Death at Thorburn Hall

GIVEAWAY
DEERING, JULIANNA
DEATH AT THORBURN HALL

Investigating a suspicious accident leads Drew on a path that points to international intrigue and ever-growing danger.

Drew Farthering arrives in idyllic Scotland for the 1935 British Open at Muirfield, hoping for a relaxing holiday with his wife, Madeline, and friend Nick. But death meets him once again when Lord Rainsby, their host at Thorburn Hall, is killed in a suspicious riding accident -- only days after confiding in Drew his fears that his business partner was embezzling funds.

Thorburn Hall is filled with guests, and as Drew continues to dig, he realizes that each appears tohave dark motives for wanting Rainsby out of the way. Together with Madeline and Nick, he must sort through shady business dealings, international intrigue, and family tensions to find a killer who always seems to be one step ahead.

My Review:

A note to those who aren't period cozy mystery fans -- you'll be relieved to know that this is last book in the Drew Farthering series (to date) so I'm all caught up -- finally! So thankful for a public library that purchased the series and for the oodles of readers putting holds on them. That"s why I had to read them in quick succession -- I got them all on the same day and you can't renew a book that has holds on it. So,without further ado, here's my last Drew Farthering review for awhile.

Just when I thought the Drew Farthering Mystery series couldn't get any better -- it does! Drew and Madeline are in fine form as they battle an intrepid killer and some surprising political intrigue -- this is Britain just years before World War II after all. As always the romance between Drew and Madeline makes me giddy and loyal friend Nick finally gets his chance in a secondary love story. Nothing like giving this reader exactly what she wants! The mystery is twisty, turny with plenty of unexpected bumps along the way and just the right dose of humour to lighten even the most tense scenes. Fans of BBC period mystery series will adore Drew Farthering and I think we all need to start up a petition to get them to turn these books (six to date) into their next blockbuster success.

  10. So, I've only read 1 book by this author and it was way back in 2013. Is this a series that needs to be read in sequence?

    1. I read a few of them out of order. The only over arcing element is the romance between Drew and Madeline and only in that it progresses to an engagement and marriage. So I definitely think you can read them out of order. Each mystery is specific to each book. Good luck, Dianna.

  11. I just need the previous book in the series to catch up to this one. I almost love this series for the book covers alone. They feed into my love of all things retro. tlhcoupon(at)Hotmail(dot)com

    1. I want to make a collage of those covers only that would be ripping them off books -- gasp! -- and I can't bring myself to do that. Sigh. Good luck, Terrill.
