Miss Seeton accused! The kindly Miss Seeton? A thief? A preposterous notion - until the lovable spinster mistakes tomato ketchup for blood . . . and the "wounded" man she's trying to help is robbed by a pickpocket. In a flurry of confusion, Mis Seeton is accused of being the thief's accomplice! And in the hands of the London police, our unlikely jailbird uncovers a veritable nest of crime . . .

Serene amidst every kind of skullduggery, this eccentric English spinster steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles, armed with nothing more than her sketchpad and umbrella!

What people are saying about Miss Seeton:

"Miss Seeton is a hoot! I was torn between laughter and eye rolling with each page turn. The characters are loveable and thoroughly British. This is a perfect specimen of classic British mystery."

"What a joy Miss Seeton is. Why did I wait so long to read them? Splashy characters, lovely setting, and just plain funny."

"I've become a Miss Ess addict. Great characters that get better with each book. A must for anyone who loves a good British cozy with a twist, and surprising revelations of what a good brollie can do in a pinch."

"What a great series. This is one of the best in English light reading mysteries."

"Miss Seeton is a delightful sendup of the amateur sleuth. If your doctor has prescribed laughter as the best medicine, run and buy the entire series as fast as you can."
