Miss Seeton returns! – a new original (the first in almost 20 years) for this classic series of humorous cosy mysteries created by Heron Carvic.  
It’s practically a Royal Marriage! The highly eligible son of Miss Seeton’s old friends Sir George and Lady Colveden has wed the daughter of a French count.  
Miss Seeton lends her talents to the village scheme to create a quilted ‘Bayeux Tapestry’ of local history, inspired by the wedding. But her intuitive sketches reveal a startlingly different perspective – involving buried Nazi secrets, and links to the mysterious death of a diplomat and to a South American dictator . . .  
Serene amidst every kind of skulduggery, 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.” Editorial reviews:  
“A most beguiling protagonist!” New York Times  
“Miss Seeton gets into wild drama with fine touches of farce . . . This is a lovely mixture of the funny and the exciting.” San Francisco Chronicle  
“This is not so much black comedy as black-currant comedy . . . You can’t stop reading. Or laughing.” The Sun  
“Depth of description and lively characters bring this English village to life.” Publishers Weekly  
“Fun to be had with a full cast of endearingly zany villagers . . . and the ever gently intuitive Miss Seeton.” Kirkus Reviews  
“Miss Seeton is the most delightfully satisfactory character since Miss Marple.” Ogden Nash
