A flower seller is brutally murdered and Inspector Witherspoon finds himself investigating a complex case of long lost children and greedy relatives. Naturally his domestic staff - led by the astute Mrs Jeffries are quickly on to the case with a certain amount of amusing rivalry between the men and the women.

I enjoyed this amusing and well written mystery with its tense and dangerous finale. I like the way the characters interact with some disputes and fallings out which are generally smoothed over before they can do too much harm.

If you like your crime stories with an historical background and without too much on the page violence then I recommend this series. They can be read in any order but it is interesting to see the way the characters and relationships develop if you read them in the order in which they were published.

this series is a lovely easy read, good for a wet afternoon, I just wish more would be put onto Kindle - I would love to read the whole series, you really need to start with the first one as although they can be read in isolation its nicer to see the roles of the staff and their friends developing

It was a disappointing read as it was obvious that Mrs Jeffries had not interpreted the facts correctly. Also the books appear to be getting shorter
