bookshelves: historical-fiction, mystery

(I picked this up because of the 20s style drawing on the cover, and thought the concept (upper class female detective in the 20s) might be a disappointment after reading several novels in that vein. Bury Her Deep was actually great - Dandy Gilver, the main character, living a staid middle class life in the country, is asked to visit the small town of Luckenlaw to investigate a mysterious dark stranger who accosts the women of the town as they're walking home at night. The characters are fantastic, as is the insular atmosphere of the town - while there are some creepy moments, it's mostly a light hearted and funny mystery, particularly with Dandy's sarcastic asides to the reader - I really enjoyed it.
