Rules of Murder (A Drew Farthering Mystery) by Julianna Deering is a fun, intriguing mystery that will keep you guessing until the end. A historical mystery set at an English manor, we meet Drew Farthing, his family, and his friends. When Drew comes home from holiday to a house full of people he takes exception to the guest in HIS room. When that matter is settled the surprises keep coming with the arrival of more guests and a party planned on the estate. When he and another guest find a body in the greenhouse, Drew and two of his friends start to play amateur detective to solve the mystery as the bodies continue to show up.
This book was slow to start with a lot of characters introduced in a short amount of time but all pertinant to the story. There is a romance in the story as well. With a subtle journey for Drew to find his faith again, a friend to keep him straight, and crazy guidelines for a murder mystery, this book is well worth the read. It is also a good book for any age group beyond the beginner reader. Great addition to any home library.
