Content descriptions

General Note: "A Thomas Dunne book."
Summary, etc.: "In this delightful new mystery our heroine Kat Stanford stumbles upon a hidden room in an abandoned wing at Honeychurch Hall. However, Kat's initial excitement soon ends in horror. There, lying on the cold, stone floor, Kat comes across the body of a young woman dressed in an Egyptian toga and wearing a tawdry fairground trinket around her broken neck. Suspicion falls on some of those who live at the Hall--both upstairs and down--and even those who are just been passing through. Matters come to a head as a killer lurks amid the aristocracy, and Downton Abbey fans will want more Killer Balls at Honeychurch Hall"--

    Kat Stanford, back in Little Dipperton to open Kat's Collectibles & Valuation Services, after a stint as a television host, inadvertently falls into a "priest hole" (hiding places used to conceal Catholic priests in seventeenth-century England), finding the body of Pandora Haslam-Grimley, who was last seen in 1958 at a midsummer ball at Honeychurch Hall. With her mother, Iris—who in 1958 was part of a traveling show—a suspect, along with numerous others from Honeychurch Hall, both above and below stairs, Kat and DI Shawn Cooper investigate this cold case. Complicating matters, her mother's stepbrother, Alfred, on parole, steals some drawings to protect the dowager countess, Lady Edith Honeychurch, from an accusation of insurance fraud. A wide range of well-drawn, quirky characters, including the Earl's young son, Harry, obsessed with fictional WWI squadron leader Bigglesworth, and Kat's mother, a successful, closet romance writer, 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. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
