Odds On Miss Seeton by Heron Carvic

There are times when the right book manages to rescue you. That's what ODDS ON MISS SEETON did for me this week.

It is 110-120 in the desert. My car's central computer system literally melted from the heat. I was called to jury duty and assigned to a

Witch Miss Seeton by Heron Carvic
Rate this book
Clear rating
I am a great fan of Heron Carvic's Miss Seeton stories. They are light-hearted, off-beat, and full of fun. If I were headed to an airport or train station for a long journey, I would pack as many of these books as my tote could carry.

That said, this

Keeping in mind that we are not reading Proust, Lord I loved this book! Miss Seaton at her best!

Years ago when working for a mega-corporation my department was assigned a fancy Ph.D. "organizational development" consultant. At the end of "THE PROCESS

I enjoy books set in the theater, so that was a plus for me in this very very complicated mystery. The idea of Josephine Tey as a protagonist also appealed to me, but her gentleman friend (the police inspector) was actually a far more interesting cha ...more

It is over 110 degrees outside and I am fully immersed in my lineup of "summer reads."

They can't be too demanding; I am simply too brain-dead to apply myself.

They have to be diverting, but with some wee promise of enlightenment.

And, they can't put me

Reading one of Brother Cadfael's Medieval adventures always leaves me in a serene state. No amount of mayhem or muddle is too much for this wise and worldly monk.

It is 115 degrees outside --- with summer just beginning in the desert, I think I will h

I try never to let other readers influence my reaction to a book, but I found it fascinating to scroll over the reviews of Charleston. Very few reviewers were indifferent to the book: they either loved it or were totally dismissive of it.

As a good midwesterner who enjoys cooking and eating, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It took me a while to bond with the book, but about half way through my interest in it escalated and my opinion of the book became more positive.
