Dorothy Gilman ´ The Unexpected Mrs Pollifax Mobi

Dorothy Gilman ´ The Unexpected Mrs Pollifax Mobi Er country So naturally she became a CIA agent This time the assignment sounds as tasty as a taco A uick trip to Mexico City is on her agenda Unfortunately something goes wrong Delightful Emily Pollifax is an endearing and incomparable character and the very best thing about this bookseries so far I appreciate it too that I’m now in her age group and maybe it is a good thing that I waited until now to make her acuaintance She’s a hootSome of the other characters are wonderful as well I really enjoyed all the sections Home Mexico and the adventure that makes up a long section toward the end of the book and the endconclusion too Highly amusing Touching I found some of the politics what is now highly fictionalized historical fiction to be tedious but when Mrs Polifax explains democracy and how the legal court system works that is priceless Just marvelous I didn’t like most of the “Cold War” portions but the rest was incredibly entertaining and a perfect diversion so I forgave the anachronismsDefinitely a fun comfort read I would like to continue and read the other thirteen books in the series I’m also interested is seeing the two movies based on this character Due to COVID 19 I read a Kindle e book edition borrowed from my public library
