” booth to be a big hit. But when Santa dies and a pet goes missing, Melanie gets a bit frazzled.

Jimmy Vega, Latino detective

vegaSuzanne Chazin’s new series stars Jimmy Vega, a police detective of Puerto Rican descent who was raised in the Bronx.  He now lives and works in Lake Holly, New York, an affluent community north of NYC.  He is divorced with a teen-aged daughter.  Jimmy’s girlfriend, Adele Figueroa is an activist lawyer who runs a non-profit support center for Latinos.  Like Chazin’s Georgia Skeehan series, these are well-written and suspenseful.  An added plus is the realistic glimpse into the problems of undocumented immigrants.  A Blossom of Bright Light (Kensington, 2015), is the second book in this series.  It begins with the discovery of a dead newborn child.   In a disturbing twist, items belonging to Joy, Jimmy’s daughter, are found at a crime scene.
