Witch Miss Seeton (A Miss Seeton Mystery Book 3) (English Edition) Reviews
Vielleicht liegt es daran, dass ich die vorhergehenden Bände der Reihe nicht kannte, weswegen mir einige wichtige Informationen zu den Charakteren fehlen, aber nach diesem Buch sehe ich keinen Grund, mehr über sie zu wissen. Die Protagonistin wird nur am Rande erwähnt, und auch das nur sehr vage, vor allem ihre Exzentrik wird hervorgehoben, doch die macht noch keinen Menschen. Der Plot ist höchst unglaubwürdig, wirkt gesucht und gekünstelt. Es ist einfach keine wirklich interessante Geschichte, auch wenn die Idee einiges hergeben könnte. Nicht wirklich lesenswert.
I'm not a fan of reviewing a book but the first five books, written by Heron Carvic, were so good that I felt compelled to write of how much I enjoyed (actually I loved every book and have reread each one of them several times and will probably read them several times more) each book. First, I tried to explain Miss Seeton, then, when I found myself unable to do it, I thought I would try to explain why I found her so fascinating. It must have something to do with her personality but it's more than that. People have compared her to Miss Marple but I disagree. Miss Marple realizes there is evil in the world. Miss Seeton doesn't. Her very naiveness is one of the joys of the books. Both her neighbors and most of Britain know her as 'The Battling Brolly.' She would be mortified if she knew it. To herself, she is just a retired art teacher who draws pictures when the police ask her to. The Oracle, or Superintendent Delphick of Scotland Yard, is her mentor and seems to be the only one who understands her when nobody else does. They have a refreshing relationship. The many characters in these books are remarkable. Bob and Anne, Constable Potter, Dr. Knight, The Vicar Treeves and his wife, Sir George Colveden and his wife and son, and the others who live in all the Miss Seeton books are so just who they seem to be and enliven the pages with their personalities. Altogether a wonderful set of books with all five and, if possible, another five stars for contents, personalities and MISS SEETON,
The Miss Seeton of Book 3 is true to the Miss Seeton of Books 1 and 2, as are all the other recurring characters of the series - some of whom are intelligent or plain sober folk, while others are quirky. The story here is a bit more complex than Books 1 or 2, but that is no complaint. It is handled just as well. There is plenty of the expected humor (in parody of the traditional elderly English spinster who somehow manages to excel at both creating and solving mysteries, without being aware that either one is happening), and enough complexity in the mystery to maintain the mysteries.It is a fun read, as the others are, but this time it includes a touch of poignancy in one of the deaths. I'm anxious to see the possible effect of this on the characters in the next episode. If you haven't yet, you should read the first two books in the series in order to fully appreciate this one.
I enjoy these as a light-hearted, change of pace from the more violent and darker mystery/suspense thrillers I read. I also really enjoy Agatha Christie's Miss Marple books and these are a more tongue-in-cheek version of the elderly spinster as detective genre. After the first few you pretty much know where the plot is going to go but the ride is enjoyable. This series of books is for those that enjoy an amusing, pleasant, low-key visit with a favorite, familiar aunt before returning to the hectic, violent, more realistic adventures of the Jack Reachers, Harry Boschs or Harry Holes.
I stumbled over these Miss Seeton books on Book Bub & thought I’d try them. They’re not my usual type of reading material, but I love them! She’s so innocent and oblivious about what’s happening around her. The townspeople sometimes get me angry, and then I end up shaking my head. There’s plenty of suspense in each book and a little bit of humor to go along with it. Totally enjoyable!
Cults and criminals...interesting combination. In this edition of the Miss Seeton series, we find the perpetually confused heroine once again working with the police in order to help solve a crime in which she is in no way qualified to do.By the end though, she has managaed to help round up the bad guys and we find that one of Miss Seeton's super powers is that she is apparently fireproof. Who knew?
