Book Review: The Maisie Dobbs Series By Jacqueline Winspear

My book review

The Maisie Dobbs Series

One of the main reasons that I wanted to start recording the books that I read, and talking about them on this platform is so that I could record details about the reading.

For example this series of Maisie Dobbs books, I really wish I could remember how I came about them. I think I had started reading some Agatha Christie novels and had been searching for recommendations for similar genres and writing styles. And up popped Jacqueline Winspear. But I would love to be able to give credit to who recommended them. Alas my memory fails me.

Maisie Dobbs Series by Jacqueline Winspear

The Maisie Dobbs novels are my comfort blanket, I have slowly been making my way through the series, I read the first and second books in the series back in December 2018 and I review the third book Pardonable Lies in my January Book Life Post. Book 4, Messanger of Truth I read in March and I review it here and in June I made it to book 5 An Incomplete Revenge.

I love history books and detective novels so these books are the perfect mix of both, sprinkles of real life events and fictional mysteries to solve.

They are well written and engaging with a lead character who I love. Each book follows a different case, or sometimes a few cases. There can be a dash of slightly unrealistic coincidence but it all manages to mesh into the story. They are all set in the aftermatch of World War I, which I would go so far as to say is the second main character in all the books. Our heroine and her assistant both suffer from the after effects of the war and it plays a large part in the cases also.

I’ve come to the conclusion that liking a person we are required to have dealings with is not of paramount importance. But respect is crucial, on both sides, as is tolerance, and a depth of understanding of those influences that sculpt a character

So far I have read

Book 1 – Maisie Dobbs

Book 2 – Birds of a Feather

Book 3 – Pardonable Lies

Book 4 – Messenger of Truth

Book 5 – An Incomplete Revenge
