Publisher's Summary

Enjoyable and Predictable

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I listen to these recorded books while in the car or doing something else so yes, the time was well-spent. These Mrs. Jeffries stories are somewhat predictable but this does not diminish their enjoyment for me. I can relax and expect a pleasurable time in Victorian London among familiar and long-time friends with a bit of mystery, humor, and engaging personalities.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I always like a bit of a twist and the Mrs. Jeffries stories never disappoint.

Have you listened to any of Lindy Nettleton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I can't recall listening to any other Lindy Nettleton's narrations other then Mrs. Jeffries. to me she represents the personality of Mrs. Jeffries; her other characters seem to match voices to the picture of them I have in my head.

Was Mrs. Jeffries Dusts for Clues worth the listening time?

This seems to be a duplicate of the first question- yes it was worth the listening time.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the performance, I like the easy feel of Nettleton's voice and the plot moved along at a good pace.

Really Enjoying the whole series<br />

Very entertaining . I love the compassion Mrs. Jefferies has for humanity and how uplifting she is too. Encouraging folks in her own positive way. The character development y the writer and narrator is wonderful. The narrator is so versitile with her voicing work. I feel like I am right there with each character.

Good read

Another solid Mrs Jefferies story. I'm so glad Audible is adding more of these. My library only had 8 and none were the early stories. I like to start a series from the beginning and watch the characters develop and grow. It's fun to watch the relationships change and see how it all began. On to the next one for me!
