(Previous book was Mrs. Odboddy, Hometown Patriot.)
The story is set during World War II. Agnes Odboddy, the heroine, is an elderly widow with an overactive imagination. An invitation to accompany the president’s wife, Eleanor Roosevelt on a goodwill trip is forefront in her mind until Colonel Farthing worth of the nearby Army base brings her to his office in a most unorthodox manner. He sends Mrs. Odboddy on a mission to deliver a package to President Roosevelt, not an easy task.
Before she even begins the trip, the enemy tries to discover and steal the package. Accompanied by her niece, Katherine, the two women begin their trip by railroad—a trip filled with danger. Mrs. Odboddy realizes she is being shadowed by a man—a man whom she suspects of being a spy and a murderer.
She and Katherine encounter others on their trip who may or may not be a threat to both of them. Mrs. Odboddy takes a harrowing detour, and when she and Katherine finally reach Washington D.C. they find they are still in danger.
This is a delightful and at times funny tale, filled with the problems civilians faced during the war years, plus the unusual and dangerous venture faced by Mrs. Odboddy. Despite her age, she manages to thwart her enemies even when under physical attack.
If you enjoy an occasional laugh while reading a thrilling tale, you’ll love Mrs. Odboddy, Undercover Courier.
Faber’s protagonist, Agnes Odboddy, may look like your average grandmother but she has a few tricks up her sleeve that might surprise you. She’s likable, realistic, and has a way with humor. The secondary characters are just as well developed and add depth to the story.
Faber brings the era to life through her vivid descriptions and eye for details. The story moves at a good pace and holds your attention until the end. The twists and turns as the story unfolds will keep you guessing.
MRS. ODBODDY UNDERCOVER COURIER is a zany read that will delight and entertain. Filled with mystery, suspense, humor, and history you’ll be captive by the adventure.
FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the author. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

The Geaha Incident
engrossing, and tender hearted at times. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will be looking for sequels, as well as other books by this author!
