A great way to spend a hour.

Aggie and Betty hop a plane for a girls weekend in Vegas, but before they can get the fun started an incident happens on the plane that sparks Aggie's inner detective to solve a crime. I like the mystery, humor and narration of these books. Aggie feels like a cross between Mama on Mama's Family and Angela Lansbury on Murder She Wrote. Never a dull moment with this quick witted character. I highly recommend this and all Aggie Underhill stories. I was given a free copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily decided to leave this review.

Aggie strikes again!

Another great addition to the Aggie Underhill Mystery series. This time, Aggie is on a plane with her friend, Betty, on the way to Las Vegas for some post-Christmas fun. As usual, our heroine becomes involved in a mystery and has to try to figure out whodunit.

The author does a great job with this short story and her dialogue and descriptions once again had me laughing. Aggie is the perfect nosey cozy mystery character and she always seems to be able to find out the truth. I love the descriptions of the people in this story and I could picture them in my mind as I listened to the story.

The narrator is just right for this story and really keeps the listener's interest. I was given the chance to listen to this book by the author and chose to review it.

Short but entertaining...:)

It's my first meeting with Aggie and I have to tell you she makes a very good first impression;)
The story is very short so there's not much room for character development but from those few short chapters I have a pretty good idea of what kind of person Aggie is and how her mind works... The plot is fairly simple - a murder on board a plane, with just a few clues to go on, but it develops smoothly and logically. There's also quite a bit of humour in the story - Aggie seems to have a healthy distance to herself:)

Narration by Ms Anders is very good, voices well done, and the interpretation of the book perfect.

I'll definitely look for more of AggieUnderhill:)

Adventure on a plane

All I Wanted was a Drink, An Aggie Underhill New Year's Day Short Story: An Aggie Underhill New Year's Day Short Story (An Aggie Underhill Mystery Book 11)
by Michelle Ann Hollstein

This is a very short czy mystery that was a fun listen. It is packed with great characters in zany situations aboard an airplane. I want to find more from this author.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Eliza Anders made this listen even more enjoyable.

An unexpected murder!

short-stories, cozy-mystery, humor, situational-humor, verbal-humor

The short story at its finest! Two very interesting ladies of a certain age are trapped in an airplane with an obnoxious salesman, a self righteous flight attendant, an embarrassingly amorous couple, and a murder! Well done, and with a fine sense of humor!
Eliza Anders gives the narration just the right touch.

Adventure on An Airplane

Packed into a short story is character development, a host of characters, and two women going on a short flight who are observant and see all aspects of humanity.
I laughed, giggled, commiserated and felt sympathy and pride with the two main characters.
The narrator did an excellent job and brought life to the story.
You won’t regret treating yourself to this book.

41 Minutes Of Listening Enjoyment

This is a fun listen, Something very well suited to listen to during a walk or a commute...The entire story takes place on a airplane flight. The story is so well crafted the plane becomes your entire mini-world...I honestly rate this audiobook AA++ for its enjoyability and its low retail price (what a great deal!)...I was given this audio without cost in exchange for a review-I enjoyed it and would have been happy to have bought it.

Short but Great!

Great short story! The author did a great job with this short story it wasn't too short sgu that left you with holes and it was long enough to finish the tale. The narrator did a fantastic job. You can hear the feelings in the characters coming through making them more human. I think most women can relate to the main character she her bladder. :)

Cozy Mystery!

This is the 11th Book in the Aggie Underhill Mystery series, but it stands alone. Aggie and Betty take a plane flight to Las Vegas. One of the passengers is found dead in the bathroom, was it natural causes or Murder!!!! A short fun read. Good story and characters. Very surprising ending! It is very nicely read by the narrator. This book was given to me free at my request and I have voluntarily left this review."

All I Wanted Was a Drink

Aggie is so detail oriented she notices things right of and can crack a case super fast. This is no exception. On a short plane ride someone is murdered and paying attention to things happening around her she solves the case before they land. I loved Eliza Anders narration of the 2 friends she did a fantastic job!

Pretty Good

This book was pretty well done but personally I would have wanted a little more action in it. It was a bit slow in places before it picked up again.

The narrator did a good job in depicting the different characters. Would listen to more by this narrator.

A Fun Listen

Having spent innumerable hours in aeroplanes I can picture the scene painted so well in this short story. Love the two old ladies and their interactions. A nice plot and pleasing conclusion.
