Murder on the Moor by Julianna Deering
About the Book: At the urgent request of an old school friend, Drew and Madeline Farthering come to Bloodworth Park Lodge in the midst of the Yorkshire moors, a place as moody and mysterious as a Brontë hero. There have been several worrisome incidents out on the moor–property destroyed, fires started, sheep and cattle scattered–and worst of all, the vicar has been found dead on the steps of the church.
Drew’s friend is obviously smitten with his bride of eight months, though it’s hard to imagine what she sees in the awkward man. Drew can’t help wondering if her affections lie more with the man’s money and estate, while her romantic interests focus on their fiery Welsh gamekeeper. As the danger grows ever closer, it’s up to Drew to look past his own prejudices, determine what is really going on, and find the killer before it’s too late.
My Thoughts: Murder mysteries are so much fun to read so of course I wanted to check out this one when it was offered to me by the publisher. I’ve previously read Julianna Deering books so going into Murder on the Moor I knew it’d be a good book. Of course it is, and you can’t help but get wrapped up in it. The characters and setting are solid and the story line just draws you in. It’s a great weekend escape from a hectic work week.
