Book Review: Death at Thornburn Hall

Do you enjoy a good mystery?

Are you a fan of Agatha Christie or Murder, She Wrote?

Then you will enjoy reading Death at Thornburn Hall by Julianna Deering.

Drew Farthering arrives with his wife, Madeline, and friend, Nick, to Muirfield, Scotland.  The 1935 British Open is under way, when their host, Lord Rainsby, is killed in a riding accident.

Drew and Nick set out to solve the murder mystery, which has many twists and turns.  At the same time Drew is seeking answers to his own past and dealing with an impostor and host of interesting characters.  On more than one occasion Drew is caught up in scandal, intrigue, murder and danger.  There is even a little romance throughout the story.

This is the first book I’ve read about Drew Farthering, although it is the sixth in the series featuring this character.

Ms. Deering continued to move the story forward throughout the book.  There was one section in the middle, where the seemed to crawl along for a short while.  {I’m hoping that is because I was so tired while I was reading.}  However, as the story progressed, I discovered that the book was impossible to put down for the last half of the book.

As Drew uncovered the mystery and murder, not everything or everyone was who or what I thought they might be.

I also appreciated that the author incorporated faith into the story.

I would definitely recommend Death at Thornburn Hall to anyone that enjoys a good mystery.  I look forward to reading some of the other books about Drew and his entourage.
