Murder in Miniature at Honeychurch Hall


If you’re a fan of Downtown Abbey and Agatha Christie mysteries, let me introduce you to the Honeychurch Hall series. These delightfully cosy crime novels by Hannah Dennison are set in a crumbling English country-house estate in Devon and follow former antique dealer Kat Stanford, who must solve the strange goings-on at Honeychurch Hall. The newest novel in the series, Murder in Miniature at Honeychurch Hall, begins when a man’s body is discovered on the estate grounds, and Kat finds herself drawn into a mystery involving two rare miniature portraits – portraits that a person might be willing to kill for…

As Caitriona McPherson said about the Honeychurch Hall mysteries, they ‘lift the lid on today’s grand country estate in all its tarnished, scheming, inbred, deranged glory’ – and they have enormous fun doing so.
