Publisher's Summary

Miss Seeton is most embarrassed. Her every attempt at a portrait of little Effie Goffer has become a chilling picture of a corpse. Is Miss Seeton actually drawing a clue to a series of child murders in rural England? Scotland Yard thinks so, and wants Miss Seeton to turn from sketching...to catching a killer skilled in a very deadly art.

Retired art teacher Miss Seeton steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles. Armed with only her sketch pad and umbrella, she is every inch an eccentric English spinster and at every turn the most lovable and unlikely master of detection.

Cannot Resist MissEss!

I originally reviewed this when it first came out but have now had a chance to enjoy the audible version so here is my expanded review:

I admit it--I cannot resist Miss Seeton! This new plot is a bit more involved than the first but most of the characters you met first time around are back and in good form. Oh, you didn't read the first book? That's alright--each person stands on his own. Red herrings abound but all comes out in the end (not a spoiler--you'd have been crushed otherwise!) and you may rest assured the Brolly (that's "umbrella" to us Yanks) does its part.

And oh, oh, oh, you MUST obtain a copy of the AUDIO for this, narrated delightfully by the ever-talented, husky-voiced Phyllida Nash who brings to life our heroine in all her delightful quirkiness, as she sits in the eye of the storm while havoc ensues around her.

Enjoyable

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performance in general was okay. I was confused at times about who was speaking. Perhaps part of the problem came from the fact that there is no narrative pause when the scene shifted from one set of characters to another.

Any additional comments?

I really liked the first book but I kept losing track of Miss Seaton in this one. I may listen again but there are so many books waiting and so little time......

Miss Seeton is an Idiot

The character, Miss Seeton is annoying beyond belief. No one could be as so completely unaware about the world she lives in, without being assigned a keeper. A waste of a credit.
