I enjoyed this book very much because it was interesting enough to hold my attention and interest but relaxing enough to look forward to reading before bed time. The characters are real personalities and each an individual and the plot was pleasantly intriging. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.

I've read most of the series and enjoy every one of these stories. Sometimes my guess is right and sometimes I've been lead off in the wrong direction. Whichever the case may be, it is fun to try to figure it out; but I'm not certain til the end of the book. I love the characters and the plots and hope the author will write more of this series. They are so enjoyable. My only criticism is with the publisher, not the author. These books are really poorly proofread. It is not quite bad enough to ruin the read; but can be irritating when reading a sentence with a word missing or a wrong word in place of the intended word. Fortunately, it has never been hard to figure out how the sentence was meant to read. Still, I would recommend any book in the series for those who like a good old fashioned mystery.

The household of Inspector Gerald Witherspoon is usually a merry one with the servants not only liking each other but all working together to help their employer (without his knowledge) solve homicide cases. As a result of their works, he has a 100 percent solved homicide rate and is looked upon as the best detective on the Metropolitan police force. This year is very different as everyone is worried about the maid Betsy who has lost so much weight since her beloved and fellow servant in the Witherspoon household cancelled the holidays to help a friend in Australia.-------------- When he returns she barely speaks to him and on the same night of his return Witherspoon is given a homicide case after not having one for the last six months. Stephen Whitfield, a man in polite society, was hosting a dinner party when after drinking Bordeaux that one of the guests gave him as a gift keels over and dies. A doctor friend of Mrs. Jeffries was called to the scene, and he realized right away the victim was poisoned. Foxglove was found in the liquor and all the guests had access to it. Working separately, Mrs. Jeffries and Inspector Witherspoon find they haven¿t a clue who killed Whitfield because none of the people at the party had a motive.---------------- Every Mrs. Jeffries mystery is an entertaining, well plotted police procedural filled with continuing characters that feel like old and familiar friends. Emily Bright¿s Victorian whodunits are like potato chips, they are so delicious you can¿t stop with just one. Taking place in Victorian England, readers get a glimpse of bygone era as seen through the eyes of the servant class.------ Harriet Klausner

Good to keep up with the going ones of the household and how they help the Inspector without him knowing. Always fun to see who done it in the end!
