Another look at the earliest Mrs. Jeffries mysteries. In MRS. JEFFRIES TAKES STOCK, who killed Jake Randell? His business partners, or someone else? Meanwhile, Mrs. Jeffries has to keep an eye on Inspector Witherspoon's economy budget, and keep the household running. In MRS JEFFRIES ON THE BALL, Inspector Witherspoon is at a Jubilee Ball when a body crashes the party. With numerous suspects, and an original twist, Mrs Jeffries helps solve the crime. In MRS JEFFRIES ON THE TRAIL, the question is who would kill Annie Shields, a poor flower seller. There are many suspects, including a poetry quoting lawyer. Plus, Mrs. Jeffries has to solve what is going on between fellow servants, Betsy and Smythe.
I, too, did not come to Mrs.Jeffries until mid-series and am so happy that the anthologies are now available. I enjoy all the characters and change constantly as to who is my favorite and am enoying the development of the relationship between Betsey and Smythe in these early stories.
My wife and I started reading the series only after the fifteenth or so book had been published. About this same time, we came across the first three books in the anthology, Mrs. Jeffries Learns the Trade. We began looking for other books in the series, but were only able to find those that were published after Mrs. Jeffries Pleads Her Case until recently we found a used Mrs. Jeffries Pinches the Post. Therefore, we were happy to receive this second anthology of books four, five, and six, which fill in some of the missing pieces mentioned in later books. The characters were described nicely in the first anthology, but seem to become more fully developed into what we have found in all the later books. In short, we were glad to get this and look forward to another anthology should it be forthcoming.
