Murder on the Moor by Julianna Deering is a satisfying tale in the style of an old Nick and Nora Charles mystery. A husband and wife team travels to Bunting’s Nest to solve the mystery of a murdered vicar. It is a lovely mix of Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes and PBS’s Mystery!
The characters are well developed and believable. The dialogue is pertinent to the story, and the plot moves at a good pace. There are no paragraphs and pages you will want to skip. The settings might be a bit more descriptive, but the author’s strength is in her characters. Drew and Madeline Farthering are the perfect couple to invite to a party or a murder investigation.
Sometimes a mystery can let you down in the end. The solution is too quick. It doesn’t quite make sense. Most frustrating, clues are kept from the reader. But I was not disappointed, and though I picked the right suspect, a delightful twist at the end trumped my mystery-savvy deduction.
If you like your mysteries nostalgic, mixed with a little light romance, a good dose of suspense and classical literature, you will enjoy Murder on the Moor.
I received a copy of this book free from Bethany House to review.
