Mrs. Pollifax on the China Station (1985)

Following Mrs. Pollifax through her adventures around the world takes me to China in this book #6. I like her. Dorothy Gilman has created a character that I'd like to know as a real person. There are several things that appeal to me about this series - the wide-eyed interest in people and cult...

The Amazing Mrs. Pollifax (1985)

It was a pity this book was such a let-down after the first well-written and really cute novel. It wasn't terrible, but it had a couple of problems:Too Many CoincidencesObviously, a reader's going to need suspended disbelief to continue reading some of these books. In the first book, it wasn't ...

A Palm for Mrs Pollifax (1992)

Mrs. Pollifax's fourth adventure takes her somewhere new (well, if you don't count her brief stop there at the end of the last book, but that was after the action was over) - Switzerland.

The Elusive Mrs. Pollifax (1987)

I have not read other books in this series and chose this one because it took place in Bulgaria, and I had recently traveled there. It mentioned a very few places and things I had seen, but did not bring back a lot of "been there" memories. The time is the communist era. Mrs. Pollifax is an Aga...

In her latest adventure, Mrs. P heads back to the Middle East—destination: Syria, this time. A very mysterious set of circumstances surrounds a plane hijacking that was averted from danger by a young American girl who walked up to a hijacker and asked for his gun, which was instrumental in freein...

The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax (1983)

This is one of my favorite books, probably because I first read it at a young and impressionable age. I don't mean that it's a bad book that I only love because I was too dumb to know otherwise; it's just that adolescence is so intense that it allows these lasting and powerful impressions. It's b...
