Blue Moon Investigations: A Humorous Fantasy Adventure Series Boxed Set Part 1 (Blue Moon Box sets) Kindle Edition
Delve into a world where supernatural crimes are investigated by one man standing alone to protect those that call on him. In the brooding, dark landscape of England, with its rolling hills and forgotten castles, the dark breeds evil in every shadow.
With millions of pages read and thousands of books sold, the Tempest Michaels paranormal investigation series will grip you from the start and rob you of sleep as you continue turning pages until well after your bedtime.
It is action-packed, but funny, fast-paced yet intriguing and there are 14 stories already published. Get the first 5 excitement-filled stories in this omnibus edition and save a pile against buying them individually.
Paranormal Nonsense – Falsely advertised as a paranormal investigator, Tempest Michaels has a serial killing vampire to track down and a poltergeist to catch and all because his client is just too gorgeous to turn down. He’ll need to keep his mind on the job though as his investigation soon attracts unwanted attention from the police and a local gang of vampire worshippers. They won’t be the biggest problem though as his friends, his mum, and his dogs are going to help!
The Phantom of Barker Mill – A hundred-year-old mystery proves irresistible for England’s only paranormal P.I. It looks like the perfect case, but someone, or perhaps everyone is lying to him, and as he closes in on the truth, he is led into a race against time that may cost him more than he is willing to pay. Oh, and his mum wants him to organise a baby shower.
Zombie Granny - Tempest Michaels has a zombie problem. Crazy people craving human flesh have been appearing without warning in hoards in towns across Kent. He is just as mystified as everyone else, but when the elderly husband of the recent viral internet sensation known as Zombie Granny asks him to prove she is no such thing, he has to take the case. Then outside his office, people start screaming...
Amanda Harper Paranormal Detective - When hysterical customers claim their shopping has been stolen by a ghost, the shopping mall manager calls the only paranormal investigation agency in the book. Meet Amanda Harper, Paranormal P.I. But its Amanda’s first day and nothing in life has prepared her for the bedlam that will follow. What is the truth behind the mysterious missing shopping bags? Does she have any idea what she is doing? And why, oh why, did she invite sassy BFF Patience Woods to help out.
The Klowns of Kent – Before the dust settles following a zombie outbreak, a plague of evil clowns descends on the towns and villages of Kent, bringing havoc and crime. When petty theft escalates to murder, Tempest knows he must get involved, but they come looking for him first. What is their motive? Are they from hell? To find out he’ll have to follow them into their trap and fight his way out.
The paranormal? It’s all nonsense, but proving might just get him killed.

Let me put it this way:
This might have been an interesting series of books for those who once upon a time loved Scooby Doo but have since outgrown it, but the author's sensibilities seem to be at about the 6th grade level at best. Fart jokes? Constant preoccupation with women's breasts, a protagonist whose first reaction to every woman he meets - make that sees - it whether he'll be able to have sex with her, and a major supporting character who can only speak and act like a teenage party boy made Blue Moon Investigations absolutely repellent to this reader.
Humor and witty remarks? Check!
Endearing characters? Check!

Great read. One star off for typos.
Tempest and a great crew of friends tackle mysterious claims by customers, proving, or debunking the paranormal. That is not to say they don't exist, just ask Frank, but Tempest is a non-believer. And his mission is to prove the rational explanation. The crew has a ton of fun doing that!
The capers were good and I loved the way Tempest fell into solving the mystery. I didn't like that the police chief took credit for everything. Our media coverage must be better here.
The one thing I really did not like were the grammatical errors sprinkled through the stories. I did find them distracting. Except for wishing them away, I enjoyed Blue Moon Investigations and am off to read set 2.

The writing is excellent in terms of spelling, grammar, syntax and sentence construction - refreshingly so for Kindle. The characters (the hero, his partner (with whom he's smitten - but unrequited as far as I've got), his team of mates who help him out with muscle and support as needed and the villains are well drawn and it's very easy to like them.
My only real criticism is the dialogue. It's written to the same quality as the text, but no-one actually talks like that - not even 'posh' people: 2 examples
Coming round from having been chased around by a 5' at the haunch attack dog, and then knocked out from an accidental small dose of an animal sedative Our Hero's friend - 6'7" ex-army Ben - replies to a query about how he's feeling "I have a fuzzy head and I can taste twiglets, but otherwise I appear to be fine."
And our hero, long time flirting with a 'hot' waitress at the coffee shop finally tries to get a date; her reply is that she's not looking for a boyfriend, just a 'friend with benefits'. Our hero's response is "How refreshing to meet a lady that knows what she wants and can ask for it directly. I shall see what I can do"
It's nearly but not quite a deal breaker.
The books are a sequential mix of small easy to solve problems and a meatier puzzle running through each book. It's fairly light weight stuff, with a goodly dose of humour - sort of 'Midsommer Murders crossed with Miss Marple'.
So to summarise: great writing (apart from dialogue style) - great characters - good stories - good doses of humour - great for when you want a a relaxed read that doesn't stretch you too much
