    There is something about these novels that always makes me think of the Thin Man movies, but Death at Thorburn Hall did even more so. There's a sweet development in a romance, and Drew and Madeline are as sweet and cute as ever, so like Nick and Nora. This time Drew and Madeline are of...

    Can Drew find another killer before it's too late? Can this really be goodbye to Drew, Madeline, and Nick, at least for now? No!!! I've been a fan of this series since I bought the first book and was transported to a time and world long gone. I have eagerly awaited each new book and...

    It's my own fault that I picked a book later in a series to read/review without having read the other books. (This is a recurring theme in my life, which you'll know if you've spent any amount of time on my blog.) So yes, spoilers for previous books abounded in Death at Thorburn Hall. ...

    4.5 stars An excellent Golden-Age style mystery. There's a subtle beginning, and then Bam! A murder. I love the vintage 1930s flavor to it, and the way it feels as though it could have actually been written in that time period. I jumped into this one without having read any of the...

    Once again, Julianna Deering brings us the delightful team of Drew and Madeline Farthering and their friends Nick and Carrie. Death at Thorburn Hall provides witty banter, a brooding Scottish setting, characters with layers of secrets, and a mystery that keeps you guessing to the end. ...

    There is something about these novels that always makes me think of the Thin Man movies, but Death at Thorburn Hall did even more so. There's a sweet development in a romance, and Drew and Madeline are as sweet and cute as ever, so like Nick and Nora. This time Drew and Madeline are of...

    Reading the Farthering mysteries has been a delight. I grew up reading Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers and Ngaio Marsh so these novels by Deering are ones I thoroughly enjoy. I like Drew Farthering. He's an amateur detective whom none of the officials want to have around interferin...

    Can Drew find another killer before it's too late? Can this really be goodbye to Drew, Madeline, and Nick, at least for now? No!!! I've been a fan of this series since I bought the first book and was transported to a time and world long gone. I have eagerly awaited each new book and...

    This is the first I have seen of the Drew Fathering series, but I'm glad I found out about it. Julianna Deering does a good job at writing a story that holds your attention and keeps you turning the page to find out what happens. There is a variety of story types in Death at Thorbur...

    A good read! I really enjoyed this Drew Farthering mystery, it being the second I've read in the series. Though I did find it's pace a little slower in the beginning, and I was a little sad at who ends up being the baddie. I really liked the person and didn't want them to be the baddie...

    It's my own fault that I picked a book later in a series to read/review without having read the other books. (This is a recurring theme in my life, which you'll know if you've spent any amount of time on my blog.) So yes, spoilers for previous books abounded in Death at Thorburn Hall. ...

    So I've come to the end of another Drew Farthering mystery. Despite the inevitable let down (this is completely my own fault for gobbling it down, instead of reading it slowly and savoring it!), I'm left with this happy glow at the end of this one. There were soooo many things to lo...

    Drew and Madeline Farthering have been invited up to Thorburn Hall in Scotland for the week of the British Open at Muirfield by Drew?s cousin, Lady Louisa Rainsby. Nick is joining them, as is Madeline?s friend Carrie who is coming for a visit from America (and they hope Nick can co...

    Death at Thorburn Hall is another (and I think final? Don?t quote me on that!) installment in The Drew Farthering Mysteries and the second of the series that I have read and reviewed. This time, Drew and Madeline have been invited to enjoy the British Open at one of Drew?s relative...

    Death at Thorburn Hall, as the name suggests, is a murder mystery. Drew and Madeline Farthering have come to Scotland to visit Drew?s distant relations and to attend ?The Open??which is a golf tournament. But all is not as it seems, and their host, Lord Rainsby, has an ulterior...

    Travel back to mid-1930s England for another delightful adventure with Drew and Madeline Farthering. DEATH AT THORBURN HALL is Julianna Derring?s sixth book in her Drew Fathering Mysteries series. Ms. Derring?s characters are always an eclectic mix with surprises in store for every...

    My favourite detective is back on the case! Not only that, but with Carrie?s return from the States, the whole gang?s back together again! Unfortunately, Carrie?s not as enthusiastic about amateur sleuthing as her friends (those who have read some of the earlier novels will know ...

    "Death at Thorburn Hall" is a historical mystery set in 1935 in England. It's the sixth book in a series. You don't need to read the previous novels to understand this one, and this novel didn't spoil the previous mysteries. The characters had depth and reacted realistically to even...

    Wonderful series, interesting settings and a great mystery that leaves you guessing until the end! ...

    Drew Farthering arrives in idyllic Scotland for the 1935 British Open at Muirfield, hoping for a relaxing holiday with his wife, Madeline, and friend Nick. But death meets him once again when Lord Rainsby, their host at Thorburn Hall, is killed in a suspicious riding accident--only day...

    Drew and Madeline Farthering are at it again stumbling across murder and mayhem, this time in Scotland. Carrie Holland has returned leaving Nick in a bit of spot. All this sleuthing brings back bad memories and emotional pain for Carrie, but Nick is rather fond of helping Drew find the...

    I love history. I love suspense. Putting them together seems to be a great novel for me. With historical mysteries, many of them leave something to be desired in my opinion. But Julianna Deering and Rachel McMillan are my favorite two authors who write historical mysteries in the earl...

    In this sixth installment in the Drew Farthering Mystery series, Drew, Madeline, Nick & Carrie are heading to Scotland for the British Open. When Lord Rainsby, their host, ends up dead, Drew is compelled to check it out. I loved that Chief Inspector Birdsong happened to be in Sco...

    I write book reviews for basically two authors these days, and Julianna Deering is one of them. I write my feelings about the book, which was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for my honest review. The latest in the Drew Farthering series is one of the best. It?s book n...

