“Murder on the Moor” by Julianna Deering is a novel about friendship, clandestine activities, village eccentrics, and murder. The dialogue reeks of Britain. I found this very enjoyable. This novel takes place in the Yorkshire moors in the village of Bunting’s Nest. Drew and Madeline Fathering have earned a reputation for sleuthing and solving mysteries. When Drew’s old college classmate Beaky’s calls Drew for help, he and Madeline can hardly refuse. Beaky’s Bloodworth Park Lodge has become the scene of small crimes and unexplained worrisome incidents that are scaring the life out of his wife. After the murder of the old vicar of the church someone needs to investigate. Beaky welcomes Drew and Madeline to his home, not so much Beaky’s wife, Sabrina. After the murder of an elderly woman follows on the heels of the vicar’s demise, everyone is suspect. As the comment goes…the plot thickens. I did not have an inkling of the ending. It was a complete surprise and worth every word read to get there. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries and anything British.
I received a complimentary print copy from NightOwlReviews.com for reading and review.
