Maisie Dobbs

I found myself putting off reading Maisie Dobbs, but not because the book wasn't good. I didn't want the book to end. Jacqueline Winspear has created a truly captivating character in Maisie. The book is in theory a mystery, but it wasn't why I wanted to read it. The characters just pull you in.

The book is set in England after the First World War. Maisie has set herself up as an investigator. Her first case is to see if a wife is having an affair. In learning the wife's real secret, Maisie's past and the case become intertwined. The book is just magically.
