Murder at the Mikado Book Review


About the Book

Just as Drew Farthering thinks his life has found smooth waters, Fleur Landis, an old flame, reappears in his life. She's married now, no longer an actress, and he expects she'll soon disappear--until she comes to him in dire need. The lead actor in her old troupe's production of The Mikado has been murdered, and Fleur is the police's number one suspect.

Drew would love nothing more than to just focus on his fiance, Madeline, and their upcoming wedding, but he can't leave Fleur in the lurch--even if she did break his heart once. As Drew, Nick, and Madeline dive into the murder, they discover more going on behind the scenes of the theater troupe than could ever have been imagined. Nearly everyone had a motive, and alibis are few and far between. It's Drew's most complicated case yet. (Goodreads)

My Review

I have read the previous two books in this series and I still think that the first is the best. This book has a good twist and goes more into Drew and Madeline's relationship. Deering reminds me a bit of Anne Perry's writing but these books are unique in their own way. The mystery is surrounding Fleur and acting along with some candy that's been poisoned. The mystery part did not hold my attention as much as I had hoped. I was more interested in the relationship part in this book but thought the opposite while reading the second book. I still enjoy these characters but I'm ready for something new from Deering.

Four stars.
I highly recommend reading the first two books before picking this one up.

"I received this book from Bethany House for free in exchange for an honest review."
