Summary
In this cozy story, Barbara Buncle, a wallflower and spinster, is in need of income, and so decides to write a book about the only thing she knows the residents of her small village in England. Much to her amazement, the book is accepted for publishing under a pseudonym and becomes quite popular, but when her fellow villagers read it and recognize themselves, she creates quite the tempest in a teapot. Some residents vow to sue the author and hunt him down, but they have no idea that Miss Buncle is the culprit. When events in the book begin to take place in real life, the village changes for the better.
Critique
First of a trilogy, this is a humorous, quick read, perfect for a winter afternoon.
