Murder on the Moor by Julianna Deering
Once again, Drew and Madeline Farthering find themselves in the middle of a mystery . . . and it’s a good one! An old school chum of Drew’s, who goes by the unflattering nickname of Beaky, invites the Fartherings to his Bloodworth Park Lodge on the Yorkshire moors to investigate the murder of the beloved village vicar.
A host of suspects emerge . . . Sabrina, aloof and too beautiful for her doting husband, Beaky. Rhys Delwyn, the rugged, brooding gamekeeper at Bloodworth Lodge. Jem Nealy, the village ne’er-do-well and suspected poacher. And many more.
Along the way, family secrets are unearthed and a haunting romance is discovered.
I keep saying this about the Drew Farthering Mysteries, but this one is my favorite! In Murder on the Moor, Julianna Deering explores some fascinating characters and tips expectations on their ears. As in the best mysteries, I suspected everyone and no one. I was thrilled that the actual culprit was high on my list . . . although I didn’t know why. Come for the clues and the mystery, but stay for the characters and a beautiful tale of sacrificial love that will touch your heart.
