Rules of Murder (a Drew Farthering mystery) by Julianna Deering is set in the 1930s in England. The author attributes many mystery authors of "old" with inspiring and influencing her. Rules of Murder is a good story that will have you trying to pick up all of the clues and guessing throughout. There's also a touch of romance that I can see being carried over into a sequel.
I enjoy mystery books and really liked this one. There was some religious content so I could see some readers being offended if they hadn't expected it, but it wasn't a big part of the book. I sometimes wondered if the characters were saying something an "American" way or an "English" way, but I'm not an expert.
