Publisher's Summary

She keeps house for Inspector Witherspoon...and keeps him on his toes. Everyone's awed by his Scotland Yard successes - but they don't know about his secret weapon. No matter how messy the murder or how dirty the deed, Mrs. Jeffries's polished detection skills are up to the task...proving that behind every great man there's a woman - and that a crime-solver's work is never done. 

A Bone to Pick 

Eccentric Annabeth Gentry pretty much keeps to herself. Besides her recent inheritance - and the attention her bloodhound gets for digging up the body of a murdered thief - her life is in fact, rather dull. So why does she think that someone is trying to kill her? That's what Mrs. Jeffries and her staff has to find out. What they discover is a dead body next door, and three attempts on Annabeth's life. It sounds like there's a jealous dog in their midst. Mrs. Jeffries will have to sniff out some clues before the plot thickens....

Good stories, squeaky narration

I always enjoy Emily Brightwell's books. Mrs. Jeffiries and her household are great fun. But Jennifer Dixon's squeaky voices for a few of the characters makes me want to stop listening and read these books instead. She makes a couple of them sound like Cinderella's mice. And since one of those is a 20-some year old footman, it's pretty aggravating.

Bring Lindy Back

Not a fan of the narrator. Timing off and staggered. I had a hard time getting over the narrator to get into the book.

Why did they change the narrator halfway through the series??

I love this series of books, but this new narrator they switched to is terrible! I think she’s American but trying to sound British, and not doing a very good job of it. All the characters sound the same, (even the one that IS American), and when she’s not trying to do a character, her voice is so monotonous it’s annoying. Go back to the original narrator! It took a while to get used to her, but she was a lot better than this awful train wreck.
