I love mysteries and especially British mysteries. Written in 1968, Picture Miss Seeton is a shining star which reminded me of a cross between Miss Marple and Agatha Raisin (Agatha Raisin series by M.C. Beaton).
Miss Emily Seeton, after leaving a performance at the theater, witnesses the murder of a prostitute. Scotland Yard leads a wonderfully entertaining investigation into the murder that leads them to Miss Seeton and the entire village of Plummergen., England. The author introduces great characters that love to gossip, snoop and investigate on their own terms that results in plenty of quirky twists and humor. This is a great read for anyone who loves to read this genre.
