This book has an unlikely premise - an inept Scotland Yard inspector receives assistance in solving crimes from his housekeeper. He's so inept he doesn't even realize she is helping him.
I don't want "realism" from cozy mysteries. What I look for are interesting characters (quirkiness helps), at least moderately complex plots and a good narrator. A little humor adds to my enjoyment.
The narrator of this book is fine. However, the characters seemed bland to me. The inspector was so clueless he annoyed me. There wasn't enough humor to overcome these problems.
I listened to about 70% of the book and gave up. I just didn't care how it ended.

I've read several Mrs. Jeffries stories and enjoyed them all. It was fun to catch the first in the series. Having some more background on all the characters gives the following stories more depth. I'll be reading another soon!
