What readers are saying about the PIB paranormal cozy mystery series. "I can’t stop reading the books in this series. Great plots, fascinating characters, intrigue, humor, danger, love......they have it all!" "I needed something to read that wasn't real heavy and macabre to read. I got more than I hoped for with Dionne Lister's Paranormal Investigator book!!! I enjoyed it so much, now that I finished this one, I am going on to the next, then the next..." "I loved it! I laughed at Lily’s snarky sense of humor so much! This was very original and fun to read. Give me more!" "This is a cosy read packed with intrigue, witchcraft and surprises. There are a fantastic array of characters - some to love and others to be extremely wary of. There are some you'll change your mind about as more is revealed. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and definitely look forward to reading more in the series in future." In This Three-Book Box Set: Witchnapped in Westerham: Book 1 All it takes is one morning for Sydney Photographer Lily Bianchi's life to go off the rails and over a cliff. A well-dressed English woman turns up at her door, swearing she's a witch. If that’s not crazy enough, she explains Lily’s brother, James, has been kidnapped and the Paranormal Investigation Bureau needs Lily’s help finding him. And the craziest part? The Englishwoman tells Lily she's a witch too. Before she can say, “Where’s my coffee?” she’s on a plane bound for Westerham, England. Unfortunately, England’s not as welcoming as she hoped--she's barely arrived before she gets set up, arrested and almost shot. Things can only get better from here, right? Yeah, right… Witch Swindled in Westerham: Book 2 Just when Lily’s settling into life in Westerham and making new friends, the Paranormal Investigation Bureau needs her help again. A witch has been misappropriating millions from unsuspecting retirees, but she’s destroyed all the evidence. Lily’s unique witchy skills are the only thing that can uncover the past and get the PIB the evidence it needs. Even though Lily has her own plans, nothing seems to go right. Her fun day in London turns into a devastating collision with her past, and super-hot Agent Crankypants is annoying as hell. He knows all her buttons to press, and she’s not sure if she wants to kiss him or strangle him, or maybe both. Then tracking down the PIB’s suspect puts Lily’s new friendship at risk, and, if that’s not enough, it finally brings Lily face-to-face with death. Can Lily solve the crime before someone dies? And will the universe give her a break before she loses what’s left of her sanity? Unfortunately, coffee alone can’t fix things this time. Witch Undercover in Westerham: Book 3 Deciding to have more fun in Westerham, Lily takes up life-drawing classes with her friend Olivia. But trouble isn't far away; the art teacher goes missing after the second class. Tracking down the art teacher is proving impossible, and the PIB's best lead is murdered before they can find out everything he knows. Yet again, Lily's unique witchy skills are called upon to help. The problem? It's dangerous for her to reveal her talents. She's already the target of a secret organisation intent on kidnapping her, and now those closest to her fear a threat inside the PIB itself. To help solve the case, Lily makes a dangerous choice: to go undercover with no backup. But has she just made a fatal mistake? So much for witches having it easier. Someone pass Lily a cappuccino, but this time, make it a double. Grab this box set for some sassy, fun, well-written, page-turning cozy mysteries.

Witches who unlock mysteries, solve crime, and help those in need. They are collectively a kind of a witch of all trades, because pitching in--or is it witching in-- is what you do in a small town. Everyone helps out. Even Grandma Vi the ghost investigates and sleuths. But when everyone pulls together, it's not always in the same direction!

With their intimate settings, subdued action and likeable characters, cozy mysteries are rarely seen as anything more than light entertainment. The cozy, a subgenre of crime fiction, has been historically misunderstood and often overlooked as the subject of serious study. This anthology brings together a groundbreaking collection of essays that examine the cozy mystery from a range of critical viewpoints. The authors engage with the standard classification of a cozy, the characters who appear in its pages, the environment where the crime occurs and how these elements reveal the cozy story's complexity in surprising ways. Essays analyze cozy mysteries to argue that Agatha Christie is actually not a cozy writer; that Columbo fits the mold of the cozy detective; and that the stories' portrayals of settings like the quaint English village reveal a more complicated society than meets the eye.

Book One - Dying To Win Holly Bridges had always dreamed of having her own stable. While out for a drive in the country, she found a farm with a large indoor arena and several outdoor arenas. Even though it looked like it hadn't been used in years, it was the perfect location for holding equestrian shows and stabling horses. Shortly after opening, Holly managed to acquire a prominent local's horse as her first boarder. With the new tenant it looked like Happy Hollow Stable's first equestrian show could be a huge draw for the locals. Well, that is until a dead body showed up in a nearby field. Will the show go on or will Holly have to give up her lifelong dream? Book Two - Kill Them With Kindness While celebrating the windfall of her very expensive Hanoverian gelding, Rufus, the old barn cat, showed up sick. When Holly realized that she hadn't chosen a vet for any of the animals, her assistant suggested that try the local Veterinarian in Hill City. After seeing the vet, Rufus wasn't getting any better, so Holly made a follow up appointment to have him checked out again. Shortly after their arrival at the vet's office she found the doctor dead. Did the Veterinarian die of natural causes or could it have been murder? Book Three - Old Dog New Tricks Holly was just getting settled in at Happy Hollow Stables when she found herself being adopted by a German shepherd that showed up looking for food. Since the dog arrived without a collar or any type of identification, she took him to the local vet to help search for his owner. The vet checked him for a microchip, but couldn't find anything. Since she was unable to locate his owner, Holly decided Happy Hollow Stables could be his new home away from home until his owner could be found. Soon after the dog got familiar with his new surroundings, Holly discovered he seemed to have yet another secret. How will she find out what it is?
