Review: Mrs. Jeffries Stalks the Hunter by Emily Brightwell

  • Series: Mrs. Jeffries
  • Mass Market Paperback: 224 pages
  • Publisher: Berkley; First Edition edition (October 5, 2004)
  • ISBN-10: 0425198855
  • ISBN-13: 978-0425198858

  • A nobleman is murdered on his way home from a party announcing his engagement to a very reluctant bride. The Inspector gets the case and Mrs. Jeffries and the rest of the staff secretly investigate as usual.

    I think it is hard to sustain a series this long without extremely likable characters. And that is what this series has for me. Each of the characters contributes their unique skills and they work together as a team and it is fun and you root them along.

    In this one, the mystery had some interesting suspects but I felt the throwaway significant piece that brought it all together was thrown in at the last minute. Then you go - oh yeah... But satisfying nonetheless
