    3. True to its formula But, i had a lot of trouble getting through it Frankly, i just found it tedious and therefore did not even attempt to guess who the murderer could be I like the series but thi sone was a drag.



    4. Edith Durant was the murderess who got away She escaped before Inspector Witherspoon and Constable Barnes could arrest her Now, she s dead, and our crew of police, household staff and friends is looking for answers.This is a fairly typical book in the Mrs Jeffries series, although we have a mishmash of information that takes a while to wade through.Lucy s Peacemaker comes in handy at a crucial moment.

    8. The latest in this long running Victorian mystery series by Emily Brightwell is excellent As always, Mrs Jeffries and the other members of Inspector Witherspoon s household help investigate the murder case he has been assigned, all without his knowledge If you ve never read a Mrs Jeffries novel, that may sound silly, but it s actually charming and seems believable the way this premise is handled by Brightwell New readers can definitely pick up this book and quickly sort out all of the characters [...]


    9. Emily Brightwell s Inspector Witherspoon gained both experience and confidence, but this case brings back many of his insecurities A body found inside Highgate Cemetery turned out to be Edith Durant, the one suspect that got away from him A nasty piece of work, Edith killed her twin sister Hilda for her money then took her identity Her partner in crime, Hilda s husband, Christopher, killed for her, but when the police closed in, she fled without him Now, not only does Mrs Jeffries need to assist [...]


    10. Fun series, but it helps to refresh your memory on the cast of the corresponding Jane Austin book first.Since I don t normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here s the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won t be reading any from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won t go out of my way to read [...]

    12. I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery and look forward to reading Mrs Jeffries adventures This murder of Mrs Robinson takes place in Highgate Cemetery in North London Inspector Witherspoon is called into investigate this murder and upon reviewing the corpse he realizes he knows the victim under another name and she is someone who has outfoxed him in the past If you have never read a Mrs Jeffries mystery you will soon meet Mrs Jeffries, who is Inspector Witherspoon s housekeeper and a master sleuth [...]


    13. This is the first of the Mrs Jeffries books I ve read, so I rather felt like I was behind Didn t impact the story immensely, in my opinion, but it could have I felt like I was missing something in the relationships between all the pseudo detectives and their motives behind wanting to help the Inspector If I read another of the series, I would have to read 1 first Still, I d say this is a series that could be wonderful.


    14. Alice Robinson is a widow who keeps a boarding house When she s murdered, Inspector Witherspoon is shocked to find that she s really an infamous criminal whose escape was his greatest failure Even his staff who, unbeknownst to him, help him solve his mysteries are reluctant to find and punish the murderer of such an evil person Maybe that s why their early efforts are unsuccessful But they and Mrs Jeffries, the housekeeper and guiding genius of the group, come through in the end.


    15. Ending of Case Not FinishedInspector Witherspoon is called to Highgate cemetery on a case Once views the victim he realized why he was called Mrs Jefferies and friends while delighted to have a murder case to solve are not sure they want to work this case There are a number of twists and turns and the ending surprise me This is one of the best books in the series


    16. Inspector Witherspoon is called to Highgate cemetery on a case Once views the victim he realized why he was called Mrs Jeffries and friends while delighted to have a murder case to solve are not sure they want to work this case There are a number of twists and turns and the ending surprise me This is one of the best books in the series


    17. Perhaps it was inevitable that 33 in the series would be too far into its own world to be interesting to a newcomer As always, I am put off with careless anachronism in speech, and an unwieldy cast of chearacters with back stories to endure Just not my cup of tea.


    18. Well, reading the approximately 30th book in a series is not the best introduction Lots of characters with back stories to remember I enjoyed the book and the characters, but would prefer to start with book 1 and see if I really would enjoy the entire series.


    19. I enjoyed the characters, and their world and hope I get the chance to read the story again and or to read within the series.My Rating System couldn t finish, wouldn t recommend, would recommend, would read again, have read again.


    20. Or maybe not I have been a huge Mrs Jeffries fan for years, and Brightwell never disappoints Actually, this time I did figure it out and why But reading how Mrs Jeffries got there is always enjoyable Readers won t be disappointed.


    21. Mrs Jeffries and the crew are back again to help Inspector Witherspoon This time the murder victim is a murderer who got away from one of the previous books Another enjoyable book in the series, full of clues and quality time with each character.


    22. Excellent story as usual from Brightwell This one was particularly good because there was an added element to the case and made the team rethink who is considered worth finding justice for.



    23. Great plot, had a hard time figuring this one out I have read all of the Mrs Jeffries series and each one gets a little bit better, if that is possible




    24. great readThis one had me stumped but I figured it out about the same time as Mrs Jefferies Well done Mrs Brightwell
