    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.
