This is my least favorite Maisie Dobbs book so far. The mystery isn‘t that compelling; instead we get a lot of information about Maisie‘s personal life. The solution to the less-than-compelling mystery feels both rushed and unfinished. Still, any Maisie Dobbs book, even when it‘s only adequate, is better than tons of other mysteries out there, so this is still a pick — just on the lower end of the scale.
Another solid addition to the Maisie Dobbs series. This one focuses on the media in England in the early months after Hitler rose to power in Germany and how some people with classified knowledge began to take steps to prepare for what they believed to be a coming war. What is the media‘s role in molding public opinion? Does preparing for war make war inevitable? These are questions Maisie grapples with as she investigates 3 inter-related murders.
Read this earlier this year but never did write a review. This was another great book in the Maisie Dobbs Series, but yet to find one in the series I didn‘t love. This one was good one for learning a bit more about Maisie‘s early life. Things don‘t seem good in her personal relationship though. If you can‘t tell 😂 I fully recommend this series.
More Hoopla over Hoopla! I'm hooked on this series, but Hoopla doesn't have books 9 & 10!!! How do you have all the rest and not these??? Sigh...
Book # 9 in the Maisie Dobbs series. This mystery came quite close to home for Maisie. A member of the community she grew up in has been murdered but his murder leads her to discovering a whole underground world she‘s not quite ready for. You can definitely feel how the whole British community is really taking notice to the new German Chancellor...Hitler. These books never disappoint, can‘t wait for the next book!

Tea. Tea and walking and gardening and thinking. These books- I still can't believe the relevance. Going back to the 30s is staggering.
Ah, Maisie Dobbs time again. I find this series so satisfying and the audiobooks are very well done. There is something wonderful about a female detective- smart, independent and living a riskier life that I can enjoy from the comfort of my couch. I especially like the introspection of her character, the backdrop of the war, and her independence and stubbornness in refusing to settle for a man who would take her off her path. She's great.
