I have enjoyed this entire series. Wonderful, memorial household characters!

I truly do enjoy this historical cozy series. I love the people that live at Upper Edmonton Gardens, and that's what makes the stories so much fun. In this book Betsy and her Smythe are married and living next door, not in the house so that's a big change for Betsy and for the rest of the staff, but that does not stop them from getting involved in the inspector's cases. A woman is found shot to death on her grounds. The shooting took place in the morning but there was a terrible rainstorm occurring and no one could figure out why Olive Kettering was in her garden with no coat and house shoes on her feet. Miss Kettering had a lot of people who wanted her dead and its up to the brilliant Mrs. Jeffries to figure out who and why. I did figure out who the killer was about halfway through but did not take away from enjoyment at all because I love these characters so much.

Comforting, like a good cup of tea, this series was something I was missing and didn’t even know it. In less than 48 hours I consumed the whole book and found myself checking Emily’s website for the complete list of books in the series just in case I missed another. If you are a fan of Victorian historical cozy mysteries, do yourself and check out this series. There is something about it that is just simple magic. How to try to wait (not so patiently) for the next installment to come out in 2019!

In Victorian London, wealthy spinster Olive Kettering hears footsteps and tries to flee to safety, but knows someone is following her. She gets out of her mansion and runs to a person she is happy to see only that individual shoots her in the head. Inspector Witherspoon, who has a 100% homicide clearance rate thanks to his servants secretly assisting him, leads the inquiry. He learns no one liked Olive, not her peers or servants whom she treated like vermin. She was also estranged from her blood relatives, Dorien who refused to get married and Patricia of whom Olive disapproved of the man she married. Olive was involved with the Society of the Humble Servant led by Reverend Samuel Richards. The victim rejected the concept he was a con artist as she believed in a vengeful god like he preaches. All the suspects offer viable alibis, but some lied. Using the information Witherspoon unknowingly gives her, the housekeeper Mrs. Jeffries and her team is determined to find the killer for their boss, not aware of the danger this endeavor provides. Every Mrs. Jefferies historical cozy is a special unique treat as the recurring characters change and grow, and this time a new member to the household joins the crew and Betsy provides a surprising revelation. The whodunit is straightforward fun with Mrs. Jefferies and the rest of the servants finding clues and Mrs. Jeffries feeding them to her employer with him remaining clueless to what she is doing. The sleuthing cast makes for a wonderful Victorian mystery. Harriet Klausner
