I'm reading a mystery series by Catriona Mcperson, set in 1920s Scotland. The protagonist is Dandy Gilver, an upper class housewife who solves a problem for a friend, gets recommended to solve another and becomes a professional detective. I liked the Phryne Fisher series by the Australian author Kerry Greenwood, but I am all caught up, so I was happy to find this series. When I like an author, I tend to read the catalogue. I seem to like period settings, loved all the Falco books in ancient Rome , that series was by British author Lindsay Davis. I know there are all kind of interesting and diverse people in the world, hell I live in New Jersey, but I seem to enjoy being transported to other times and places when I read these mysteries.
I'll be grateful for any book series recommendations, as long as they are mysteries and do not contain graphic descriptions of torture or other horrible behavior. The murder description is OK, just not too much emphasis on gory details. I get bad dreams.
