Death at Thorburn Hall


Death at Thorburn Hall

Drew Farthering finds a new mystery on his hands when he arrives at Thorburn Hall in Scotland for the 1935 British Open. His host, Lord Rainsby, asks Drew to investigate a suspected embezzler--then dies in a suspicious accident the next day. However, the house is full of guests with potential motives. Can Drew discover the killer among them?

     I've been putting off writing this review because I'm in the middle of preparing for finals and my brain is mush and basically at the "what even is words?" stage, so writing anything has been a struggle, even if it's just a book review.

     But in that craziness, it was nice to sit down and read a pleasure book, which is what the Death at Thorburn Hall was. I love old-fashioned mysteries, and a book like this was just what I needed. My main complaint with this one was that I didn't think the plot picked up until nearly the end; it was hard for me to get really invested in the story until those last few chapters. Still, for fans of this series (and for anyone who likes a cozy mystery without loads of gore or scandal), Death at Thorburn Hall is a worthy addition to the Drew Farthering books.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
