Summary

When Miss Seeton walks out after a performance of Carmen and witnesses a real-life stabbing, all she can recall is a shadowy figure. But how could she have guessed that her latest artistic endeavor is a picture-perfect portrait of the killer? Her sketch puts her in a perilous position, for back at her recently inherited cottage in Plummergen village, she's fated to be a sitting duck...for murder most foul!

Meet Miss Emily D. Seeton: retired art teacher Miss Seeton steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles. Armed with only her sketch pad and umbrella, she is every inch an eccentric English spinster and the most lovable and unlikely master of detection.

A warm & delightful mystery story

What made the experience of listening to Picture Miss Seeton the most enjoyable?

The narrator had the right tone of voice for the characters. It was beautifully narrated. The story was a quintessential English mystery story in the ilk of Miss Marple. The interaction of the characters was written with humour.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Picture Miss Seeton?

I think the opening was quite memorable, it draws you in so that you want to hear what mystery lies behind the murder. You are trying to picture the opera she has just left, when the story takes hold with Miss Seeton witnessing a murder.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

No one scene jumped out, but I loved the fast paced conversations held between Miss Seeton & the other characters.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It certainly made me laugh.

Any additional comments?

I would suggest curling up on the sofa with a pot of tea, a tin of biscuits or a large piece of cake & settling down to listen to this delightful audiobook.

Definitely NOT Miss Marple

I really didn’t like this book at all and gave up after 4 chapters. The narrator does her best but the writing is just so ponderous and everything is described in such minute detail that it drove me crazy.
I won’t be reading anymore of the series

lovely easy listening

I enjoyed every minute of this. If you're not looking for anything too serious or hard hitting, then this is great. It was funny and the carachters are likeable. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Not for me

This to me was boring. Slow, ridiculous how many times miss Seaton survived the attacks. Was it supposed to be funny?

How stupid is this woman...

... how stupid can one person be? Especially the so called heroine, then you meet the villagers, never listened to such drivel
Narrator very good. Will not be buying any more by this author
