Life after death just got deadlier.
Mrs. Beatrice Timmons (aka Miss Knight) is thoroughly unimpressed by the troop of monkeys that have invaded her kitchen. Of course, that’s only the beginning of the influx of undesirable critters. When a giant spider appears in the garden, Mrs. Timmons knows there’s trouble brewing and it’s not served with tea. A choice must be made: agree to an unholy alliance or endanger an unborn child? To confound matters further, her husband disapproves of the whole venture. And that’s before Mrs. Timmons vanishes into the Underworld to pay an unsolicited visit to the God of Death. While it’s all for a good cause, the consequences could be dire.
Miss Knight and the Spider's Web is the sixth case in the “Society for Paranormals” series, in which a paranormal detective refuses to let danger, death, and unsolicited suitors inconvenience her in colonial Kenya. Welcome to a cozy mystery series concerning Victorian etiquette, African mythology, and the search for a perfect spot of tea.
★★★★★ "Once again, I am giving a five-star review to another one of Ms. Ehsani's books in her "Society for Paranormals" series. It's truly not like anything else I've ever read! Weaving creatures from African folklore into each story, Ms. Ehsani creates tales that evoke a time and place both alarmingly real and quite fantastical. Our heroine, Bee, just can't help falling headlong into danger, but it's always because of her need to be helpful, and proper, of course." -- CJ
★★★★★ "Fans of Beatrice Knight will love this book! We've become enchanted by the Victorian lady facing paranormal entities in Africa with dignity and courage. I for one love the part after the book where the author fesses up and tells us what is truth and what is fiction, sometimes truth can be just as strange as fiction." -- Diane Rapp
★★★★★ "Are you ready to read about paranormal creatures that are different from everything else out there? Are you interested in learning a little about a location rarely written about? Are you curious how a victorian-paranormal woman would react to the above? Then buy the series, sit back, relax and be prepared to smile." -- mYbks
★★★★★ " I am enjoying this series so much, reading how relationships and characters evolve and grow, learning some African mythology. The Fact and Fiction summary at the end of the novel. "A Spider Comes Calling" is my favourite book of the series so far. I would love to meet Beatrice and many of the characters in these wonderful books." -- Kate Ashley
★★★★★ "Beatrice may think she has no maternal instincts, but when a giant spider and a deadly mantis come to take Lily's unborn baby daughter for an un-deadly scheme, Beatrice will have none of it! This sixth adventure has Beatrice caring for a tiny creature, while training for a terrible mission, in order to save the baby. The pace is fast, furious, and filled with unusual creatures of the dark and light." -- Cleargrace

Death is only the beginning.
Two seemingly unrelated mysteries plague Beatrice Knight Timmons while she struggles with her witch lessons, forgiveness and impending homelessness. To complicate matters further, a couple of weddings and an overbearing relative interfere with her investigations. But that’s the least of her worries; a shadowy figure known only as the Poacher is targeting the children of paranormals. When danger begins to rock the cradle and threatens her growing family, Miss Knight must put aside her doubts and fears to face her greatest foe yet: her past.
★★★★★ "Another riveting book by an amazing author . Truly enjoyed reading all of this author’s books. Very intriguing characters and exciting plot for anyone not familiar with this series. My guilty pleasure is sipping a nice cup of tea while reading this series." -- Chelsea F.

★★★★★ "This was actually one of my favorite of Vered's books. I just loved it. Once started, it was hard to put down or hard to stop thinking about." -- Tiz
★★★★★ "As always, there is terrible danger closing in on all of them, and thankfully Bee has the love, support, and assistance of her motley crew to stop the horrible Poacher from doing terrible, terrible things. Bee learns more about her powers & strength, figures out whom to trust and whom to fear, and is surrounded by more love than she has ever known. Wonderful story, well-written, imaginative, clever, funny, frightening - who could ask for more?" -- CJ
★★★★★ "I love the characters in this series. They are fascinating. I loved the story but the ending did not satisfy my need for revenge. Children at peril is not something I can abide. Somehow I do not trust the newest character that has joined the family. Hope we will learn more about her in the future." -- Rhonda Jones
Miss Knight and the Poacher's Catch is the tenth case in the “Society for Paranormals” cozy mystery series, where Jane Austen meets Lara Croft in colonial Africa. Join supernatural detective, Miss Knight, as she attempts to keep the kettle hot and her customers satisfied (or at least alive) while dodging murder, mayhem, and other inconveniences. Serving tea has never been more dangerous.
Murder is brewing.
While Beatrice Knight Timmons is part witch, the only thing she’s interested in nowadays is tea, and copious amounts of it. But that isn’t the only thing boiling in her life. No sooner does she open her very own tea shop in the small town of Nairobi, someone with a vendetta against young brides murders one and leaves the body in The Cozy Tea Shoppe. With her best friend’s wedding only weeks away, can Miss Knight stop the murderer while babysitting a monkey and serving difficult customers?
★★★★★ "What fun! Yes, it is a murder mystery, but it is so much more! You don't need to have read any other books by this author to thoroughly enjoy this one, but I'll bet that you will want to." -- Jan

