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.
Cozy fans who like their mysteries set in small communities where a feud over the pruning of a rose bush is front-page news will welcome Dennison's fourth Honeychurch Hall whodunit set in Devon (after 2016's A Killer Ball at Honeychurch Hall). Kat Stanford, the star of the TV show Fakes & Treasures, was hoping to open an antique shop in London with her eccentric mother, Iris, an author of bestselling romances, but Iris's impulsive decision to buy the carriage house on the Honeychurch Hall estate near Little Dipperton has forced a change in plans. Despite her initial disappointment, Kat is now content to reside in the Devonshire countryside. Unfortunately, her love life is less than satisfactory; her one and only date with heartthrob Det. Insp. Shawn Cropper ended when he became ill. A series of thefts in the area adds a little tension, as does the disappearance of Iris's latest manuscript (of which there's only one copy), but those expecting much sleuthing may be disappointed.
