This book contains all the original characters, Mapp, Lucia, Georgie, Major Benjie, the Wyses, Diva, etc., It is entirely set in Tilling, England, a small, on the marshes but near the sea town. Daily life is punctuated by the rivalry of two women, Mapp and Lucia. This time. as usual, they follow their own interests and, as one begins to outdo the other, the other takes up the same interest to do battle. One of those things this time is the game of Monopoly. Mapp finds a game and busts up Lucia's tapestry circle by bringing the game to be played at break. Everyone adjourns to play monopoly and that halts work forever on Lucia's town tapestry project. What to do? Well, Lucia takes up Monopoly too, soon taking on Mapp as an opponent.
There is also Mapp as a new driver and she may be the worst driver in all of England. Then there is Mapp's lineage, i.e. her attempt to show she is a descendant of the noble de Map (a complete fabrication). The Queen also visits Tilling and everyone is in rivalry to meet, greet and impress the Queen.
Great fun. I only wish Holt had written more of these.

Friday's entry will always be weekend entertainment recs from my 5 star Amazon reviews in film, tv, books and music. These are very heavy on buried treasures and hidden gems.

Couldn't Mr. Holt or someone as skilled write a pastiche about Mapp & Lucia meeting Wallis Warfield (Mrs. Simpson; the Duchess of Windsor)? Please? Or something, anything.
I could mention a small flaw or two, places where the EF Benson humor wasn't emulated as well, but all in all I loved this book. There were several laugh out loud moments.
Best of all I got to once again walk the streets of Tilling.
