Death at Thorburn Hall
Author: Julianna Deering
Publisher: Bethany House (a division of Baker Publishing Group)
When Madeline and Drew Farthering arrive at Lord and Lady Rainsby’s, it seems to be a pleasant time with expectations of the golf open and horse back riding with rounds of golf in between. They find that they’re not the only guests for the Open. One guest of interest is Count Kiznetsov, who they find interesting and entertaining in his character with all the different languages he speaks. Down the line though, Drew finds him more interesting than he could imagine.
However, the tables take a turn when Lord Rainsby is found to be murdered as well as three others. This leaves Drew and Madeline along with Nick to solve the mystery of why any of them would end up the victims of foul play. But, as always, there seems to be more to the story and Drew and Nick are determined to find the answers.
Along with the story plot, Drew has to delve into the lives of the guests that were attending the British Open and those staying at the Rainsby’s.
The story intertwines the intrigue along with the romantic interest of Drew’s friend and partner as well as Madeline’s best friend Carrie who has recently returned from the United States.
If you like murder mysteries, this one will keep your interest until all the details are revealed at the end as to who did the murders, whose lives are intertwined with others, and will there be a happy ending? The writing is with an ease of the written word to the reader, and the author has a good way of bringing you into the story of the characters.
I would give this book four stars.
