Witch Miss Seeton by Heron Carvic

Miss Seeton is back.  She's still a bit vague and confused and she's also in the midst of police business.  It's good thing they have a deep expense account to pay for her umbrellas...

Farrago and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published today.

I'm enjoying this series.  Miss Seeton can get in more messes just by living.  The local village just loves to gossip about her and they are very creative with their tales.  When she's draining fruit to get the juice for jam, they think it's dripping blood and share monstrous conclusions that she must be a witch for it has to be a baby's blood, doesn't it?  Nobody tells Miss Seeton about so, she just lives her life normally (which other people think is abnormal).

Somehow, whenever anyone goes after her, they end up on the wrong side of her umbrella.  (I think she went through three of them in this story.)

Her "cases" she gets involved in are always a bit far fetched to me but they do make entertaining reading.  In this one, there are con men in the village trying to fleece the old ladies.  It appears to be working quite well until Miss Seeton goes to a meeting.  They even try to burn her as a virgin sacrifice but, as usual, Miss Seeton gets away and doesn't really understand what just happened.  I feel sorry for her superintendent friend.  She's going to give him a heart attack yet.

These are cozies with humor and mayhem.  There's lots of action and the stories are filled with her friends gathering close to protect her.  I do enjoy reading them.  Give them a try.
