5.0 out of 5 stars Great read
Great read, easy reading, really enjoy this type of book. Detective stories that you can follow on with the next book in the series. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Americanisms
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.
