Publisher's Summary

Taking the position of mayor in the town of Tilling brings much delight to Lucia. However, with her local rival Miss Mapp around, trouble is never far away. Lucia is elevated to her new position with Georgie Pilson as her sidekick, confidant, and escort. Lucia and Georgie renew their acquaintance with the opera diva Olga Braceley and the composer Cortese, but nobody in Tilling believes Lucia when she claims to have entertained a duchess.

Classic British Humor

For fans of P. G. Wodehouse. But why only the abridged version of this “Lucia” classic? All six volumes should be available unabridged. They are brilliantly funny as written and do not deserve to be cut. I feel ripped off settling for an abridged version. I paid a whole credit, and I want the whole book. I would have scored all fives if this was a complete book.

Not a bad abridged version, but where's the unabridged?

It's fine, but nowhere near the unabridged readings available for Miss Mapp and Queen Lucia. Oh, well. It gave me a dose of Tilling and that's better than nothing. We need a complete set of Mapp and Lucia unabridged, preferably read by Nadia May!

Great Book but why is it abridged????

Wonderful book from a wonderful series but sadly abridged and with a rather lack lustre reading from Miriam Margoyles.. sorry but not a patch on the complete reading done by Prunella Scales

Absolutely gutted. A thin copy of the original.

What disappointed you about Trouble for Lucia?

So much of the wit, humour and lightness of touch has been torn out during the clumsy abridgement.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really. I'll only buy unabridged versions from now on.
