Andorra Pett and the Oort Cloud Café

How far is far enough? Andorra needs to get away from her ex, but is Saturn taking it a step too far?

When Andorra’s life turns upside down, she decides on a career change. Running a diner on a mining station orbiting Saturn. It seemed like a good idea at the time…

With her best friend Cy in tow, Andorra reckons it’s the best thing for them both. A chance to start again where nobody knows them.

Trouble is, there’s a secret hidden in the café. Before they have a chance to get settled, there’s a queue of dubious characters trying to find it.

While learning to bake and get used to life in space, Andorra has a murderer to catch!

Before they strike again…

“Agatha Raisin meets Miss Marple, in Space!”

“a tale that has everything – humour, suspense, a strong but struggling heroine, a fantastic sci-fi setting, and a truly universal story.”  

A review

“I really enjoyed this story and this is mainly down to the fact that this story had a little bit of everything to keep me interested. It definitely had a dash of cosy crime/mystery about it as Andorra (Andi) decides to do a little bit of investigating after making a discovery in her new business venture. Even though it is set in space it doesn’t have too much of a sci-fi feel to it, just enough to make the plot that little bit more interesting.
There is a wonderful array of characters that Andi meets as she gets her cafe up and running. Andi is brilliant and I couldn’t help but like her especially her knack of getting into trouble. I loved her friendship with Cy they made such a great team with lots of fun moments along the way.
It’s a wonderfully fun story with an added mystery and I loved putting the clues together but there were surprises along the way to keep me on my toes. I raced through the story in no time at all and my interest was kept completely.”

Andorra Pett on Mars.

Everyone said it was suicide, but were they right?

Andorra Pett’s ex turns up, with some bad news. Her best friend Maisie has killed herself, on Mars.

Trevor doesn’t believe it. Neither does Andorra, it just wasn’t like her. He wants Andorra to come back with him, look around and see if she can find some answers.

Despite her misgivings, Trevor’s paying and says she can take Cy with her. It’ll be a cheap holiday! What can possibly go wrong…

It soon becomes clear that there’s a lot more going on. Rival gangs, hidden messages and new friends all point Andorra towards a much bigger story.

What was Maisie caught up in?

“A plethora of eye rolls, snickers, and outright laughs! “

“Brilliant and humorous adventure”


A review

“I’d previously read and LOVED Andorra Pett and the Oort Cloud Café, so when I realised there would be another novel featuring the supersleuth of Saturn herself, I was really pleased and couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy…luckily, I didn’t have to wait long as author Richard Dee was kind enough to send over a copy.

Although this book picks up where Oort Cloud Café finishes, I don’t think it’s a necessity to have read that before starting this, as it reads well as a standalone, and any information that you do need is well explained.

Andi is as fantastic as before, larger than life, beautifully written, and just sounds like someone you’d want to go down the pub and swap embarrassing stories with. Cy is entertaining, and his relationship with Andi is sweet. There is a whole host of other characters that make the book as engrossing as it is. Andi and Cy unwittingly getting sucked into a rollercoaster ride of drama while trying to find out what happened to poor Maisie made captivating reading.

Andorra Pett on Mars satisfied both the sci-fi nerd and crime thriller fan in me simultaneously; it’s an intelligently written tale full of twists and turns that I found impossible to put down!”

Andorra Pett and her Sister

This time, it’s personal…

When your sister’s been arrested, is it really the end of the world?

Andorra Pett and her sister Argentia, have never got on, it’s complicated. So, when Andorra gets a call for help, she knows it must be serious.

Argentia is in trouble, big trouble. She doesn’t know why she’s been arrested. Or how she’s upset some big deal drug smugglers. But it seems her husband does, and he’s left her to take the fall. 

The police think she’s guilty, Andorra is her only hope of avoiding prison. 

Against her better judgement and without her friend Cy to help her; Andorra starts to investigate…

“Space super sleuth Andorra Pett returns.”

Twists, turns, and smart sleuthing done right.”

Are we There Yet?

Every story has a beginning.

Ten-year-old Andorra Pett and her best friend Maisie are on holiday, in Devon.

Amid trips to the beach and the moors, they stumble on an old caravan in the woods.

Who is the owner and why is he acting so strangely? What could he be hiding?

All they have to do is persuade her parents that there’s something very bad going on.

Years before she arrives at the Oort Cloud Café, Andorra gives us an early glimpse of her talent for solving puzzles.

“Space super sleuth Andorra Pett returns.”

Twists, turns, and smart sleuthing done right.”

A review

This is my first Andorra Pett mystery, and I’m so impressed, I’m diving into the first book in the series. This short is a glimpse of the sleuth Andorra as a young girl.
The characterization is brilliant! The story is fast moving, and keeps the tension at a perfect level. Any cozy mystery fan MUST check out Andorra Pett!

Andorra Pett takes a Break.

Yearning for peace and quiet with her partner, Derek, Andorra Pett heads home to the space mine off Saturn. Despite her good intentions, she soon gets dragged into the station’s politics, so it’s a relief when the chance of a holiday comes up.

All she has to do to get the trip of a lifetime is give a speech on the maiden voyage of the Solar Breeze, a new sort of cruise ship.

Its voyages around the solar system will be the must-have vacation. Once the great and the good have had a sneak preview, on a cruise taking in the delights of Venus and Mercury.

But nothing is ever simple in Andorra’s life. Things get really serious when the Solar Breeze is hijacked by eco-terrorists.

A trip around the sun will never be the same again.

The Boxset

Meet Andorra Pett. She’s running away from trouble, but it keeps finding her. The first three adventures of the solar systems most unlikely detective are here in one volume

“Agatha Raisin in space – slick crime thriller meets sci-fi fun.”

When Andorra decides to get away from her car-crash of a love life, she ends up on a space mine orbiting Saturn, armed only with the determination to do something different. Solving crime was never on the agenda, just a bit of forgetting about the past and making a new life.

Trouble is; bodies and murderers seem to be around every turn. Not to mention organised crime, stolen goods and all manner of dubious characters. Andorra soon gets dragged in over her head. At least she’s kept her sense of humour

With her pal Cy, she gets to grips with running a café and discovers its secrets.

Then her ex turns up with a tale of woe, forcing her to go to Mars.

Finally, she discovers that family is the only thing that really matters, when her sister back on Earth needs her help.
