This is quite different from the Mrs. Pollifax series but a good suspense novel in its own right.

This book is good but not one of Gilman's best. I've read most of her books and love them. In this one a shy young girl finds a message and thus begins her dangerous adventure of discovery.
Good Read.

This mystery was full of suspense with some romance and a lot of character development thrown in. As usual Dorothy Gilman's books are hard to put down once you start reading them.
