Description

This nail-biting addition to Hannah Dennison's Honey Church Hall mystery series, Murderous Mayhem at Honeychurch Hall is not to be missed.

"An enjoyable, lighthearted read, just the thing to chase the blues away." —M.C. Beaton

When the only copy of Ravished, Iris Stanford’s new manuscript, never arrives at her London publisher’s office, her daughter Kat investigates the tiny local village post office, where it appears the package never left the building. Iris is on tenterhooks—not only is her novel gone with the wind, but she’s deathly afraid that Muriel Jarvis, the postmistress and notorious busybody, will expose her secret identity as the bestselling romance writer Krystalle Storm. Meanwhile, Muriel has her own problems with the sudden death of her husband Fred, which has left her heavily in debt. In the spine-tingling climax, both past and present collide as Kat fights for her life and those she holds most dear, dancing once again with the dark forces lurking behind the grandeur of Honeychurch Hall.

Praise for the Honeychurch Hall Mystery series:

"An enjoyable, lighthearted read, just the thing to chase the blues away." —M.C. Beaton

"Wild, wacky, and wonderful. Establishes Dennison as the mistress of hilarious British mysteries." —Carolyn Hart

"Downton Abbey was yesterday, Murder at Honeychurch Hall lifts the lid on today's grand country estate in all its tarnished, scheming, inbred, deranged glory." —Catriona McPherson

"The perfect classic English village mystery, but with the addition of charm, wit, and a thoroughly modern touch." —Rhys Bowen

“This upstairs downstairs cozy should please Downton Abbey fans” —Publishers Weekly

“Fast and funny and a little sexy to boot” —Chicago Tribune’s Printers Row Journal

"A New Reading Delight Featuring Antique Shows, Romance Novels, Quirky Characters and Murder!" —Fresh Fiction

"Downton Abbey meets Midsomer Murders in this lively and entertaining series debut." —Marcia Talley, award-winning author of the Hannah Ives mystery series

"Sparkles like a glass of Devon cider on a summer afternoon." —Elizabeth J. Duncan, Bloody Words Light Mystery Award winner and Arthur Ellis and Agatha nominee

"A delight. Kept me up all night because I couldn't put it down till the end." —Dorothy Cannell, author of She Shoots to Conquer

"A wide range of well-drawn, quirky characters... add to the humor of this English village cozy. Framed with details of antiques and the lives of both today’s and yesterday’s aristocracy and their staffs, this story may please fans of Downton Abbey." —Booklist

“A classic country house mystery with a present day tabloid sensibility, cracking pace and acerbic humor—not to mention an entirely original cast of British eccentrics.” —Harley Jane Kozak

"The joy of this series lies in its delightfully eccentric characters, including the ever-surprising Iris, aka Krystalle Storm, bestselling author of steamy romance novels, and Kat herself, a smart, relatable heroine with questionable taste in men. Dennison’s affection for Devonshire, its history and people, is obvious on every page." —Publishers Weekly
