Sara J. Henry writes the Troy Chance Mystery series which started in 2011 and takes place in New York. It features Troy Chance, a young journalist who lives in Lake Placid New York. There are many twists and turns in the novels in this series. This isn't officially classified as a cozy mystery however it is so highly acclaimed that I wanted to add it on the website.
