  3. I found this book a bit confusing There were far too many suspects for the murder of a local rare plant seller The book seemed to descend into all out cat fights among four very unlikeable women many times during the course of the story Mrs Jeffries and her crew manage to uncover all the old secrets and dirty dealings, but I have to admit that all the women involved were so unlikeable that I didn t care in the end who actually did the deed I usually love these cozy Victorian mysteries and I like [...]

  8. I knew whodunit early on in this installment of the Mrs Jeffries Victorian cozy mysteries Figuring how the why took a little longer.These books follow a very specific formula, and it works because I enjoy the interactions of the Inspector, his household staff and their friends as they investigate murders among, mostly, rich London residents.A purveyor of exotic flowers is discovered murdered in a rich woman s conservatory as she and three guests enjoy luncheon As the evidence mounts against one [...]

  16. I received this as an ARC from the publisher but the review is my own.Among the elite of London are those who dabble in the very expensive art of orchids These blooms are brought from the most exotic parts of the world to glass conservatories of the wealthy, so a dead body found during a ladies luncheon in the greenhouse is unwelcome for many reasons When the murder seems to suggest that the lady of the house is being framed purposefully, Inspector Witherspoon senses that there is to this than [...]


  17. I love mysteries I love Downton Abby I didn t love this book The mystery was creative and interesting but the narrative had zero action, with the exception of the first chapter The entire book was composed of scenes where the characters sit around a kitchen table and summarize what they ve learned It was like watching an episode of Murder, She Wrote where Jessica Fletcher just summarized the investigation for the viewer from her armchair It was boring There were way, way too many characters to b [...]

  19. In any long running series, there are going to be books that really grab you and others that just don t work for you for whatever reason Mrs Jeffries Wins the Prize was one of the books in this long very long running series that just hit the spot with me The book opens with some of the members of the Orchid and Exotic Plant Society gathering for lunch at the home of Mrs Rayburn While enjoying their coffee and gossiping about the member who has already left, a servant who is in much distress come [...]

  21. Mrs Jeffries Wins the Prize is a historical mystery set in England in the late 1800 s It s the thirty fourth in a series You don t need to read the previous books to understand this one, and this book didn t spoil the whodunit of the previous books.It s a clue based puzzle mystery I was certain of whodunit and why by about halfway through However, there was enough evidence pointing in other directions that I wasn t 100% certain that my whodunit would be the actual solution The story wasn t heavi [...]

[...]


  24. The cover compares it to Downton Abbey, but to me it s like Murder, She Wrote with a Victorian twist The woman is a housekeeper not a writer, but definitely a great female sleuth Extremely well written, great storyline just a really nice mystery novel and small enough to tuck into your bag on a trip And, to my surprise and pleasure, there are a whole slew of Mrs Jeffries mysteries published.This was a giveaway.


  25. There were so many injustices in London during these times that it s heartwarming to read a book although fiction where a household staff is treated respectfully This same staff of servants are helpers to solve murder mysteries that their employer, the inspector, has trouble finding the culprit.


  26. The latest in one of my favorite series this one finds Mrs Jeffries and crew aiding the Inspector in solving the murder of a rare flower dealer The series continue to grow the characters and maintain a proper mystery plot While it can be a bit repetitive I do love spending time with these characters.


  27. This is the first of this series that I have read I quite enjoyed it It was a wonderful Victorian mystery and anyone that loves that type of cozy will thoroughly enjoy this one I was given a this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
