REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
I’ve followed Maisie Dobbs from the beginning, and the series just keeps getting better. With each case she takes on, housemaid-turned-psychologist and investigator Maisie Dobbs finds herself examining her own past, and now, reconsidering her future. She is fallible and believable, and at times frustrating. I can’t imagine the research and consideration it takes to craft these novels and I look forward to the next installment.
While the Maisie Dobbs series can be read as standalone novels, don’t miss out on the beginning.
