Review: Deadly Desires at Honeychurch Hall by Hannah Dennison

Mysterious Reviews: Reviews of New Mysteries, Novels of Suspense, and Thrillers

A Mysterious Review of Deadly Desires at Honeychurch Hall by Hannah Dennison. A Kat Stanford Mystery.

Review summary: This is a very entertaining, often very humorous, cozy mystery with the many quirky characters displaying their affection or rancor, often both, towards one another in a manner that is generally more genial than not. The nicely plotted storyline makes for a fine, amusing, and enjoyable summer read. (Click here for text of full review.)

Our rating: 4 of 5 stars

Publisher synopsis: When the body of a transport minister is discovered in the grounds on Honeychurch Hall, suspicion about his unusual demise naturally falls on the folks in the village. After all, who could possibly want a high-speed train line built in their front yard?

News of the murder soon reaches Kat Stanford's nemesis Trudy Wynne. A ruthless tabloid journalist and the ex-wife of Kat's discarded lover, Trudy is out for revenge. She is also interested in exposing — and humiliating — Kat's mother Iris, who is secretly the international bestselling romance writer Krystalle Storm.

As the body count begins to build, Kat becomes inextricably embroiled in the ensuing scandal. Is the minister's death the result of a local vendetta, or could it be connected to her mother's unusual (to say the least) past?

Holy Murder by Rodney Hobson, Amazon Kindle format

Detective Inspector Paul Amos is just about to head off on his annual holiday when he gets an urgent phone call from Sir Robert Fletcher, the Chief Constable of Lincolnshire police. A man has been killed in what appears to be an abseiling accident at St Botolph's Church in Lincolnshire. When Amos arrives on the scene it quickly becomes clear that this was no accident — Simeon's ropes had been cut on purpose. Simeon was a local hero, rescuing the farmers from ruin, and loved by all. And most of the village had turned up to see their "celebrity" scale the church wall. So why would anyone want him dead?

As Amos delves deeper into the case, cracks in the story soon begin to appear. Was Simeon really the benevolent philanthropist he claimed to be? Or was he more of a sinner than a saint?

Publisher: Putnam

Brush Back by Sara Paretsky, Amazon Kindle formatBrush Back by Sara Paretsky, Nook formatBrush Back by Sara Paretsky, iTune iBook formatBrush Back by Sara Paretsky, Kobo format

No one would accuse V. I. Warshawski of backing down from a fight, but there are a few she'd be happy to avoid. High on that list is tangling with Chicago political bosses. Yet that's precisely what she ends up doing when she responds to Frank Guzzo's plea for help.

For six stormy weeks back in high school, V.I. thought she was in love with Frank. He broke up with her, she went off to college, he started driving trucks for Bagby Haulage. She forgot about him until the day his mother was convicted of bludgeoning his kid sister, Annie, to death. Stella Guzzo was an angry, uncooperative prisoner and did a full twenty-five years for her daughter's murder.

Newly released from prison, Stella is looking for exoneration, so Frank asks V.I. for help. V.I. doesn't want to get involved. Stella hated the Warshawskis, in particular V.I.'s adored mother, Gabriella.

But life has been hard on Frank and on V.I.'s other childhood friends, still stuck on the hardscrabble streets around the dead steel mills, and V.I. agrees to ask a few questions. Those questions lead her straight into the vipers' nest of Illinois politics she's wanted to avoid. When V.I. takes a beating at a youth meeting in her old hood, her main question becomes whether she will live long enough to find answers.

Telemystery News: Updates on Banshee, Lilyhammer, and Longmire

Telemystery, the most complete selection of detective, amateur sleuth, private investigator, and suspense television mystery series now available or coming soon to DVD

A few quick updates on Telemystery series …

Lilyhammer has been canceled after three seasons on Netflix. Co-produced with Norwegian television, the series stars Steve Van Zandt as Frank "The Fixeer" Tagliano, a former mobster who is relocated to Lillehammer (Norway) via a federal witness protection program.

• The Cinemax original series Banshee will end after its fourth season, which is scheduled to premiere in January 2016. Antony Starr stars as Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief, who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pennsylvania, where he continues his criminal activities, even as he's hunted by the shadowy gangsters he betrayed years earlier.

• Netflix has announced that the fourth season of Longmire will be available to stream on September 10th. A&E (inexplicably) canceled the high-rated series after three seasons and Netflix promptly picked it up.

Nobody is looking forward to the end of the nuptial season more than Anna Winters. She is the Grand Palatial hotel's event planner and nothing has gone right this year. That's putting it mildly. Wedding guests are checking out left and right, but they're leaving in body bags and it's clear to Anna the murderers are receiving inside help.

When a wealthy Greek family with ties to the mafia plans an extravagant event for their daughter, Anna holds her breath and hopes for the best. She tosses her optimism in the ocean when the groom and three others are poisoned. This time Anna's boss is on the premises and the pressure to find the killer is nearly unbearable. Though she usually relies on her best friend and co-worker, Pauline, to help solve cases, Pauline is a bit preoccupied trying to evade the advances of the family's persistent patriarch.

Anna is determined to figure out who on her staff is masterminding the killings, but she hits a snag when her boss finally makes good on his threats to fire her. On the outside looking in, desperately closing in on a suspect, Anna finds help from an unlikely ally and must find a way to put a stop to a serial killer before she ends up the final victim.

Nick's father is a stand-up Irishman — once a cop, now a security guard in the World Trade Center's North Tower — but Nick does not take after his old man. He's "got the bad drop," meaning he only cares about booze, violence, and getting into trouble with his best friend, Todd, a low-level hood connected to the Boston mob. Todd inducts Nick into the world of petty crime.

