In this charming follow-up to Miss Buncle's Book, readers will follow Barbara Buncle's journey into married life in a new town filled with fascinating neighbors...who may become the subjects of Barbara's next novel! Miss Buncle may have settled down, but she's already discovered that married life has done nothing to prevent her from getting into humorous mix-ups and hilarious hijinx. Readers will continue to fall in love with Barbara as she hilariously navigates an exciting new beginning.
Just as Barbara and Arthur are settling into their new home and married life, Arthur's nephew, Sam, comes to visit and finds more attractions in Wandlebury than just being the dutiful nephew. This is when the fun truly begins!
D.E. Stevenson is a master at creating small villages with a group of eclectic characters that the readers can't help but fall in love with. The author truly has an eye for quirkiness and humor that delighted me throughout the book. Her character development is excellent. This second in the series introduced some new characters that I hope to see more of in the next book, The Two Mrs. Abbotts.
Miss Buncle Married hit the spot with me and I really enjoyed my time with Barbara, her family and neighbors in the little English village of Wandlebury. 4.5****
I am so thankful to Sourcebooks for re-publishing these books that were originally published during the 1930's. D.E. Stevenson is an author I had never heard of before and would most likely not have crossed my "readar" if it weren't for Sourcebooks.
Disclosure: A review copy of the book was provided by Sourcebooks/Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
