Save Our Shop (S.O.S.) by Michael N Wilton is a whimsical read that is meant to be savored and enjoyed. A local shop struggles to stay afloat, though it has always been the owner’s dream to be his own boss. Albert calls on his nephew, William, to help manage the shop. The plot is simple and the characters are entertaining as they go from one dramatic event to another. William is infatuated with Sally but is also partial to Veronica’s attentions at the start which causes no end of strife. Their schemes to attract more business are humorous and comical. Their endeavors bring people into their lives that make things even more interesting.

British author Michael N Wilton gives an insight into small shop owners and their unique challenges. There probably isn’t a store owner who faces the opposition that Albert does when he allows others to help him with his store. Save Our Shop (S.O.S.) quickly goes from one crisis to another as the main characters try to set things straight, but who prepares for sick cows, robberies, or an offended love? I enjoyed the quirky characters and their distinct personalities, giving this novel a captivating tale of a business drama. Let’s not forget that William is still trying to get his love back, though it seems impossible to shake off Veronica’s attentions and prove to Sally that she is the one for him. Clive making advances towards Sally creates even more confusion. Overall, humorous and fascinating with an interesting current among the characters.
