Death of a Diva at Honeychurch Hall

This week’s Friday Read comes to you from the newest member of the L, B team: I’m the publishing assistant at PCR, having joined in lockdown (and am yet to set foot in the office). A certainly strange time to start in a new role, but exciting nonetheless!

Growing tired of this gloomy November weather, and needing to escape somewhere sunnier? Finished binging The Crown, and left wanting more of the scheming and bizarre British aristocracy? Then Death of a Diva at Honeychurch Hall will be your fix.

As amusing as its title suggests, this book takes us to bright and warm Devon, following the ever-charismatic Kat Stanford as she is drawn into the cutthroat world of amateur dramatics and blue-blooded intrigue. A really laugh-out-loud book, with a grand-estate’s worth of scheming and intrigue, Dennison’s Death of a Diva is both a classic English village mystery and a truly witty read. Refreshingly sharp and hilarious, it’s exactly the book to brighten your glum November weekend (and also make you grateful you’re not a peculiar British aristocrat.)
