    " This and Queen Lucia are my favorite of the Lucia/Mapp books, though be warned if you have a soft spot for Lucia that her dignity is in tatters by the end of this book. At least she doesn't know it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jude Brigley | 1/14/2014

    " mILDLY AMUSING BUT WHAT GHASTLY PEOPLE. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/9/2014

    " This book doesn't have quite the bite that Queen Lucia had, the first in the series. "

    " Absolutely hysterical! E. F. Benson's 'Lucia & Mapp' books are like your favorite dessert; one simply must indulge, but not in excess! This was a priceless read, and my very first introduction to the series. I look forward to acquiring and reading the rest of Benson's work. "

    " My 7th time reading it through -- still love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/30/2013

    " Pure British fluff, but sometimes you need fluff. Part of a larger series, that I first discovered years ago. Not so fabulous that I want to run out and read every single one, but mildly amusing. Plus, it's set in that great period between the wars. I heart British social nonsense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlotte | 11/19/2013

    " Ah, Lucia. Dear to my heart. I have to pick it up again every once in a while just because I miss them all so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teri Zipf | 11/3/2013

    " I liked this one better than Queen Lucia. These books are so fun and relaxing, the perfect antidote to hours spent in ICU. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Corvine | 9/21/2013

    " Camp world where the most "Tarsome" eventuality that has to be contended with is having to run your own bath when your maid has been given the afternoon off. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frances Kuffel | 8/19/2013

    " My favorite of the Lucia books because she gets her comeuppance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mara | 7/18/2013

    " If it weren't for the ending, I would have given this book five stars. Lucia's adventures in London and her fall from power in Risehome were hilarious and kept me wanting to read more. Seeing Londoners reaction to Lucia's antics brought a whole new perspective to the books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty | 9/2/2012

    " Even better than "Queen Lucia." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 1/26/2012

    " The incredible thing about these books is the sustained hilarity--the cleverness and wittiness does not flag, for 200+ pages. It's amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/3/2012

    " A dash of Austen's cool social observation, with a helping of Wodehouse's Wooster stories...only far more malicious than either. So much fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gemma Williams | 9/10/2011

    " Another splendid book about the social climbing, deceitful, pretentious but magnificent Lucia, in this case living it up in London society post-inheritance. Magnificently good fun as ever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Kavanagh | 8/4/2011

    " One of my favourite Lucia stories. Hugely enjoyable. "
