Overview

Minerva Kenny is a dear woman, but her tendency to "borrow" things without asking has finally caught up with her. William Barrett has learned Minerva's shameful secret, and he's holding it over her head. Mrs. Jeffries and the staff at Upper Edmonton Gardens have hatched a scheme to save her-but when they try to recover the damning evidence from Barrett, they discover something more shocking: Barrett's corpse. Considering the victim's wicked ways, Minerva is far from the only suspect. And when Inspector Witherspoon's cook is called away suddenly, Mrs. Jeffries finds herself doing double duty: cooking for the household and trying to cook this killer's goose.

“Oh dear. Mrs. Goodge, the cook, is away, and the staff has to help cook the meals in her absence. The trouble is, none of them remotely measure up, and they and the Inspector have to eat horrible meals. The Inspector, of course, is too polite to complain, and only asks now and then if Mrs. Jeffries (the housekeeper and leader of the staff) has found a replacement cook. Of course they can't hire a replacement cook - the staff has to investigate the murder in SECRET, and it wouldn't do to have a stranger in the house. But they can't very well tell the Inspector that.” This one was just so funny with the cook and the rest of the staff trying to fill in –and her outrage when she gets back just after the murder is solved! The mystery was well plotted, written and thoroughly enjoyed by me! GREAT READ!!!

British, Victorian era Mrs. Jeffries, along with her band of friends and household servant sleuths set out on another murder solving caper, secretly assisting beloved Inspector Whitherspoon. Delightfully well-written British cozy mystery series. Best read in order No swearing, sex, or gore.
