Bonjour, Miss Seeton by Hamilton Crane, Heron Carvic


Rating: 4/5


Inspired by a wildly successful screening of Henry V, Plummergen village school decides on a trip to ‘the vasty fields of France’. The children are to visit the historic chateau of the Comte de Balivernes, and former art teacher Miss Emily Seeton is delighted to be asked to accompany them.

All goes so well that the charming Comte (definitely smitten by Miss S) and his daughter Louise are invited back to Plummergen – where Lord and Lady Colveden’s son Nigel is even more smitten with the lovely Louise.

But while l’amour blossoms, there’s also murder and mayhem to be reckoned with, and the Grand Bulldozer Race between six Kentish teams proves a more explosive finale than anyone anticipates . . .

Serene amidst every kind of skullduggery, this eccentric English spinster steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles, armed with nothing more than her sketchpad and umbrella!


When you combine mystery and humour, you get “Bonjour, Miss Seeton” and what a beautiful combination that is.

The retired art teacher, the lovely Miss Seeton is back for yet another suspenseful story. You can suspect that when the beginning of a mystery book is tinted with serenity, it’s only a matter of time before the storm hits and by storm, I mean murder!

I quite enjoyed reading this book just as much as I knew I would. Some of the characters are indubitably entertaining which adds a pleasant touch to the whole story. As a reader, your judgments might be obstructed by few factors but that only adds to the thrill and to me, that was the best part.

I would recommend this to everyone looking for a good story, coated in both humour and mystery. So if that’s your cup of tea, this book is definitely worth a read or two!

I would like to thank NetGalley, the publishers, and the author for providing me with an ARC Copy of this amazing book!
