by Nancy Mitford
Here is the synopsis by Bas Bleu:
Nancy Mitford was one of the "Bright Young Things" on the London social scene in the 1920s. Mitford wrote Pigeon Pie in 1939 as conflict loomed but military action had yet to begin. It's a comic confection about the beautiful and spirited Lady Sophia Garfield, who stumbles upon a conspiracy of German agents.
This is the second time I've read Nancy Mitford and have become a fan! I was in the mood for something lighthearted. While the beginning of the book is somewhat slower paced than I prefer, it moved enough to keep me interested. I don't want to spoil the ending, so I'll just say I did not see THAT coming!
