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.

My Thoughts

This is your classic "Who done it" mystery novel with a twisting ending that you may not see coming until it hits you like a ton of books. Drew and his wife Madeline are not professional detectives, but that doesn't really matter. There is a crime, it needs solving, and they are the ones to do it!

The book is well paced, and the plot is easy to follow, but unexpected. That's always a refreshing combination when it comes to a mystery story! The characters are full of life and personality, and really impacted the way I felt during the reading. I did NOT like Sabrina. She was just a shady lady to me lol. I LOVE Drew.

This is part of a series, but I did not feel as if I needed to read anything before this for it to make sense with me. This is a distinctly stand alone novel that you can enjoy, or you can enjoy it within the series.
