    In the Nick of Time

    I have to admit I did not figure this one out quickly like some of the others. It was a great read and love this series as I have said before. The characters keep growing as we go and it is nice to see some of them come around and actually mature a bit, but they still stay funny at times.

    I heart Mrs. Jeffries

    Love all of these books - wish there were more of them - the older ones are hard to find.

    Great series

    Brightwell does a super job of telling a story and bringing the characters to life. I love the Mrs. Jeffries books--she hasn't written a bad one yet.

    Mrs. Jeffries is on the case!

    If you haven't met Mrs. Jeffries, you should. She combines housekeeping and sleuthing, and always seems to help. Mrs. Jeffries, and her fellow servants, help Inspector Witherspoon, but never let on. This is one of her better cases. You will enjoy them all.

    All of the stories by thia author are captivating

    I look forward to each novel and always try to figure it out before it is unfolded. Good subplots and the characters keep you guessing

    A Great Who Done It!

    What do you get when a man is killed upstairs but everybody is accounted for downstairs during the time of his death? Murder. This story takes place in England which will involve the Scotland yard. This mystery has great and interesting characters, such as Inspector Witherspoon, and the victim's wife. What is believed to be suicide quickly turns to murder when Inspector Witherspoon begins to investigate and nobody including the staff is safe from his suspicions. I love great books like this.

    Reading a Mrs. Jeffries Victorian whodunit is paraphrasing the Lays¿ potato chip commercial you can¿t read just one

    A tea party is commencing at Humphrey House, but the owner of the place, train devotee Francis Humphreys fails to be with his guests. Relatives and friends become concerned because he is a punctual person. A knock on his door goes unanswered. Recently Francis has been forgetful as if he was in an early stage of senility. All talking at the party abruptly ends when a shot is heard. Everyone rushes to Francis¿ room where they find him dead, a bullet to his head. They call the cops and Scotland Yard sends their top detective Inspector Witherspoon to investigate what looks like a suicide by a man losing his mind.<BR/><BR/>The Inspector is disgusted as he is stuck with as his assistant Inspector Niven¿s¿ nephew Lionel Gates; Witherspoon would rather have Constable Barnes whom he respects. Still they interview the guests and investigate motives; most inherit part of Francis¿ estate. However opportunity remains elusive as every attendee had an alibi as all of them were in the drawing room together when the shot was heard. Witherspoon¿s housekeeper Mrs. Jeffries and the rest of the downstairs staff secretly investigate in hopes of finding clues to assist their kind employer and prevent a killer from murdering again.<BR/><BR/>Reading a Mrs. Jeffries Victorian whodunit is paraphrasing the Lays¿ potato chip commercial you can¿t read just one. The latest case is a fabulous locked room police procedural with all the suspects providing alibis for one another as they were together having tea. Witherspoon is as always solves the case, but is clueless that his housekeeping staff conducts an inquiry with the downstairs employed at Humphrey House. Fans will enjoy this fine historical mystery that showcases how the police conduct an official investigation and how the amateur sleuths perform their version.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
