Save Our Shop by Michael Wilton

I found this book on NetGalley and because of good Goodreads ratings, I decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately, it was not something that I could enjoy.

My first foray into PG Wodehouse had been Jeeves( The first book was not completed as I mentioned in the earlier post about the past favourites.) but the next semi successful ownership was of school tales.
