    Murky goings on in the closed snobbish world of the Mayfair Orchid and Exotic Plant Society A lady who keeps a conservatory and gardeners to win prizes and wants to get on committees and pays exotic plant hunters for specimens is told of a catastrophe A man lies dead in the conservatory a pair of gardening shears the weapon that killed him Oh the social embarrassment I liked the plants the constant allusions to India also class ridden and the governess and ayahs for children which make the book different to many Victorian crime tales I found however that the difficulties of constructing a mystery at this point in time mean the author gives us many conversations in place of action Too many for me Good mark for having some conversations with servants and shopkeepers Mrs Jeffries is a lady who enjoys meddling and detecting like a Miss Marple of her day and she and a Scotland Yard detective Witherspoon work on the murder case I have not read any earlier books about these crime solvers which may be to my disadvantage as they are well set in their ways and a fan might get out of the book than I did I read an e ARC through Fresh Fiction This is an unbiased review

    Inspector Witherspoon Mrs Jefferies and his house are back solving mysteries This one is a diff one to solve as the motive dates back to India Three ladies went out to India to find husbands are back in England as widows They are friendly rivals in an Orchid And Exotic Plant Society They all want to win the BIS at the flower exhibit The murder occurs behind a Conservatory of one of the ladies The murder victim supped rare orchids to the women Tension is supplied by an another lady who was in India at the same time but not really accepted as a member of the group Mrs Jefferies must find an answer before the Inspector arrests the wrong person I was dismayed to find all the editing errors and trusted they will be corrected I am pleased to see a new book in the seriesDisclosure I received a free copy from Berkeley Publishing Group through NetGalley for an honest review of the book I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book The opinions are my own

    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 the returning characters I still like the characters but this stories certainly not my favourite from this series

    Number 34 is here and it is another gem in the seriesMrs Jeffries and the gang return in another adventure to help the Inspector solve a murderHiriam Fil an orchid hunter and supplier is found dead in Helena Rayburn's conservatory Did she kill him? Who would want him dead? Is it one of the other ladies that have a shared past in India?As always the characters are well written and vividly described All the favourites are back With the staff helping the Inspector without his knowldge ofcourse sift through the clues and sometimes point him in the right direction the crime is solvedThis mystery keeps you guessing until all is revealed Many viable suspects and an intriguing plot will keep you entertainedI cannot wait for the next in the series

    I love love love these books I look forward to the next one from the moment I finish the last and this one as always did not disappoint Don't know what else to say I love the way the period is depicted I love the development of all the characters and how they interact with each other This series is a gem from first book to last

  6. Jo Jo says:

    This is the 34th book in the Mrs Jeffries series and I still can't get enough of this little old lady solving murders One thing I appreciate about these books is that every book hits the ground running No waiting around and getting stiff joints here The characters are wonderful and I have loved growing with them I can't wait for #35

    Apparently there are around 30 of these “Mrs Jeffries” mysteries Set in England around the turn of the 20th century the stories revolve around a manor house in London It is not a typical household because the servants have much free time and basic freedoms than would normally be in such a household Mrs Jeffries the housekeeper to Inspector Witherspoon of the police department often has a sherry with the Inspector and listens while he tells her of the case he is working on She and the rest of the staff then unbeknown to the inspector get involved if it is an interesting case Mrs Jeffries is able to feed information to the unsuspecting Inspector to help him solve the cases In this case the story opens in the house of Helena Rayburn an upper class widow who is very involved with exotic plants especially orchids She is hosting a luncheon of several friends all of whom had been in India years ago to seek husbands among the British officers stationed there All 4 of the ladies had married and now years later were widows They had started their own small exclusive orchid society as well as belonging to the Royal Horticultural Society They were getting ready for the yearly HRS competition for honor of having the most perfect plant specimen Towards the end of the luncheon a maid came in and told Mrs Rayburn that she must come immediately into the conservatory When she entered the conservatory she found the body of the gentleman who supplied the ladies with their plants but he had been stabbed to death with gardening shears Could Mrs Jefferies and her staff find out what who killed him and why??? It was an involved story with many characters the reader had to keep up with I’m not sure I’d like to read another of this series

    This is the first book I've read in this series Set during Victorian times in England Mrs Jeffries is the housekeeper for Scotland Yard Inspector Witherspoon The inspector has an amazing record of solving crimes but doesn't realize that his household staff led by Mrs Jeffries work behind the scenes on his cases Mrs Jeffries along with the cook maid footmen and several others including the inspector's lady friend all meet secretly twice a day to discuss progress on each case In this book a purveyor of exotic plants is found dead in the conservatory of a society matron who very much wants to win the local orchid competition Several of her friends who were enjoying luncheon at the house on the day of the murder are also suspects and the case seems to relate to events that occurred many years ago in India The household staff members interview servants shopkeepers neighbors people at pubs and others to crack the case Mrs Jeffries discusses the case at the end of each day with the inspector over a glass of sherry and gently gathers information and makes subtle suggestions for avenues of inuiry to him This was an enjoyable mystery and I liked the upstairsdownstairs angle and how seriously the servants and others took their work of helping Mrs Jeffries and the inspector
