“… this upstairs downstairs cozy should please Downton Abbey fans“
“… A humor-laden blend of antiques, celebrity adulation, and old-style British cozy. Fans of Alan Bradley or G.M. Malliet would savor.“
“…Dennison’s book is fast and funny and a little sexy to boot…“
“Just the thing to chase the blues away …“
Summer is here at last. It’s been a busy time with the launch of “Deadly Desires at Honeychurch Hall” and as we say in England, “so far, so good.” In the second book that chronicles the adventures of antique dealer, Kat Stanford and her mother Iris—aka the bestselling romance writing, Krystalle Storm—the Honeychurch Hall estate’s existence is threatened by the proposed development of a high-speed train line. Needless to say our intrepid duo join the campaign to “Stop the Bullet: Save Minutes, Lose Centuries” and naturally, a few heads begin to roll.
Oh—and good news, “Murder at Honeychurch Hall” is now available in paperback.
For Vicky Hill fans, a reminder that “Accused!”, the fifth in the series, will be published in November 2015 by Constable Crime (Little Brown). I’ve also learned there will be an audio version which is very exciting. I’m longing to know who will bring Vicky’s voice to life. I’ll keep you posted.
I’m often asked where I got the inspiration for Honeychurch Hall. Honeychurch itself is a real hamlet that is mentioned in the Domesday Book. You can learn a little more about it here. Honeychurch Hall is based on two great houses in Devon—Hillersdon House in Cullompton, and Dundridge in Harberton—but the Carriage House that becomes Iris Stanford’s new home, really does exist. It’s right next door to where my own mother lives. Take a look at this short video clip—and remember to turn up the volume.
I want to extend a huge thank you to the amazingly gifted Agustin Rexach’s brilliant editing skills. He transformed my shaky handheld camera into a work of art. Also to Jane Wynne, who graciously allowed me to roam around her home and take photographs—and she supplied me with gallons of tea and pounds of homemade lemon drizzle cake. Thank you Jane!
