Waiting on Wednesday: Death by the Book

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each week allows you to spotlight an up-and-coming releases you are excited about.

Waiting On:
Title: Death by the Book
Author: Julianna Deering
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: March 4th, 2014

Synopsis:
From GoodReads
Drew Farthering wanted nothing more than to end the summer of 1932 with the announcement of his engagement. Instead, he finds himself caught up in another mysterious case when the family solicitor is found murdered, an antique hatpin with a cryptic message, Advice to Jack, piercing his chest.

Evidence of secret meetings and a young girl's tearful confession point to the victim's double life, but what does the solicitor's murder have to do with the murder of a physician on the local golf course? Nothing, it would seem--except for another puzzling note, affixed with a similar-looking bloodied hatpin.

Soon the police make an arrest in connection with the murders, but Drew isn't at all certain they have the right suspect in custody. And why does his investigation seem to be drawing him closer and closer to home?
Why I'm Waiting:
I loved the first book in this series, Rules of Murder. It was fun and offered a chance to visit England in the 1930's. It was a wonderful story full of mystery and suspense. I can't wait to dive back into this time and see what these characters have been up to!

What are you waiting on this week?

I haven't heard of this series but the 1930s sounds really interesting!
