Pollifax Four The garden was bright with sun and flowers ping that she wouldn’t fall asleep. Just to be certain of this she climbed out of the chaise and attempted to elevate it to a sitting position. You’re pushing all the wrong things, said a voice behind her, and a young woman in a bikini, body glistening with sun oil, put down her towel and books and leaned over the chair. It sprang back and up immediately.

A Palm for Mrs. Pollifax book.

She is best known for the Mrs. Pollifax series

She is best known for the Mrs. Pollifax series. Begun in a time when women in mystery meant Agatha Christie's Miss Marple and international espionage meant young government men like James Bond and the spies of John Le Carre and Graham Greene, Emily Pollifax, her heroine, became a spy in her 60s and is very likely the only spy in literature to belong simultaneously to the CIA and the local garden club.

Pollifax gives Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple a rival to reckon with.

A Palm for Mrs Pollifax, Mrs Pollifax on Safari, Mrs Pollifax on the China Station. I have recently become a fan of the Mrs. Pollifax book series after I saw "The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax" on TV. It has been giving me so much delight that it is all I read anymore. I think that every one should read this series especialy "A Palm for Mrs. Pollifax".

Dorothy Gilman (1923–2012) was the author of 14 Mrs. Pollifax novels, including The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax, the series debut; Mrs. Pollifax Pursued; Mrs. Pollifax and . Pollifax Mrs. Pollifax (Том 4). Pollifax and the Lion Killer; Mrs. Pollifax, Innocent Tourist; and Mrs. Pollifax Unveiled. She was also the author of many other novels, among them Thale’s Folly.

"Mrs. Pollifax gives Agatha Christie's Miss Marple a rival to reckon with."TORONTO STARA secret agent like no other, Mrs. Pollifax was leading a very full life: Garden Club, karate, yoga--and a little spying now and then. This time the mysterious Mr. Carstairs sent her to Switzerland--to a famous health resort where the world's intelligence agents had gathered. Her mission: to track down a missing package of plutonium--just enough to make a small atomic bomb. It was a job that suited Mrs. Pollifax's talents. She's good with people and even better at sniffing out their secrets. But it was not until she became enchanted with Robin, the young jewel thief, that her new adventure really began....

I'm a big fan of Mrs. Pollifax and continue to be more so as I get older myself. She's full of surprises and ingenuity. The story is good and not predictable. I like that she isn't glib or a superhero by movie standards. She has good sense, imagination and credibility. She's believable as whoever she is supposed to be while on the job. I love that she still raises begonias for her gardening club and wears silly hats. This story shows how someone you'd never suspect could have an international influence with world changing consequences. She reminds me a bit of Miss Marple. I own all the hardbound books and am currently downloading them onto my Kindle to reread about my old friend Mrs. Pollifax and her adventures as a spy.

I love the Mrs. Pollifax series. I read the books many years ago and now I am building my Kindle library.
Picture this, an older woman who is now a widow, has raised her kids, volunteers for everything but wants more. When she was younger she had always wanted to be a spy. Well, she has the time now and she goes to the CIA and volunteers her help. She is asked to do a job but it was a case of mistaken identity because Carstairs thought she was someone else.
Trouble seems to find her time and time again. The great thing is she always gets herself and others that are attracted to her out of trouble.
When these books were written there were no cell phones, fax machines, and computers but the stories always gets the point across and are entertaining! If not this one try one of the others.

This review is for the Kindle version.

I'm reading through this wonderful series, and was missing a paper version of this particular book, and was happy to find it in Kindle. Only it appears this was scanned in and not carefully read, in that it contains numerous errors consistent with incorrect character recognition: missing punctuation and similar looking words. (Things like a "chaise TONGUE" instead of a "chaise LOUNGE" and a reference to a "desk WHORE Hafez had been sitting") Some I was able to figure out. Others I still don't understand. Especially: "Really, I can't Gabrielle a nun?"

I was very happy to find this series available in ebooks, but wasn't there at least a good intern available to go through them? I'm now hesitant to buy more.

I like the Mrs. Pollifax books for their clean exciting reading. They can be recommended for young teens and adults when you want to avoid the garbage of the day so often found in the books intended for teens and young adults.

Drothy Gilman created a winner in Emily Polifax. No one would suspect the hidden depths that lurk beneath her floral hats. She continues to confound the professionals with her resourcefulness, adaptability and insight into the human heart. This series is delightful!

I love the Mrs. Pollifax books. She is such an unexpected heroine. She gets herself into such unexpected difficulties and then proceeds to unravel the distress. I never did figure out the significance of the title, "Palm."

For years I followed Mrs. Pollifax and her adventures, but got away from them for awhile. I'm so glad I've found them again! She is just as feisty and daring as ever. This book will keep you on the edge of your chair. A must read.
Like all Pollifax stories this is intriguing, The heroine always finds a couple people to mentor and encourage, so the books are uplifting. The writing style uses good prose and clever dialogue. This is not your normal pulp fiction!
