What a lot of new authors to try! I love to read mysteries and I run out of authors long before I run out of books!
A few of my favorites already listed above are:
Diane Mott Davidson
Sue Grafton's earlier Alphabet Series (I haven't read any of her recent ones)
Jonathan Kellerman & his wife Faye Kellerman
Janet Evanovitch (her one,two, three series)
Now I have many other authors to explore! Thanks!!

“Other creatures receive food simply as fodder. But we take the raw materials of the earth and work with them—touch them, manipulate them, taste them, glory in their heady smells and colors, and then, through a bit of alchemy, transform them into delicious creations.”
― Judith Jones, The Tenth Muse: My Life in Food
