Service With a Smile (Blandings Castle, #9; Uncle Fred, #4)

By P.G. Wodehouse

Rating: 5 stars

In this visit to Blandings Castle, we find the Duke of Dunstable plotting to steal the Empress, a new and insufferable secretary and, to cap it all, the Church Lads’ Brigade are camped all over the lawns. It’s a lot for the Earl of Emsworth to cope with, but he doesn’t have to do it alone. That general do-gooder, and all round nice guy, the Earl of Ickenham, aka Uncle Fred, is ready and willing to provide service with a smile.

Light, fluffy, funny and a balm to the soul, reading a Wodehouse novel is always a joy, and this is no exception. While I’m not as familiar with Uncle Fred or the inmates of Blandings as I am with Jeeves and Wooster, I’ve read some (and watched the BBC TV series) and it’s always nice to get better acquainted with them.
