    If I had to put a label on Jacqueline Winspear’s ‘Maisie Dobbs’ stories, I would probably call them police procedures, or whatever you call those stories where every book is concerned with the methods the protagonist uses to solve mysteries.

    I have an interesting relationship with the series. It is the only one from the author that I’ve read thus far. I wasn’t sure if I liked it at first. Maisie Dobbs was too perfect: an intelligent, attractive, kind woman that could do no wrong.

    I also hated the historical component because Winspear went into too much detail. But that historical detail pushed me to read the second book in the series and every novel that came after.

    I enjoy learning about England in the early 1900s. I know so little about the period that every insignificant detail intrigues me. I also like Maisie Dobbs. I think I read so many bleak historical novels set during the WWI era that uplifting stories in that period like the ones Winspear writes felt out of place to me. Once I adjusted my expectations, I grew to appreciate the author’s work.

    One of my friends recommended the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear, but I didn’t take any immediate action and kept postponing. Now I’ve come to know what I was missing all this time. The characters feel like real people, and the storyline was so unique.
    The humor was so brilliant and even though this was not a comedy, there were so many laughing and amusing lines that kept me at the edge of my seat.
    I’m always a big fan of novels with the fascinating main character, and Winspear serves that right. It’s inspiring how Maisie rose from being a young house servant to having a successful job as a private investigator in World War I.
    Winspear’s books are one of those that will keep you late in the night as you flip pages to know what happens next

    I have really enjoyed the Maisie Dobbs’ books not only because of the mystery involved in each story, but because of the historical context. Coming on the heels of World War I, I find that I am learning a lot about an era I am unfamiliar with and enjoying every minute of it!

    Excellent series, it was recommended to me by our golf professional, I was sceptical about reading the first volume, but then I was hooked, now I look forward to the next release. I spent a lot of time in Kent, with the Royal Navy, my eldest daughter was born in Chatham, sadly she crossed the bar sometime ago, but Kent remains a county of memories
