Publisher Description

Living in a haunted lighthouse in the small town of Sea Breeze, California with her two elderly aunts, Agatha Bright has everything she wants. She owns and runs a bookstore / soup shop on the beach, and her soups are loved by everyone in town. Her life is regimented and organized.


But Agatha has secrets that might get her in big trouble. Dark secrets.


When a woman goes missing, the suspicion falls on Agatha, turning her life upside down. The new detective in town, Remington Cumberbatch, has seen a lot of weird things as a detective in nearby Cannes, California, but he's in for a surprise with Agatha, her family, and the quirky town of Sea Breeze. He begins to investigate Agatha as the number one suspect, but the attraction is immediate.


When the missing woman turns out to be murdered, the mystery deepens, and Agatha must help Remington find the killer before she winds up in prison…or worse.


The Fear Hunter is the first installment of the Agatha Bright Mysteries, a funny, romantic, small town cozy mystery series with a touch of magic. It is a spin-off series of the Matchmaker Mysteries and the Goodnight Mysteries with some characters from both.


Agatha Bright Mysteries…Agatha Bright has a delicious recipe for murder.

The Fear Hunter

This book was absolutely wonderful. Agatha Bright was very realistic even though this was a paranormal story. I absolutely loved Agatha. An intelligent woman who knew her strengths and weakness. This book was so delightful that I could hardly put it down. Read and enjoy everyone. It is a very enjoyable read.

Interesting and unusual

Loved Aggie and her aunts! This book had so many interesting and unusual characters: a ghost, an alien, looney real estate agent/fudge maker...I can go on and on. The mystery had many twists and turns with a little added romance. A hit!

The Fear Hunter

What a fun book to read! I laughed out loud some and enjoyed the twists in the story. Some odd characters added to the enjoyment.
