Until Amor's next book comes out, I would like something similar to Rules of Civility and A Gentleman in Moscow by other authors.

I didn't find the following novel especially likeable but it was reasonably well written and is popular with other readers (and similar to Amor Towles is a difficult request to fulfil):

Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney.

Although it is a period piece, I loved the spirit of, and the quality of the writing in Golden Hill by Francis Spufford for the same reasons that I loved A Gentleman in Moscow.

Never heard of Amor Towles, but I really liked Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk.

I'm reading Warlight and it has themes similar to A Gentleman in Moscow. Post WWII espionage, family, etc.