What starts as a bit of good fun — robbing apartments, scoring weed — turns serious as Todd gets closer to the inner circle. He may not love violence as much as Nick does, but he's about to get more than his fair share.

A Conversation with YA Mystery Author Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel

Omnimystery News: Author Interview with Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel

We are delighted to welcome author Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel to Omnimystery News today.

Melissa's first in a trilogy of YA mysteries is Wabanaki Blues (The Poisoned Pencil; June 2015 trade paperback and ebook formats) and we recently had the chance to catch up with her to talk more about the book.

— ♦ —

Omnimystery News: Into which mystery subgenre would you place Wabanaki Blues?

Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel
Photo provided courtesy of
Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel

Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel: Wabanaki Blues is a cross-over novel. The main character, Mona Lisa LaPierre, is seventeen years old. She solves a cold case murder at her high school. But she also solves a deeper mystery about New England, the land where she lives, and how it connects to the greater universe. That deeper, more philosophical, element in the book is something that appeals to all ages. This book can be read at many levels.

OMN: Give us a summary of the book in a tweet.

MTZ: Wabanaki Blues is a double mystery: a cold case high school murder mystery & a timeless cosmic mystery rooted in Native American tradition.

OMN: How much of your own personal or professional experience have you included in the book?

MTZ: My characters are always inspired by people I know. I realize some people are unaware of the enduring and active Native American community of New England, never mind the ancient stories and traditions that community preserves and perpetuates. I enjoy offering a window into that world. Some of our practices are contemporary. But others are as old as memory. Just as other continents have ancient stories about little people and giants, so too the Natives of this land carry its ancient and fantastical tales. By sharing those tales, I hope to share a deep rootedness in this beloved land.

OMN: How did you go about researching the plot points of the story?

MTZ: I have spent my entire life learning all I can about my Native American people. To that end I received a Masters Degree in History and conduct ongoing research. My research does not come only from books. I have long travelled to visit with other traditional indigenous knowledge keepers. I also grew up hearing the ancient stories of my Mohegan elders and other elders at Tantaquidgeon Museum. My great aunt and great uncle, Gladys and Harold Tantaquidgeon, founded this Connecticut museum in 1931. It is the oldest Indian owned and operated museum in the USA. I started giving tours there, almost as soon as I could walk and talk.

OMN: How true are you to the setting?

MTZ: Because my Native American heritage connects me to the most ancient stories of New England, my settings are beyond real, not in a supernatural sense but in the sense of connecting the reader very intensely to old indigenous traditions about a place, traditions which they may not have heard before, traditions rooted in Oral Tradition, ceremony, and a deep respect for this land.

OMN: How involved were you with the cover design of Wabanaki Blues?

MTZ: Like everything about my writing, my cover design is timeless and rooted in Native American tradition. The border comes from a star design that has long been used by the Wabanaki people (of what is today called northern New England and the Canadian Maritimes). That star is an important symbol of the Wabanaki Confederacy, an ancient alliance of tribal nations that includes the Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Micmac, Maliseet and Abenaki. There is also a bear on the cover that is central to the story. The woodlands pictured on the cover are glowing and alive, for that is how they appear when fully connects to them.

— ♦ —

Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel is the Medicine Woman of the Mohegan Tribal Nation of Connecticut. She received her MFA in Creative Writing from Fairfield University, her MA in History from the University of Connecticut and her BSFS in History/Diplomacy from Georgetown University. Zobel grew up giving tours at Tantaquidgeon Indian Museum on the Mohegan Reservation, learning tribal tradition from her great aunt, Medicine Woman Gladys Tantaquidgeon. Melissa has been employed by her tribe as a cultural leader for twenty-two years and has three grown children — Rachel Beth Sayet, Madeline Fielding Sayet, and David Uncas Sayet. She is married to her high school sweetheart, Randall Zobel.

"Some days you appreciate the dead; others, you don't dare think about them."

These are the words of Mona Lisa LaPierre, teen blues musician, also known as the girl who never smiles. When her out-of-touch parents send her to the New Hampshire boondocks to stay with Grumps, her reclusive grandfather, Mona is not exactly thrilled. She nevertheless slings her beloved guitar, Rosalita, over her shoulder, says goodbye to Beetle, the oblivious boy she adores and sets out to meet her destiny.

Destiny pops up in various forms: a blonde bear named Marilynn with a fondness for bananas, a fellow musician named Del, and a green-flamed motorcycle that was last seen racing away from her high school the day a girl from her school named Mia Delaney disappeared eighteen years ago.

Mona's search for Mia's murderer becomes a quest for identity, love, and meaning. She is guided along the way by Grumps and her dead Grandmother, Bilki, whose spirit speaks to her in moments of need. Mona's amazing journey is enriched by Native American traditions, a passion for music and art, and her growing realization that to achieve what is most important in her life, she must sacrifice what she most loves.

A twelve-year-old girl and her younger brother go on the run in the woods of North Idaho, pursued by four men they have just watched commit murder — -four men who know exactly who William and Annie are, and who know exactly where their desperate mother is waiting for news of her children's fate. Retired cops from Los Angeles, the killers easily persuade the inexperienced sheriff to let them lead the search for the missing children.

William and Annie's unexpected savior comes in the form of an old-school rancher teetering on the brink of foreclosure. But as one man against four who will stop at nothing to silence their witnesses, Jess Rawlins needs allies, and he knows that one word to the wrong person could seal the fate of the children or their mother. In a town where most of the ranches like his have turned into acres of ranchettes populated by strangers, finding someone to trust won't be easy.
