The inhabitants of Tilling and their affairs become as fascinating for us as they are for Miss Mapp. However, it is Miss Mapp herself who provides the greatest entertainment as her scheming leads to one embarrassing incident after another.
This is the third novel in the series and paves the way for the meeting between Lucia Pillson and Miss Mapp in "Mapp and Lucia". These novels are gentle and enormously enjoyable. This book provides some of the most delicious comedy in the series, lifting the spirits with each reading.
Although Miss Mapp and Lucia are the same type of character engaged in the same type of activity in the same type of setting, Benson manages to make them impressively different. While Lucia is Riseholme's undisputed ruler in spite of her flaws, Miss Mapp is on a much more even footing with the residents of Tilling. Consequently, her scheming is more agressive and less good-natured because she has further to go to get ahead of people. She reminds me more of Daisy than she does Lucia. The way Benson ties together her physical appearance and her character is very well done, particularly the way he skirts round using the word `fat': "In spite of her malignant curiosity and her cancerous suspicions about all her friends, in spite, too, of her restless activities, Miss Mapp was not, as might have been expected, a lady of lean and emaciated appearance.
