Can't believe people like this series. It is so poorly written, depressing and child-unfriendly it rates right up there with the "Goosebump" series. Total waste of a good tree!

Was a big fan of "The Cat Who" books. This one disappointed me. Very slow and boring-kept waiting for something to happen. The older "Cat Who" books were MUCH better.

Second in Three Sisters Island Trilogy. You need to read the first in the trilogy to know what's going on and you will want to have the third book of the trilogy handy so you can keep reading! Another awesome trilogy from Nora Roberts.

In her the first Mrs. Pollifax book, Mrs. Pollifax is a mature older woman who was bored with life so she walked in to the CIA and asked for a job as a spy/secret agent! She had no idea what she was getting herself in to--but she is having a great time. I have loved all of the Mrs. Pollifax books and this one is no exception--another great adventure.
