Flappy enters the esteemed company of authors like E.F. Benson of Mapp and Lucia renown in this novel. Here is a story of a classic busybody full of her own importance…and yet, readers root for Flappy all the same.
In this second in a series, Flappy has much to flap about. She has had an affair with the delectable Charles even though his wife is one of her close friends. In outdoing the neighbors, she is planning un ballo in maschera, there is a new couple in the village who (horrors) sit in Flappy’s church pew and, as if that were not enough, Flappy’s son is here from Australia. Watch as the indomitable Flappy juggles everything and enjoy a fun read. This book is perfectly fine as a standalone but readers may want to seek out the first in the series as well.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Simon & Schuster UK for this title. All opinions are my own.
