Out Now: Riddler’s Edge Book Seven

Hi guys,

It’s first thing in the morning here, and I feel in need of a cup of coffee.  But before I do that, I want to let you know that  Book 7 of the Riddler’s Edge series went live while I was sleeping, and is now available to download.

I need to tell you ahead of time that this one’s going to be a bit of a nail-biter, guys.  Everything with Vlad’s Boys will finally come to a head, and there might be moments where the stress makes you throw your kindles and tablets against the walls.  But hold off doing that, will you?  Firstly, those devices are expensive, and secondly, believe me when I promise you that the nail-biting portion of the book does end on a high note.  You should all (hopefully) be satisfied with the way the story ends.

On a slightly more schmaltzy note,  I’d also like to tell you that I appreciate so much all of the readers who’ve read through the series so far, and signed up for my newsletter or blog to boot.

Wherever you go to keep up to date with my new releases, I’m happy to have you as a reader.

 

Here’s the blurb:

The battle is on …

Aisling and her friends have been trying to find the leader of Vlad’s Boys for a long time. Now, they finally know the truth behind the vampire gang. Unfortunately, they also know that Vlad’s Boys have a new, unknown source of power to rely on, and beating them seems like an impossible task.

But there are other troubling things happening in Riddler’s Edge. Wizards are being murdered in a very unusual way. And Greg – recently turned into a vampire – is enjoying his new life a little bit too much.

They need to find a way to turn their lollipop-loving wizard back into himself again, because without Greg on their side, the fight against Vlad’s Boys might well be lost.

Out Now: Riddler’s Edge Book Six

Happy Friday Everyone,

I’ve got a new release from Riddler’s Edge for you guys.  Book Six in the series is now available to download from Amazon.  Hopefully you all enjoy this one. The next release will be in a few weeks’ time, another tale from Riddler’s Edge, titled A Little Bit Vampy.

 Old-School Witch

Is it ever a good idea to dig up the past?

When a member of the Historical Society is murdered, there’s no magical cause to be found.  If anything, it seems like it might be a case of simple revenge.  But when the society goes on to unveil an old, forgotten school in Riddler’s Edge, it seems that there could be far more to the murder than meets the eye.

Riddler’s Edge School for the Gifted was a safe haven for supernatural children.  So why was the school set on fire in the sixties?  And why has it been forgotten until now?

In order to find the real murderer, Ash and the gang must first find the surviving students.  Along the way, they might just dig up some more secrets, too – like who is really behind the group known as Vlad’s Boys?

And until they find the answers, they have a wedding to organise, a wedding that almost everyone believes is doomed …

Out Now: Wayfair Witches Book 10

Hi all,

Forget Me Knot, the tenth adventure for Wanda Wayfair and her coven, is now available to download on Amazon.  At the beginning of this one, we find that Wanda is not only a Peacemaker, but is also married to Will Berry.  Read the book, and all will be revealed.

Forget Me Knot

All is well in Riddler’s Cove. There’s no crime, no illness, and Wanda Wayfair is engaged to Will Berry, the greatest Minister for Magical Law that the world has ever known.

Hey, wait a minute … that doesn’t sound quite right, does it? Maybe things aren’t going so well in Riddler’s Cove, after all. And if something strange is afoot, well, Wanda sure can’t be the one to solve it, because she doesn’t have an ounce of magic to her name.

When some healers are murdered, and their familiars ask Wanda for help, she begins to wonder: is she really the unempowered witch she believes herself to be? Or is someone changing the world to suit themselves?

The dead healers aren’t the only ones who need help. Two busloads of weredogs have gone missing, on their way to the holiday of a lifetime.

With her coven by her side, can Wanda regain her power? And when she does, will this strange new world finally begin to make sense?

New Release: Riddler’s Edge Book Five

It’s almost Christmas, and the latest release from the Riddler’s Edge series just happens to be a festive tale.  You’d almost think I planned it that way 🙂

So Very Unfae

The holidays are coming.  It’s a time for family, frolics and … mince-pie murders?

All that Aisling wants to focus on this Christmas is how to reunite with her long-lost family, but Riddler’s Edge has other ideas in mind.  When a mince-pie muncher dies at the local holiday market, it seems she might have to put her hopes on hold.

The victim hadn’t just come to Riddler’s Edge to enjoy the festivities.  He had come to see Dylan Quinn, but what they don’t know, is why.

When another man dies – a man who worked for the same, mysterious company as the first victim – it seems clear that there’s a connection.

On the surface of things, these deaths seem like accidents.  Aisling really hopes that they are, because right now, she has other problems – as she works to free her parents, it seems that someone might be trying to scupper her plans.

There’s a lot to overcome if Aisling is ever going to have her perfect Christmas.  But someone as stubborn as her ought to be able to manage it all.  Right?

Out Now: Swotting Up

Hurrah, it’s here!  Book Nine of the Wayfair Witches series is available to download from Amazon today.  I hope you all enjoy it 🙂

The Blurb:

College isn’t quite as much fun as Wanda Wayfair had hoped. But when a dead body turns up in the library, it seems like her crime-solving life might be calling her back.

There’s more at risk, though, than finding the killer. Wanda and the gang also need to track down a Bad, Bad Book – quite possibly the worst book of all.

