New Release: So You Think You Can Dance?

Well, I think it’s officially autumn (the weather tells me so, anyway) which means it’s time for the release of Time Witch Book Three. I hope you guys enjoy cozying up with this one. As always, it’s free for those in Kindle Unlimited, and I’ve listed the store links and the blurb below. Happy reading 🙂

So You Think You Can Dance?

Book Cover for: So You Think You Can Dance?Death at the dance class …

As August draws to a close, Essie has a lot to contend with. She has an irritating ailment, she has no idea where Julian is, and Captain Wood has been ignoring her all summer long. So, when the insurance company gets a tip-off about a possible murder, she’s almost glad of the distraction. She and Seb set out to investigate a dance class, where they hope to find the answers. Essie’s never been a brilliant dancer, but in the supernatural style known as Not Strictly Ballroom, she may have found her niche.

When the class’s best dancer – and the chief murder suspect – has an unfortunate accident, Essie has to take her place. Her new dance partner could be a killer, or at the very least an accessory, but one thing Essie is certain of is that he’s a monumental jerk.

When yet another murder occurs, Essie and Seb are no closer to the truth. With the help of their family and friends, they begin to suspect that there is a lot more to this dance class than meets the eye. Could the missing Trent brother, Grady, be hiding in plain sight?

Essie hopes that the upcoming competition will lead her to the answers, but what if she’s dancing with death?

New Release: So You Think You’re a Sleuth?

Book Two of the Time Witch Series is here – let the adventures of Essie and Marbles continue.

Here’s the blurb:

Essie’s always wanted a sister, but she didn’t imagine that their first meeting would involve finding a body on the shore. When Essie recognises the dead woman, a new mystery unfolds.

Belinda, Essie’s sister, has quite enough on her mind without adding murder to the mix. The man she’s engaged to has begun to display some warlock-like tendencies. He also happens to be heading up the investigation into the death of the woman found on the shore.

Belinda’s not the only one with man trouble. Julian Trent insists he’s innocent, and Essie wishes she could believe him, but she can’t let herself get sucked in for a second time. She’s discovering more about their bond, about the history of Time Witches, and about her own vast power. She’s also getting closer to Sebastian, and becoming friends with Kim. The last thing she needs is to carry on caring for Julian.

Can Essie balance new family, a new mystery, and get to grips with her Time Witch powers? Find out in So You Think You’re a Sleuth?

I hope you guys enjoy this one. The conclusion of the series, So You Think You Can Dance? will be on its way this autumn. The store links for this latest one are below:

New Release: Lost Christmas

So, there’s a new story out today, a standalone Christmas Cozy, featuring Ariadne and her familar, Tigger. Some of you might remember them from Wayfair Witches: All Hallowed Out. In this story, they’re travelling to visit friends for the holidays when they get whisked away to a strange new land, and tasked with solving a mystery.

I hope you all enjoy the book.  It was a fun story to write, and the cat gets a few chapters to himself in this one.

The blurb and store links are listed below. It’s on special offer at 99c right now, and is free to read in Kindle Unlimited.

Lost Christmas

Book Cover Lost ChristmasA Magical Christmas Cozy from the world of A.A. Albright. Lost Christmas is a standalone mystery, featuring a shy witch, a chatty cat, and a happy ending.

On their way to visit friends for the holidays, Ariadne and her cat are whisked away to a strange new place: the legendary land of the Lost Enclave.

They’ve been taken against their will, along with two other people: a handsome wizard called Chris, and a chef called Molly.

Ariadne, Chris and Molly are now prisoners of the cruel Queen Clara, a queen who enjoys nothing more than beheading her enemies. And she has brought them here for a reason.

The castle’s cook was murdered with a poisoned mince pie, and the king is missing. Ariadne’s task is to find out who intended to kill the queen. Chris’s task is to unlock the castle’s vault, and obtain the mysterious Star for Queen Clara. And Molly’s job is to replace the dead cook.

When the king, too, is found dead, the mystery deepens. Can Ariadne, Tigger and her new friends discover what truly happened to the king and the cook? They would like to know what the Star is, too, before Chris unlocks the vault – could it give the horrible queen even more power?

In the Lost Enclave, Ariadne, Tigger and their new friends have lost their freedom. They must solve the mystery and escape in time for the holidays, or they might lose Christmas, too.

Book Description for An Electric Engagement

When a dead body vanishes before her eyes, Wanda thinks things can’t get any worse. But soon, people who are one hundred percent alive are disappearing, too. 

Melissa and Eddie have been taken, and Wanda believes their disappearance might be connected to a mysterious organisation called the Grove, who are about to hold one of their Dark Arts Auctions. Wanda and the gang must discover the Grove’s whereabouts before they can save their friends. Luckily, there’s a very small elephant (but he much prefers to be called a miniphant) to help them in their quest. They might just have another unknown helper, too.

