One Spoonful of Trouble

The Mysteries of Bell & Whitehouse 1

When Felicity Bell expresses the wish there were more to life than working in the family bakery, she didn’t know her wish would come true so soon. Suddenly the small town of Happy Bays is confronted with a crime wave the likes of which she’s never seen. The main culprit seems to be big shot reporter Rick Dawson, and soon the two are at daggers drawn.

Rick actually came down to Happy Bays to work on a tell-all article exposing villainous billionaire Chazz Falcone. Rick just lost his job because of the exposé, and he’s determined to nail the real estate tycoon to the wall. He soon discovers that trouble has followed him from New York City. Though she pretends to be a baker, he has a sneaking suspicion Felicity Bell is really working for Falcone, trying to get her hands on his article.

Before long, Felicity and Rick find themselves in a reluctant partnership fighting the crime wave that has hit Happy Bays, and the shady billionaire who seems to be behind all the trouble.

Two Scoops of Murder

The Mysteries of Bell & Whitehouse 2

Happy Bays, that peaceful little town nestled on Long Island’s south shore, is suddenly the scene of a brutal murder. Felicity Bell, baker and sometime crime reporter, decides to get involved when the police appear stumped. Very soon, however, more murders startle the small community, and Felicity enlists the help of the ‘holy trinity’, three nosy and gossipy members of the Happy Bays Neighborhood Watch Committee (HBNWC).

Meanwhile Alice Whitehouse, Felicity’s best friend and chairwoman of the HBNWC, has other fish to fry in the form of Reece Hudson, Hollywood hunk. Alice has been Reece’s number one fan since he first rose to fame, and the fact that the handsome movie star is in town to introduce his fiancée to his father doesn’t stop her from accidentally falling into the man’s arms, and promptly signing him up for the HBNWC.

Now Felicity, with the help of Alice, the Holy Trinity, and action hero Reece Hudson, has to find a way to stop the killer before he strikes again. And as the body count rises, Felicity finds herself running out of time, out of options, and out of customers.

A Twist of Wraith

The Mysteries of Bell & Whitehouse 4

When the ghost of a murdered little girl suddenly appears before Felicity Bell, she’s surprised to say the least, most of all because Jennifer Dozen was reported missing, not murdered. But Jennie is very dead indeed, and before long Felicity finds herself embroiled in the baffling murder case.

Meanwhile at the funeral home, Alice Whitehouse has her own ghosts to contend with. Three to be exact: Donna, Dora and Rock enlist Alice to help figure out what exactly happened to make them this way. And as if that’s not enough there’s her boyfriend Reece, the Hollywood superstar, who doesn’t believe in ghosts, and sics a psychiatrist on her.

Soon, the entire Happy Bays Neighborhood Watch Committee is on the case, comforting ghosts, chasing leads, and even dealing with ghost dogs in the shape of Chazz Falcone’s dead Pomeranian. But when Alice and Fee discover that all clues lead to Town Hall, they know that this time they’ve bitten off a lot more than they can chew.
