These two authors aren't new, but are still putting out cozy's that make me smile.
Sarah Graves series (first is Dead Cat Bounce-lastest book is Crawlspace-her protagonist is always in the middle of house remodel-a nice break from food based books.
Donna Andrews series (first is Murder with Peacocks, the latest is Swan for the Money.) Her protagonist is blacksmith-but mainly features zany family.
Then Margaret Maron's books still feel fresh to me as well.
A Killer Plot by Ellery Adams is good- the main character does NOT own a cat, does NOT cook, is NOT debating between 2 different men. The clues are in haiku and the plot was really good. I liked all the characters and of course the NC setting was great!
Night of the Living Deed by E. J. Copperman has a single mother restoring an old Victorian mansion on the Jersey shore when she discovers that it has two ghosts who had been murdered there. For me this one was interesting and different.
I also liked Buzz Off by Hannah Reed, which is the first in a new cozy series set in Wisconsin featuring an amateur beekeeper. It was probably less, well unique, than Night of the Living Deed, but I enjoyed the beekeeping angle and it had fun characters.
I have already purchased the second in the series for both of these, but I have not read them yet.
I agree, though, that lately many of the cozies read alike. If they didn't generally revolve around a particular place or hobby, I'm not sure I'd remember which series was which.
The Southern Sisters mysteries by Anne George are also lots of fun. Oops, somebody already mentioned them. Well, I agree.
They're a lot of fun, witty rather than knee-slappin' haw-haw hilarious.
They're certainly worth huntin' up!
