One thing that constantly disrupts the peace of life at Blandings is the constant incursion of impostors. Blandings has impostors like other houses have mice.
Now there are two of them – both intent on a dangerous enterprise. Lord Emsworth’s secretary, the efficient Baxter, is on the alert and determined to discover what is afoot – despite the distractions caused by the Honorable Freddie Threepwood’s hapless affair of the heart.
I’ve read several of Wodehouse’s Jeeves and Bertie books, but Something Fresh is the first of his Blandings Castle series I’ve picked up. It was funny and light-hearted and just a nice break.
You get the idea. Charming people, silly people, misunderstandings, romances, a couple of minor assaults, just a lot of fun. And everything works out fine in the end.
