Another badgermirlacca rec that turned out well!

Kerry Greenwood, Cocaine Blues (Phryne Fisher Mysteries): a very fun mystery set in Australia in the late 1920s. The heroine, Phryne Fisher, has multiple talents and quite a lot of money, and goes to investigate the daughter of acquaintances, at their request, because she's bored. She quickly becomes involved in what looks like two mysteries, and ends up with a maid and two cab drivers and various other friends, of whom my favorite was a woman doctor. The tone is very light and suited to the period. I'm definitely getting more of these.
