Amanda Cadabra and The Flawless Plan (Amanda Cadabra Mysteries #3) By Holly Bell

Fun cozy. Amanda Cadabra and The Flawless Plan (Amanda Cadabra Mysteries #3) Magical escapism with nary a hint of reality! Love these books! Amanda Cadabra and The Flawless Plan (Amanda Cadabra Mysteries #3) Not floorless

I want to know what happens but would like to not have to keep painstakingly covering unnecessarily detailed trips into Amanda's childhood.

Fair enough to set the background in the initial two novels but we're drawing it out a little excessively at this point... we know Senara and Peran enough to understand what they would and wouldn't encourage...

I think I am missing something with the humour a few over the top surnames and village names doesn't really qualify it as a humorous novel... we c
British can, and frequently do, do far, far better than this. Amanda Cadabra and The Flawless Plan (Amanda Cadabra Mysteries #3) Love this series of books

An accident waiting to happen. Sunken Madley village church hall seems safe enough for a dance class. Now there’s a body. Or is it two? Only ghosts for witnesses. Covert witch Amanda and her grumpy feline familiar must look for answers in the past. But whose past?

With a spy, a saboteur, an uncooperative ghost, multiple puzzles ,and herself as the number one suspect she’s going to need backup.

There’s only one choice: the personable but intractable Inspector Trelawney. Only if Amanda can dare to trust him can they survive and solve the case before the murderer strikes again.

But who, in this peaceful English village would resort to murder?

In the words of Grandpa: ‘This one is going to be more complicated than the last one. Possibly ... probably. Definitely.’ Amanda Cadabra and The Flawless Plan (Amanda Cadabra Mysteries #3)

I received a free copy of Amanda Cadabra and the Flawless Plan for an honest review. I LOVED THIS STORY!! Holly Bell has done it again! Amanda is off on another adventure with her familiar, Tempest. Amanda is working on a repair job when she finds out that she is being watched. She turns to her Uncle Mike for help, and he recruits the Inspector to help Amanda out. Of course, they must both learn to trust each other, and the Inspector is learning to accept some changes in himself. With all of the mysteries and unknown spies around, will they survive? Grandpa and Granny are trying to help, but trouble isn't far away.
Holly has done an amazing job with the next part in this series. You can not help but love and support Amanda, the Inspector, and the residents of Sunken Madley. I kept finding myself reading just one more page. So hard to stop and do other things. This story keeps you hooked from the beginning, and at the end you are wanting and waiting for the next one. Keep up the great work Holly! I strongly recommend the entire series. Amanda Cadabra and The Flawless Plan (Amanda Cadabra Mysteries #3) The old barn

Awesome. What a great read to add to the others. A wonderful plot of magic, murder and conspiracies. The characters are enthralling and the romance is very olde worlde which charms the reader even more.
The rector has decided to use the old barn as a dance studio and thus fund the repairs needed to bring it up to scratch. However even though she is worried about the floor supports (the original builders left each construction with enough flaws to be called back time and time again for repairs) but tells the rector that she will have someone look at them. Especially after viewing several deaths caused by the floor and the ghosts that are left. But she is more worried about the remark made that someone is spying on her. With Mike on holiday, the Inspector is called back into action. Ghosts, acid, murder and magic ensue as they try to figure out who is the killer and the spy whilst also trying to delve into the past and the fatal mini bus accident. Amanda Cadabra and The Flawless Plan (Amanda Cadabra Mysteries #3) Another Magical Adventure In Sunken Madley - I didn't want to leave.

I really love Holly Bell’s writing style; it’s easy to read with intelligent prose and engaging plot-lines that is sprinkled with gentle humour. Her series centres around the purely fictional Sunken Madley which Ms Bell has populated with a host of captivating characters that I found completely believable. In other words, it's quintessentially English!

I have fallen in love with our main characters and am enjoying watching them grow throughout this book; our resilient heroine Amanda Cadabra has got all the qualities that I look for in a female lead (she’s definitely got gumption) and Detective Thomas Trelawney is intelligent and a worthy hero. I can’t talk about our main characters without mentioning my favourite feline, Tempest; he’s Amanda’s familiar and just steals the scenes that he’s in.

