About the Book
Murder on the Moor
Book: Murder on the MOOR, A Drew Farthering Mystery
Author: Julianna Deering
Genre: Historical Mystery
Release Date: February 2017
At the urgent request of an old school friend, Drew and Madeline Farthering come to Bloodworth Park Lodge in the midst of the Yorkshire moors, a place as moody and mysterious as a Brontë hero. There have been several worrisome incidents around those lonesome rolling hills–property desecrated, fires started, sheep and cattle scattered. Worst of all, the vicar has been found dead on the steps of the church, a crime for which Drew can discern no motive at all.
Few in the town of Bunting’s Nest seem like suspects, and Drew can’t keep his suspicions from falling on his friend’s new bride. Do her affections lie more with her husband’s money and estate, while her romantic interests stray to their fiery Welsh gamekeeper? As the danger grows ever closer, it’s up to Drew to look past his own prejudices, determine what’s really going on, and find the killer before it’s too late.
This story came to my attention at just the right moment as I was ready to read something different. What better than an Agatha Christie-like story to appease the need for a change.
Now, this is the first book I have ever read by Julianna Deering and this book is the fourth (I believe) in the series. I found myself a bit disappointed in the fact that I had not read the rest of the series. I wanted to know so much more about Drew and Madeline Farthing (I can’t help it, I am still a hopeless romantic). I was bummed that I couldn’t read it straight through in one setting like I would like, life seemed to keep getting in the way.
It was rather pleasurable to see how Mr. Farthing, Madeline, and Nick sleuthed to find the answers they needed to break the case. I am not one to read deeper into a story to figure out the “who did it” right away, yet I would rather figure it out along with the detective. I loved the tender moments between Drew and Madeline – they are sweet and sassy all in one. I also enjoyed the many references to my favorite detective, Sherlock Holmes, and his most famous case.
Overall, this was a great read and I look forward to reading the rest…as soon as I purchase them.
Thank you, Bethany House, Julianne Deering, and CelebrateLit for the opportunity to read this wonderful mystery.
