If the stones of the house could talk…

When Kat Stanford abandons a successful television career to help her mother Iris move into a rustic carriage house in Devon, she quickly discovers that behind the well-trimmed hedgerows, Honeychurch Hall is populated by more eccentrics than Kat had ever met in all her time in London.

The Dowager Countess, Lord and Lady Honeychurch, their precocious seven-year-old heir, his missing nanny, a brooding stable manager, a housekeeper with an extensive designer shoe collection… Everyone seems to harbour a secret -- and Kat’s mother may be hiding the darkest of them all…

Genre: Cozy Mystery

Praise for this book

"This is the perfect classic English village mystery, but with the addition of charm, wit and a thoroughly modern touch. Pour yourself a cup of tea, curl up on the couch and enjoy!" - Rhys Bowen

"A delight. Kept me up all night because I couldn't put it down." - Dorothy Cannell

"When she goes to the aid of her much loved but often irritating mother, Kat copes with aplomb with secrets old and new. A fun read." - Carola Dunn

"A rousing romp through the English countryside. Filled with quirky characters and hilarious antics, this page-turner will leave you breathless!" - Julie Hyzy

"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. And I did not guess whodunit. Please, please, let there be a sequel!" - Harley Jane Kozak

"Kat Stanford and her mother exchange laugh out loud one-liners and make a delightful duo as they solve a multi-layered mystery that kept surprising me right up until the end. Fantastic!" - Jenn McKinlay

"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. With lords and ladies, cooks and butlers, romance writers and priceless teddy bears, Hannah Dennison's Devon caper is a riot and the mystery itself keeps those pages turning right to the end." - Catriona McPherson

"Downton Abbey meets Midsomer Murders in this lively and entertaining series debut." - Marcia Talley
