message 1: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth [whispering] I can't seem to get into Maisie Dobbs. I've tried the first one three separate times now and can't get past the third chapter. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to stick it out and it will all come together? Or do I just love Precious Ramotswe too much?

melanie (lit*chick) Hmmm...maybe it's just not your jam. They are definitely slow to build. And I can't remember the first one now... I am not a Precious fan, despite a few attempts - and i want to like it (shhh, I won't tell if you don't). Do you like Dorothy Sayers mysteries or Mary Russell (the Laurie R. King series)? How about Flavia de Luce (Alan Bradley)? I would think Maddie is almost ready for Flavia...

Elizabeth I think I will try one more time next fall/winter and really stick it out for the first one, and decide then if I'm good or need to read more : ) I haven't read any of the others you mention though Flavia is my book club book this month... going to have to buy it though, as I've been on hold for it for too long. You will giggle, but Maddie did totally pick up Tiger Mother last night when it was on the table. She is hooked : )
