Product Description

Just as Drew Farthering thinks his life has found smooth waters, Fleur Landis, an old flame, reappears in his life. She's married now, no longer an actress, and he expects she'll soon disappear--until she comes to him in dire need. The lead actor in her old troupe's production of The Mikado has been murdered, and Fleur is the police's number one suspect.

Drew would love nothing more than to just focus on his fiance, Madeline, and their upcoming wedding, but he can't leave Fleur in the lurch--even if she did break his heart once. As Drew, Nick, and Madeline dive into the murder, they discover more going on behind the scenes of the theater troupe than could ever have been imagined. Nearly everyone had a motive, and alibis are few and far between. It's Drew's most complicated case yet.

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

    "Well, as the Mikado says, 'It's an unjust world, and virtue is triumphant only in theatrical performances.'"

    It certainly appears that way, when a popular theater owner/performer is brutally murdered and one of his many "indiscretions" is rumored to have done him in. It just so happens that Fleur Landis hovers in Drew Farthering's past as well; in his past regrets, unknown as yet to his lovely fianc, Madeline Parker. When Fleur comes to Drew and pleads for his help clearing her name before the authorities, Drew's past and present converge in such a way that his future nuptials suddenly become clouded and uncomfortable. "Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned?"

    Typical of Deering's previous novels in this series, "Murder at the Mikado" is a brilliant maze of clues and suspects, serving to both deceive and delight the reader while the path to justice serpentines around numerous curves ahead of its arrival at a satisfying conclusion. But murder is not the only mystery that Drew faces, his heart is in danger of dying a slow and painful death unless he can convince Madeleine that she is the other half of his whole, "till death do them part".

    Set in 1932, Murder at the Mikado is the third book in the Drew Farthing Series.

    Drew and Madeline have happily put the tragedies of the last few months behind them and are looking forward to their wedding. One evening Drews new plant manager Brent Landis and his wife come to dinner at Farthering St. John and much to Drews surprise Brents wife is an old love acquaintance of Drews.

    When the manager of the local theater is murder Drew and his estate manager Nick help out in the investigation only to find that their prime suspect is Brents wife Fluer, who is acting with the local production.

    Drew, Madeline and Nick stay true to character as in the first two books which is great because sometimes that doesnt always happen. And Aunt Ruth, dear Aunt Ruth, what a wonderful character addition she is. I loved reading her and what she adds to the story.

    This book lives up to the two previous books in the series, with wonderful writing, and the storyline that catches the reader from the beginning and keeps them hooked until the last page.

    You could read this independently of the first two book, but I think that it would be beneficial to read them in order. I would definitely recommend this series.

    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!