    Drew Farthering arrives in idyllic Scotland for the 1935 British Open at Muirfield hoping for a relaxing vacation, but he soon finds a mystery on his hands. Lord Rainsby, his host at Thorburn Hall, fears his business partner may be embezzling and asks Drew to quietly investigate. Befor...

    Can Drew find another killer before it's too late? Can this really be goodbye to Drew, Madeline, and Nick, at least for now? No!!! I've been a fan of this series since I bought the first book and was transported to a time and world long gone. I have eagerly awaited each new book and...

    This is the first I have seen of the Drew Fathering series, but I'm glad I found out about it. Julianna Deering does a good job at writing a story that holds your attention and keeps you turning the page to find out what happens. There is a variety of story types in Death at Thorbur...

    A good read! I really enjoyed this Drew Farthering mystery, it being the second I've read in the series. Though I did find it's pace a little slower in the beginning, and I was a little sad at who ends up being the baddie. I really liked the person and didn't want them to be the baddie...

    It's my own fault that I picked a book later in a series to read/review without having read the other books. (This is a recurring theme in my life, which you'll know if you've spent any amount of time on my blog.) So yes, spoilers for previous books abounded in Death at Thorburn Hall. ...

    4.5 stars An excellent Golden-Age style mystery. There's a subtle beginning, and then Bam! A murder. I love the vintage 1930s flavor to it, and the way it feels as though it could have actually been written in that time period. I jumped into this one without having read any of the...

    Once again, Julianna Deering brings us the delightful team of Drew and Madeline Farthering and their friends Nick and Carrie. Death at Thorburn Hall provides witty banter, a brooding Scottish setting, characters with layers of secrets, and a mystery that keeps you guessing to the end. ...

    There is something about these novels that always makes me think of the Thin Man movies, but Death at Thorburn Hall did even more so. There's a sweet development in a romance, and Drew and Madeline are as sweet and cute as ever, so like Nick and Nora. This time Drew and Madeline are of...

    Just when I thought the Drew Farthering Mystery series couldn't get any better -- it does! Drew and Madeline are in fine form as they battle an intrepid killer and some surprising political intrigue -- this is Britain just years before World War II after all. As always the romance betw...

    This was the perfect final book to the series, where all those little things--like Nick and Carrie's relationship and a certain mystery I had completely forgotten about--are finally resolved. I loved the sense of the international scene in this one--not so much the golfing (a very mino...

    Drew and Madeline Farthering have been invited up to Thorburn Hall in Scotland for the week of the British Open at Muirfield by Drew?s cousin, Lady Louisa Rainsby. Nick is joining them, as is Madeline?s friend Carrie who is coming for a visit from America (and they hope Nick can co...

    "Death at Thorburn Hall" is a historical mystery set in 1935 in England. It's the sixth book in a series. You don't need to read the previous novels to understand this one, and this novel didn't spoil the previous mysteries. The characters had depth and reacted realistically to even...

    I love history. I love suspense. Putting them together seems to be a great novel for me. With historical mysteries, many of them leave something to be desired in my opinion. But Julianna Deering and Rachel McMillan are my favorite two authors who write historical mysteries in the earl...

    4.5 stars An excellent Golden-Age style mystery. There's a subtle beginning, and then Bam! A murder. I love the vintage 1930s flavor to it, and the way it feels as though it could have actually been written in that time period. I jumped into this one without having read any of the...

    I write book reviews for basically two authors these days, and Julianna Deering is one of them. I write my feelings about the book, which was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for my honest review. The latest in the Drew Farthering series is one of the best. It?s book n...

    Can Drew find another killer before it's too late? Can this really be goodbye to Drew, Madeline, and Nick, at least for now? No!!! I've been a fan of this series since I bought the first book and was transported to a time and world long gone. I have eagerly awaited each new book and...

    This is the first I have seen of the Drew Fathering series, but I'm glad I found out about it. Julianna Deering does a good job at writing a story that holds your attention and keeps you turning the page to find out what happens. There is a variety of story types in Death at Thorbur...

    A good read! I really enjoyed this Drew Farthering mystery, it being the second I've read in the series. Though I did find it's pace a little slower in the beginning, and I was a little sad at who ends up being the baddie. I really liked the person and didn't want them to be the baddie...

    It's my own fault that I picked a book later in a series to read/review without having read the other books. (This is a recurring theme in my life, which you'll know if you've spent any amount of time on my blog.) So yes, spoilers for previous books abounded in Death at Thorburn Hall. ...

    So I've come to the end of another Drew Farthering mystery. Despite the inevitable let down (this is completely my own fault for gobbling it down, instead of reading it slowly and savoring it!), I'm left with this happy glow at the end of this one. There were soooo many things to lo...

    Travel back to mid-1930s England for another delightful adventure with Drew and Madeline Farthering. DEATH AT THORBURN HALL is Julianna Derring?s sixth book in her Drew Fathering Mysteries series. Ms. Derring?s characters are always an eclectic mix with surprises in store for every...

    My favourite detective is back on the case! Not only that, but with Carrie?s return from the States, the whole gang?s back together again! Unfortunately, Carrie?s not as enthusiastic about amateur sleuthing as her friends (those who have read some of the earlier novels will know ...

    "Death at Thorburn Hall" is a historical mystery set in 1935 in England. It's the sixth book in a series. You don't need to read the previous novels to understand this one, and this novel didn't spoil the previous mysteries. The characters had depth and reacted realistically to even...

    Wonderful series, interesting settings and a great mystery that leaves you guessing until the end! ...

    Calling all Agatha fans! I often wonder what it would be like to live in the era when new Hercule Poirot mysteries were coming out. I've imagined opening a catalog and discovering that a new one was available, or reading an excerpt from one in my morning newspaper. There are probabl...
