Publisher's Summary

A sudden interest in the occult swept through the English village of Plummergen, with Ouija boards replacing the best china in many a cozy cottage.

It might be quite the thing for maiden ladies and persnickity aunts, but it wasn't Miss Seeton's cup of tea...until Scotland Yard requested she go undercover to investigate some sinister shenanigans in the Kentish countryside. A flim-flam was afoot in the local witches' coven...and magic could be a prelude to murder most foul.

Serene amidst every kind of skullduggery, retired art teacher Miss Seeton steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles. Armed with nothing more than her sketchpad and umbrella, she is at every turn the most lovable and unlikely master of detection.

Just in Time for Halloween!

Just in time for Halloween the publisher (Prelude/Farrago) has released an AUDIO. My original review for the ebook is below and I love the story as much or more than ever, especially as enhanced by the beautifully rounded tones of narrator Phyllida Nash as she captures the vocal essence of each character and sets a very agreeable listening pace.

~~~My review from last year~~~
Miss Seeton is everyone's favorite maiden aunt--unless of course one has Evil Intentions. As she goes through her absolutely ordinary life chaos ensues in her wake. A retired art teacher, her
knack for drawing not what she sees with her eyes but what she sees with her soul has proven to be of infinite use to Scotland Yard; but woe betide any who seek to harm her. Her purse, brolly (umbrella) and hat provide protection and retribution against most ills.

With "Witch Miss Seeton" we are flying around again, this time with a witches coven and a cult religion providing the witches brew. Is Miss Ess a witch and running the whole affair?

Any time I find a "new" (rerelease of the original series) title in my reader it jumps to the head of the queue and never fails to please.

fun and light hearted.

I've really enjoyed these books. they're funny light hearted stories. But if the author is going to base them in England and make them so very English I wish she'd get the language right. In England we do not have flash lights or sidewalks. we have torches and pavements.

I laughed out loud

What people must think of me whilst I’m stuck in a traffic jam and thankful for it so that I can sit and laugh out loud all to myself.

These stories aren’t silly by any means, cleverly thought out with great characters. But if you’re looking for gripping drama this isn’t it. It’s a really lovely step off the train of working, stress and tiredness of life and onto a platform of innocence and comedy.

I’ve loved every one I have listened too so far. Thank you xx
