 "Mrs Jeffries and the Midwinter Murders"

Midwinter

Mrs. Jeffries and Inspector Witherspoon should be checking off their Christmas present list but instead they're listing murder suspects in this latest entry of the beloved Victorian Mystery series.

Harriet Andover had no intention of dying young like her silly siblings had. She intended to outlive them and outdo them as she always had. But Harriet discovers that the best intentions can lead to murder when she is strangled inside her mansion with a house full of holiday guests.

As much as Inspector Witherspoon enjoys his job delivering justice, the last thing he wanted was a complicated murder case just a week before Christmas. He soon discovers that Harriet's own husband and grown stepchildren are not overcome with grief and neither are most of her friends. And to put the icing on the Christmas cookies, the room where Harriet's body was found was locked from the inside and she had the only key in her pocket.

Mrs. Jeffries and the household have no intention of letting their inspector down and learn that Harriet's sister may have died from foul play as well. As the clues mount, this dedicated band of merry sleuths will not rest until they've delivered a stocking full of coal to a crafty killer.

 

 

*************************

"The Mrs. Jeffries stories are written in the style and spirit of the Victorian cozy mysteries, and Agatha Christie would be proud. Author Emily Brightwell provides the reader with a perfect balance of old-time gentility and ruthless, cold-blooded murder, not to mention ample mystery and intrigue in the tradition of the best whodunits. Brightwell’s writing style is fluid and fun to read. Her descriptions of the Victorian London locations carry the ring of truth, and add greatly to the allure of the story."
