'Just the thing to chase the blues away' M.C. Beaton
Murder is in the air when hedge-jumping champ Dave Randall accuses his arch enemy, Jack Webster, of sabotaging his dream to compete at the upcoming European Games.
Vicky is used to Dave's histrionics and she turns a blind eye. After all, she has bigger fish to fry-namely solving the mysterious death of worm charming diva Ruth Reeves, whose sudden inheritance has made her very unpopular with old friends and neighbours alike. But when Jack Webster ends up dead, too, there seems to be a strange connection between the pair and Dave becomes the prime suspect.
The perfect classic English village mystery but with the addition of charm, wit and a thoroughly modern touch. (Rhys Bowen)
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. (Catriona McPherson)
