a real treat!

I enjoyed this Honeybath cozy-romance even more than Innes' Inspector Appleby tales, mostly because Laurie does Brit tongue-in-cheek eccentricity better than anyone else. The very small mystery element is not the point - it's the play of words and humour, with Innes poking fun at his genre as much as the foibles late 20th century British aristocrats. It's more of a precursor to McCall Smith's 44 Scotland St series than a mystery. A short but sweet listen, it's worth a credit.

Hilarious Story, Fantastic Narration!

This was a shorter, but brilliant story of the class system in England and a satirical look at the absurdities of English manners in the modern world. Hugh Laurie's narration brought the characters to life and had me laughing the whole way through! A thoroughly enjoyable read!
