  • Run & Adventure!

    Mrs Pollifax is easily described - she is a woman of substance never to be underestimated! Emily Pollifax, widow, has two grown up children and grandchildren who she keeps in touch with, but that doesn't fill her days. Even with all her clubs and volunteering, she longs for a bit of excitement in her life then she recalls her younger self's desire to be a spy. Now who better to approach to offer her services in that field than the C.I.A.? Confident in her abilities, she quickly finds herself with her very first assignment - straightforward with exacting instructions so nothing can go wrong - can it? There is a lot of fun in this mystery, but a fair bit of dangerous excitement too! I received my copy just as I was on my annual break and it fitted into my holiday reading perfectly. Mrs Pollifax is one gutsy woman who I really took a shine to. I'm thrilled that this is the first of many mysteries featuring her. Expertly created by the late Dorothy Gilman, this was a smashing read with a bit of fun mixed in with intrepid adventure. Smoothly written and fully enjoyable, I look forward to Mrs Pollifax popping up in my kindle again in future. If you like to immerse yourself in a good cosy mystery, then this is one for you. Please note that this is a new edition of an older book. Well worth the four stars I'm happy to give it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • American widow CIA spy-out-of-water romp

    Be swept back in time to the Cold War. Mrs Emily Pollifax is an unremarkable widow living an uneventful life, volunteering at the local hospital, garden club, book club etc. She's so bored that she almost, almost steps off the roof of her apartment building. Then a chance chat with her doctor reminds Mrs Pollifax that she once wanted to be a spy. Full of determination she walks into the CIA building and offers her services. Of course Mrs Pollifax is almost the exact opposite of a spy, but that what makes her perfect for a simple assignment in Mexico City. Of course little old ladies (laugh that a woman a decade older than me is deemed a little old lady) are famous for not doing the expected and soon Mrs Pollifax finds herself captured and kidnapped. If you like the sound of a book where a resourceful old lady outsmarts her kidnappers and rescues two fellow prisoners then I think you'll love this, I thought the 'twist' was obvious from the outset, but then I've seen a lot of spy films. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
