Maureen Goes to Venice
on 1 March 2013
Maureen, a widow, is going to Venice but first she must buy a suitcase. This episode - where all but the newest shop assistant vanish as soon as Maureen appears sets the scene for a catastrophe prone few days. But Maureen isn't as terrible as you might think. She has a heart of gold and doesn't want to upset people but the trouble is things just seem to go wrong for her. Not that she isn't well able to rescue herself from her predicaments as this story shows.
I enjoyed this amusing story sufficiently to make me want to read the next one about Maureen - `A Letter for Maureen'. I think the author has created a memorable character and his writing is amusing and low key. He clearly has an affection for Maureen and doesn't try to get the laughs by ridiculing her. If you want an entertaining short read then try this.
