A KILLER BALL AT HONEYCHURCH HALL by Hannah Dennison / Mystery / Released May 3, 2016 by Minotaur Books.
In this captivating new mystery our heroine Kat Stanford stumbles upon a hidden room in an abandoned wing at Honeychurch Hall. However, Kat’s initial excitement soon ends in horror. There, lying on the cold, stone floor, Kat comes across the body of a young woman dress in an Egyptian toga and wearing a tawdry fairground trinket around her broken neck.
Suspicion falls on some of those who live at the Hall – both upstairs and down – and even those who are just passing through. Kat uses her knowledge of antiques and sleuthing to discover that secret trysts and cads from the past point to the murderer.
DEADLY DESIRES AT HONEYCHURCH HALL by Hannah Dennison / Mystery / Released May 2015 by Minotaur Books.
When the body of a transport minister is discovered on the grounds of Honeychurch Hall, suspicion about his unusual demise naturally falls on the folks in the village. After all, who could possibly want a high-speed train line built in their front yard?
News of the murder soon reaches Trudy Wynne, the nemesis of our heroine, Kat Stanford. A ruthless tabloid journalist and the ex-wife of Kat’s discarded lover, Trudy is out for revenge. She is also interested in exposing – and humiliating – Kat’s mother, Iris, who is secretly the international bestselling romance writer Krystalle Storn.
As the body count begins to build, Kat becomes inextricably embroiled in the ensuing scandal. Is the minister’s death the result of a local vendetta, or could it be connected to her mother’s unusual (to say the least) past?
