Another Aggie Underhill hit!!

In keeping with the same formula that makes these Aggie Underhill stories so good this one also has humor and mystery.
Aggie goes on a spy mission that involves Tom and takes Betty and Roger along for the ride. While Betty tries to settle a hilarious bet, an elf ends up in a pickle.
This book was fun, entertaining, and well narrated. I highly recommend this book and the rest of the series.

Another great cozy mystery!

Aggie Underhill is always getting herself into trouble and saving the day at the same time. Fun short story with likable characters and enjoyable mystery. The twist reveal is nice and again, there is so much history detailed with these characters in such a short time. Enjoyable.

The Narration was done quite nicely. The characters breathed. Great job.

GREAT SHORT READ!

I'm really loving the Aggie Underhill books. It was over quickly but did not lack in entertainment. The narration was great and kept you entertained. This author does a great job with her characters. Keep up the good work! I look forward to reading her other books. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Another Aggie tail - this one just as cute!

Aggie is always getting into some sort of trouble. This one is no different. The cast of adorable characters is very well voiced by Jean-Michel George who seems to know just what characterizations to give each of the quirky folks as the story unfolds. I loved it!

A beautiful misunderstanding

Leave it to Aggie and her hilarious friends to find a mystery where there was none but accidentally solve one in the meantime. This cozy little mystery made me laugh so hard I couldn't breathe with all the barbs that Roger gave to Aggie and Betty. This book may have been short but it was short on laughs, fun, and mischief. The book was well written and flowed perfectly. The narrator Jean-Michel George truly made the story come alive with his animated voice.

Aggie is at it again

When Aggie attends her best friend Betty’s birthday, she’s expecting an interesting evening and the company of her friend and her friend’s cousin. She is not expecting to see Tom. Tom who has made it clear to her that he would like more. Tom the police detective who always has a smile for her. Tom with a much younger companion…?

In a vain attempt to look younger and sexier, Aggie decides to dye her hair. The image of this in my mind was quite amusing – Ronald McDonald anyone? In the end, Aggie finds the courage to go Christmas shopping with Roger and Betty at the mall. And suddenly there’s a murder. Aggie just seems to always be in the wrong place at the wrong time. In the end, all is resolved.

I love these little shorts as they are well-executed and fun to listen to. Jean-Michel George narrated this story and it works because he uses a British accent and Aggie is a Brit through and through, despite living in California. Well done on this one.

Mystery of the Beautiful Old Friend

These three people are so funny. Even though they are older people, they act like they are in high school in this book. I can only hope I have this much fun when I am their age.
Even though I am not a fan of changing narrators mid series, I really enjoyed Jean-Michel George’s voice. He did voices beautifully, and I really enjoyed his enthusiasm with Roger.
