Review: I read these Maisie Dobbs books because they came so highly recommended by a friend. I liked these first six enough to purchase more of the series, and there are 15 so far. My friend knew that I like to read a series in which a central character grows over time, and I have a collection of the entire set of at least a dozen such characters (Cadfael, Amelia Peabody, Mrs Pollifax, Joe Leaphorn & Jim Chee to name but a few). The author, Jacqueline Winspear, is writing from family experiences during World War I and its aftermath, but she has also diligently researched tiny details that quite took my breath away when I read them. The downside of this series, for me, is that it is too full of sadness and not enough lightness. Maisie is such an earnest character that she wears on me a bit. Let’s face it, in darkest times many people keep their sanity by laughing, and while I don’t expect that side of life to be overdone, I would like to know that Maisie smiles just once in awhile. Still, I recommend this series and am glad I was introduced to it.

    Description: A favorite mystery series of Hillary Clinton (as mentioned in What Happened, The New York Times Book Review, and New York Magazine)A New York Times Notable Book of the Year Agatha Award Winner for Best First Novel Macavity Award Winner for Best First Novel Alex Award Winner Fiercely independent Maisie Dobbs has recently set herself up as a private detective. Such a move may not seem especially startling. But this is 1929, and Maisie is exceptional in many ways. Having started as a maid to the London aristocracy, studied her way to Cambridge and served as a nurse in the Great War, Maisie has wisdom, experience and understanding beyond her years. Little does she realise the extent to which this strength of character is soon to be tested. For her first case forces her to uncover secrets long buried, and to confront ghosts from her own past.' In Maisie Dobbs, Jacqueline Winspear has given us a real gift' Alexander Mc Call Smith.

    Description: London, 1931. Nick Bassington-Hope, veteran of the Great War and controversial artist, is suddenly found dead. His death from a fall, the night before a much-anticipated exhibition of his work, is recorded as 'accidental'. But his sister is not convinced. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Georgina Bassington-Hope believes her brother was murdered, and she turns to Maisie Dobbs for help. Maisie's investigation takes her from the desolate beaches of Kent to the dark underbelly of London's art world. Still fragile after her war-related breakdown, Maisie's immersion in her work could lead her to lose more than she bargained for, while a desperate family with strong ties to her heart urgently needs her help.'A new Maisie Dobbs mystery is always a cause for celebration. Messenger of Truth is fiendishly entertaining' Time Out.
