4.0 out of 5 stars M. Jeffries learns the trade 10 Nov 2008
By Marie
Format:Paperback
I enjoy these Emily Brightwell novels, apart from the irritating americanisms, which would certainly not have occured in Victorian London. Otherwise an excellent read and very good value for money with 3 books in one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not A New Book 20 Mar 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Please note: This is not a new book in the series but a collection of previously published books. So if you already have (1) The Inspector and Mrs. Jeffries (2) Mrs. Jeffries Dusts for Clues and (3) The Ghost and Mrs. Jeffries don't buy Mrs. Jeffries Learns the Trade.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a new book!! 26 Mar 2005
By loveamazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was so very disappointed to receive this, only to find that it is only a collection of the first 3 books in the series!

I love this series, and I was so happy to see a new title that I ordered this as soon as it came out. I should have waited for a review to see what was really happening. I'll do that with the Brightwell books from now on.

Other authors publish collections, but you always know from the titles that they are collections. I was tricked into thinking this was a new story because of the title.

Don't order this book unless you really want the collection of her first 3 books! I'd give 0 stars if I could - because of the misleading title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful stories! 8 July 2005
By Peggy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This collection of three Mrs. Jeffries mysteries is a sheer delight! Watch Mrs. Jeffries and her quirky staff grow in confidence and expertise as they track down the guilty parties. (Is Smythe sweet on Betsy?) Settle down in your comfy chair and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent British Cozy 4 April 2014
By Clarasdaughter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Housekeeper Mrs. Jeffries "helps" her police detective employer solve crimes with the assistance of her below stairs companions. Somewhat like the Baker Street Irregulars, they ferret out details which he needs to do his job. Of course he is unaware that she is doing so as she subtly leads him to discover these clues on his own, so to speak. A wonderful read and a satisfying series. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for New Fans of the Series 21 Jun 2012
By Deborah S - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I ordered this specifically because it contained the first 3 books of the series. It's a way to be introduced to the books and the characters, since the early ones are not so easily available and I like reading the series in order, if possible. I was glad to see this volume offered.
