 A collection of books 4-6 in the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries series plus a novella, The Necklace Affair.

Captain Gabriel Lacey, a half-pay cavalry officer who returns to Regency London after being injured in the Peninsular War, has found some purpose investigating crime. Along with his friend, Lucius Grenville, a dandy who’s one of the wealthiest men in England, Lacey delves into the dark world behind the glittering Regency ballrooms. He’s solved murders and robberies, has assisted Bow Street and the  Thames River Police, and has been pulled into the schemes of a powerful crime lord. In this collection, Captain Lacey takes a post in a boys’ school as well as hunts criminals from Mayfair mansions to the back streets of Covent Garden.

In The Sudbury School Murders, a corpse in a Berkshire canal leads Captain Lacey on a twisted trail of blackmail and corruption in a school for boys of England’s wealthiest families.

In The Necklace Affair, Captain Lacey comes upon a distressed lady at one of Grenville’s soirees, whose innocent maid has been arrested for theft. Lacey hunts for the true thief of the diamond necklace and becomes entangled in a mesh of dark secrets.

In A Body in Berkeley Square, Lacey is called in to solve a murder at a grand society ball. The accused? His mentor and former friend, Colonel Brandon. Colonel Brandon is certainly acting guilty, and only Lacey is willing to prove him innocent.

A Covent Garden Mystery plunges Lacey into a case that hits close to home—girls are going missing in Covent Garden, and one happens to be his daughter.

Join Captain Lacey and his friends as he further investigates intrigue, murder, and villainy in Regency England.

Three witches and their magical cats solve paranormal murder cases in the mystical town of Wonder Falls. From USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Harper Lin

Save and buy the box set that includes THREE complete novels in The Wonder Cats Mysteries. 

A Hiss-tory of Magic (Book 1)

Cath Greenstone, her cousin Bea, and her hippie aunt Astrid live in Wonder Falls, a small town near the mystical Niagara Falls. They run the Brew-Ha-Ha café, and naturally, they’re witches hiding in plain sight along with their three magical cats, Treacle, Peanut Butter, and Marshmallow. 

When Brew-Ha-Ha's baker is burnt to a crisp, along with their beloved café, Aunt Astrid lets out a big family secret: a powerful spell book, a Greenstone heirloom from the Salem days, has been stolen from its secret hiding spot in the café. If it’s fallen into the wrong hands, black magic could destroy not only Wonder Falls but the world. 

A secret society… A new detective with a shady past… A once-bullied local returning to town as a multimillionaire. 

Who in town could know Cath’s family secret? Cath, Bea, and Astrid must use their witch powers to uncover the deadly truth. Cath communicates with their cats, also magically inclined, and they help uncover more than one secret lurking in wonderful Wonder Falls. 

Pawsitively Dead (Book 2)

When Cath visits her parents’ graves, she finds the dead body of the local hairstylist. What’s even stranger is that she also stumbles upon an older corpse, nearly a skeleton, of a woman who died in 1958. It has been exhumed from her grave, but who would do that? 

While the police are stumped, Cath, Bea, and Aunt Astrid suspect sorcery… necromancy… 

Cat-astrophic Spells (Book 3)

Treacle, Cath’s magical black cat, is missing. Meanwhile, in the mysterious town of Wonder Falls, a beloved chocolatier dies. The police deem the cause a heart attack, but Cath, Bea, and Aunt Astrid know something more sinister is at play. And whoever is out there has Treacle.
