When the village of Farthering St. John is stunned by a series of murders, Drew Farthering is drawn again into the sleuthing game.

Drew Farthering wanted nothing more than to end the summer of 1932 with the announcement of his engagement. Instead, he finds himself caught up in another mysterious case when the family solicitor is found murdered, an antique hatpin with a cryptic message, Advice to Jack, piercing his chest.

Evidence of secret meetings and a young girl's tearful confession point to the victim's double life, but what does the solicitor's murder have to do with the murder of a physician on the local golf course? Nothing, it would seem--except for another puzzling note, affixed with a similar-looking bloodied hatpin.

Soon the police make an arrest in connection with the murders, but Drew isn't at all certain they have the right suspect in custody. And why does his investigation seem to be drawing him closer and closer to home?

About the Author

DeAnna Julie Dodson is the author of The Chastelayne Trilogy, and as Julianna Deering is the author of the Drew Farthering Mysteries.

DeAnna is a Dallas native and has lived in North Texas all her life. Although her degree is in business, her real interest has always been in literature, music and the fine arts.

Medieval English history and Shakespeare are particular favorites of hers and, along with her  Christian faith, have most influenced her medieval trilogy: In Honor Bound, By Love Redeemed, and To Grace Surrendered.

DeAnna is also a huge fan of cozy mysteries, especially those written by Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers and Margery Allingham. That has, of course, influenced her English cozy series, The Drew Farthering Mysteries, as well as her contemporary mysteries for Annie's Attic.

DeAnna also loves cross stitch, quilting, Dallas Stars hockey, and her cats: Eloise, Elizabeth and Petie.