While all of this is going on, it’s a little difficult for Will to find the right moment to pop the question – especially since the Grove seem to want to get hold of him, too. Can Will and Wanda save everyone, beat the Grove at their game, and finally get engaged? Find out in An Electric Engagement.

Happy reading 🙂

New Release: A Mindful Murder

The first book of Wanda’s new adventure begins! The Magnetic Magic Mysteries will be a short series, and I hope you enjoy Wanda and Will’s journey as they finally get together. Of course, there’ll be a murderous bump or two along the road, but it’ll all come good in the end. As always, it’s available for free in Kindle Unlimited.

Book Description for A Mindful Murder

When Wanda Wayfair’s favourite yoga teacher is killed, there are many suspects. Luckily for Wanda, she has a special talent when it comes to investigating the murder of a witch.

Wanda is a Wayfarer, and when a witch is murdered, their familiar seeks Wanda out so they can solve the case together. But another Wayfarer has recently arrived on the scene, and she’s far more popular than Wanda.

Will Wanda get the case – and, if she does, will she prove herself worthy?

Wanda has a few other problems on her mind. She’s just started a new job, the guy she’s crazy about seems to be ignoring her, and there’s a mysterious delay in the construction of the town’s new school. But hopefully, with the help of her coven and her familiar, Dizzy, she’ll be able to cope with it all.

New Release: Wayfair Witches Book Sixteen

Spring has most definitely sprung hereabouts, which means it’s time for the release of the sixteenth book in the Wayfair Witches series. Although this is the last book in this particular story-line/series, more is coming from Wanda and the gang.

For now, here’s the blurb and the store links for Unhappening Ever After.

Unhappening Ever After

In a new world, Wanda Wayfair is solving an old mystery …

When a rat called Dudley O’Mara tells Wanda that someone has murdered his witch, Wanda is hit with a strong sense of déjà vu. Déjà vu isn’t unusual for Wanda – she’s experienced it throughout her life, and finally, she is about to discover the reason.

Soon after Dudley’s visit, a second murder occurs, and it is just as eerily familiar as the first – a janitor is killed, and a dangerous magical object is missing from the scene. History seems to be repeating itself, in a most disturbing way. Can Wanda remember the lessons of her past in time to solve the mysteries of her present? And what exactly did she and the Queen do in order to bring Max home?

Out Now: The Infernal Artefacts Book Three

Well, I said that the third book of Ned’s trilogy would be coming soon, and I meant it. Dancing with the Dead is available to download now. And as always, it’s free to read via Kindle Unlimited.

Dancing with the Dead

Halloween has arrived, and so has an invitation – Ned’s been invited to the Dance of the Dead.

Ned is certain it’s a trap. She wants to find another way to win this fight. But when people she cares about are kidnapped, it looks like she’ll have to take the bait.

In a mansion filled with ghosts and Servants, Ned must confront the mysteries of her past, and learn who she can trust in her present. The most important thing she’ll learn, though, is who the Spellcaster really is.

When the truth is revealed, will Ned be able to fight the Spellcaster, and escape the Unhallowed Hall alive?

Out Now: A Grave Situation

Hi all,

The second book in the Infernal Artefacts Trilogy is out today. I really hope you enjoy it – it was a lot of fun learning about zombie lore for this one. The final book of the trilogy will be coming very, very soon.

Book Two: A Grave Situation

It’s getting closer to Halloween, and bodies are disappearing from the cemetery known as the Unhallowed Ground.

Once again, Ned is thrown together with Shane Moore as she works to help the Wayfarers track down the grave robbers.  The Wayfarers think there’s a simple explanation for what’s happening, but Ned has other ideas.

The Spellcaster may have been caught, but the gruesome work carries on.  Is the right person in jail, or have Ned and the Wayfarers been tricked?  If only Angelica would talk to Ned, this mystery might be easier to solve – but in Witchfield prison, Angelica is experiencing some problems of her own.

Now that she has returned her memories of Shane, Ned has some decisions to make.  The past they shared seems too important to put behind them – but does Shane feel the same?

Double Release Day

Hi All,

If you’re just about to enjoy a few days off for the holidays, then here are a couple of new books of mine to sit down and read.   The first is number fifteen in the Wayfair Witches series, and the second is Dead Like Ned, the first book in my new Infernal Artefacts Trilogy.

In Wanda Wayfair’s tale, she’s experiencing some testing times, trying to pass her examinations, all while solving the murder of one of the examiners.  This is the second last in Wanda’s series, with the finale coming next spring.

In Dead Like Ned, Ned Marvin inherits a set of artefacts from her long-dead father, turning her world upside down. One of the artefacts, a dagger, is missing, and it may just be a murder weapon. Luckily for Ned, she’s got her snarky cat, Cleo, to help her solve the mystery.  Book Two is on pre-order, and Book Three will be soon to follow.

Both books are in Kindle Unlimited, and are 99c from now until Christmas Eve.  Happy Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy Reading!
