Leg Publication Font People in nature Thigh

with an out-of-this-world twist!

Your next favorite British cozy…
but with a hint of the paranormal.

You’re going to fall in love with Kate Benedict. Kate’s a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed upstart architect who solves mysteries in lively London. But this seemingly run-of-the-mill traditional cozy lead has a superpower of sorts up her sleeve: she sees auras that swirl above people’s heads when they’re about to die. These mysterious, death-predicting omens are challenging—since no one ever believes Kate when she tries to warn them. And big-hearted Kate just can’t help but help them avoid the unthinkable—at all costs. Now available as a complete box set, this irresistible murder mystery series is a guaranteed addiction for international suspense armchair travelers, traditional cozy lovers, anglophiles, and anyone who likes their cozy female sleuths smart, savvy, and a tad psychic.
Life spins out of control for Kate Benedict when she begins seeing a dancing aura above certain people’s heads that seems to signal death. Suddenly she’s psychic. But psychic’s not acceptable in her circle, where the supernatural is strictly for the superstitious. Yet…people close to her are dying. Kate's attempts to discuss her new-found metaphysical gift are met with eye rolls; she can’t even tell the Scotland Yard detective who's investigating the death of her close friend, Rebecca. And now Rebecca’s neighbor has an aura.
Two politicians have the death-predicting auras Kate can see. The only way to get to the two pols is via her old friend, DCI Clarke; yet her warnings go unheeded, and even her best friend, Anita, refuses to believe in the auras’ existence—even when one appears over her boss. And then Anita develops her own aura.
A quiet dinner date with an old friend turns into a manhunt when Kate arrives at the rendezvous just in time to find her friend Ethan disappearing into a taxi. Kate is alarmed to see the distinctive swirling pattern above his head. A series of cryptic text messages send Kate searching for Ethan at his sister’s house in Florence, but whatever danger threatened Ethan in London has followed Kate to Italy—his sister Claire has a matching aura!
Kate is off to a glamorous weekend party in Scotland at the formerly grand castle belonging to the uncle of her boyfriend Josh. But the festive occasion turns solemn when Kate notices an aura above the head of Josh’s beloved Uncle Fergus. Thus is the scene set for a deliciously traditional British cozy with a touch of the paranormal thriller—complete with ghostly characters from the past; medieval weapons collection; a ruined, closed-off wing of the castle; a castleful of dodgy house guests, all wrapped up in mysterious Scottish gloom… warmed by a cozy library fire and a nearly priceless collection of single malt scotches.
It looks like a plum job for architect Kate Benedict—she’s been sent to Amsterdam to repurpose an ancient mansion, happily assigned to work with an old friend. But it's a catastrophe—nearly everyone involved has an aura. The team hears voices in empty rooms and discovers hidden passageways, and Kate knows the house conceals a secret. One that someone will kill to keep.
Harried, overworked architect Kate Benedict has no sooner stepped off the ferry to a tiny, remote island in Seychelles, primed to de-stress and celebrate at a destination wedding, than she spots imminent danger – auras spinning above the heads of two people on the dock. One’s a stranger, but the other’s the groom! Evidence is mounting that a murderer lurks amid the serene natural beauty. Until they can find the murderer, Kate and Josh have to keep the groom safe and fend off the worst wedding crasher ever – Death!

Fans of Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone, Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, and Lisa Lutz’s The Spellman Files will get a kick out of the Alvarez clan.

A groom arrested for murder puts a crimp in any wedding, no matter who designs the bridal gown. The nuptials of Lee Alvarez’s best friend is threatened, so Lee goes south of the border in search of the real killer. And maybe a little romance. Or is it a case of When Cupid’s Wings Start Flapping, Take Cover?

Competitive foot racers are dropping like flies, which sends Lee Alvarez to Vegas disguised as a dancer in a lounge lizard’s act. When she uncovers a multi-million dollar betting syndicate killing off the competition, it’s time to hit the ground running in the Alvarez Family’s race with death.

Moon Squadron

Aircraft Cloud Poster Font Aerospace manufacturer


This was Winston Churchill's terse directive to the secret organisation set up in London in 1940.

It's name was the S.O.E: Special Operations Executive. Its purpose was ‘to co-ordinate all action by way of subversion and sabotage against the enemy overseas.’

On nights when the moon was full, aircraft were flown across the channel, and landed behind enemy lines without lights on grass fields and improvised airstrips as short as 150 yards.

They were known as the 'Moon Squadron'. Over the course of a few years, they flew some of the most hazardous missions of the war.

In 'Moon Squadron' Jerrard Tickell tells the story of the‘gentlemen of the shade’, whose courage and fighting spirit helped turn the tide of WWII, and bought invaluable aid to the resistance fighters of occupied Europe. It is a book that no one interested in World War Two will want to miss.
