“Murder at the Mikado” by Julianna Deering

Another masterfully woven Drew Farthering Mystery. As his wedding day is fast approaching, Drew has no time for mysteries and murders…especially if they involved a former flame.  But circumstances and promises tie him to resolving the issues that keep cropping up much to his fiancee displeasure.

Much more than a whodunit, this book touches on events of the past and how a child of God should respond to past hurts and present concerns. These issues spring naturally from the book,  making the characters that much more knowable, vulnerable and lovable.

The mystery itself was (thankfully) less chilling than the previous book, and the foreshadowing of whodunit was clearer. But the author was good a weaving in just enough doubt to keep her readers guessing until the end just who the real murderer is. In a world full of actors and intrigue, how will Drew and his familiar friends crack the case?

Thank you to NetGalley (https://www.netgalley.com/) and Bethany House for providing me with this book to read and review.