★★★★★ "Vered Ehsani continues her stories of colonial British East Africa, Narobi and the paranormal with her usual dry wit and wry observations. For those who don't know, Ms Ehsani lives in Kenya (British East Africa once upon a time) and writes of an Africa which she obviously loves." -- Charles van Buren
Miss Knight and the Wedding Killer is the eighth case in the “Society for Paranormals” cozy mystery series, where Jane Austen meets Lara Croft in colonial Africa.

Serving tea has never been more dangerous.
Marital bliss was never this complicated!
Mrs. Beatrice Knight is preparing to start a life of marital bliss, or at least marital satisfaction, with her new husband who fortunately is very much alive and can’t float through walls. While she is no expert on honeymoons, she’s certain that they shouldn’t involve brainless heads, bloodsucking fireflies and Bubonic Plague.
These however are mere inconveniences, for there’s another threat of greater significance: the Nandi are rising up against their colonial masters and are determined to rid the land of all things British. The intrepid Mrs. Knight faces all this with her usual aplomb, her hefty walking stick and, of course, a pot of tea. But will her marriage survive?
Miss Knight and the Nandi's Curse is the fifth case in the “Society for Paranormals” series, in which a paranormal detective refuses to let danger, death, and unsolicited suitors inconvenience her in the small town of Nairobi. Welcome to a cozy mystery series concerning Victorian etiquette, African mythology, and the search for a perfect spot of tea.
★★★★★ "Another stellar mystery by a talented author. I read the first four like they were candy. This one is no exception. We are immediately into the setting and characters. Our heroine has mellowed a bit but she is still true to herself. I love the steampunk touches. Dare I hope for a next one in the series?" -- Dragon Lady
★★★★★ "This is a wonderful series, and Curse of the Nandi is no exception. Vered's writing style is beautifully restrained and humorous, the main character is almost Stoic in her thoughts and actions, and she makes a wonderfully complex heroine." Dana L. Reale
★★★★★ "I love this series. It is original, and I love the British stoicism and sarcasm from these Victorian era characters. Even more, I love Miss Knight's refusal to follow all the stuffy rules of the Ton." -- Rhonda Jones
★★★★★ "I'm hooked on this series! The clever dialog and extraordinary paranormal characters keep me interested from start to finish. It's lucky for new readers that each book is a standalone story, but they are extremely addictive. Keep them coming!" -- Diane Rapp
★★★★★ ""Curse of the Nandi" is an excellent read with elements of a Steampunk adventure, fantasy, and a touch of horror; an intriguing heroine; and a fast-paced narrative. It is a book I highly recommend." -- Mike Billington

Occupational hazard has a new meaning.
Having offered her firm and unequivocal resignation, Beatrice Knight is certain she is clear of her former employer, the Society for Paranormals, and is now free to proceed with her life and a wedding. It all seems quite simple, until the Society’s Director Prof Runal shows up at the train station, her cousin announces horrifying news and a ponytailed dwarf decides he needs her powers to eradicate all non-humanoid paranormals. At least one thing is certain: anything is manageable with a pot of tea and a fully loaded walking stick.

