Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves : (Jeeves & Wooster) Paperback
Part of the Jeeves & Wooster series
This is a "Jeeves and Wooster" novel. Bertie Wooster looks pretty stylish in his new Tyrolean hat - or so he thinks: others, notably Jeeves, disagree.
But when Bertie embarks on an errand of mercy to Totleigh Towers, things get quickly out of control and he's going to need all the help Jeeves can provide.
There are good eggs present, such as Gussie Fink-Nottle and the Rev. 'Stinker' Pinker. But there also is Sir Watkyn Bassett J.P., enemy of all the Woosters hold dear, to say nothing of his daughter Madeline and Roderick Spode, now raised to the peerage. And Major Brabazon Plank, the peppery explorer, who wants to lay Bertie out cold.
Thank goodness for the intervention of Chief Inspector Witherspoon of Scotland Yard - but is this gentleman all he seems?

Review by bragan
This is a Jeeves & Wooster novel. It's got all the things you usually find in a Jeeves & Wooster novel: ridiculous situations, complicated romantic entanglements, a hilariously hapless Bertie finding himself in various troublesome situations and an unflappable Jeeves sweeping in repeatedly to save the day. Really, all of these are similar enough that after you've read a few of them, they start to take on a slight feeling of déjà vu. But absolutely none of that matters. What matters is that when I picked this book up, I was feeling grumpy and unwell, and by the time I'd finished reading the first sentence, I was grinning from ear to ear. Such is the marvelous magic of Wodehouse.
