Miss Hart and Miss Hunter Investigate (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: A mansion, a title and marriage to a wealthy Lord – Lady Eveline Cartwright has it all. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to prevent her being bludgeoned to death one night in the study of Merisham Lodge, the family’s country estate in Derbyshire.

Suspicion quickly falls on her ne’er-do-well son, Peter, but not everyone in the household is convinced of his guilt. Head kitchen maid Joan Hart and lady’s maid, Verity Hunter, know that when it comes to a crime, all is not always as it seems.

With suspicions and motives thick on the ground, Joan and Verity must use all the wit and courage they possess to expose a deadly murderer who will stop at nothing to achieve their aim…

Murder at Merisham Lodge is the first in a new series of historical mysteries, Miss Hart and Miss Hunter Investigate, set in the 1930s. The author, Celina Grace, is the creator of the bestselling The Kate Redman Mysteries and The Asharton Manor Mysteries, as well as several standalone thrillers.

Praise for Celina Grace by Amazon and Goodreads reviewers:

"Thoroughly enjoyed this read. I've been waiting for this story since the first of the Asharton novellas was published and I am very glad to see more of Joan and Verity. I think they are a great mystery team. Smart and active, but in a believable way. You don't ever wonder how they could do what they do within the confines of their social roles and their "real" jobs are never thrown to the side."

"Celina makes her characters someone you care about. I enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes mysteries, especially period mysteries."

" I love her writing style. This book does not disappoint. A great mix of mystery, humor and wonderful characters. All in a beautiful Manor. Very enjoyable read."

"I have read the four Asharton Manor books and enjoyed them all, but the first story that introduced Joan and Verity was my favorite and I am so glad the author wrote another story with the two of them. This time period is very interesting to me and then to throw in a couple murders to solve makes it extra interesting. I hope to read more about Joan, Verity and ( maybe Inspector Marks ?) in future books."

An Isle of Man Cozy Mystery (15 Book Series)
From Book 1: Aunt Bessie assumes that she'll have the beach all to herself on a cold, wet, and windy March morning just after sunrise, then she stumbles (almost literally) over a dead body.

Elizabeth (Bessie) Cubbon, aged somewhere between free bus pass (60) and telegram from the Queen (100), has lived her entire adult life in a small cottage on Laxey beach. For most of those years, she's been in the habit of taking a brisk morning walk along the beach. Dead men have never been part of the scenery before.

Aunt Bessie assumes that the dead man died of natural causes, then the police find the knife in his chest.

Try as she might, Bessie just can't find anything to like about the young widow that she provides tea and sympathy to in the immediate aftermath of finding the body. There isn't much to like about the rest of the victim's family either.

Aunt Bessie assumes that the police will have the case wrapped up in no time at all, then she finds a second body.

Can Bessie and her friends find the killer before she ends up as the next victim?

The Ronald Rowntree Mysteries (3 Book Series)
From Book 1:

Who killed Old Pete?

Ronald Rowntree lives a fairly mundane life. Not only does he manage The Jolly Jester Public House, he lives above it too. One morning, he is readying himself for another ordinary day when his assistant, Sam, interrupts his breakfast, ranting about a corpse he’s just found in the saloon bar.

A little put out by this unexpected turn of events, Ronald takes a look, but soon finds himself the chief suspect in a particularly gruesome murder. With the police seemingly convinced of his guilt, Ronald is forced to investigate the murder himself, and that is where the problems start.

Faced with a crime that no one, apart from him, could have committed, or had reason to, let alone the opportunity, he struggles to make headway. He does, however, find out that all is not what it seems in the Village of Duckley. Certainly not Adam Gosling, the owner of The Jolly Jester, or his wife, Abby. Fred Arkwright of Arkwright’s Chest Emporium is not to be trusted, and nor is Trudy Lane, landlady of The Dog and Duck.

Drawn into the murky underworld of drink, drugs and lust-filled affairs, Ronald finds allies where he least expects them as he attempts to clear his name.

Can he prove he is innocent of the murder at the Jolly Jester?

Enjoy this laugh-out-loud dozy mystery as Ronald blunders from one crisis to the next.

The Penny Detective Series (14 Book Series)
From Book 1:

Introducing the Penny Detective

As private detectives go, Morris Shannon is not up there with the likes of Poirot or Sherlock Holmes. He is considering giving up detecting and buying a high-class fish and chip van business when Karl Ashford walks into his office and changes those plans forever.
From recovering stray cats and dogs for their owners and taking pictures of dangerous cracks in pavements, he is plunged into a brutal murder investigation that has more twists and blind alleys than..............something with quite a lot of twists and blind alleys. Backed up by his alcoholic and seldom sober sidekick Shoddy, Morris chases the truth through the backwaters of Merseyside, determined to get his man.
The Penny Detective will keep you in suspense until the last page, and provide a few laughs along the way, as you begin to see just how useless at detecting Morris is.
Step into the shady and utterly grubby world of Morris and Shoddy as they take on the first proper case they have ever investigated, and see if you can guess who the killer is because that just maybe the only way that you get to find out.
This is the first book in the Penny Detective series.

The Irene Adler Trilogy (5 Book Series)
From Book 1: When Irene Adler, Holmes and Moriarty meet, the result will be mighty explosive!

Ruthless? Depraved? Criminal? This is how Irene Adler, “the Woman”, has been portrayed by Dr Watson in the chronicles of Sherlock Holmes. In this case book, she will have the chance to tell her own story for the first time.

When, as an impoverished actress, her most precious possession is stolen, she vows to get it back, at any cost. And so she does, and gets away with the villain’s wallet for good measure. This is the first of her misdeeds, and it leads to a chain of others... some minor, some less so...

She teams up with some other like-minded bohemians, and together they create the Club des As, the Aces’ Club. They aren’t mere criminals but rather Equalisers! Campaigners against the Idle Rich and other parasites!

They embark upon a number of ventures: stealing a diamond from a fraudulent Countess; walking off with the Pre-Raphaelite artist Millais’ latest masterpiece from under the very nose of Sherlock Holmes...

But as well as these ambitious thefts, they put their skills to use in defending the rights of those that the forces of the Law in Victorian Britain ignore... such as the Gipsy family whose children are disappearing...

When Irene’s gay friend, Lord Clarihoe is blackmailed by an ex-lover, she hoodwinks Holmes in court, where he has been summoned as an expert on Graphology.

Sometimes, her schemes put her in danger, as when King Sigsmund of Bohemia plots to have her killed, and she has to take the unexpected action of teaming up with her nemesis Sherlock Holmes.

Though they started as enemies, Irene also helps Holmes solve many cases, such as the mystery of the Red-Headed League. When the evil Professor Moriarty enters the scene, and lures them to the Reichenbach Falls, both “the Woman” and the Great Detective will be fighting for their lives.
