This series is a long loved one for me. 'Mrs. Jeffries Turns the Tide' was one, a page-turner, but two, Mrs. Jeffries did turn the tide

Only 11 left in stock (more on the way). This series is a long loved one for me. Jeffries did turn the tide. The tide? Yes, the tide and to tell you would spoil the main thought of the novel, so I will restrain myself.

The setting for these books is Victorian England

Penguin Publishing Group. The setting for these books is Victorian England. I just completed watching the entire Upstairs Downstairs original series as it was appearing weekly on a televison station, and totally loved it all over again. And when I read this book I couldn't help comparing the characters from the tv series to the characters in this book.

If you like Downton Abbey, you'll love Mrs. Jeffries!IN THE WEEDS

Beautiful and new in town, Ellen Langston-Jones doesn’t have any enemies. So, when she’s found dead in the communal gardens, Inspector Witherspoon quickly narrows the field of suspects down to one: Lucius Montague, who was seen threatening Mrs. Langston-Jones shortly before her death.

The Inspector and all of London are positive that he’s the killer, but Mrs. Jeffries has doubts. Her biggest problem is that Lucius Montague is a very disagreeable character and no one—including Inspector Witherspoon’s staff—is inclined to save his skin. Now, she must turn the tide of the investigation...or watch an innocent man take the fall for the real killer.

A Mrs. Jeffries Mystery

 

She keeps house for Inspector Witherspoon...and keeps him on his toes. Everyone’s awed by his Scotland Yard successes—but they don’t know about his secret weapon. No matter how messy the murder or how dirty the deed, Mrs. Jeffries’ polished detection skills are up to the task...proving that behind every great man there’s a woman—and that a crimesolver’s work is never done.

Hawk Flying
Mrs. Jeffries, a policeman's widow, is housekeeper for Inspecker Witherspoon, a London policeman who might be described as clueless as to how he always catches the murderer. It never occurs to him that Mrs. Jeffries subtly passes along information she and the other domestic help gleans during their own investigation. He just enjoys his evening sherry with Mrs. Jeffries and is appreciative of her interest in his murder investigations. He has no clue of how his housekeeper is gently directing those investigation. He doesn't realize that Mrs. Jeffries, the cook, Mrs. Goodge, Wiggins, a sort of footman, Phyliis the maid, Smythe, a secret millionaire who acts as a coachman, and his wife, Betsy, an elderly American heiress and her butler, and Witherspoon's lady-love, Ruth, widow of a peer, are his secret detective force.

The reason for Mrs. Jeffries and her circle of domestic friends became involved in Inspector Witherspoon's cases is because they both respect and like the feckless policeman. Why? Because he both likes and respects them, which is not often the case in late Victorian England, and that is the social undertone in this cozy series. When a servant might be dismissed for breaking a dish or spilling wine on a guest, it would never occur to Inspector Witherspoon to be so callous, nor to refuse to give references or provide pensions for his servants. Unlike most of the wealthy suspects in his various murder cases. This social undertone that draws a vivid portrait of the precarious lives of London's underclass never overwhelms the mystery, but it is a subtext nonetheless, and one that motivates the actions of Mrs. Jeffries and her cohorts. The group also have come to enjoy their unofficial and mostly unknown investigations into murder.

In MRS. JEFFRIES TURNS THE TIDE, a young French tutor is shot on the doorstep of her employer's home for no apparent reason. The employer, Sir Donovan, is distraught at the murder and takes her young son into his home as he has no relative except a disreputable uncle. Lucius Montague, a friend of Sir Donovan and his widowed niece and his brother, is discovered to be the subject of a lawsuit by the French tutor for non-payment of a debt. The tutor's deceased husband was an artist, one who's paintings are now worth a fortune, and Montague refuses to pay for one he bought.

