Miss Clutterbuck would like me to run the bar--no, it can't be that--run the car, which has seen its best days but is still useful for shopping. Grace has told her I am patient and tactful, so (as she herself is neither the one nor the other) she thinks I am the right person to look after the social side. With husband Tim stationed in Egypt and her children at boarding-school, Hester Christie--affectionately known as "Mrs. Tim" and based loosely on D.E. Stevenson herself--finds herself at loose ends, until her friend Grace takes her at her word and finds her a job with the formidable Erica Clutterbuck, who has opened a new hotel in the Scottish Borders. Once there, Hester's initial ambivalence disappears in a swirl of problems and situations with hotel guests and old friends alike, including serving as fortune teller at the local fète and aiding and abetting romantic schemes, not to mention the reappearance of the debonair Tony Morley. This volume, first published in 1947, is a sequel to Mrs. Tim Carries On and brings Hester into the immediate post-war years. Her exploits continue in Mrs. Tim Flies Home. All three titles are back in print for the first time in decades from Furrowed Middlebrow and Dean Street Press. This edition includes a new introduction by Alexander McCall Smith. "D.E. Stevenson brings back Mrs. Tim after some years' silence, and here she is the same charming, witty woman, a little older, a little wiser but just as busy as ever." Edinburgh Evening News "It is a delightful book, and long may Mrs Tim flourish!" Sunday Times… (més)

This is the third in the Mrs. Tim books and was published in 1947. The four very successful Mrs. Tim books grew out of the author's diaries from this period and reflect her experiences as an army wife. This one sees Hester on her own with her husband stationed in Egypt and her children at boarding school. Although the war has ended, times are still tight, with continued rationing. Deciding that she must keep busy and needed a place to live after her current lease expires, Hester decides to take a job helping to run an inn in the Scottish borderlands. Tocher House is a private estate owned by a single woman needing to take in guests in order to keep her home. Hester learns to adapt to the crotchety owner while observing the inn guests with her usual wit (and matchmaking skills).

I continue to enjoy the series for its comfortable, relaxing reads about a strong woman faced with ordinary, homey problems. I still can't understand her love for her husband, whom we rarely see or hear from, when she is obviously best friends with the inestimable Tony Morley. She writes so much more about Tony than Tim. I keep hoping that she and Tony will get together, but according to her biography, that is a vain hope. ( )

The war is over but Tim has not been sent home. Instead he's stationed in Egypt. Bryan is at boarding school & with Betty at school all day, Mrs. Tim is at loose ends. Then her landlord notifys her that he wants his house back early! Hester's friend, Grace, decides that what Hester needs is a job - one in Scotland helping crusty Miss Clutterback run her hotel.

As with Mrs. Tim Carries On, nothing much happens. But what does happen is so utterly charming that the reader wants the book to go on forever. ( )

Catches and lobs forward Hester Christie's narrative of her life, post-war, when she decides to take a job in Scotland as an assistant to a gruff hotelier. As charming as Mrs. Tim of the Regiment. ( )
