It’s back to school for Rev Jess Ward in more ways than one. When an old flame arrives on the island looking to convince the now-famous sleuthing vicar to take part in a sensational new crime documentary series, Jess suddenly finds herself at the centre of her own true crime story.
Another mystery is the last thing Jess needs. She is knee-deep in offerings for the Harvest Festival and the bell ringers appear to be on strike! Add to the mix some clumsy attempts at courting from the school headmaster and more convincing romantic overtures from the handsome blast from the past. All Jess really wants to do is to hide away with a pumpkin spiced latte.
However, with a murderer at large and a film crew following her every move, the cosy night by the fire is going to have to wait. Just how much of her unique investigation style is it safe for her to reveal?
Vestry Vice is the sixth book in the Isle of Wesberrey Series. Find out how Jess tackles the latest mystery on this magical island.

Can you hear them howl?….
HELLHOUNDS, THE ANTHOLOGY with its pickpockets, ghost hunters, and robots hellbent on murder. They hail from Outer Space, Heaven, Hell, Earth, and the inside of a taxidermied dog.
There are guest appearances by the Hackney Hellhounds of London, Ralphie Boy of Iwo Jima, and Sherlock Hound of the Yorkshire Dales.
Rebels spin their shaggy dog tales, the Greek gods wreak havoc, and a little dog waits the other side of the veil, loyal to the end.
We have fantasy, horror, sci-fi, romance, and much more. But—as with HELLCATS, THE ANTHOLOGY—what all these stories have in common is heart. The good guy wins, the bad guy is punished, the best dog gets a bone. Heart.
Because HELLHOUNDS, THE ANTHOLOGY is such a brilliant mash-up of styles we’ve added blurbs before each story so you can choose what you’d like to read. Not every story is for everyone, but I warrant you’ll find more than one tale that tickles your funny bone, or scratches an itch you didn’t know you had, in here.
Revenge, reckoning, and redemption: HELLHOUNDS, THE ANTHOLOGY has it all.

My name is Penelope Cress and I love a good murder. Don’t you?
In fact, there is nothing I like better than snuggling up with a nice cup of tea and some digestive biscuits and watching some Agatha Christie or Midsomer Murders on the television. Or even better reading the latest cosy mystery on the train at the end of a hard day.
