    ". . . Drew Farthering lay on the sofa before the library fireplace, his head on his wife's lap, listening as she read from Jane Eyre" (7)

    Now, how could one not love that opening scene!?! I have no idea where I've been, but Murder on the Moor by Julianna Deering is my first Drew Farthering Mystery, and certainly will not be my last. I love classic settings, and the witty dialogue was just icing on the cake. It kind of reminds me of the classic Sherlock Holmes, though without the smartiness (that's nicely putting it), but with all the charm and interesting mystery that goes on. Is it weird I also had an inkling image of Shaggy and the Scooby Doo gang? I have no idea where that came from, but it's about the fun in mysteries. Granted, there was a death involve, so really shouldn't be fun. It's just so entertaining with the characters (Beaky, o, Beaky, you are sadly lovable!), and as mentioned before the witty dialogue. The message of not judging people without first getting the chance to know them makes Murder on the Moor a story that has depth, intrigue and a little bit of romance, all mixed in the cloud of mystery. Don't want to miss this. And I have four books to catch up on with Drew.

    This is a great whimsical yet mysterical Christian mystery. This reminded me of my favorite mysteries - Sherlock Holmes. Drew and Madeline are amateur sleuths and they are asked to help with a murder of a vicar. The mystery is intriguing, lighthearted, imaginative, and intelligently written. You are guessing throughout the whole book who did it and why. When you find out you are - why wow never would have guessed in a million years. The other characters are a kaleidoscope of uniqueness, and oddities. You will love this book. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Murder on the Moor by Julianna Deering is fifth in her Drew Farthering mystery series. No disappointment in this book...there is definitely mystery and murders to solve. First the postman and then the elderly former nanny. Will there be others? The police at Buntings Nest were a little out of their league and welcomed Drew and Madeline Farthering's help. "We don't have this sort of thing happen much." The locals like to say the mystery has to do with pagan high places and hauntings but the Farthering's friends know better, or do they? Walking on the moor can be dangerous to your health and Sabrina loves to walk the dog. Are they safe? Is someone following them? The author keeps the pages turning as she adds twists and turns to the plot. Fires, murders, huge pawprints that no known animal could make, sounds from the closed up wing of the house and lovers' trysts...what can it all mean? As in her previous book Dressed for Death, Deering does a marvelous job of keeping the culprit a surprise right up to the end. Drew himself is stumped for quite a while but with the help of his lovely wife, the mystery does get solved. If you love a mystery set in the 1930s Merry Olde England this is one classic murder mystery you won't want to miss.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author via CelebrateLit. A favorable review was not required and opinions are my own. This review is part of a CelebrateLit blog tour.

    Murder on the Moor is a story that has all the elements of a baffling mystery one would expect of its genre. Set in 1930's England, it is complete with old stone mansions fully staffed with servants, expensive cars and jewel clad ladies who dress for dinner.

    Drew Farthering and his lovely wife Madeline have built a reputation of solving unsolvable crimes. He is not only wealthy and handsome but as clever as he is compassionate. She is beautiful and charming but also the perfect confidant. Julianna Deering expertly captured the essence of the wealthy sleuthing couple. I could almost imagine Nick and Nora Charles staying at Bloodworth Park Lodge, but Drew and Madeline are the guests of Beaky and Sabrina Bloodworth.

    Murder on the Moor (A Drew Farthering Mystery Book #5) by [Deering, Julianna]The story began in earnest when a quiet evening at Farthering Place was interrupted by one Hubert (Beaky) Bloodworth, Drew's chum back in his Eton days. He had just driven 200 miles to entreat Drew and Madeline to see who is behind dreadful mischief on the moor. Topping off all the mysterious goings on, someone committed the unthinkable by murdering the vicar.

    The moor is lonely and desolate, generally not a place to wander about and adding fog to the mix spells danger. Remnants of an old church tower, an abandoned kiln and an oversized dog had this reader breathing rapidly as I turned the pages for more. As one murder leads to another one has to wonder how this second murder could possibly be linked to each other in such a quiet village as Bunting's Nest.

    Reading about the moor I was reminded of Bronte's Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre. With a cast of savory characters such as Rhys Delwin, the gamekeeper, I could only imagine his bearing a resemblance to the likes of Heathcliff. The author also prominently placed the Bronte books within the homes of the characters as if to spark even more interest of the moors.

    Several red herrings cleverly add to the mix of clues to throw the reader off of the trail of the killer. Everything is tied up in a neat bundle in the end though, to everyone's satisfaction.

    Also reminiscent of Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane I was pleased to see a reference to The Nine Tailors by Dorothy L Sayers in this book. Wealthy couples who love to play detectives in their leisurely lives have proven a successful formula for mystery writers. I recommend Murder on the Moor if you enjoy this genre. It will not disappoint you. Simply put the kettle on and settle down for a good read.
