She crossed an ocean to start her life over. Can she nab a killer before her quaint village becomes a graveyard?
Recently widowed Leta Parker desperately needs a change of scenery. Pursuing her lifelong dream of retiring to the Cotswolds, she leaves her soulless corporate hustle in Atlanta and moves to England with her talking dog and cat companions—Dickens and Christie. But she’s barely begun making new friends when she stumbles across her housekeeper’s body …
With several villagers pegged for the crime, Leta teams up with a retired English teacher and her sharp-as-a-tack octogenarian mother to track the killer before the trail goes cold. As the not-so-friendly local policewoman elbows them out and scandalous rumors plague the tight-knit community, it’s left to the ladies and their pets to sleuth for the truth.
Can Leta, Dickens, and Christie sniff out the culprit before the cute little town loses more than its charm?
Bells, Tails & Murder is the delightful first book in the Dickens & Christie cozy mystery series. If you like spunky literary women, amusing animal sidekicks, and inviting cultural backdrops, then you’ll love Kathy Manos Penn’s engaging page-turner.

Book II – Pumpkins, Paws & Murder is also available.
Leta Parker is back with her talkative dog and cat, Dickens and Christie. Though she’s still haunted by the tragic loss of her husband, her move from Atlanta to the Cotswolds village of Astonbury has given her a new lease on life.
Her days are filled with yoga, book club, long walks with Dickens, and outings with friends. Add preparations for the Astonbury Fall Fête —complete with apple-bobbing, scarecrows, pumpkins, and costumes—and she’s beyond busy.
All is well until a dead body is discovered on the riverbank, and once again, Leta and her friends are drawn into the search for a killer—a search that takes them to the coast of England.
Will touring Agatha Christie’s summer home help them access their inner Miss Marples?
Will Dickens sniff out clues closer to home? Or will Christie the cat outthink them all?
Discover the answers in Pumpkins, Paws, and Murder—book two in Kathy Manos Penn’s Cozy Animal Mystery Series.
Leta and her friends are busy preparing for the Tree Lighting on the Village Green—the event that kicks off the Christmas season. The children hang ornaments, the church choir sings, and the Earl of Stow flips the switch to set the tree ablaze.
What could go wrong?
Plenty! When there’s a new Earl in town. The beloved elderly Earl has passed away, and his American grandson has arrived to claim his title and inheritance. He has plans—big plans.
The village is rife with rumors about the goings-on at Astonbury Manor. Change is afoot.
Add a tragic accident and a dead body—and the season is off to a rocky start. Can the village pull together to chase away the dark mood? Only if the mystery surrounding the accident can be solved.
Leave it to Leta and her four-legged sidekicks Dickens and Christie. Fresh off investigating a murder at the Fall Fete, they’re once again on the case with the help of retired schoolteacher Wendy and her mum Belle.
Shouldn’t a literary festival be a tame affair? Not when Leta Parker and her sleuthing friends are involved. What begins as a book lover’s dream takes a disturbing turn when a body is discovered.
Unraveling the sinister scheme will take not only the literary minds of Leta and the Little Old Ladies Detective Agency but also assistance from a pair of would-be scholars—not to mention Dickens & Christie, Leta’s precocious pets.
Collectors, Cats & Murder is the delightful fourth book in the Dickens & Christie cozy mystery series. If you like spunky literary women, amusing animal sidekicks, and inviting cultural backdrops, then you’ll love this engaging page-turner.
The oldest of three girls, I was the shy bookworm in a boisterous New York City family of Greeks and Italians. I took a book everywhere I went−-to family dinners, to the doctor’s office, on family drives, and to bed.
I'm no longer shy, but I'm still an avid reader. And now? I'm passionate about writing too. Color me content!
