Mrs. Jeffries Delivers the Goods Reviews
Review to come.
A nice little mystery, but the sheer number of people and back-stories that get referenced is almost dizzying.
Stephen is a rotten bounder and no one liked him. Everyone seemed to have a motive for murder, which made for a challenging mystery to solve.
Mrs. Jeffries and friends are ready for a new investigation. And! there are indicators in the story that pointed to the killer, but I didn't solve the mystery.

This was the 36th book by Emily Brightwell. Once again Inspector Whitherspoon has a murder to solve and the staff at his home will help him. In this case, a man is poisoned at a dinner event at a hotel but the medical doctor doesn't believe he had enough poison in his glass to kill him.
This series is terrific. The mysteries are interesting. The fact that the household helps their boss (the detective) solve the mysteries and has now expanded to friends is fun. This one, I feel, had even more twists than usual. The younger characters continue to develop.

I could certainly tell that was plenty of history between the household staff at the Witherspoon residence but the story flowed easily enough and I was able to pi ...more
I really enjoy reading the Mrs. Jeffries series, and after 36 books (this being the 37 in the series), I've come to love the staff at Upper Edmonton Gardens. But after so many books, it must be hard for Ms. Brightwell to come up with new storylines. I did enjoy this book. It was a nice light read, and it's always good when an odious man is the victim, but I have to admit, I had figured out the murderer very early into the story, so I read just to see how it would play out. In this book, on a col ...more
