It's an amusing book and I enjoyed the flow as the story unfurled. I think it lacked some of the depth that made 'A Letter from Maureen' stand out for me. In some ways this felt a little rushed, especially the end.
That being said, it is a cracking read and it's always nice to see how a character develops. The setting is well written and I did feel as if I had visited Venice reading the story, which is impressive. The author also has a real talent for the human comedy and this is most definetly a fun read.
As she is fictional though, it should be safe enough for you to encounter her from behind your Kindle.
Maureen had a disastrous trip to a modern art exhibition in ‘ECLECTIC: Ten Very Different Tales’. Well, now she’s back in her own feature-length adventure!
The book will give you plenty of laughs and a taste of Italy, so join hapless Maureen on her Venetian break and just be glad you’re not there with her!
A comic short story of ~13,500 words.
