    Mrs. Virgil (Emily) Pollifax of New Brunswick, New Jersey, was a widow with grown children. She was tired of attending her Garden Club meetings. She wanted to do something good for her country. This first in the series sends Emily on her first case after she successfully persuades a skeptical CIA recruitment officer that she is the best person for the job.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this to several who really enjoyed it.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Love the unexpected way Mrs. Polifax becomes a spy, the humor, the danger is real but it is not grisly or rated R.


    Any additional comments?

    My daughter loved listening to Mrs. Polifax and immediately wanted the rest of them.

    Alanna of Trebond is no ordinary girl: her dream is to become a knight. So she disguises herself as a boy and begins training at the palace of King Roald. Alanna quickly finds out that the road to knighthood is not an easy one, but her skills and stubborness help her become friends with Prince Jonathan and his followers. At the same time, Alanna makes an enemy of the prince's uncle, the overly charming Duke Roger.

    Would you listen to Alanna, The First Adventure again? Why?

    Knights, magic, adventure, friendship, and all about a girl. Have reread many times and my daughter has listened multiple times.
