I am absolutely delighted to share my review for Nancy Cornish PI by Amanda James. This is the second book in the series and another book that absolutely hit the right spot. My huge thanks to Mandy for my advanced e-copy of this book, my thoughts are my own.
As I am away from Social Media at the moment, any shares or likes would be very much appreciated ❤
Let me show you what it is all about…
Where extraordinary things happen…you’ll find Nancy Cornish
Nancy Cornish has recently left her job at The Whistling Kettle Café in Padstow to start her own PI business. Nancy, seemingly an ordinary member of her community, has an extraordinary gift. She is able to make psychic connections with those who have passed, and objects belonging to those still living. The PI denotes Psychic Investigator, not Private Investigator. Her husband Charlie is a DS in the Truro police, and a down to earth Cornishman. In the past, he’s dismissed Nancy’s gift as ‘mumbo jumbo’, but now he accepts that she’s a very good detective. He’s over the moon that she’s been able to help him solve some important crimes, and is keen for her to keep up this good work.
As well as working with her husband in his police work, Nancy’s main mission in life is to use her gift to help others. In the grand scheme of things, the cases she solves within her community might not seem very important. However, they mean the world to those who come to Nancy for help. Some of her successes to date has been to reunite long lost lovers, track down a war hero’s missing medals, rescue a beloved pet, and find the mystery ingredient in the local butcher’s prize-winning sausages!
In this sequel to The Cornish Connection, we see people come to Nancy for all sorts of reasons. Some are new clients, some are old friends, and she often discovers that what they say they need help with, is only the beginning of their story. Nancy’s investigations and discoveries help them to see what’s most important to them in life, and how to achieve it. And as we all know, that thing is happiness.
Nancy Cornish PI – ‘An unusual and uplifting story, set against the gorgeous backdrop of Cornwall. Perfect!’

This is the second book in the Nancy Cornish PI series. The PI is Psychic Investigator and Nancy has run her business helping people for a year. She helps people find lost items of sentimental value, discovers untold secrets and puts peoples minds at rest. This is a series I am really enjoying as I follow Nancy around Cornwall as she connects the dots and solves the mysteries.
As this is the second book in the series I was already aware of some of the characters and there are brief mentions of past cases. To be honest it is a book you could read as a stand alone, but I would advise reading in order as some of the characters have some smaller ongoing story lines.
This book follows Nancy as she solves a series of cases, while some seem straight-forward there are also others that have a more serious nature. Other involve a more lengthy course of action and take a while to come together.They are wonderfully woven together and kept me hooked throughout the book.
I always mention this authors use of the Cornish landscape and surrounding area, she uses it to such good effect and it adds a wonderful sens of place. It always amazes me how well she weaves the scenery into the story and it always feels fresh and like you are take a short breather from he story but are still very much involved.
This is another fabulous book int he series and one that i think mystery readers would really enjoy as well as those who want something slightly different. Yes it does have a psychic element to it and I think it works really well. It has left me wanting to read more in the series and I would definitely recommend it.
Amanda James has written since she was a child, but never imagined that her words would be published. Then in 2010, after many twists and turns, the dream of becoming a writer came true.
Amanda has written many short stories and has thirteen novels currently published. Her time travelling debut – A Stitch in Time was published in April of 2013 and has met with great success.
Amanda lives in Cornwall and is inspired every day by the wild and beautiful coastline near her home. She has many suspense/mystery novels set there. Somewhere Beyond the Sea, Summer in Tintagel, Behind the Lie, Another Mother, Deep Water, The Cornish Retribution, The Feud and Dark Deception. Amanda has two women’s fiction books. The Calico Cat, a family drama/coming-of-age, and The Cornish Connection, cosy crime with a psychic twist.
Amanda can usually be found playing on the beach with her family, or walking the cliff paths planning her next book.
