23rd Miss Seeton book (and the 15th by Hamilton Crane, by my count). Published April 19th by Farrago, it's 272 pages and available in ebook and paperback formats.
The Miss Seeton books are 'comfort' reading. You pretty much know exactly what you're in for when you read one. They're the coziest of cozies. The titular character is gently bred, timeless, unchanging, sweetly naive, and tuned in to some subtle cosmic wavelength which allows her to collaborate with the constabulary to solve crimes. The murders are (relatively) bloodless, the language is perfectly innocent, the plots are lightly humorous without being sarcastic.
In general, the series is well crafted and the plotting and dialogue are well done. This particular book was a trifle scattered in places, but tied everything together in the end. I love love love Miss Seeton and have been enjoying the series since sometime in the late 1970s.
I highly recommend the books (and this book specifically) for fans of cozies and elderly female gentlewoman sleuths.
Possibly worth noting for Kindle Unlimited subscribers, this book is included in the KU subscription.
Four stars, really enjoyed this one a lot.
Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
