This is my favorite (cozy) mystery series. I have read each book in the series at least 4 times. The books are very well written and an easy read. Ms. Brightwell does an excellent job of describing things without being wordy. When a series goes for a while, usually the books start loosing something, but NOT with the Mrs. Jeffries series. Each book is just as strong as the previous one, and this book is no exception. The characters in the household and their situations progress as the series continues.
The Mrs. Jeffries series takes place in Victorian England. Mrs. Jeffries is the housekeeper to Inspector Witherspoon who works for Scotland Yard. Without his knowledge, the household (and some friends) help gather clues to help the inspector solve homicides. A very enjoyable series. (There are over 30 books in the series.)
