Murder on the Moor by Julianna Deering



MY REVIEW:

Although it is book five in the Drew Farthering mystery series, “Murder on the Moor” easily stands on its own merits. Because of a heavy review calendar, I have had opportunity to read only the first book in the series prior to this one and I had no problems at all figuring out what was going on.

I am not certain if “Murder on the Moor” would be considered a cozy mystery but it is a fairly easy-going read with light suspense and plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor. Several quirky characters help keep things interesting with several of them considered good candidates for the guilty party. Plenty of unexpected twists and a surprise ending were in store. Just when I was beginning to think that Drew was never going to put all the clues together, he came through with flying colors. I sure didn’t see that coming!

I loved this book, especially the subtle humor that runs through it. One scene between Drew and Constable Watts had me in stitches. I highly recommend “Murder on the Moor” as well as the previous books in this series.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by Celebrate Lit. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.



ABOUT THE BOOK:

Click to purchase

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.
