The best Drew Farthering mystery so far


Death at Thorburn Hall (A Drew Farthering Mystery)Juianna Deering has outdone herself with the latest Drew Farthering mystery, “Death at Thorburn Hall”.  The Fartherings travel to Scotland to attend the 1935 British Open at Muirfield.  They are hoping for a relaxing holiday, but, as is usually the case, murder is the main event.  At first, Lord Rainsby’s death appears to be an accident, but when Lord Rainsby’s daughter, Joan, insists that Drew look into the incident convinced it was murder, the situation becomes entangled with shady business dealings, international intrigue and family tensions.

As always, the love story between Drew and Madeline Farthering continues to grow as Nick and Carrie’s relationship begins to blossom even when Carrie has her doubts about spending time with mystery-solving sleuths who are always getting themselves into danger.  Of all of Julianna Deering’s characters, I like Carrie the least.  And even though I found Carrie tiring at times, it didn’t take away from the fact that this story is the best Deering has written so far about the Fartherings.  It contained just enough humor and coyness.  The suspense and intrigue kept you engrossed and the surprise ending–you definitely won’t see that coming.

I am hoping that the Fartherings will come to America very soon.  I’d love to see what mischief they can get themselves into.
