by Nancy Mitford
I’m a big fan of Nancy Mitford’s & this is the book of hers that I most wanted to read. I have owned Love in a Cold Climate & Don’t Tell Alfred for a while now, but I am glad I waited till I had the first in the series in my hot little hands.
It was worth the wait – I enjoyed this novel very much. There is a lot of Nancy & her family in this. so your enjoyment of this book may depend on how amusing you have found the Mitfords in various works about them.
I have just knocked half a star off – in part because there were a few lulls for me, but mainly because during some of the funniest lines in the book (view spoiler) Truly, the (brief) change in tone was a shock!
But I am looking forward to continuing the series.
