Review: Murder on the Moor by Julianna Deering

In this Poirot-isque novel Drew and Madeline are called on to solve the murder of a village vicar, someone with no enemies. While investigating that murder, an old woman who used to be a governess is also murdered. She had no enemies either and Drew is hard-pressed to find either suspect or motive. Added to it all, someone's cut the brake lines on a car, and there's a huge dog running around leaving spectral footprints! Also, this is fourth or fifth in the series I think. How have I never read these before????

I believe I'll give this book 5 stars!

1: I was absolutely positively transported back in time! I could feel myself there, and not here. I was gone. (I would so watch this if it were a movie!)

2: So this plot was so crazy! The only thing I explained correctly was the source of the huge paw prints! The killer was not who I expected it to be, in more ways than one! Don't jump to conclusions! Ever. Also, I may regret reading this right before bed...

3: Madeline and Drew are the perfect couple! Their teamwork and devotion is so amazing! Help!!! I can't!

4: I loved all the characters! Everyone was so real! Even the ones without many lines... I feel that I'd recognize them if I were to ever meet them! (Don't worry, I haven't gone off the deep end. A very small part of me does recognize the fictionality of this work. Also, did I just make up a word?)

5: I absolutely loved the references to classical literature such as the Bronte sisters and Sir Arthur Canon Doyle! Anyone that is a classic lover will enjoy that aspect to this amazing(!!!!) mystery!

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.


  1. Awww, thank you so much! I'm thrilled to know you liked the book. I'd love to know what you think of the rest of the series. :)
