About the Book

Introducing Drew Farthering. From the tip of his black homburg to the crease of his cheviot trousers he's the epitome of a stylish 1930's English Gentleman. The only problem? The body he just discovered. Drew Farthering loves a good mystery, although he generally expects to find it in the pages of a novel, not on the grounds of his country estate.

With the help of the beautiful and whip-smart Madeline Parker, a guest from America, Drew proposes to use the lessons he's learned reading his mysteries to solve the crime. Before long, he realizes this is no lark, and no one at the Fartherling Place is who her or she appears to be - not the butler, nor the blackmailer, the chauffeur, or the embezzler. Trying hard to remain one step ahead of the killer, and trying even harder to impress his American visitor Madeline, Drew must decide how far to take this dangerous game.

My Thoughts

I love a good mystery, I just can't help it. Trying to figure out who committed the crime and coming up with my own theories is a great way to spend my time. I love how Julianna Deering develops her characters, and the mystery so you don't know what's going on until the very end. For me the ending was a huge surprise and I hate to admit it but the love story aspect of Rules of Murder was my favorite part. If you love Dead Men Kill you'll love this book.