With each book, we learn more about the villagers and of Sunken Madley itself; The Flawless Plan features characters from the first two books as well as new villagers and visitors alike. Ms Bell writes her characters with many of the foibles that I see in my family, friends and the people around me. I think that this make her characters more believable for me; I feel I know them which means that it’s much easier to get caught up in the adventure.

I love that this story kept me guessing; there are a few mysteries for our heroine, Amanda, to solve within these pages, but fear not dear reader, no frustrating cliffhangers here (Woohoo!) and there are enough twists and turns during this tale to satisfy any Miss Marple wannabe. ;-)

I loved the fact that Amanda Cadabra and the Flawless Plan had me holding my breath on the edge of my seat, had me feeling all warm and mushy, reaching for the tissues to dry my tears as well as smiling and chuckling out loud.

There wasn’t anything about this story that niggled or didn’t work for me, hence the high rating.

I would just like to take this opportunity to say that much of the world building relating to the amazing history and somewhat mystical properties of Sunken Madley, including Amanda’s standing in the village, how and why the locals have a special place in their hearts for her was beautifully platformed throughout the first book. Jumping straight in with The Flawless Plan may mean that new readers could feel a bit perturbed about this aspect of life in the small village for Amanda.

Also, as this is only the third book in a series there are still questions left to answer about Amanda’s family, her connection to Detective Trelawney and what the future may hold. In my opinion, this is a good thing as it leaves enough of a hook to ensure you're keen to keep reading.

You can read my full review on my WordPress blog, Flora's Musings... Amanda Cadabra and The Flawless Plan (Amanda Cadabra Mysteries #3) Rarely have I enjoyed a book series more.

Since I lived there as a child, I’ve been captivated by all things British. In fact, I set aside all but the absolutely necessary and binged the six books in the series so far. As of this writing, Amazon incorrectly repeats Book 1 as Book 7, leaving me bitterly disappointed when I finished Book 6 and immediately wanted to plunge ahead.

The books are delightful. I both feared for the characters’ well-being and laughed along with them. The books are somewhat unusual in the genre because the protagonist isn’t an orphan, hasn’t had her life implode, and doesn’t inherit a bookstore/bakery/mansion/bed and breakfast from an unknown, wealthy relative. She doesn’t come upon her abilities suddenly and with surprise when she turns 16 or 18 or by accident. The books grow gradually and very naturally, expanding along their own storyline while creating new mysteries to be solved, without the repetition of essentially the same theme in book after book after book, ad nauseam.

They are timelessly British. The language and interaction between the characters is formally polite while maintaining affection and familiarity, with little modern popular language to spoil the mood. In other words, courteously old fashioned but set in today’s world. I also congratulate the author on her vocabulary.

The author manages to create depth in each character that I was able to relate to - I would seriously consider moving to Sunken Madly if it actually existed. The languages breathe life into the stories, and the names of places and people deserve a special mention for their creativity. Kudos, too, to the characters for drinking positive gallons of tea and the author’s lovely description of what is included in each meal. What truly British book could realistically leave out these details?

I not only highly recommend this entire series, I am waiting with baited breath for the next book. It can’t come soon enough. And, although he’s not quite a Tempest, my own ‘iddle bo fluffums may need a very special treat, just because.

FYI: To avoid writing six separate reviews, I shall be submitting this one for each of the other five books. I started the next immediately after finishing the previous one and didn’t want to stop my enjoyment of the read. Amanda Cadabra and The Flawless Plan (Amanda Cadabra Mysteries #3) Wonderful

I'm such of fan of Holly Bell after reading the Amanda Cadabra books. The books are cozy paranormal mysteries but with more depth than a typical short cozy. The books definitely built up the series plot with each book. Book one in the series lays a strong foundation for the entire series. Each book has a plot that concludes at the end of the book but there is a overall plot that drops more more clues along the way. The books are beautifully written descriptive language. The use of British English gives the books the feel of being in England. The flashbacks to the past are expertly written with the feeling of truely traveling back in time.
