Elegy for Eddie
Elegy for Eddie: A Maisie Dobbs Novel | Jacqueline Winspear
15 posts | 27 read | 11 to read
In this latest entry in Jacqueline Winspear’s acclaimed, bestselling mystery series—“less whodunits than why-dunits, more P.D. James than Agatha Christie” (USA Today)—Maisie Dobbs takes on her most personal case yet, a twisting investigation into the brutal killing of a street peddler that will take her from the working-class neighborhoods of her childhood into London’s highest circles of power. Perfect for fans of A Lesson in Secrets, The Mapping of Love and Death, or other Maisie Dobbs mysteries—and an ideal place for new readers to enter the series—Elegy for Eddie is an incomparable work of intrigue and ingenuity, full of intimate descriptions and beautifully painted scenes from between the World Wars, from one of the most highly acclaimed masters of mystery, Jacqueline Winspear.

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.

Reviewsbylola I‘ve always been curious about this series so I‘m glad to see your endorsement! 9mo
Andrew65 @Reviewsbylola I love them, as does my wife and @Lmstraubie 9mo
minkyb @Reviewsbylola I endorse this series too! 9mo

Lmstraubie @Reviewsbylola Thanks to @andrew65 's recommendation I binged the whole series and then regretted it because now I miss the characters soooo much! I'm looking forward to the next book. I love the mix of historical fiction and mystery. 9mo
Andrew65 @Lmstraubie That‘s the problem with great series, so many series I am Impatiently waiting for the next book! I still have 4 Maisie books to go. 9mo
Lmstraubie @Andrew65 Take your time 😉 I have to look to see when the next one is due to be out. 9mo
Andrew65 @Lmstraubie March in the U.K., looks like the last few have all been published in March. 9mo
Lmstraubie @andrew65 Good to know, I'll have to check for the US release, although it could be as much as a year later 😣 9mo
Andrew65 @Lmstraubie That‘s not good! 🤬 9mo
Reviewsbylola Which title is the first book? @andrew65 @Lmstraubie 9mo
Lmstraubie @Reviewsbylola This is one series that probably should be read in order because it progresses through Maisie's life. I accidentally read one out of order and there were some things that didn't make sense until I went back. @andrew65 Would you agree? 9mo
Andrew65 @Lmstraubie Yes there are some series that it doesn‘t really matter, but this one is so character driven that I feel you do need to read them in order to get the most out of them. @Reviewsbylola 9mo
Reviewsbylola Yes I am pretty rigid when it comes to reading series in order! @Lmstraubie @andrew65 9mo

theresidentromantic Hoopla...? 13mo
Lmstraubie @theresidentromantic It's an app through my library that offers free audiobooks, e-books, movies and such. It is my go-to resource for audiobooks 🙂 13mo

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!

SheReadsAndWrites I‘m beyond excited to find out there are so many books in this series! 😃 I‘m reading book 2 right now. 1y
SassyBookworm @shereadsandwrites Yes book #13 is coming out at the end of March! I already have it on hold for me on the #Libby app! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! Also, if you love Maisie Dobbs check out the Maggie Hope series by Susan Elia MacNeal! I love that series too!! (edited) 1y

Tea. Tea and walking and gardening and thinking. These books- I still can't believe the relevance. Going back to the 30s is staggering.

LyndseyReads Right?? God, I love them. 2y
Kimlayman7 I love this series! 2y

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.
