FAMILY PLEASURES - ANGLO-AMERICAN STYLE,
This review is from: Carnal Cousins: Watford USA (Paperback)
This is an enchanting narrative which details the adventures of a rather sexy policewoman, Greta on holiday from Watford in search of her American family in San Diego. She discovers her American relatives - and much, much else. She even manages to solve an old family murder into the bargain!
Her adventures are amusing and written in a delightfully casual style with great originality by Lynn Phillips who has the ability to make Greta's rediscovery of her family into a mystery on several different levels. Our heroine is a charming, naieve young woman who manages to have an enthralling time in San Diego - and, thanks to the author's disarmingly intimate style of first person narration, we are able to share in the mysteries, excitement and emotions which she encounters.
We get a narrative picture of America and Americans, their vicissitudes, portraits of the local people and the differences in their language and culture, to ours. An amusing story, lightly written but always intriguing!
