This British cozy mystery series has a Victorian era setting. It features Inspector Witherspoon, his household help and their neighbors. They are a delightfully well written who-done-it, easy to read, and real page turners! Each book brings us more attached to the characters. They are best read in order. In this book; Inspector Witherspoon is so wrapped up in Lady Cannonberry's travel, that he doesn't chat about his most recent investigation, thus frustrating the household. I love that the series is not a "formula", and does not repeat a pattern. Content: 167 pages, no sex, no swearing, no violence

A true British cozy. Love Mrs Jeffries and all the household characters. Can't wait to read another one.

This series centers around the household of Gerald Witherspoon, an extremely kind, but not terribly bright individual who has a great reputation for his amazing (if not downright unlikely) success at solving murders. Inspector Witherspoon doesn't realize, but his good deeds and kindly nature have created great loyalty on the part of his household staff. Led by the housekeeper, Mrs. Jeffries, a policeman's widow, they successfully (and competitively) investigate every case, and tactfully pass the information along to Witherspoon. A few friends and neighbors eventually join in to help.I like having a largish band of appealing, repeating characters who are distinct from one another and continue to develop throughout the series. The stories are somewhat formulaic, which the reader may like or dislike. Personally, I wish that the continuing subplots would develop and change a little faster. The books are best read in order, although it isn't entirelly crucial. With such a long series, it is often hard to get all the books.A friend recommended this series to me when I was extremely depressed, and it was perfect!
