And so, for a holiday edition of Book Beginning and Friday 56, I present Mrs. Pollifax Unveiled by Dorothy Gilman.
It would have been cool if this book involved vets in some way, but I didn't think about that in time to plan my reading. Instead, this is the final book in one of my favorite series, and I just reread it. My review will be up soon right here if you are interesting in learning more about it.
But for now, here's how the book begins:
Mrs. Pollifax was feeling bored and rather left out of life.
That's not an unusual way for a book in this series to begin. But it also brings a smile to my face since I know that is about to change. It's usually about the time that Carstairs from the CIA calls and offers this part time spy a job. And this book is no different. (And yes, I did steal my user name from this series.)
And where a job for the CIA goes, trouble always follows. For example, on page 56, we find this:
Suddenly, Mrs. Pollifax said, "Farrell, no...!"
It was too late.
And that's the tease for this week. Have a great weekend, and if you have a long weekend, have a great long weekend.
