What a wonderful and funny book!! I, like others, have found myself literally laughing out loud at the antics of Vickie & Joe as they acclimate to a tiny Spanish village. Talk about culture shock! At times they must have wondered if they were even still on the same planet as England. The villagers are described so well that I can close my eyes and almost see what they truly look like, smell like and (sometimes) what will impossibly happen next. Loved it!
While mildly entertaining, the plot of this book has a simplistic bent. The main character is whisked 200 years into the past by looking at a portrait? No explanation is ever given as to the how or why. What happened to the woman whose body she now inhabits? Too many loose ends.
