Mrs. Jeffries Defends Her Own (Berkley Prime Crime Mysteries)
Mrs. Jeffries Defends Her Own (Berkley Prime Crime Mysteries)
by Emily Brightwell
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £5.56

3.0 out of 5 stars Americanisms, 6 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read two of the Mrs Jeffries books and quite enjoyed them, but I cringe at the lack of authentic English speech and habits. We don't say 'gotten' (we say got), we don't take cream in our tea (we take milk), we say napkins (not serviettes), etc, etc. There are so many of them that it might put some English readers off. I won't be reading any more.
