    1. Inspector Witherspoon is Scotland Yard's top detective when it comes to solving messy or strange murders. No one really understands how the quiet, unassuming man of inherited wealth went from records file clerk to the leading murder detective with no unsolved crimes in his career. They don't realize that unbeknownst to him, that he has an entire crew working behind the scenes to help him find the answers! Meet Mrs. Jeffries, the inspector's housekeeper and the brains behind his astounding succes [...]

    2. Hannah Cameron was definitely unpopular with everyone n her household and all her relatives as well so there are plenty of suspects when she is stabbed in the back in what appears to be a burglary gone wrong. As it appears to be a burglary the unpleasant Inspector Nivens is asked to investigate. Smarting under their inability to find Jack the Ripper Scotland Yard can't afford any unsolved murders and classifying this as a burglary gone wrong just might take the heat off them.Inspector Witherspoo [...]

    3. I liked the characters in this nook and the plot was good, but for some reason I had trouble getting into it. Maybe it's all the sick family and the running to get chores done and look after them that has made me too tired to enjoy this. (Almost everyone has the flu.)

    4. I am a real fan of Mrs. Jeffries. I rarely figure out the mystery before Mrs. Jeffries does. That means I stay engaged all the way through. It’s nice to have clean mysteries to read.

    5. The annoying Inspector Nivens throws a wrench in the works and inheritances drive murder in this installment of the ever-entertaining Mrs. Jeffries Victorian mystery series.

    6. I very much enjoyed this instalment of Brightwell's Mrs Jeffries murder mysteries. Set in Victorian London, Brightwell's novel tells the tale of what looks at first glance to be a burglary gone wrong in the Cameron household. The lady of the house, Hannah Cameron, has been stabbed in her own home in the middle of the night. A rather unpleasant woman and super-strict employer, Hannah Cameron was disliked by many people, including all her servants, her half-brother and her cousin. Plenty of suspec [...]

    7. 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 more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.4 stars I really [...]

    8. Another great read from Emily Brightwell! These books are so hard to put down I usually read all or almost all of them in one sitting. Inspector Nivens plays a fairly large role in this one and I have to admit that I couldn't help but smile every time someone made a dig at him. That made this book all the more enjoyable for me because Nivens is such an epic tool. Well-written and entertaining as always.

    9. This is a light-hearted mystery where a housekeeper helps the police inspector for whom she works solve a crime. Of course, he never realizes just how helpful she was and she is content to let him think he has worked things out on his own.

    10. An unpleasant woman is stabbed, but is it murder or a burglary gone wrong? Inspector Niven gets in the way as Mrs. Jeffries and the rest of the household staff helps their employer catch a murderer. Along the way, several heroes show their true colors. Just a delight.

    11. A nasty woman is killed was it a burglary gone wrong or a deliberate act?This was a satisfying Victorian murder mystery full of well developed / decent characters.If you enjoy 'gentle crime thriller' this is worth a look.

    12. The inspector is getting smarter. He knows that this is a murder and he has his superiors agree with him. Mrs Jeffries and company are hard pressed to help and keep out of the way as the murderer tries to cover up the crime! Fun, fun and more fun. I do love these stories.

    13. Getting close to finishing the next few books I have in this series. Going to have to order the next few in the series. Having such fun reading them. The characters seem like old friends at this point.

    14. I love Mrs. Jeffries and the whole gang at Inspector Witherspoon's. This was another successful story.

    15. I just casually picked this up, read the first few pages, and then had to finish it! I got hooked, the characters are a lot of fun and the mystery was good. It is all my mother's fault!

    16. The Mrs. Jeffries series is a nice, light take on the Victorian era. Nice when you don't want anything too demanding.

    17. My Rating System:* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.

    18. This one was a lot of fun with the household having to work around Inspector Nivens. Love it when they get the better of him. Nice twist on the murder plot too. Laughed out loud several times.