But he is not the only suspect. Sir Donovan's niece, Mrs. Barclay, an unpleasant piece of work who hated the tutor, has a motive of her own. Lucius Montague, Mrs. Barclay, the nefarious uncle, and Sir Donovan's brother are all characters the reader loves to hate. The question for Mrs. Jeffries and the Inspector is which among the suspects is the murderer, or is it any of them?

Well written and well plotted, with delightful characters as well as the nasty ones, MRS. JEFFRIES TURNS THE TIDE is not for everyone, nor or any of the books in the series. If your taste runs to more noir crime fiction or more realistic thrillers, this book is not for you. If you enjoy somewhat eccentric characters in a warm, occasionally humorous setting combined with a good mystery, and accept that a cozy is not realism as we experience it in the real world, then you will love this book. Let your hair down, suspend disbelief, and enjoy.
Aria
Inspector Gerald Witherspoon has a reputation for solving tough murder cases but his latest case looks very easy. Ellen Langston-Jones has been murdered and all the evidence points to Lucius Montague as the killer since he was heard threatening her shortly before his death. However, Witherspoon's household staff and friends (who help him investigate cases even though he doesn't know it) want to make sure he has the right killer and starts digging into the case. Could Montague be innocent and if so will Witherspoon's staff and friends be able to point him toward the real killer?

"Mrs. Jeffries Turns the Tide" is the delightful thirty-first book in Emily Brightwell's The Inspector and Mrs. Jeffries cozy mystery series. At this point it would be easy for the series to become formulaic with the servants and friends asking questions behind Witherspoon's back to help him solve yet another murder, but Brightwell continues to make the series feel fresh with each new book. As always the characters are delightful and it's nice to see Betsy is back to doing a little investigating. I love the way Brightwell brings back characters from other books in the series - here it is Fiona Sutcliffe. This move also helps to deepen the character of the series regulars, in this case it is Mrs. Jeffries. Brightwell also manages to add a fresh twist in each book, in this book the twist is that everyone seems to think that Lucius Montague is guilty and Brightwell manages to keep the reader guessing until the end whether or not he is guilty or innocent. The mystery is well plotted with plenty of twists and turns and while I did figure out one plot point I was still caught off guard by some twists in that particular plot line. The beauty of having both the Inspector and his staff and friends question witnesses is that the reader gets to solve the mystery alongside the characters. I kind of figured out who the killer was but was only half right. Since this is a cozy mystery it is not violent but there is a real sense of danger in the book especially at the beginning and end.

"Mrs. Jeffries Turns the Tide" is another delightful cozy mystery by Emily Brightwell and when I finished reading it I was sorry to see my visit with Witherspoon and friends end and look forward to visiting them again.
Burisi
Emily Brightwell is an author who has earned a place on my "pre-order" list. I absolutely love the Mrs. Jeffries series. "Mrs. Jeffries Turns the Tide" is a brand new story and it's just as delightful as I had hoped it would be. As usual, Scotland Yard Inspector Gerald Witherspoon's housekeeper Mrs. Jeffries, along with the rest of the household and a select group of friends, help him solve the latest murder case without his knowledge. This time, a beautiful young French tutor is murdered and a very unpleasant upper class man is the prime suspect. Mrs. Jeffries and the others have to remind themselves that even someone who is as unlikeable as Lucius Montague deserves justice, so they race against the clock, and the interference of their nemesis Inspector Nivens, to find out the truth behind young Mrs. Langston-Jones's murder.

The Victorian setting is as charming as ever in this installment and all of the members of the extended household play a part in solving the crime. Phyllis feels more like one of the "family" as she gets to know everyone better and Betsy is also able to pitch in and do her part in solving the crime. Everyone works together to make sure justice is done and to help protect the job of their beloved Inspector. I love this series for the likeable characters, but the story is also interesting and kept me guessing until the end as to who the real murderer was. It was a sad story since the victim was such a young woman that seemed to have no enemies. This book is another delightful installment in a series that somehow seems to keep getting better and better. I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who love a clean cozy mystery with great characters and interesting plots.
