Miss Buncle has rather unexpectedly found love later in life, all through the auspices of her best-selling book. This story takes us through the next phase of Miss Buncle's life - her adjustment to marriage. It was cute and heartwarming and in some places laugh-out-loud funny. For example - when she hides her nephew's trousers to prevent him meeting a girlfriend, the ensuing scene was one of the funniest I've ever read. There are issues finding and restoring a new home, issues with some odd neighbors and some decisions to be made as to writing a new book - all worth reading when you're looking for something light and frothy.
Just don't expect the dazzle of the original book and you won't be disappointed. It's still fun and definitely worth the price!
This one is a bit of a let down from some of her others simply because while I still love the descriptions and the characters, in this one Barbara comes across as (dare I say it) stupid.....
In Miss Buncle's Book you have this naïve little woman who needed money and so she wrote a book. She was cute, she was funny, she didn't know what she was doing but it worked.
In this one you have her doing things like reading a will that obviously should not have been read (just because she was told to you would think she would have figured out that she didn't need to after a bit) and thus has all kinds of secrets that she has to keep to herself and of course tries to micromanage her way around people's lives and it just didn't seem right. Add to that the fact that she quite often comes across as someone without a backbone at all and by the end of it you have basically lost respect for this woman that you loved so much in the first book.
Still an OK read, but don't give up on Stevenson after you have read it. She has done much better work.
