A delicious case of foul play..
An eccentric artist wants Miss Seeton's beloved cottage for his newest work: a chocolate-covered house. But no amount of money or publicity will convince her to give up her home, especially when there are more important matters to attend to. The unexpected deaths of otherwise healthy elderly residents--all who had used the services of a certain asphalt company--have the police baffled. And though Miss Seeton is being stalked by the confectionary sculptor, it's up to her and her trusty sketch pad to discover who is paving the path to ruin for Plummergen's senior citizens...
MSS 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 at every turn the most lovable and unlikely master of detection.
