Описание

When poison fells an arrogant and rude businessman in public, Mrs. Jeffries and Inspector Witherspoon both realize they are looking for a deranged maniac in this new installment of Emily Brightwell's beloved mystery series.

On a cold night in February, the popular Lighterman's ball festivities are cut short when a guest of honor, Stephen Bremmer, goes into spasms and abruptly collapses. Once again Inspector Witherspoon returns to the Wrexley Hotel to investigate a murder.

The victim was considered a boorish snob who felt entitled to anything and anyone he wanted. Yet despite his Oxford education, he was barely literate, lazy, and prone to make stupid mistakes—his last mistake turned out to be crossing a killer.

The owners and management of the Wrexley Hotel clearly don't welcome the return of Inspector Witherspoon but he has his job to do, and Mrs. Jeffries, and the rest of the household must do their best to catch a murderer who shows no signs of slowing down . . .

    Another easy mindless historical mystery featuring Mrs. Jeffries, Inspector Witherspoon's intrepid housekeeper....A much disliked lazy boorish snob happens to fall over dead from arsenic poisoning during an annual employee recognition dinner..Not only was he hated, but he was a schemer & harasser who was seeking revenge for petty past transgressions.

    Mrs. Jeffries Delivers the Goods might be the thirty-seventh book in the Mrs. Jeffries series but it could easily be read as a standalone. In this book, Inspector Witherspoon’s staff are the eyes and ears who help him out behind the scenes by bringing him ever closer to understanding the ghastly murder that had so recently taken place. 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 pick up everything that I needed to understand from their interactions. Although, I will say that their cohesive team like approach to all matters was quite endearing.In this story, the characters themselves were quite charming and the mystery was nicely presented. I liked that the household members would have mini-meetings on a regular basis so that they could discuss what was learned as well as put forth any new ideas that they had considered once they learned new information. This think tank atmosphere would lead to hunting down the answers which brought them ever closer to solving the case all while being as unassuming as possible. Mrs. Jeffries Delivers the Goods was a delightful whodunit and I know that I am looking forward to reading the next mystery that these characters involve themselves in.This review is based on a complimentary book I received from Berkley Books. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.

    Although he doesn’t know it, Inspector Jeffries has had help from his household staff and friends in solving murder cases he is assigned to. When Stephen Bremmer is poisoned at a dinner, they expect this case to be fairly easy, not only do they have a narrow list of suspects, Coachman Wiggins was at the dinner, as was Dr. Bosworth, who has helped them solve mysteries in the past. But the case doesn’t turn out as easy as Mrs. Jeffries thought it would be – Bremmer was not a nice man and plenty of people hated him and wanted him dead. Can the Inspector, Mrs. Jeffries, and his friends catch the killer before someone else is killed?“Mrs. Jeffries Delivers the Goods” is the wonderfully done 37th book in Emily Brightwell’s Inspector and Mrs. Jeffries cozy mystery series. I have read all the books in the series and have been a fan since the beginning of the series and I constantly am amazed at how strong this series continues to be. By now the characters feel like old friends and I love visiting them in each book. All of the characters have grown throughout the course of the books – Phyllis, the newest member of Witherspoon’s household staff feels like she has always been a part of the series and Witherspoon himself has gotten much better at solving murders. The setting of the series in Victorian England and Brightwell does a wonderful job with the setting and time period. The mystery itself is well plotted with plenty of suspects and more than one surprise. I figured out who the killer was around the same time that the Inspector and Mrs. Jeffries did – nice plotting by Brightwell!“Mrs. Jeffries Delivers the Goods” is another great cozy mystery by Emily Brightwell.

    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 cold night in February, we have another murder victim at the Wrexley Hotel. There is no lack of suspects here, but endless fun as all the Upper Edmonton Gardens crew is on the hunt for another murderer. If you enjoy a light Victorian mystery, with lots of tea and crumpets, you'll love this series, and if you're just starting, you will have a really long time to get to know and love these characters as much as I do.
