Carolyn Ezell, writing as Carolyn Breckinridge, has published two mysteries set in Tuscaloosa, “Tuscaloosa Moon” and “Tuscaloosa Boneyard.” While not exactly cozies, these are not grim either.

Those books have earned her the Druid City Arts award for literature. Now we have her first collection of 15 stories, each about and named for the main female character.

Carolyn Ezell, writing as Carolyn Breckinridge, introduced her Tuscaloosa detective Addie Bramson in “Tuscaloosa Moon: A Murder Mystery,” 2013.

Now Bramson is back in “Tuscaloosa Boneyard.”

This title, “Boneyard,” suggests more death and mayhem than the novel actually involves.
