Review: Rules of Murder (Drew Farthering Mystery #1) by Julianna Deering


About the book:
Introducing Drew Farthering

From the tip of his black Homburg hat to the crease in his cheviot trousers, he's the epitome of a stylish 1930s English gentleman. His 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 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 Farthering Place is who he or she appears to be -- not the blackmailer, not the adulterer, not the embezzler and not even Drew himself. Trying hard to remain one step ahead of the killer -- and trying harder to impress Madeline -- Drew must decide how far to take this dangerous game.

My thoughts:

Rules of Murder was a different read. Not bad, but not as good as I was hoping. The mystery was a bit confusing for me to follow at times and I'm not even sure why. I did really like the characters and I feel like as the series continues it will just get better and better.

All in all, a fine read and I liked it. Some parts were stellar, other moments just okay. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
