I liked Rules of Murder, here's my review. Death by the Book (A Drew Farthering Mystery) by Julianna Deering takes off suddenly, without much back story so I would recommend reading Rules of Murder first. My favorite character was Madeline's Aunt Ruth. Aunt Ruth has come to visit and she is making her case against Drew quite obvious. She definitely livens up the book! But you'll have to read the book to find out if Drew can win her over.
Like Rules of Murder, Death by the Book is set in 1930s England. Though it wasn't crucial to reading the book, I easily became lost in the Shakespeare references. But this shows my lack of knowledge because the Shakespeare element actually makes the book more interesting.
