She's back! When arch-snob Emmeline Lucas (known universally as Lucia) makes some money on the stockmarket, the wheels are set in motion for a new adventure - and this time, her ambitions are larger than ever. But eternal rival Elizabeth Mapp-Flint is determined to outshine Lucia and she's got royalty on her side. The much-loved Mapp and Lucia series takes a new turn as the two legendary protagonists travel to the continent to lock horns in an idyllic Italian setting. Can Mapp upstage Lucia on foreign soil so far from Tilling? What is Georgie's new valet up to? And will Lucia's financial speculation lead to rags or more riches? 'Lucia On Holiday' is a new addition to the Mapp and Lucia canon, based on the immortal characters first created by E.F. Benson. Perfect reading for followers of Benson's original novels and sure to be equally loved by new fans, this is a pitch-perfect and deliciously enjoyable social satire of an England long gone but not forgotten.

About the Author:

Guy Fraser-Sampson is a well-known best-selling non-fiction author, and a longstanding Mapp and Lucia fan. His first Tilling novel, Major Benjy, was published to much acclaim from Benson devotees, including Gyles Brandreth ("More Mapp and Lucia - what bliss! Major Benjy on the rampage - what joy!") and Tom Holt ("As you read Guy Fraser-Sampson's sinuous narrative and needle-sharp dialogue, Tilling suddenly takes shape all around you - Benson himself would have loved this book, and so will you").

Review:

Lucia is back! This is a wonderful new adventure for our magnificent heroine, written with all the style and humour of Benson himself. A triumph. Uno, due, tre ... read it! -Alexander McCall Smith; [Praise for 'Major Benjy' by Guy Fraser-Sampson] More Mapp and Lucia - what bliss! Major Benjy on the rampage - what joy! -Gyles Brandreth; [Praise for 'Major Benjy' by Guy Fraser-Sampson] As you read Guy Fraser-Sampson's sinuous narrative and needle-sharp dialogue, Tilling suddenly takes shape all around you ... Benson himself would have loved this book, and so will you. -Tom Holt; An agreeable romp, with at least one treat for the Benson aficionado --The Spectator; Brilliant, quite quite brilliantly wonderful...This is a simply delicious book and I loved every single word...I hope this sells in millions and trillions as it deserves to do so. -Random Jottings; Imbued with all the satire and wit of the originals, spiced up with titbits of real events, this well-written novel will amuse Benson fans and neophytes alike. -Sussex Life; What a delightful, funny, captivating read this book is from start to finish...A really good old fashioned and light-hearted story with endearing characters which will leave you with a smile on your face. -Kath Thornton, lovereading.co.uk; This book was a delight to read, capturing the mood and essence of the Benson originals...I think anyone who enjoyed the original books, or who likes P G Wodehouse, will have fun with this book. -Lindsey Whittle, lovereading.co.uk; I love and adore Major Benjy and (now) Lucia on Holiday by Guy F-S.The reason they are so delicious is that Guy 'gets' the voice of Benson so perfectly. I can honestly say that, while reading Lucia on Holiday, I kept forgetting that it wasn't Benson's pen which had written it - and what higher compliment could possibly be paid? --Stuck In A Book
