Review of Murder at the Mikado

Murder at the Mikado

In Julianna Deering’s Murder at the Mikado, Drew Farthering’s wedding is fast approaching when an “old flame” asks for his help. Will he be willing, or even able to clear her name of murder before it’s too late? Or will Drew’s assistance in this case ruin his chances for a happy marriage?
Murder at the Mikado is the third in the series of Drew Farthering mysteries, but the first I have read. It can be taken as a stand-alone novel. As an Agatha Christie fan, I avoided reading it for a while because most Christian mysteries set in Britain written by American authors lack authenticity. However, apart from one scene and some inconsistencies in language, I was pleasantly surprised. I liked the setting, the characters, and the time period in which the novel was placed. The Christian themes were evident, but effectively understated. The plot was done well, and kept me guessing. If you are looking for an entertaining read without language or gory details, I happily recommend Murder at the Mikado.


I was given a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
