New sequel

"Wonderful story!"

"Kept me guessing until the end."

Can you handle the hidey-hole truth?

'Had me on the edge of my seat holding my breath as well as chuckling out loud.'

A bus goes over a Cornish cliff. A 6-year-old orphan magically lifts a spoon. A 500-year-old house goes bump in the day.

Secret powers, hidden tunnels, ghosts and time-travel all challenge covert witch Amanda Cadabra and her ever-grumpy cat, Tempest, as they take on Sunken Madley Manor.

How low can you go?

The key to a present murder is buried in 1940.

Amanda and her irascible feline are back, dogged by the personable but intractable Inspector Trelawney.

Bombs, spies and a body for witch and familiar. A witness only they can see. The truth in a place where only they can go. 

'Read on and discover the fun of Amanda Cadabra for yourself!' P Tomey, Simon and Schuster

Would you step
this way?

A deadly dance.

An accident waiting to happen. A body, a spy, a saboteur, an uncooperative ghost, multiple puzzles. And Amanda is top of the suspect list.

If only she could trust the attractive but determined Inspector Trelawney who is on Granny's trail.

Can Amanda and her moody magical cat unravel their most complicated case yet before a second murder and her arrest?

"I LOVED THIS STORY!! Holly Bell has done it again!"

Storm in a teacup?

Or something stirring?

Amanda finds a body at The Grange. She has no alibi. These are the least of her problems.

The Flamgoynes are about to attack the village. Only the anonymous Viola can help. How can she be found before the foe strikes?

Can Amanda buy the intrepid Inspector Trelawney time for his mission? In the moment of truth, will she  and her grumpy cat stand alone? Or will she see The Rise of Sunken Madley?

"The tension in the quintessentially English cozy mystery ... just stepped up a notch; I couldn't stop reading."

How good a judge are you ?

What lies beneath?

The cold case of the Cardiubarn murders is on the cusp of being solved.

Now there's new murder in the village and the finger is pointing at Amanda's beloved friend.

The conscientious Inspector Trelawney is doing his best. But only Amanda can plumb the hidden depths and face the perils of what lies beneath, to discover the truth. Just one catch: she has only 24 hours.

"It always kept me guessing whodunit. I couldn't put it down."

Can you take the heat?

Smouldering embers.

Fire on wild Bodmin Moor, murder by impossible means, star-crossed lovers and a most mysterious family.

Who and what is Lucy? What really went on at Grown House school? Who is the killer?

Can Amanda survive her most perilous journey yet into the past, and solve the strange case of Lucy Penlowr.

"Just wow! Brilliantly written"

Beware The Hanging Tree

Would you be roped in?

A body discovered in the worst possible place. A day to solve the crime.

Only covert witch Amanda can uncover the truth but she must strike a deadly bargain.

This time will the risk be too great? Will the Hanging Tree claim her as its next victim?

"Fabulous story!" "I was swept along" "Twisty enough to have me second guessing"


An enchanting page-turner.

Had me chuckling out loud and on the edge of my seat.


It always kept me guessing whodunit. I couldn't put it down.
