Maisie Dobbs (Anniversary)
Maisie Dobbs (Anniversary) | Jacqueline Winspear
10th Anniversary Edition with a special Afterword by the author Maisie Dobbs got her start as a maid in an aristocratic London household when she was thirteen. Her employer, suffragette Lady Rowan Compton, soon became her patron, taking the remarkably bright youngster under her wing. Lady Rowan's friend, Maurice Blanche, often retained as an investigator by the European elite, recognized Maisie s intuitive gifts and helped her earn admission to the prestigious Girton College in Cambridge, where Maisie planned to complete her education. The outbreak of war changed everything. Maisie trained as a nurse, then left for France to serve at the Front, where she found and lost an important part of herself. Ten years after the Armistice, in the spring of 1929, Maisie sets out on her own as a private investigator, one who has learned that coincidences are meaningful, and truth elusive. Her very first case involves suspected infidelity but reveals something very different. In the aftermath of the Great War, a former officer has founded a working farm known as The Retreat, that acts as a convalescent refuge for ex-soldiers too shattered to resume normal life. When Fate brings Maisie a second case involving The Retreat, she must finally confront the ghost that has haunted her for over a decade."

This is the first book in a long series that people keep recommending to me. Maisie is a clever woman working as a detective of sorts after WWI. She and almost everyone she knows are still dealing with the trauma they experienced during the war. As she investigates a retreat for wounded soldiers her own heartbreaking past comes to light. Her relationship with her mentor added an interesting depth. A great introduction to a series I will continue!

I see why there‘s a 50/50 split on whether someone likes or dislikes this book. For me it‘s a big hell yes. It was like a cozy cup of tea under a blanket, sitting in front of the fireplace. It wasn‘t going to keep you on the edge of your seat but you‘re going to want to know what Maisie is thinking about….at least I did.

Gentle and pleasant enough read although a tad clunky. Unfortunately it‘s not really a detective novel. And major crime committed by the author in saying that the River Thames starts at Thame !

Audio. I was interested at the start, then sort of missed the going back in time (although it did say the year at the start and I sort of wasn‘t thinking, as I vaguely recall hearing the new date). From there to the end of the book, what I paid attention to was patchy. I was partly interested again for part of her time during the war. There were very few characters I remembered who they were when mentioned again later in the book. Cont in cmts.

LibraryCin I did like Simon and Maisie‘s relationship with her father, Frank. I got the idea that there was another mystery at the end of the book, but I really had no clue what was going on there – apparently (based on other reviews), there was a murder. Although it‘s considered a mystery, there is next to no time spent on a mystery in the book. Needless to say, I will not be continuing the series 10mo

Finished my March #Bookspin. This was a mixed read for me. I became really engrossed in the story and the setting, while I found the writing uneven and the plotting way too neat and tidy. Maybe I‘m just not a cozy mystery person. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Might‘ve been a pick if not for the final bit about Simon which really put me at odds with Maisie. Perhaps that‘s further developed in the series but on its own, not a satisfying end note. 21//2 ⭐️s

MsMelissa This series improves as you move along, imho, although I did enjoy this first book. I wouldn‘t describe it as a cozy mystery though, so if you don‘t think you like it because it was too cozy for you, definitely stay away from actual cozy mysteries 😂🤣😂 1y

This is the first book in the series and I am finally glad to have read it. I started in the middle of the series and went forwards. We find out about Maisie's childhood, how she met Maurice and the family. And I am also glad to have found about her first love Simon, as he is often mentioned! #books

I enjoyed listening to this #Audible #audiobook. Maisie‘s intelligence and powers of observation were highlighted, along with her experiences as a Red Cross nurse during WWI. The mystery is not the main focus, but it was interesting nonetheless. I would read another book in this series.

Autumn is in the air. I will miss all our hikes in the mountains. On to skiing! So glad I live close to such beauty.

MsMelissa The mystery in the first book is definitely the weakest, in my opinion, they get stronger as the series goes on. PS - I‘m quite envious of how close you live to the mountains. 2y

I didn‘t know much about this book before I picked it up. I assumed it would be a mystery with a fun main character and this seemed light on the mystery to me with most of the focus being on characters dealing with aftermath of WWI. I still really enjoyed the characters and will try to read more of the series now that the groundwork had been laid down.

I liked this book, especially the parts about Maisie's childhood and war experiences, but I'm not sure I know who Maisie really is. There seemed to be a distance between her character and the reader. I don't think that I will read the other books in that series.

Andrew65 I feel the series gets better as it progresses. 3y

As I said in a previous post, this was a re-read for me. I think I enjoyed it more this time around. I'm not sure if I will continue to read the rest of the series, as I've read the majority of them already, but I might consider it depending on what else I have in the offing on my TBR list. But, this book is definitely a thumbs up pick, especially if you like mysteries with a smart, savvy female detective as the protagonist. 👌 👍

I liked it, but it did not make me want to stay up late to finish. The main storyline with the mystery takes place in 1929, but there‘s a huge chunk in the middle with Maisie‘s backstory, her time as a nurse during WWI, and how she ultimately ended up solving mysteries. Love the characters, especially Maisie and her dad. I was surprised by how heavy the end of the story was and I still feel that heaviness, even though I finished last night.

Maisie is a detective who was also a nurse in WW1. This first book in the series explains how she became both. It had both suspenseful and heartwarming parts, and Maisie is a likeable character, but it didn‘t really pull my interest in until near the end. I liked how the mystery was resolved; it was a light but solid mystery, but I‘m not sure at this point that I will read more of the series.

Lots of mixed reviews on here but I loved this one. Nice to find a new series to get into. Maisie, who was a nurse during WWI, has a special intuition about people and uses it to conduct investigations and heal psyches. Her relationship with her father is beautiful and the her personal war time story brought me to tears.

It was okay.
A little too superficial, gumshoey, plucky heroine is calm in a crisis.
But happy to finally know what this series is all about. Probably won‘t be reading more, unless they get more interesting- any advice?

Lcsmcat They make good audiobooks for commuting - interesting enough to hold the attention but not so engrossing that you cause accidents. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3y

Overall, I found this predictable and, at times, boring. I mean, the parts about her in the war were interesting, but I really wish all that backstory was weaved in better instead of just dumped for several chapters. Also, I hate when mysteries have a whole chapter where the protagonist explains the how and why of everything.. makes me think the author thinks the reader is too dumb to figure it out themselves 🤷‍♀️

night_shift Also, found how easily it seemed Maisie got people to spill their guts unrealistic. And the singing.. guys, I listened to this and the person reading it sung and it was not good 😰 3y

I have a long story behind my expectations for this book/series (with which I will not bore you). Long story short, I shouldn't be surprised that I was a little disappointed. It's a stretch to call this a mystery. The time line is weird. The author has Maisie tilt her head to encourage companions to spill their guts to her way too often. These are the irritants just off the top of my (untilted) head. I didn't hate it, but I can't recommend it.

I picked up these two books from the library this morning. I read A Man Callef Ove last year, but I need to reread it for book club. I bought one of the Maisie Dobbs books at a book sale, but then I heard that you should read them in order, so I got the first one.

rretzler Maisie Dobbs is one of my favorite series. The first couple of books are a little different in tone than the rest of the series, so if you enjoy them right away, fantastic! But if you‘re on the fence for some reason, don‘t give up - the series is worth it. I have a couple of friends who felt that way, but kept reading and now love the series. Happy reading😀 3y
