Reviews Murder at the Mikado (Drew Farthering Mystery, #3)

  • Pamela
    LOVED IT!!!! This delightful whodunit series, with the ever so charming and debonair Drew Farthering just gets better and better over time. Murder at the Mikado is the third installment, and perhaps my favorite - thus far - with the crackerjack detecting, host of quaint and quirky characters, the theatre elements and figurative duality, underlying relationship-angst teasers, and the jolly good English countryside/village nuances. Of course, where...

    Best yet from Julianna Deering. This is the third in the Drew Fathering series of murder mysteries. I read Agatha Christie as a young person and then for years seldom picked up a “who-done-it.” Juilianna Deering just may make a mystery fan out of me again. I am charmed by Drew and Madeline and the cast of quirky characters found within this book. The setting is England and the writing is classic and witty. It includes a delightful mix of mayh...

    Sometimes you just a need story to transport you to another time and place. This is it!While I love books 1 and 2, Rules of Murder and Death by the Book, I find that Murder at the Mikado is my favorite so far of the Drew Farthering mystery series. It has literally everything you could want from a novel set in the era of Poirot and Bertie Wooster. The niggling little complaint I had in Death by the Book, that I couldn't easily follow the trail of ...

    I adore this series! Every time I pick up an installment, I feel like I'm in the middle of a Thin Man mystery. This book, the third in the series, was the best yet. And the ending even felt like a Thin Man because the main suspects were all together in one place.Each story builds the romance between Drew Farthering and his girl Madeline Parker. Their romance is filled with believable twists and turns and I won't spoil that here. I love that each ...

    "Well, as the Mikado says, 'It's an unjust world, and virtue is triumphant only in theatrical performances.'"It certainly appears that way, when a popular theater owner/performer is brutally murdered and one of his many "indiscretions" is rumored to have done him in. It just so happens that Fleur Landis hovers in Drew Farthering's past as well; in his past regrets, unknown as yet to his lovely fiancé, Madeline Parker. When Fleur comes to Drew an...

    4.5 Stars. Just six short months since murder -- and the investigative bug -- entered Drew Farthering's life, he's found faith, purpose, and love. Preparing for his marriage to Madeline, life couldn't be sweeter, until a face from Drew's youth makes an unwelcome and shocking return to his life, bringing with her potent reminders of a past he'd thought long buried. Married to Farlinford Processing's new, and highly respectable, manager, by all app...

    I absolutely adore those murder mysteries that you can sink your teeth into, those ones that bring to mind the wonderful works of Agatha Christie, and so I have been very pleased with each book from Deering's talented pen. "Murder at the Mikado" is the third installment in the "Drew Farthering Mystery" series - and it had better not be the last because I just couldn't get enough! Drew and his fiancée Madeline end up back in the thick of a myster...

  • Tara Carpenter
    This series is Christian romance set in England in the 1930s. It is certainly not high literature, but cute and clean with a fun mystery. I thought this one manufactured too many problems between the love birds, but the mystery was better.
