Book Review & Free Chapter | Murder At The Mikado by Julianna Deering

When a celebrated ACTOR IS FOUND MURDERED IN HIS DRESSING ROOM, all signs point to Drew’s old flame. But behind the curtains nothing is what it seems and this quickly becomes his MOST puzzling case YET…

Murder At The Mikado
Julianna Deering

*** Special THANK YOU to the publisher for providing me with a review copy. My review is my own personal opinion.***



Just as Drew Farthering thinks his life has calmed down some, Fleur Landis, a former girlfriend, reappears, in dire need of his help. She’s married now, no longer an actress–but the lead actor in her former troupe’s production of The Mikado has been murdered, and Fleur is the police’s number one suspect.

Drew would rather focus on his fiancée, Madeline Parker, and their upcoming wedding, but he can’t leave Fleur and her family in the lurch–even if she did break his heart once. As Drew, Nick, and Madeline begin investigating, they discover more going on behind the scenes of the theater troupe than could ever have been imagined. It seems nearly everyone had a motive, and alibis are few and far between.

Both the murder case and the presence of the beautiful, exotic Fleur put a heavy strain on Drew and Madeline’s relationship. Will their still-young romance survive the pressure?

This book-lover turned amateur sleuth may be in way over his head with his latest case!!!
Let me tell you why Murder At The Mikado is a must-read:
THE SHOW MUST GO ON- Author Julianna Deering has chosen to use an awesome setting for her murder in this latest installment in the Drew Farthering series….the theater!!! Oh, there’s plenty of drama and suspects out the wazoo!!!
THE CHRISTIE-ESK FEEL- I have said and will continue to say that fans of Agatha Christie must must must read Deering…in my heart she is the Queen of this wonderful era of mystery fiction. This book just oozes the glitz and glam of this time period….plus murder, of course!
THE MESSAGE BEHIND THE MYSTERY- This book is a wonderful reminder that our past mistakes don’t have to destroy us! Even the can-do-no-wrong, handsome Drew Farthering has made some wrong choices…we all have. To me, this book shows that God takes the good, the bad and yes-even the ugly and can turn it around for our good and for His glory!
