beckieAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5More Farthering MysteryApril 10, 2017beckieAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0"Murder on the Moor" by Julianna Deering is the 5th in the Farthering Mystery series. The series follows amateur detectives, Drew and Madeline Farthering in their English mystery solving quest. In the newest addition to the series, "Murder on the Moor", Drew's old school friend, Beaky, another master of riches and lands, asks Drew and Madeline to help him solve a mired of mysteries in the Moor. The Vicar has been murdered as well as someone has been "haunting" the north wing of his home. Shortly after the Fartherings' arrival another murder is committed and the strange occurrences keep piling up.
The Farthering mysteries are a well written, intriguing, and engaging group of books to read. I have read them all and they are all great. This one might be my favorite. They have that high class, gentry thing going on in them and yet the characters remain loveable and steer clear from the usual obnoxiousness that can befall stories of this era. I highly recommend this book as well as the series. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from www.bakerpublishinggroup.com.

Sarah SundinAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Another favorite!March 29, 2017Sarah SundinAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I keep saying this about the Drew Farthering Mysteries, but this one is my favorite! In Murder on the Moor, Julianna Deering explores some fascinating characters and tips expectations on their ears. As in the best mysteries, I suspected everyone and no one. I was thrilled that the actual culprit was high on my list . . . although I didnt know why. Come for the clues and the mystery, but stay for the characters and a beautiful tale of sacrificial love that will touch your heart.
Melissa4 Stars Out Of 5A Mystery Book ReviewMarch 28, 2017MelissaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Two and a half years ago, I reviewed the book The Rules of Murder the first of the Drew Fathering series by Julianna Deering. I am certainly not a mystery expert, but I do enjoy a really well written mystery that will keep me up in the wee hours, unable to put it down until I discover whodunit. I thought The Rules of Murder a bit mediocre as it didnt keep me up at all.
Murder on the Moor is the latest installment of the Drew Fathering series by Julianna Deering. Since I wasnt overly impressed with the first book, I havent kept up with rich young playboy Drew and his now wife Madeline. Now, howeverI need to go back and read the installments Ive missed. For Murder on the Moor did keep me up, wanting to know what was going to happen next and whodunit. Two murders, seemingly unconnected. Interesting characters, all with motives. And a detective that has matured with time. Yea!
eLyndaAge: 35-44Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Like Watching a Classic MovieMarch 28, 2017eLyndaAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I like reading all things British, and historical fiction is a favorite genre of mine. Though I don't read a lot of straight mysteries, the reference to Bronte and the Yorkshire moors in the back cover copy was enough to interest me in the book. From the opening scene, this book drew me in and immersed me in the story, so much so that I could hear the English accents as I read and I found a delightful way to spend some time.
One thing I especially enjoyed is that limited knowledge allows the reader to try and solve the mystery right along with the characters, leaving us as perplexed by the events as Drew and Madeline. There are several instances of diversion that make the case more complex, a few red herrings, and many of the elements that make a cozy mystery so appealing. The moor location lends a hint of the sinister, and the dilapidated north wing makes us wonder what secrets it conceals even as various characters warn of its dangers.
The historical component is also entertaining and I enjoyed the various references to things like tenants and entails in a more modern time than I usually read. It changes things a little bit, but I can see the roots of the various customs brought forward to the 30s.
I enjoy classic movies, and this particular book feels like I'm watching Nick and Nora Charles solve another case. While I have not read previous books in the series, I was able to pick up this latest installment in the Drew Farthering Mysteries without feeling like I was lost. But I came to enjoy the characters so much, I plan to go back and start from the beginning!
I received a free copy of this book through Celebrate Lit, but no compensation for this review. I was not required to write a favorable one and the opinions expressed are both honest and my own.
