Mrs. Jeffries and the Silent Knight

I am adding this book to my personal reading list. The author is Emily Brightwell, the publisher is The Berkley Publishing Group.

I am not a lover of the mystery. However, and I am not proud to admit this, I purchased this book because I was attracted to the dust jacket. The art work drew me in. Ok, I know that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover.

However, in this case, the cover was a fair judge of the book. It was a quick, easy read. It isn’t very long and the hardback version is a small size which makes holding it easy for arthritic hands and wrists. The story got me from the beginning. While some of it was obvious, the ending wasn’t — I was surprised and it was very clever. The characters are pretty well developed, they were likeable (the ones that were supposed to be) and the ones that weren’t supposed to be — well, they weren’t. I didn’t expect all this out of a book that was really simply written and straightforward. No sophistication here but a good story, good characters and a novel ending.

I would recommend.