★★★★★ "Once again the intrepid Mrs Knight comes through with flying colors! I love the combination of steampunk and paranormal and I think I love Nelly the oh so flatulent horse the best!! Lol This lady isn't afraid of anything and goes full speed ahead after anything that threatens her or anyone she cares for! Hoping to read the rest of the series! This is awesome!" -- NightFaery
★★★★★ "I love the slightly formal, somewhat British, stiff upper lip-ish tone of this series. The Fourth Mandate involves Beatrice in more dangerous adventures, and a beautifully made metal hand. The pace of her adventures leaves me quite happily breathless, eagerly awaiting the next installment." -- Cleargrace
★★★★★ "This is a series that I honestly cannot get enough of. The characters are funny, charming and very real. I love the dry sense of humor throughout the story. The ending of the book (no spoilers here) was perfect! I couldn't have asked for better and was hoping for the very one that Vered composed." -- Tiz
★★★★★ " I went back and reread the series from the start because there are so many little things that make sense in light of the new disclosures in each book.

Some stones should never be moved.
Not easily befuddled, the intrepid supernatural sleuth Mrs. Beatrice Knight Timmons can’t fathom how the ancient tombstone of a legendary warrior-king ended up in Nairobi. All she knows is that her life is on the line once again as she embarks on her most dangerous mission yet: to retrieve a corpse and the soul it once housed. Mrs. Timmons may need more than a pot of tea if she wants to solve this case and stop a looming battle from enveloping all of British East Africa. To do so, she’ll have to work with the enemy and learn to read poetry. Then again, who has time for poems with a traitor plotting, an unborn child causing havoc and her husband sitting in prison?

As enemies join together in a epic paranormal battle, the action is fast and deadly." -- Diane Rapp
★★★★★ "I've been a fan of Beatrice since the first novel in this delightful series that is laced with equal parts of hair-raising adventures and humor. What drew me to the series were the strong female characters, starting with Beatrice but also including her cousin Lilly and the goddess Koki (she's the one who can change from praying mantis to raving beauty.) In addition to deliciously inventive plots, each book in the series contains insightful comments into the social mores of late Victorian and early Edwardian times as well as some important commentary on the role of women." -- Mike Billington

Ready for a killer road trip?
Evian Wavily will do just about anything to escape her predictable life and domineering grandmother -- even sign up for a cross-country scavenger hunt.

But all’s forgiven — if not forgotten — they race across Kenya.
The plan is simple. Too bad nothing else is. Evian and Rita are plagued with luck that redefines bad. Flat tires and a faulty GPS are only the beginning in a race that includes pirates, poachers, explosive secrets, and a ticking clock. What could possibly go wrong?
Pretty much everything.
Witch Way to Go is the prequel to the Wavily Witches Cozy Mystery series set in Tea Town, Kenya. Welcome to The Hotel Wavily where the guests are wicked, the owners are witches, and the service is to kill for.

Revenge is best served with tea.
All is proceeding as it should for Beatrice Knight. That is, until the African Lightning God lands in her barn and announces that Mrs. Knight’s arch-nemesis is about to pay an unsolicited visit. This time, the giant Praying Mantis Koki won’t be so easily dissuaded from exacting revenge against the intrepid paranormal investigator. Mrs. Knight must now answer one critical question: what, or whom, is she prepared to sacrifice in order to defeat the Mantis? As if that isn’t heart-wrenching enough, Mr. Timmons boldly presents a possibility too terrible to consider, yet too tempting to refuse. Now, if only she could survive long enough to make a decision…
Miss Knight and the Revenge of the Mantis is the third case in the “Society for Paranormals” series, in which a paranormal detective refuses to let danger, death, and unsolicited suitors inconvenience her in colonial Kenya.

★★★★★ "I am not sure, but I think that this book is my favorite one yet. I try so hard to read slowly so I have something to look forward to, but this delight was just too good to put down and I ended up devouring it in one, possibly two sittings. Beatrice is as witty and courageous as ever and we see more of her past as well as the past of some other characters. We even get to see into her future a bit." -- Tiz
★★★★★ "What is a young Victorian era widow of impecunious means to do when a vengeful shapeshifting praying mantis wants her head? Well, she has a bat man, energy thief, lightning god, 3 were lions, a werewolf, serpent spirit horse, and a ghost of a husband to help although, to be honest, the ghost is not of much assistance." -- open mind
★★★★★ "Full of surprises as well as some interesting back stories about the indomitable Mrs. Knight's past, this novel is written in the same smooth prose that marked the first two books in the series." -- Mike Billington

But no! This book just had to be so exciting, with a battle scene that takes your breath away and a declaration of love that leaves you just as breathless (who knew hand holding could be swoon worthy?)." -- Olivia C
