I enjoy this series very much. Great cozies. Some of the funny statements are a riot. She is a great writer in my estimation. The mysteries are fun and have many twists and turns, this one about the different members of the house trying to cook, was really fun. I'm looking forward to the next ones in the series.
Old English household help does sluething to help the inspector
Amusing and enjoyable read.
Oh dear. Mrs. Goodge, the cook, is away, and the staff has to help cook the meals in her absence. The trouble is, none of them remotely measure up, and they and the Inspector have to eat horrible meals. The Inspector, of course, is too polite to complain, and only asks now and then if Mrs. Jeffries (the housekeeper and leader of the staff) has found a replacement cook. Of course they can't hire a replacement cook - the staff has to investigate the murder in SECRET, and it wouldn't do to have a stranger in the house. But they can't very well tell the Inspector that.
This one was just so funny with the cook and the rest of the staff trying to fill in and her outrage when she gets back just after the murder is solved! The mystery was well plotted, written and thoroughly enjoyed by me! GREAT READ!!!
