Hello, cosy mystery fans. Today, I’m hosting best-selling author, Holly Bell on the blog. She’s one of my favourite authors and has written a fabulous guest post: Holly’s Dream Cast.
We’re celebrating the release of Amanda Cadabra and The Hanging Tree. It’s the seventh book in her fabulous cosy paranormal mystery series, The Amanda Cadabra Cozy Paranormal Mysteries.
I’m excited to have Holly here with me. You’ll find purchase links, book information and an author bio as well as the wonderful dream cast post she’s written for the blog.
So my lovelies, first let me share with you Amanda Cadabra and The Hanging Tree …
What’s Amanda Cadabra and The Hanging Tree about?
Beware The Hanging Tree.
A body discovered in the worst possible place. A day to solve the crime. Detective Inspector Trelawney is compromised, and now his career hangs on the line. Someone is plotting against him … but who?
Only covert witch Amanda Cadabra can uncover the truth, but she must strike a deadly bargain, and travel back in time to dig up the past. But this time will the risk be too great or will The Hanging Tree claim her as its next victim?
Armed with a wand, a pointy hat, and her eternally grumpy cat, Tempest, surely she cannot fail … or will she?

About The Author
Cat adorer and chocolate lover, Holly Bell is a photographer and video maker when not writing. Holly lives in the UK and is a mixture of English, Scottish, Cornish and Welsh, among other ingredients.
Her favourite animal is called Bobby. He is a black cat. Purely coincidental. Of course.
Holly devoured all of the Agatha Christie books long before she knew that Miss Marple was the godmother of the Cosy Mystery. Her devotion to JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings meant that her first literary creation in this area would have to be a cosy paranormal.
Having derived immense delight from the adventure of writing her first book in the Amanda Cadabra Cozy Paranormal Mysteries in 2018. Holly admits that there’s no turning back. Further books are in the pipeline.
Holly loves to hear from readers and she always responds in person.
