Death at Thorburn Hall by Julianna Deering

Sleuth Drew Farthering is at it again in this murder mystery by Julianna Deering. While Drew is vacationing at Thorburn Hall with his wife and friends, his host dies in an accident. After doing some investigating, Drew finds out that the death wasn't actually an accident after all, but murder. Drew is on the case and tries using his sleuthing skills to tie up the loose ends and solve this mystery. But the challenge and danger increases when more people keep showing up murdered. Drew must try to keep his loved ones and himself safe while attempting to make sure the murderer doesn't strike again.

I can't say that the ending was quite unpredictable or memorable, but this was a dependable and clean read. I appreciated the references to faith and the fact that this book is not too graphic. Murder mysteries can sometimes be too much for me, but this one is not like that. Also, don't be surprised if you find yourself reading this one with an English accent. It's hard not to be transported to the time period in this book. The humorous exchanges between Drew and his wife and friends was also a nice touch. Thank you to Bethany House for the chance to review this book! These opinions are all my own.
