Title: Murder at the Mikado
Author: Julianna Deering
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: July 1st, 2014

From GoodReads
Just as Drew Farthering thinks his life has found smooth waters, Fleur Landis, an old flame, reappears in his life. She's married now, no longer an actress, and he expects she'll soon disappear--until she comes to him in dire need. The lead actor in her old troupe's production of The Mikado has been murdered, and Fleur is the police's number one suspect.

Drew would love nothing more than to just focus on his fiance, Madeline, and their upcoming wedding, but he can't leave Fleur in the lurch--even if she did break his heart once. As Drew, Nick, and Madeline dive into the murder, they discover more going on behind the scenes of the theater troupe than could ever have been imagined. Nearly everyone had a motive, and alibis are few and far between. It's Drew's most complicated case yet.
Why I'm Waiting:
This series has been such a thrill to follow! Drew is a wonderful character who has an amazing ability with words. I can't wait to see how this series closes out. The mystery and the crimes are so well thought out.
