At the suggestion of their pal Duggey, who owns the local book shop, they decide to visit the City's new problem solver, Mrs D, who has just opened a cafe in the woods. But Mrs D is not at all what they expect....
Review: STRESS CITY is a novel which is made up of a lot of “parts”: part-satire, part-fantasy, part-mystery, etc. Everyone is Stress City knows way too much about everyone else. They’re all expected to behave in predictable ways, like Jack and Dundee who are the ‘village idiots’ so they’re always doing something idiotic. When the new City Problem Solver comes to town, everything changes. Stress City is not what it seems and there is more than meets the eye to some of its inhabitants. STRESS CITY is a fun, light novel with interesting and very diverse characters. There is definitely something for everyone to enjoy while reading STRESS CITY.
