Publisher's Description

When a celebrated ACTOR IS FOUND MURDERED IN HIS DRESSING ROOM, all signs point to Drew's old flame. But behind the curtains nothing is what it seems and this quickly becomes his MOST puzzling case YET.

Just as Drew Farthering thinks his life has calmed down some, Fleur Landis, a former girlfriend, reappears, in dire need of his help. She's married now, no longer an actress--but the lead actor in her former troupe's production of The Mikado has been murdered, and Fleur is the police's number one suspect.

Drew would rather focus on his fiancée, Madeline Parker, and their upcoming wedding, but he can't leave Fleur and her family in the lurch--even if she did break his heart once. As Drew, Nick, and Madeline begin investigating, they discover more going on behind the scenes of the theater troupe than could ever have been imagined. It seems nearly everyone had a motive, and alibis are few and far between.

Both the murder case and the presence of the beautiful, exotic Fleur put a heavy strain on Drew and Madeline's relationship. Will their still-young romance survive the pressure?

"Deering gives us an enchanting mystery set around an England country estate in the 1930s... Rules of Murder is a wonderful, inspirational novel for those of you who love a good murder mystery."--Fresh Fiction

    Drews company had survived embezzlement, fraud, and near bankruptcy, but was now recovering. Brent Landis was doing a good job of running the company. Drew had survived nearly being killed. Madeline agreed to marry him. He was a happy man.

    When Brent and his wife, Fleur came to dinner, it was obvious she and Drew knew each other. We later discover they met while Drew was at Oxford, and Fleur was in an acting group. Their friendship developed into a romantic relationship. Drew was serious about her, but it was all a game to her. After she told Drew she was married, that ended the relationship. They had not seen each other in six yearsuntil now.

    When Johnnie, the owner of a theater is murdered, one of the cast members points the finger of blame at Fleur. We discover she and Johnnie had been romantically involved, and had recently been seen arguing. Fleur is soon arrested for his murder. Then two other people with the theater are killed.

    This is the third book in the Drew Farthering mystery series. If you like a murder mystery that also contains humor, you will enjoy this and the first two books

    Honestly, I was a bit underwhelmed with the first book of the series, but I felt very hopeful after the second book. I can say now that Murder at the Mikado, the third, and latest, book in the series, did not disappoint! Full of suspense, intrigue, and secrets, it held my attention until the very end, and lacked the things that irritated me in the earlier books of the series.

    Set in late 1932, Drew and Madelines wedding preparations are under way, and they have settled into a happy life in Farthering St. John with Aunt Ruth. But when a secret from Drews past is revealed, it threatens to destroy their future. Can Drew, Madeline, and Nick unravel the mystery before all is lost? And will Drew and Madeline make it to the altar?

    A little tidbit for lovers of the 1961 Disney film, The Parent Trap: remember when Miss Inch punishes the girls for their unladylike behavior? She quotes Gilbert and Sullivans opera, The Mikado, saying, let the punishment fit the crime. As you can guess, the title of that opera is the source of part of the title of Deerings book. Look for several Gilbert and Sullivan operas to be referenced in Murder at the Mikado.

    My favorite of the Drew Farthering Mysteries so far, Murder at the Mikado is a thrilling mystery sure to please, and I would highly recommend it! I would give Murder at the Mikado an A.

    Drew Fartherings life is finally going as planned. He is engaged to the love of his life Madeline and they are happily planning their pending nuptials, and the best part is the only mysteries to be seen are those on the pages of books. That is, until an old flame from Drews youth shows up in the most unexpected place with a murder hot on her heels. Needless to say, the future Mrs. Farthering is none too happy and Drew plans to stay as far from this fire as possible. But there is more to this case than meets the eye and Drew, Nick and Madeline cant seem to help getting drawn in.

    I havent read many murder mysteries aside Agatha Christie and Nancy Drew when I was younger but Julianna Deering brings back all I loved about the who-done-it genre! Drew and Nick are charming heroes who know how to get things done while still being absolute gentlemen and Madeline always reminds me of Nancy Drew.

    Drew and Madelines love story has been one of my favorites I have read in a while. The dynamic of their relationship continues to be tested and grow throughout the book as they learn more about each other and their past mistakes.

    I wont spoil the mystery but it kept me guessing until the very end and I hope this isnt the last well see from this series. Id recommend this author to any mystery fans!

    Having read the first two books in the Drew Farthering Mystery series, I was thrilled to return to early 1930s England and catch up with the lives of these interesting characters. Once again, I enjoyed the sophisticated and witty banter that occurs between Drew, Madeline, and Nick Dennison, Drews longtime friend.

    In Murder at the Mikado, both Drew and Madeline have to face some facts about themselves, their relationship with each other, and past events that have shaped the way they both view relationships. Using Madelines insecurities about herself, the author did an excellent job of highlighting the importance of trusting in God and taking one step at a time, letting Him lead the way.

    As with the other books in the series, more than one poor soul will fall victim to murder before Drew and his friends are able to track down the culprit.

    Although not exactly what I would term a cozy mystery, this series of books has a feel all its own. Murder at the Mikado is not a fast-paced suspense. It is a look back at a more genteel time, through the eyes of members of high society, and I truly enjoyed the trip!

    A wedding to plan and a case to solve...

    I did jump into the third book in a series with Murder in the Mikado, but the plot was easy enough to follow without the backstory.)

    This is the third Drew Farthing mystery, and when this one begins Drew is madly in love with his fiancee Madeline and buried in wedding plans.

    While Madeline dreams of choosing china patterns and wearing heirloom lace, Drew dreams of a future with this girl who understands him so well. She loves his home, appreciates his friends, and even solved two crimes with him! Drew hopes for domestic bliss in the years to come, and perhaps a few more detective cases.

    Of course, Drew doesn't want a case to land in his lap during pre-nuptial planing! And when the suspect is a woman Drew was once involved with, how is he to clear her name and keep Madeline happy?

    This mystery is just English enough to have that particular flavor. Drew talks about "traveling the Continent," and teatime is a fixture every day. Murder in the Mikado reminds me a bit of a Josephine Tey mystery.

    The extra characters are just difficult enough to peg that you will probably have multiple suspects.

    Drew and his friends Nick and Madeline make a fine and funny trio. They've still got a lot of growing-up to do, as they try to clear the suspect's name and prepare for their own futures. I heard that Julianna Deering is contracted with Bethany House for three more mysteries in this series, and we surely need further installments after this. The case may be solved, but we have to know more about the characters!

    Thank you Bethany House for my review copy!
