There's an inspector with Scotland Yard who isn't very good at deduction and finding clues. But his housekeeper is. So she tries to solve the mysteries and let him think that ideas are his own.
She uses the other staff to help her on the QT. The cook who has bad arthritis and knows everything about everyone because she feeds 'tramps' and asks them things.
The horse trainer and tender who spends time in the pubs after work.
The young houseboy who is constantly falling in love with young women.
And, the maid.
They all adore the inspector, because he helped each of them. He inherited from his aunt and kept people on, even though he may not have needed them, and they found the maid down and out, sick, and took her in, which gave her a job, food and shelter, and kept her from turning to the streets.
Anyway, I'm enjoying following along and trying to figure out whodunit.
Wow, that sounds like a great night's sleep! I hope that you have more of those to come; restful sleep!
It sounds like everyone's relaxed now that the puppies are gone.
Good news about the rain!
