Mrs. Pollifax Unveiled

Mrs. Pollifax Unveiled - Dorothy Gilman Ouch. Read this once, and firmly determined to put it out of my memory and focus on the earlier, stronger books. Very much a faded carbon copy of the sparkle and charm of earlier books, with all the ongoing flaws brought strongly into the light accordingly. Do yourself a favor, and reread The Unexpected Mrs Pollifax instead.
