Love Bytes Back

Edna Reid Investigates


When lonely widow Kitty Merriweather moves to Derbyshire’s Hope Valley, she joins the Silver Rose online dating site because it offers a safe place for the over sixties to find romance.

There, she meets the enigmatic Harvey, a scientist working on a conservation project in Bali who promises her “hot days and stormy nights.”

Love blooms quickly but Kitty breaks all the rules laid down by the agency, putting herself at risk. When little things don’t add up she dismisses them as being unimportant. Nothing matters more than her plans for them to live happily ever after.

When she confides in her new friend, Edna Reid, octogenarian and former café owner, Kitty gets angry at Edna’s implication she is likely the victim of a scam. The more Edna hears about Harvey, the more she is convinced he’s only interested in Kitty for her money.

Using her knowledge of computers Edna finally uncovers the truth, but where does black magic and murder fit into this intriguing cosy mystery?

Edna's Death Cafe is now available from all good online retail outlets.


Love Bytes Back

Edna, having sold her cafe to her assistant, finds she has time on her hands to do exactly what she wants, whenever she wants, but still feels there is something missing in her life.
Then the newly widowed Kitty Merriweather moves into her quiet little village, and tongues were wagging.
Who was this stranger who'd moved into Lavender Lodge? The villagers were bustling with curiosity so Edna makes it her business to find out more about their new neighbour.
Tales of intrigue, death, love trysts keep Edna busy and she comes out of Retirement, to take control.
Edna is back on form.

Angelena Boden

Hi there,

Welcome to my author page. I'm Angelena, 64 years young and Edna's Death Cafe is my third novel. I've spent the past 35 years travelling the world, delivering training courses and designing personal development workshops for people who get stuck at different times of life.

The doggy picture is of Raffi, a dachshund- poodle cross. He's Head of Welfare in our household and keeps us all smiling and sane. He's my daughter's dog really but we borrow him a lot.

Talking of family, I have two grown-up daughters and the Old Man in the Shed. I'm a a free spirit and take off frequently to explore new places, new ideas and chat to new people about their views and experiences of life.

Authors can't afford to starve in attics these days or present themselves as pale and suffering. We're out and about doing talks and signing books so if you fancy having a light-hearted chat about death and dying following Edna's unique style or writing in general, get a group together in your home town or area and invite me along!

If you like cosy mystery with lots of intrigue, look out for my new novel Love Bytes Back, published by Matador on February 14th 2020.

Me being formal.

Raffi being cute.
