4.5 stars - Three stories from one of my favorite series in one volume 20 April 2013
By CJ-MO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Mrs. Jeffries Victorian mystery series has become one of my favorite series. I'm so glad the older books in the series are being released again. "Mrs. Jeffries Takes Tea at Three" includes the 7th, 8th, and 9th books in the series, which I had not been able to find before now.

The overall premise of this series is Mrs. Jeffries and the rest of Scotland Yard Detective Gerald Witherspoon's staff help him solve his cases. The unique thing about the series is while the household and a few close friends work together to solve murders, the Inspector doesn't realize what they're doing. This may sound far-fetched, but it works and the result is a charming series with likeable characters that care about each other and making sure justice is served in the cases they help with.

The three books included within this volume are:
1.) "Mrs. Jeffries Plays the Cook" - This is my favorite of the three. It was an interesting mystery about the murder of a man with many enemies. It has equal parts of humor, touching scenes between the characters in the household, and the investigation.
2.) "Mrs. Jeffries and the Missing Alibi" - The household must work with Constable Barnes in this story when Witherspoon is removed from the case because he is a suspect. This was my least favorite of the three stories.
3.) "Mrs. Jeffries Stands Corrected" - The Inspector uses different methods to solve the murder and the solution of the case plays out in an unexpected way.

Although I didn't enjoy all of the stories equally, I'm happy anytime I can spend time with Mrs. Jeffries, Smythe, Betsy and the others. I highly recommend this for fans of the series or readers who enjoy a nice cozy, Victorian mystery with pleasant characters who will become friends.

Great Book Series 3 April 2013
By DVD watcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Mrs. Jeffries series is my very favorite "cozy mystery" series. They are easy reads, VERY well written, and VERY enjoyable. Although I thought this was a NEW book in the series (I failed to read the description properly, this book contains 3 (separate) earlier books in the series. However, I am VERY glad that I purchased this book.
Many of the earlier books are out of print and VERY expensive to purchase used (and sometimes astronomical if someone has a "new" copy). Since I am trying to buy all of the books in the series, this was a very convenient and economical way to purchase the earlier books. Again, this book contains 3 of the earlier books in the series - Mrs. Jeffries Plays the Cook; Mrs. Jeffries and the Missing Alibi; and Mrs. Jeffries Stands Corrected. Great buy, great books, highly recommend.

I Love Mrs. Jeffries 18 April 2013
By E.M. Jalph - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I can't go too long without a "Mrs. Jeffries" fix. I have come to view the characters as family. Getting the latest book is like receiving a long anticipated chain letter from my family in which all the latest happenings are discussed. The staff at Inspector Witherspoon's home may aid the unsuspecting Inspector in solving the latest murder, but more than that, they provide the reader a peek into Victorian England and an opportunity to share tea and conversation with a lively crew of characters.
"Mrs. Jeffries Takes Tea At Three" is a triple treat as there are three stories in one book. Delightful!

Good Read 5 May 2013
By James S. Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These three books, for the most part, were not quite as well written as some of Ms. Brightwell's other Mrs. Jeffries books, however we did enjoy reading them. The Smythe — Betsy relationship seems to be be developing slowly, and this is one of our interests in the earlier books. We look forward to the fourth anthology that will be available later this year and the fifth anthology that will be available sometime after that — we hope. These two remaining anthologies will complete our collection of this series, and we have enjoyed the plots, the heroes and heroines, and the lack of vulgarity in them.
