I love Jill Churchill's Jane Jeffry mysteries and their absolutely awful pun titles. This one is the first - where Jane sets out to figure out who killed her cleaning lady. Jane Jeffrey is a single mom (not by choice) trying to raise 3 kids on her own. She lost her husband when he was killed in an accident. Grime and punishment in the housewife Jane Jeffry mystery series set a Chicago suburb. Jane’s husband died in an auto accident 7 months earlier leaving her as a single mother with 3 children ages 15, 13 and 10 and dealing with an somewhat pompous mother-in-law.

They stood at the kitchen door, watching the red MG back out and drive away. And did you see the fishy look that went with it? The idiot was waiting for me to break down and confess, like the last scene in a Perry Mason movie!". Maybe he does suspect both of us," Shelley admitted. But why shouldn't he? He doesn't know us any more than he knows the rest of them.

School had only been in session for three rainy autumn days, and this was the first sunny morning. Today, several of the women were out of their cars, chatting with each other. Two were dressed in sporty tennis dresses and carrying rackets. Katie glanced at them and then raked her mother with an I-told-you-so glare.

The most important thing she'd learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one. "Hitting the decks running" wasn't a requirement

Jill Churchill has won the Agatha and Macavity Mystery Readers awards and was nominated for an Anthony Award for her bestselling Jane Jeffry series. She is also the author of the highly acclaimed Grace and Favor mysteries and lives in the Midwest. Whatever the reason for that half-hearted effort, "Grime and Punishment" is so much better in terms of style, humor and plot, though the plot was still a bit thin.

Grime and Punishment" is the delightful first book in Jill Churchill's Jane Jeffrey cozy mystery series. Jane is a well-written character - a single mother struggling not only to raise three young children, but also trying to accept the circumstances behind her husband's death. Her children - Mike, Katie, and Todd - are also well written and some of the best parts of the book are the scenes with Jane and her children going about their every day life. I especially liked the fact that Jane volunteered to drive blind children, it added a nice dimension to her character.

Grime and Punishment. Book in the Jane Jeffry Series). What follows is an hysterical and enjoyable read. great characters including those secondary ones.

It's So hard to Kill Good Help These Days. . .

With three kids to raise on her own, Jane Jeffry sometimes needs a hand with the housework. But many of her complaining neighbors believe that the Happy Helper cleaning lady they all share wouldn't know a dustball if she was choking on it. That hardly seems reason enough, however, to do the disreputable domestic in.

So when the charwoman in question is discovered strangled to death with a vacuum cleaner cord, Jane decides to dig up the real dirt--if the tenacious single mom can find any time to spare between her PTA meetings and car-pooling duties. But despite her busy schedule, Jane is determined to tidy up the whole murderous mess--even if it means provoking a killer who may live as close as next door.

I had given up on Jill Churchill after I read "Bell, Book & Scandal," which I can only term amateurish, but maybe her editor encouraged her to write a chicklit-style novel to get those readers to cross over into mystery... Whatever the reason for that half-hearted effort, "Grime and Punishment" is so much better in terms of style, humor and plot, though the plot was still a bit thin. Still, it's an amusing escapade into mundane suburban (Chicago) life centered around a bunch of car-pooling PTA moms, with astute and hilarious insights into raising kids. There is a serious side too, dealing with Jane Jeffry's marriage, which rings true, and her forray into considering dating again is believably portrayed. A good bedtime read!

Based on the previous ratings of all the books in this series, I thought I'd enjoy the first 10 or so. Fortunately I ordered only the 1st one; I won't be getting more.

I warmed up to Jane over the course of the book, but didn't much like her at first. It took a while until a reader learns why she was ambivalent about her late husband. I thought the explanation of why she & Shelley were friends despite different personalities wasn't put very well. It made it sound like anyone who lived next door would have become Jane's best friend. And how was it that she'd never, before the day the story started, seen Shelley's regular, weekly cleaning woman? There were a number of other things like this that seemed unlikely to me.

I am a fan of Jill Churchill. Her Books are very well written and keeps me interested with out all the off color words used by so many, this book was not disapointing! She did her usual job of a well written mystery. Happy with my purchase
