Summary

Aggie stumbles into a very prickly situation when determined to help her daughter with a personal problem. Not only is her daughter’s life in a state of upheaval, so is Aggie’s love life when she becomes a member of a worldwide popular online social site. With bleached blonde hair piled on top, Aggie’s ready to stumble into another desert adventure. 

Join Aggie in a quirky yet comical escapade where Betty’s practicing for her driver’s license, Roger’s in the middle of an interior decorator’s baby blue nightmare, and two bodies are discovered. Who knew the desert could be so much fun?

A Prickly Situation

I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.
This was my first book with Aggie Underhill and I really enjoyed listening to it.
Becky Brabham is a fine narrator although I did struggle with some of her character voices.
A well written book by Michelle Ann Hollstein and as I’m around Aggie’s age I just loved listening to what she got up to and how she felt.. like her gym experience lol..
All in all a great listen and I’d recommend this book from the Aggie Underhill series and look forward to listening to more of her adventures!

Fun

Cute cozy mystery with fun quirky characters that are comical and easy to like. It has everything you want in a cozy mystery as we follow Aggie's adventure into social media and murders.

I thought the narrator did a good job throughout the performance.

I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Aggies Humourous Exploits

With a cast of quirky characters a mystery is solved, social media joined, love life improved and new arrival announced. If that isn't enough there's some scrumptious recipes at the end. I loved the humour and interplay of characters. My only criticism was the over the top voice characterization which was a little distracting.

Truth is stranger than fiction

A Prickly Situation is one of the funniest books I have heard in a long time. Aggie get mixed up in not one but three mysteries. The comedic timing is impeccable. I love how the storyline flowed so effortlessly around the mysteries. I truly could picture this book being a movie because of how well it is written. The book is fast paced so hold on for the ride it is well worth it.
I received this audio book upon my request. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review because I really enjoyed this book and I am now such a huge fan of the author. Michelle Ann Hollstein just keeps impressing me with each book I read/listen to.

Aggie SAYS what we all THINK!

These stories are so fun and light hearted! In a world that's miserable these days...its so nice to have stories that are comical while approaching a serious problem. Aggie seems to attract trouble but usually figures it out..and usually through a comical adventure. I feel like it compares a bit to the Murder She Wrote TV show from years ago, except funny. I feel the same way Aggie feels about exercise...eek just shoot me! I relate so much to her. I am literally the one with chocolate sauce smeared all over my shirt.. except I probably sat in it and trying to explain THAT! Keep em coming.

Not for me

I did not care for this book, but it may be that it is because it is part of a series and this is the first one of the series that I’ve read. There were a lot of characters that I felt it was just assumed that you knew them and how they were intertwined. That being said, I also didn’t care for the characters all that much. I found their banter and discussions tedious and unnecessary for the story line. Though if you are reading the entire series it is likely builidng their character. It’s unfortunate because the main character, Aggie, has celiac disease, as do I. It is mentioned frequently in the book, but not enough to be annoying. There are also several gluten free recipes provided at the end of the book of items that Aggie mentioned or ate during the course of the story that I really appreciated.

I was provided with a free copy of this audiobook for my honest review. The views expressed here are entirely my own.

Very fun listen

This was a very fun book to listen to. The author has done a wonderful job of writing this book. This is the 6th book of the series and was another great addition to it. It has murder, mystery, suspense and a lot of humor.

I Love Aggie!!

Another Aggie Underhill cozy mystery! I just love Aggie. She always makes me chuckle and helps me to escape reality for a time. This is yet another entertaining episode in Aggie's world. The narration was off for me. Becky Brabham has a nice voice and read at a great pace. The problem I had was the voices didn't quite match the characters for me. There were times when Aggie's daughter sounded older than her mother. Anyway, I was able listen to all of the story but I think another narrator would have been better. Still, if you like the Aggie Underhill series then it's worth it to get this one!

Crazy Adventure

This was a fun book that was full of fun characters. It kept me laughing through the entire book. My favorite scene was at the Joshua park. When the GPS advised they were there and the car took a tumble over the cliff. I look forward to more in this series. I was gifted the book at my request in exchange for an honest review.
