Publisher's Summary

Jane Moneypenny is the perfect example of chic sophistication and unflappable poise. She handles her cohort of unruly 00 agents with good-humoured grace. Yet, behind her polished perfection, she exudes a certain aura of mystery. Indeed there is more to Miss Moneypenny than meets the eye. When she hears that her favourite agent James Bond's secret Cuban mission is jeopardised and his life in danger, she impulsively plunges into the glamorous, dangerous world of espionage to save his skin.

    "surprisingly good"

    Non-Ian Fleming Bond books are somewhat of a mixed bag, but I am a bit of a sucker for them. So it was with some doubt in my mind thatI bought the Moneypenny diaries trilogy in one of Audible's sales, but much to my surprise perhaps, thoroughly enjoyed them. Gripping, good storylines dovetailed into the original James Bond books, and well drawn, interesting and likeable characters. Narration is first class, really enhancing enjoyment of the books.

    Story
    "Quirky insight into a well-loved series"
    Where does Guardian Angel: The Moneypenny Diaries, Book 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A good choice and one I will probably listen to again. Worth the credit.


    What other book might you compare Guardian Angel: The Moneypenny Diaries, Book 1 to, and why?

    Not sure there is one. This was so different to the usual adventure or romance books, so it doesn't really fit any genre.


    What does Eleanor Bron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She brings emotion and the feeling that the ever-confident and slightly cold Moneypenny from the original books was human after all.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moments when Moneypenny realises she and her heart have been betrayed. Also the parts where it's obvious that she's really in love with Bond and he hasn't a clue.


    Any additional comments?

    Give it a go. A little hard to get into at the start, but keep going as the characters grow on you. A light and easy listen.

    I listen to a lot of books when cooking or washing dishes. It depends on my mood the kind of book I listen to

    "A good listen"

    Narration was very good.
    I enjoyed this book. I love the James Bond books and it was great to see Miss Moneypenny taking the star roll for a change. I was able to recognise the parts of the story in relationship to the Bond books. Will definitely be listening to more in the series
