Mrs. Jeffries and the Merry Gentlemen

A Victorian Mystery

I just finished reading Mrs. Jeffries and the Merry Gentlemen, which is part of the book series called A Victorian Mystery by Emily Brightwell. I was given this book to create a review for Night Owl Reviews and in my personal opinion; I found this story to be very enjoyable. On a scale out of five, I give it a four.

Mrs. Jeffries is more than just a housekeeper and once again she is ready, willing, and able to try to solve this mystery with the help of Inspector Witherspoon. Inspector Witherspoon is getting ready to celebrate the holidays when a rich stockbroker is murdered right before Christmas. His housekeeper, Mrs. Jeffries, never looks the other way and leads them all to see that justice is found for the dead man.
