Miss Buncle's Book is exactly what I needed. It "worked on me like a tonic". It is charmingly set between the wars in a small English village ( that's practically a guarantee for success right there, isn't it?) that is peopled with an eclectic population of folk that are not all as neighborly as they could be. Mousy Miss Buncle writes a novel about them all and their reactions to reading about themselves in that book make up all the fun that happens next. I loved the twists and turns of the clever plot but most of all the fabulous, satisfying ending. Now! Ahem: I solemnly swear to collect and read every book D. E. Stevenson ever wrote, so help me Amazon. Yeah.

Leslie Oh squeeeee! I haven't read those but added them to my Amazon wish list after reading this one. Nice to get a thumbs up from a likeminded reader.
