Publication Day – New Release – Book Birthday – Amanda Cadabra and the Rise of Sunken Madley by Holly Bell

Hello Fellow Avid Readers,

Today, I am very excited to announce the release of Amanda Cadabra and the Rise of Sunken Madley, Holly Bell’s latest novel in her Amanda Cadabra Cozy Paranormal Mystery series. An amazing series that I’ve just fallen in love with!

I pre-ordered my copy as soon as I found out about it and will post my review soon. 😉

I love supporting independent authors, especially when they live here in the UK and couldn’t resist the opportunity to help spread the word about this fantastic new cozy paranormal mystery book and hope you become as excited about the whole series as I am.

Enjoy! x


Amanda Cadabra and The Rise of Sunken Madley (Amanda Cadabra Cozy Paranormal Mysteries Book 4)
by Holly Bell

Amanda finds a body at The Grange.  Accident or murder? It matters; she had no alibi.

But a far more serious problem is afoot. Amanda has cast one spell too many against a human. Now there is no stopping the attack of the Flamgoynes on Sunken Madley. When they will strike, who will come to her aid, how she will defend the village, she knows not. The key to her promised Home Guard is the mysterious Viola, whose identity is a secret.

They are coming. Can she buy the intrepid Inspector Trelawney the hour he needs to complete his own dangerous mission? Was it the Flamgoyes who sent her unpleasant family over the Cornish cliff all of those years ago? Can Amanda find Viola in time? In the moment of truth, will she stand alone as her recurring dream shows her? Or will she see The Rise of Sunken Madley?

Action, adventure, humour, spies, ghosts, murder and revelations abound in this climactic tale.

“The tension in this quintessentially English cozy paranormal mystery franchise just stepped up a notch; I couldn’t stop reading”

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.

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 Amanda Cadabra and The Hidey-Hole Truth, there was no turning back. Amanda Cadabra and The Cellar of Secrets quickly followed the first book’s success and book 3, Amanda Cadabra and The Flawless Plan was released in 2019 to the pleasure of fans. The fourth book Amanda Cadabra and The Rise of Sunken Madley is the latest addition to the Amanda Cadabra series and further books are in the pipeline.

Holly loves to hear from readers. Contact her on or her Facebook page. She always responds in person.

Her favourite feline is a black cat called Bobby. He is black. Purely coincidental.
