As Inspector Witherspoon's dedicated housekeeper, Mrs. Jeffries keeps things running smoothly and is quite clever at putting Witherspoon on the right track in case after case. In fact, Mrs. Jeffries' polished detective skills prove once again that behind every great man, there's a great woman.

My most recent audiobook for #audiowalking.

Visited Pat Conroy‘s grave; it‘s in a tiny little cemetery. People have left all kinds of things there — a lot of pens and pencils, a ceramic turtle, and a baseball among them.

#bookfitnesschallenge #bfc2 Week 3 checkin
Walking = 16.02 miles (6 of those were today)
Audiobooks finished = 4
Eating = okay; some days were better than others.
Rest of goals = did not meet because of vacation.

RachelO Still looking beautiful there! Good job on keeping up the walking during vacations - and 🌟🌟🌟 on the books. 6mo
KathyWheeler In case you can‘t read it, the quote on Conroy‘s gravestone is “My wound is geography. It is also my anchorage; my port of call.” From 6mo

KathyWheeler @RachelO Thanks! I‘m a little proud of myself over the walking. 😊 The books were easy because we‘re driving such long distances. 6mo
cobwebmoth Great job, especially since you were on vacation! 6mo
wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 A fantastic week! 🎉 it‘s hard to stick to routines when you‘re away. And that‘s okay. Because you met one very important goal—mental health. Vacations and get always are essential to resetting ourselves. So definitely celebrate that! 6mo
cewilf Wow, 6 miles in one day!! That‘s awesome. Great week! 6mo
Megabooks Six miles in one day! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I hope your vacation was wonderful! 6mo
Lady_Tigana_20 We did a trip to Beaufort years ago. We stayed on Harbor Island. I found his dad‘s grave. My husband thought I was nuts. 😂 I definitely want to go back and find Pat‘s grave. 6mo
KathyWheeler @Lady_Tigana_20 It‘s in a little tiny cemetery on St. Helena Island — St. Helena Memorial Gardens. It‘s a bit out of the way too. 6mo
KathyWheeler @wanderinglynn I love the idea that I‘m resetting myself with this vacation. It‘s been really great! 6mo
KathyWheeler @Megabooks It‘s been so good! 6mo
KathyWheeler @cewilf Thanks! I watched your jump. Loved it. ❤️ 6mo
cewilf @kathywheeler thank you!! I‘m so close!!! And hate falling that hard haha 6mo
KathyWheeler @cewilf you can do it! I just love to watch skaters. 6mo
Emilymdxn Great week! And 6 miles of walking in a day is a loooooot well done! 6mo
KathyWheeler @Emilymdxn thanks! The Gulf Coast beaches, where I live, are soft and, therefore, hard to walk on; these SC beaches, however, are hard-packed and easy to walk on. I‘d gone 2 miles before I even knew it! 6mo

mabell @batsy @Crazeedi It‘s exactly the type of story I think of for “cozy” 😊 7mo

ferskner Yay I'm glad you got a good one! 7mo
mabell @ferskner Yes, and I love that it is a series! It‘s so nice to continue with familiar characters 😊 7mo
GenreMinxReviews @mabell by book 4 it will feel a little formulaic I warn you but it pushes through and keeps improving. 7mo
mabell @GenreMinxReviews I‘m almost through book 2, so I‘ll be to book 4 in no time 😆 Thank you for the tip! 7mo

Mr. Witherspoon is a dim detective. Mrs Jeffries is a sly housekeeper. He never realizes she feeds him the clues he needs to solve the case (clues from info gathered by the other servants). This was a fun cozy mystery.

An entertaining read ☺

Just started listening to this. I think I'm going to enjoy it a lot.

taraWritesSci I love stories like this written from the non traditional protagonist's perspective. Mrs. Hudson (Sherlock)! Etta Candy (Wonder Woman)! Hope this one stands out too. 2y
