Book Review of Birds of a Feather (Maisie Dobbs, Bk 2)

Birds of a Feather (Maisie Dobbs, Bk 2)
reviewed on + 4 more book reviews

This is the second mystery in the Maisie Dobbs series and I thoroughly enjoyed it. These books are set in England between the two world wars, and Winspear sketches in nice details of the time and the setting. Maisie Dobbs (private investigator and "psychologist") is a great character, having grown up working class, served as a nurse during WWI, and moving now in upper class circles. She uses meditation and centering to help her solve her cases, which is a neat idea.
