The Inspector and Mrs. Jeffries (Mrs. Jeffries Series #1) by Emily Brightwell

The first novel in the beloved New York Times bestselling Victorian mystery series featuring Inspector Witherspoon and his housekeeper, Mrs. Jeffries—two of the most charming characters to ever crack a case!

She keeps house for Inspector Witherspoon...and keeps him on his toes. Everyone's awed by his Scotland Yard successes—but they don't know about his secret weapon. No matter how messy the murder or how dirty the deed, Mrs. Jeffries's polished detection skills are up to the task...proving that behind every great man there's a great woman—and that a crime-solver's work is never done.

I won't go into detail on every book in this series, but just will say that I read them all....several times....loved them all. Fell in love with Mrs. Jeffries and the whole household of helpers she accumulates through the series. Clean books as well.....not a bunch of blood and gore or sex. Ah refreshing

This book begins a wonderful cozy series that has stuck to me like Elmers glue- safe, non-toxic, easy to use and availble everwhere. For example, once you have read one character's description, it sticks, pretty much as written, for every book thereafter. They do grow along the way, and of course there is a wedding or two, " 'cor blimey", but the murders themselves are well done and a few had me almost stumped. If you do not like cozies, or "'cor blimeys", this is not the SERIES for you, but try at least one one for size. I like Mistletoe Mixup for a one timer, but this one is the begining, hopefully, of a wonderful, sometimes predictable, always fun series. Me mum luvs 'em too, and bob is indeed my uncle....actually brother-in-law, now I think on it.

The first book in this British cozy mystery series. Set in the Victorian era, Inspector Witherspoon and his loyal household will capture your heart! If you are a fan of Downton Abbey, Jan Karan, Miss Read or Miss Julia - you will devour this series. Good, clean, entertaining, well written mysteries.

I have been a fan of Mrs Jeffries and household for years.  I talked my local library into ordering this series.

This isn't the most suspenseful or intricate mystery novel I've read, but it was a fun recreational read and I enjoyed getting to know the characters. I enjoyed it very much and will probably pick up another book in the series when I have a few days open for a fun mystery.

This is the first of a series, but the last for me. The main character is a arrogant, condescending cow who believes she is smarter than, not just her employer whom she alledges to like, but everyone else in the ruddy book! She is completely unsympathetic character. Her employer, a police superintendent at the Yard is written as a fool. Another "police are stupid and incapable of doing anything right" book. The writing is mediocre at best, the story is tripe, the characters are vile. AWFUL, truly awful. Learn from my mistake and avoid this drivel like the plague.
