Publisher's Summary

Fun change of plot for Mrs P novel

Love to brain chill with a Mrs. P novel every now and then. Its like eating a cream puff, nothing really there, but enjoyable anyway. This is different than the usual formula for Mrs P books and I enjoyed the change up, made me want to read the next.

Trouble comes home for Mrs Pollifax

After Emily takes Cyrus to the airport she returns home to find she isn't alone. Searching Mrs Pollifax finds her unexpected guest. A white van becomes suspicious in Emily's neighborhood. All this sets up a story Mrs Pollifax and visitor are running from their pursuers.

A call from an exhausted Mrs Pollifax brings the CIA to the rescue. Furthermore two crazy stories collide which sends Mrs Pollifax and crew to Africa.

Emily Pollifax has spunk, is creative, resourceful, and genuinely interested in catching the crook(s). I want to be an Emily Pollifax when I grow up.

Felt a bit like half a book

This is one of the thinnest, if not the thinnest, plots of any in this series. It feels far too short, as if one longer book got chopped in half and an ending was quickly added to the first half (this story) so it made sense. Disappointing, but I still love Mrs. P and Barbara Rosenblat.

La Rosenblat never fails to amaze

A thousand voices from one talented actress makes the beloved series come alive. The intrepid Mrs P is stalked on her own turf discovering a stowaway hidden in her pantry closet. Her danger draws mrs p into a delicious journey of narrow escapes, a stint in the traveling circus, and the thwarting international skullduggery. A treat indeed

Any additional comments?

The adventures of Mrs. Pollifax follow the tried and true storyline recipe after the initial introduction in the first book. While always a terrific listening experience, it is the narration of Barbara Rosenblat's talented use of foreign accents which helps to identify each charactors individuality.

beloved mrs. pollifax

I love these novels. they are suspenseful and at the same time amusing. who doesn't love the idea of an aging female finding the strength, sharp wit, intelligence and tenacity to outsmart the bad guys.

Different?

A new side of Mrs. Polifax, but she comes thru as only she does with cleverness , caring and surprising deliberation. Who would have thought to have Carstairs presence be so There when needed, and mesh so well with her thinking. Great read!

Listening and meditating at the same time

This story on its own brings great questions about "what would I do if...." A just-like-you-and-me ordinary woman meets with what might be the greatest shock for most of us: an intruder in the house while being at home alone. She goes after it, and meets great adventures, and knowledgeable people. The be-curious-follow-your-heart, trust-people-but-don't-forget-to-tether-your-camel theme is beautifully brought to life by the narrator. I have just listened this story for the umpteenth time, and layer upon layer is discovered again. In difficult times in life is listening to this voice telling you this story like an all night long meditation. Healing. It helps to rediscover your own strength. Try it for yourself if you need it. And if you don't need it: just go for the pleasure of listening to a friendly adventurous thriller.

Danger, excitement, interesting char, & happy end.

Loved Mrs Pollifax as usual, she really packs in the th kms, and excitement into her weeks! From her home, to the circus, to paris briefly, then to Africa, before flying home. She does like to travel far! As always a hint of danger, full cast of interesting characters, and a happy ending! My favorite kind of story.
