A year has passed, and in this third novel of the Pop Larkin series, Pop Larkin is preparing to build the bungalow he promised Charley and Mariette upon their engagement. He buys a country home slated for demolition, intending to convert it for the two, but it is not long before a London couple persuade him to sell it. Pop, ever the trickster, sells it for an extortionate price, as the two social climbers know little about country life. Party throwing and cocktail mixing abound until a rocky boat and a misplaced pair of hands have Pop before the local magistrate....

Best of the series, so far. Great use of metaphor! Character descriptions that even pale Dickens. I love the Larkins and so wish they really existed! I would seek them out. Such down to earth, life-loving folks they are. They truly know and hold love, happiness, contentment, and joy in their hearts.
the narration was wonderful, peaceful, fun, dramatic, loving, just like the
story. I would recommend this to all those who enjoy a living family story.
too tough to pick
brill, he was one of the originals from the tv series so perfect
