The holidays are upon the residents of Victorian London, which means that the wedding date of Coachman Smythe and Betsy the Cook is getting close. The pair live in the home of Inspector Witherspoon of the Metropolitan Police Department where they work and assist along with the rest of the staff their employer solve crime cases. Witherspoon is ignorant that his household employees led by Mrs. Jeffries are the reason his detecting record is at 100% solved as they serendipitously work cases by finding the clues but allow their beloved Inspector to get the credit. The staff prays no murder cases until after the wedding, but their prayers go unanswered when a woman is knifed to death in front of the Evans' home where an engagement party is going on. The daughter of the house Rosemary Evans identifies the victim as her old governess, but neither she nor anyone else knows why she was there. Mrs. Jeffries and the crew understand that they need to expedite this case so it does not interfere with the wedding since Witherspoon is giving the bride away. The police and the staff separately investigate the homicide and believe they know who the killer is but lack proof. When information comes to light in spite of a lack of cooperation, the housekeeper and her amateur sleuths know they must act quickly to prevent a second murder from occurring even as a second wedding will occur. It is fun watching Betsy and Smythe work on the crime, prepare for their wedding, and host her sister and brother-in-law as they do an incredible balancing act. Readers, Mrs. J, and the Inspector will be blindsided by who the killer is in this delightful cerebral historical cozy. As always with this terrific series, Emily Brightwell provides her fans with a bright well-written Victorian. Harriet Klausner

I had to make an emergency trip to the library as I could not read this book. I love M.C. Beaton and was hoping it would be somewhat similar. Nothing like it. A very tedious read. Just my opinion of course.

This was my very first book that I read on my new Kindle, so that made it exciting on its own, but the book was very good. I love this Victorian cozy series, and I particularly loved this book. It is set around Christmas and close to Smythe and Betsy's wedding. So even though there is a murder and Inspector Witherspoon is on the case, the staff at Edmonton Gardens find they have to divide their time between preparations for the wedding and investigating a murder. The murder itself is a little tricky this time and not easily figured out. In fact, Mrs. Jeffries quite despairs that she will ever solve the case, let alone before the wedding. But never fear, she does at the last moment and all ends happily. Thank goodness; because I can't wait to read the next book in this heartwarming series. And in that book Smythe and Betsy will be married so that will definitely change the dynamics.

Love the Mrs. Jeffries series - you really need to pay attention to all the information that is given to you. The characters are likeable and entertaining.If you love mysteries start reading this series - read the 1st one The Inspector and Mrs. Jeffries and then continue with the series.

Emily Brightwell keeps you on your toes trying to figure out which character is the real murderer.
