I’m not much of a reader, only tend to read when on holiday or when time permits and have never written a book review before … so where to start!
I was looking for a light fictional book that was an easy read for a recent short break and decided to delve into The Undercover Policeman series by Mr Ted Bunn.
The story is of a young police officer called to investigate a crime at a naturist resort in England … little did he know that this would be a life changing experience. The setting portrayed is of a naturist club amass with friendly naturists of various social standings whose balance is upset by petty crime. A beautiful romance blossoms and PC Adiscombe finds himself effortlessly entering the wonderful world of naturism at the same time as discovering the love of his life.
As a naturist on a journey into social nudity I enjoyed this lighthearted storyline and found myself easily transported into the setting of the Eden Gardens Naturist Resort. A very nice short book, easy to read and although fictional, this book is written by a naturist and offers a little insight into naturism and social nudity.
