Have you read Miss Buncle's Book by DE Stevenson and its sequels?
I was going through the Persephone Books catalog and looking for something lighthearted to read to follow up Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day. Among the books I spotted was Miss Buncle's Book by DE Stevenson, which seems to be a lighthearted comedy (about a spinster who writes a novel based on the inhabitants of the small village where she lives). There are two sequels: Miss Buncle Married and the Two Mrs Abbotts. If you have read any of them (but especially the first), can you recommend them?
