Goodreads Book Review – White Lies and Custard Creams by Susan Alison

White Lies and Custard CreamsWhite Lies and Custard Creams by Susan Alison

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I picked this book up when it was on special offer because I liked Susan Alison’s cards that she does for the RNA conference each year and was curious about her books.

I loved it! I’m struggling to think of how to describe it. The words ‘madcap’ and ‘caper’ spring to mind. I laughed so much I managed to snort by breakfast as one point.

The plot was convoluted and the twists were completely unexpected. Most of the time I had no idea what was going on, but then Liz, the protagonist was just as confused, so that was okay. I loved the way all of Liz’s friends, neighbours and lodgers all viewed the world through their own crazy-tinted glasses.

It’s not meant to be a deep and meaningful sexually charged read. It’s meant to be light and funny and a delightful escape from everyday life. A bit like The Ladykillers, but with a proper appreciation of biscuits. Brilliant.

I’ll have to buy the rest of the books.
