Places in Jane Shaw: Louella's Bookshop
Louella's bookshop in Wichwood is featured in No Trouble for Susan. When Louella comes down with mumps, Susan and the Carmichaels run the shop for her in the run up to Christmas. In real life, the shop is called Village Books and is located on Calton Avenue in Dulwich. In the story, the children often get coffee and sandwiches at the little tea room next door. There is indeed a tea room and patisserie three doors down to the left.
