excellent historical cozy June 1 2010
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Victorian London, wealthy spinster Olive Kettering hears footsteps and tries to flee to safety, but knows someone is following her. She gets out of her mansion and runs to a person she is happy to see only that individual shoots her in the head. Inspector Witherspoon, who has a 100% homicide clearance rate thanks to his servants secretly assisting him, leads the inquiry.

He learns no one liked Olive, not her peers or servants whom she treated like vermin. She was also estranged from her blood relatives, Dorien who refused to get married and Patricia of whom Olive disapproved of the man she married. Olive was involved with the Society of the Humble Servant led by Reverend Samuel Richards. The victim rejected the concept he was a con artist as she believed in a vengeful god like he preaches. All the suspects offer viable alibis, but some lied. Using the information Witherspoon unknowingly gives her, the housekeeper Mrs. Jeffries and her team is determined to find the killer for their boss, not aware of the danger this endeavor provides.

Every Mrs. Jefferies historical cozy is a special unique treat as the recurring characters change and grow, and this time a new member to the household joins the crew and Betsy provides a surprising revelation. The whodunit is straightforward fun with Mrs. Jefferies and the rest of the servants finding clues and Mrs. Jeffries feeding them to her employer with him remaining clueless to what she is doing. The sleuthing cast makes for a wonderful Victorian mystery.

Another great Mrs. Jeffries Mystery June 15 2010
By drebbles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Olive Kettering was not a very nice person and had very few friends, so no one is particularly surprised when she is murdered during a nasty storm. It is up to Inspector Gerald Witherspoon and Constable Barnes to find her killer and they have plenty of suspects to deal with. But Witherspoon has a lot of help with this case, even if he doesn't know it - his household staff, led by housekeeper Mrs. Jeffries, are working behind the scenes to make sure he catches the killer.

"Mrs. Jeffries Speaks Her Mind" is the 27th book in Emily Brightwell's engaging mystery series set in Victorian England, a series that never disappoints. Despite there being so many books in the series it never gets stale, with the characters growing stronger in each book. In this particular book it is maid Betsy who takes center stage as she is happily married to Smythe but adjusting to not living with the rest of the servants and afraid she will be replaced by newcomer Phyllis. This storyline is an example of what makes this series so strong - the characters. They think of each other as family (which is especially evident in this book. I had wondered how Brightwell would handle the series now that Betsy and Smythe are married and she does an excellent job.

As for the mystery elements, like all the other books in the series they are well done and the mystery is well plotted with plenty of suspects and some good motives. The fun in this series is watching both Witherspoon and his staff tried to solve the case and finding clues, as they do, and trying to figure out the solution before Mrs. Jeffries does. Astute readers will pick up some clues that Brightwell scatters throughout the book but it may still come as a bit of a surprise when the killer is revealed. The ending is action packed and danger filled and will keep readers at the edge of their seats for a few pages.

"Mrs. Jeffries Speaks Her Mind" is another great cozy mystery by Emily Brightwell.

Mrs. Jeffries Speaks Her Mind July 3 2010
By Jennifer A McMahon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the Mrs. Jeffries and the Inspector series. This one was as excellent as all the others. I wish I could get the ones from 1994-2000. I didn't discover this series until after those were out of print. While reading, I become part of the household family.

Mrs. Jeffries Speaks Her Mind March 10 2013
By M. Wentworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This story was very scary in a way because you know that whoever killed Olive she knew very well. That's enough to make anyone wonder about those we think we know. As usual there are alot of people in the plot and it unfolds slowly, it's great.

feel like family Feb. 3 2013
By Lily - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Have read all Mrs Jeffries available on kindle and enjoyed all of them thoroughly.
This one was good because the inspector did not want to endanger his employees because of his job.
