Introducing Drew Farthering

From The Tip of his black Homburg to the crease in his stylish cheviot trousers, he’s the epitome of a stylish 1930s English gentleman. His only problem? The body he just discovered.

Drew Farthering loves a good mystery, although he generally expects to find it in the pages of a novel, not on the grounds of his country estate.

With the help of beautiful and whip-smart Madeline Parker, a guest from America, Drew proposes to use the lessons he’s learned reading his mysteries to solve the crime. Before long, he realizes this is no lark, and no one at Farthering Place is who he or she appears to be–not the butler nor blackmailer, the chauffeur nor embezzler. Trying hard to remain one step ahead of the killer–and trying harder to impress Madeline–Drew must decide how far to take this dangerous game.

My Thoughts:

Though this wasn’t the worst book I had read, it was also not the best. I just couldn’t seem to get into the story. It didn’t grab my interest. Sure there were a few interesting parts, but, for the most part I couldn’t get myself into the story and enjoy it. I didn’t even finish the book.

I was excited to get my hands on this book, as I love mystery novels, especially those that include a little romance. So when I started to read the first half of the book, I was sadly disappointed. There is nothing like getting a book that you really wanted only to find out that it wasn’t at all what you expect it to be.

I haven’t read any of Julianna Deering’s other books yet, but might check them out sometime.
