Author of the “Honeychurch Hall” and “Vicky Hill Mysteries.”
“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.”
“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.”
“…Dennison’s book is fast and funny and a little sexy to boot.”
“…Incorporating the tongue-in-cheek British humor with a shivering good mystery. Dennison delivers a novel that both Monty Python and Miss Marple would approve of…”
“Just the thing to chase the blues away …”
I hope everyone is feeling as chipper as me. I finally turned in the fourth book in the Honeychurch Hall Mysteries (as yet, untitled), which will come out in May 2017. Of course, I expect to see the manuscript back again at least twice, but for me, the worst is over. I love the next stage of incorporating notes from my editor that will make the story stronger as well as having fresh eyes to fix things that I missed the first time around.
Now I have a breathing space to enjoy the Oregonian summer with my husband and our two crazy Vizslas, Draco and Athena. We’ll be hiking the Columbia George and exploring Mt. Hood National Forest; strolling along Clatsop Plains—the staggeringly beautiful 18-mile stretch of coastline that stretches from Seaside to Fort Stevens and of course, experiencing the quirkiness of local events that range from the Adult Soapbox Derby to the Portland Hot Sauce Expo.
But since we all know how fast summer flies by, I wanted to give you a little bit of upcoming book news.
