Patricia S. reviewed Mrs. Pollifax Pursued (Mrs. Pollifax #11) on
I like the plot twists and turns that Dorothy Gillman usually gives us. This book does not disappoint. Even though I was looking for twists, she still surprised me, and the real story was better and more plausible than any explanation that I was imagining.
Where ever in the world - literally- that Dorothy Gillman takes us, it is always plausible. The circus world is no different.