But as more murders take place, it seems like time might be running out. Will they find the book, and the killer, before an ancient evil is unleashed upon the world?

New Release: Riddler’s Edge Book Four

Shiver Me Witches (Riddler’s Edge Book Four) is now ready to download on Amazon.  I love Halloween, so I had an especially good time writing this one.  I  hope you all enjoy it 🙂

 

The Blurb:

It’s Halloween in Riddler’s Edge, and everyone is having a wonderful time. So wonderful that they don’t seem to care when two women are murdered on Pirates’ Pier.

There’s a strange new magic affecting everyone. Everyone, that is, except Aisling Smith. But without the help of her friends, will she be able to find the killer in time?

Dealing with murder, magically-altered friends, and a fair few ghosts and pirates is going to make for a busy Halloween. But even if Aisling gets through all of that, there will be one more mystery left to solve. A mystery that means more to her than anything.

Will she finally discover what happened to her parents?

It’s available in all Amazon stores, and is free via Kindle Unlimited.  Here are the store links:

New Release: It’s All About Melissa!

Hi everyone,

Seeing as it was time for Melissa to sit the LOL exam and become a legally operating lawyer, I figured she deserved a one-off book of her own.  Legally Red is a full-length, standalone story, and you can read it without having read the rest of  the Wayfair Witches books.

But for those who like to keep up on the timeline, the events of this book take place soon after the events of Acting Up (Wayfair Witches Book 8).  I had great fun spending time with Melissa, and I hope you guys enjoy the read 🙂

Available in all Amazon stores (and free via Kindle Unlimited):

US  UK  DE  FR  ES  IT  NL

JP  BR  CA  MX  AU  IN

 

Legally Red (A Wayfair Witches’ Side Story)

 

Melissa Wayfair might be about to sit the LOL exam, but she sure isn’t laughing about it. Because if she wants to become a legally operating lawyer, then she has to do more than answer a few questions – she also has to clerk under the most obnoxious lawyer known to witch.

While working for Miles Master, Melissa has a lot to contend with. There’s a murder case to solve, there’s a young witch who wants to be emancipated from her parents, and there’s also the slight matter of a broken heart …

But once Melissa has dealt with all of the above, she might have to face her greatest challenge yet – learning how to stand up to her horrible boss.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Out Now: Acting Up

I love it when a plan comes together.  And also when a book is released 🙂  Acting Up (Wayfair Witches Book 8) is available to download now in all Amazon stores.  Hope you guys enjoy this one. The cover and the blurb are below:

Wanda Wayfair does not believe in prophecies…

There’s a murderer on the set of Be My Witch, and Wanda is afraid that all the wrong people are being killed. Because in the vision she saw, Mandy Parker was the one who died.

With the help of the victims’ familiars, Wanda races to solve the case. But can she find the killer before Mandy becomes the next victim?

Wanda really hopes so – because if not, she might have to admit that prophecies can come true, after all

Out Now: Riddler’s Edge Book Three

Phew! I say ‘Phew!’ because, as anyone who read my previous post will know,  there was a weird Amazon technical glitch with this one.  But the season of the glitch is over, and the season of the witch has arrived!  Lucky Witches is now 100% alive, kicking, and ready to  be read 🙂

The cover is now showing up on the product page, so I’m very happy to be able to list the store links at the end of this post.

 

Lucky Witches Book Cover ImageHere’s the blurb:

Just because Detective Quinn is on holiday does not mean that the rest of Riddler’s Edge gets to take a break.

And it definitely doesn’t mean that Aisling misses him.

But even if she did miss him – ever so slightly, mind you – she has far more urgent things to worry about.  Like the fact that every single person the detective asked to look after his lighthouse has met with an unfortunate accident.  Or the fact that a mysterious casino has appeared overnight – and instead of winning money, the gamblers are winning wishes.

These wishes are not all they seem, and as violence and chaos break out, it’s becoming ever more likely that the detective’s lighthouse is keeping a secret of its own …

Out Now: Riddler’s Edge Book Two

I’m so happy this morning, because Witchy see, Witchy Do, the second book in the Riddler’s Edge series, is now available on Amazon 🙂  The third book – Lucky Witches – will be coming this summer.

Riddler’s Edge Book Two: Witchy See, Witchy Do

Book Cover - Riddler's Edge Book TwoThere’s been another unfortunate death in Riddler’s Edge. And just like last time, this one definitely wasn’t a murder.

Or was it?

When Heather Flynn is found hanging from the church bell, it seems clear that she killed herself. But Aisling Smith is convinced otherwise – and not just because it appears that Heather’s death was a resurrection spell gone wrong. There are mysterious symbols painted below Heather’s body – symbols which emit a green glow that only Aisling can see.

It’s Shanty Season in Riddler’s Edge – and seeing as Heather was a member of the local choir, Aisling thinks it might be time to sing for her supper. Well, to sing for her story, anyway.

But when yet another member of the choir is killed, the case gets stranger yet. Aisling and Detective Quinn find themselves involved in the gruesome game of Witchy See, Witchy Do – a game from which no player has ever emerged alive.

As always, it’s free to those in Kindle Unlimited
