Maisie Dobbs (Maisie Dobbs, #1)
It had been a long time since I had read a mystery story, and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. The writing was excellent, the characters were likable, and the mystery was engaging, if not particularly shocking. Maisie is a British woman living in London after World War I and is still haunted by the terrible things she saw as a nurse during the war. She is resourceful, brave, smart, and sensible. The gentle tone of the book and the Britishness of it reminded me a little of Rosamund Pilcher, with a mystery thrown in. I would definitely be interested in reading more of the Maisie Dobbs series, especially when I'm looking for a gentle, engaging read - like my 14-hour plane ride back to the U.S.!
