Mrs. Jeffries Wins the Prize
by Emily Brightwell

Mrs. Jeffries is back in the New York Times
bestselling Victorian series, perfect for fans of Downton


The ladies of the Mayfair Orchid and Exotic Plant Society
are known for a bit of friendly rivalry, but the
backstabbing has never been literal—until now. When
Hiram Filmore, an orchid hunter and supplier, is found dead
in Mrs. Helena Rayburn’s conservatory, Inspector
Witherspoon is called in to weed out a murderer.

When it comes out that Mrs. Rayburn and her flowery friends
knew each other from long ago, Mrs. Jeffries begins to
suspect that there’s more to unearth about this case
than meets the eye. Now she, along with the rest of
Inspector Witherspoon’s household and friends, will
have to dig up the past to figure out which gardening
gentlewoman had a grudge worth killing for…

A Mrs. Jeffries Mystery

She keeps house for Inspector Witherspoon . . . and keeps
him on his toes. Everyone’s awed by his Scotland Yard
successes—but they don’t know about his secret
weapon. No matter how messy the murder or how dirty the
deed, Mrs. Jeffries’ polished detection skills are up
to the task . . . proving that behind every great man
there’s a woman—and that a crimesolver’s
work is never done.
