Julianna Deering’s style and flare shine through in “Murder at the Mikado”

the mikadoAn old flame and a murder don’t make for a very good start when planning a wedding.  Drew Farthering and Madeline Parker are planning the wedding of the century, but Fleur Landis, Drew’s former fling, comes into town and brings murder along with her.  The lead actor in Fleur’s former troupe’s production of “The Mikado” is murdered and Fleur is the number one suspect.  She is in desperate need of Drew’s sleuthing skills, but their history upsets Madeline.  This new case threatens to put a damper on the wedding plans as Madeline begs Drew to bow out of the investigation and Drew, who doesn’t like to go back on his word, continues to secretly follow the clues.  The only problem is that everyone has a motive and no one has an alibi for the night of the murder.  More people are being murdered and it’s beginning to look hopeless.

Julianna Deering has style and flair.  Her characters have come to life on the written page and give us a glimpse of life in 1930s England.  The characters are fun and the stories have gotten better and better.  I love how they all get tied together so neatly in the end even when it’s a development you were never expecting.
