When Irene Spencer meets Vera Small at her daughter Lesley's wedding reception, they embark upon a correspondence that is quite unlike any other in the history of letter writing.

Beware - NOT the complete series

I love the Ladies of Letters. Despite already having seasons 1, 3, and 4, I pounced on this as soon as I had a new credit available.

However, despite the name, this is NOT the complete series. One reason I wanted this is because I can't find Season 2 anywhere. Maybe this is a copyright issue? Maybe this is only a problem outside the UK? Well, for whatever reason, Season 2 is not in this "complete" collection, either. I was disappointed, but this has given me the other seasons that I'm missing, so it was still a good purchase. And, as always, the adventures of Vera and Irene are laugh-out-loud hilarious.

But please, please, please, Audible, give us Season 2!!!!!
