Description:

Asked to accompany Mrs. Roosevelt on her Pacific Island tour, Agnes and Katherine travel by train to Washington, D.C. Agnes carries a package for Colonel Farthingworth to President Roosevelt.

Convinced the package contains secret war documents, Agnes expects Nazi spies to try and derail her mission.

She meets Irving, whose wife mysteriously disappears from the train; Nanny, the unfeeling caregiver to little Madeline; two soldiers bound for training as Tuskegee airmen; and Charles, the shell-shocked veteran, who lends an unexpected helping hand. Who will Agnes trust? Who is the Nazi spy?

When enemy forces make a final attempt to steal the package in Washington, D.C., Agnes must accept her own vulnerability as a warrior on the home front.

Can Agnes overcome multiple obstacles, deliver the package to the President, and still meet Mrs. Roosevelt’s plane before she leaves for the Pacific Islands?

Mrs. Odboddy: Undercover Courier is a hysterical frolic on a train across the United States during WWII, as Agnes embarks on this critical mission.

My Thoughts:

This book picks up not far from where the last one left off in this one Agnes gets asked to bring a package to the President Roosevelt when she goes on a Pacific Island Tour with her granddaughter.
The package is coming from her buddy Colonel Farthingworth.  But with Agnes anything is possible and usually backfires.  Katherine and Agnes meet alot of interesting people along the way.  Newlyweds fighting, a nanny delivering a child to her father a senator!  Two soldiers going to train to be fighter pilots and so much more!  With lots of ups and downs they manage to get to D.C with lots of adventures along the way!

I love going back to this era how people survived during the war.  In this one Agnes get sent to D.C with the package and learns how some people seem way to interested in this package.  I really enjoyed seeing what Agnes and Katherine and see what they are up to and dealing with.  I really think this is a great book for those who love mysteries that take place during wartimes.  Definitely keeps you laughing in some areas and following the adventure in others!  Can't wait to see what is next!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about my book and Mrs. Odboddy's Washington trip. Hope your readers will 'ride the rails' along with Agnes and see just what was going on in D.C. during the years of Eleanor Roosevelt and J. Edgar Hoover. Interesting things that many are unaware of. Just $3.99 at Amazon and the first chapter is available to read under the LOOK INSIDE feature.
