2014: 30. Miss Buncle Married

"We had better move," said Mr. Abbott causally.

Miss Buncle Married, D.E. Stevenson

Well, I guess twee English novels from the 1930's are my thing, now, because I loved this book and want to go out and buy all the sequels.  It is the sequel to Miss Buncle's Book, and it has to do with Miss Buncle (or as I should say, Mrs. Abbott) now that she has gone and gotten married.  Nothing much happens, really - some people fall in love, some neighbors are funny, etc.  Most of it has to do with the move quoted in the first line - they decide to leave the London suburbs for a nice small town, and once there they fix up a home and get involved with the local goings-on.  Again, nothing earth shattering here, but oh, what a lovely comfort read.  It's like Agatha Christie, with none of the nasty murders to clutter things up.  I mean, know yourself - if you liked The Spy Who Came in From the Cold and hate The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society, this probably isn't for you, but if you like sweet fluffy reads where nice things, you will like this one.
