Murder at the Mikado Julianna Deering is a great murder mystery book that kept me guessing til the very end. It was the third in a series, I believe, and I have not read the 2 books that came before this one. I could tell there was probably a back story that I had missed out on, but I did not feel lost at all when I read this book. I think she filled in enough of the details so that you do not have to have read the previous 2 books in order to understand what is going on in this one (although after reading this book, I would like to go back and read the others). This mystery kept me guessing right up until she revealed who the murderer was. I normally figure out whodunit way before it is revealed in the book, so this was a pleasant surprise. I really enjoyed the characters and writing style of this author. This is the first book I have read by Julianna Deering and I look forward to reading more.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
