    This series is like a comforting bowl of porridge for me. I like the historical details, and it's been interesting finding out little things about how England came out of the First World War in the first book in this series, all the way to this book, with England entering the Second Wo...

    It's okay, but not up to her other books which were solid 5-stars. I know I'm in the minority here, which is okay, but I personally found the story line rather boring and tedious. In the past I could read her books in a day or two. I found myself putting this book aside often. The wrap...

    I lose my train of thought if I so much as hear a dog bark outside - but in this book, the redoubtable Maisie Dobbs can listen to her country declaring war on Nazi Germany and still have the pluck and concentration to solve a couple of initially baffling murders! Here's my review over ...

    This is the latest in a steady stream of more than a dozen Maisie Dobbs mysteries to appear since 2003. It is my first encounter with this heroine, whose business card describes her as ?psychologist and investigator? (which must have been an unusual combination in 1939 Britain). I ...

    It is great to have Maisie, Sandra and Billie back in the old office working on investigations again. Feels like the book is back on track. World War II has started and for all the veterans of WWI and their families it is a difficult time. Dr. Francesca Thomas of the Belgium Embassy...

    easy going crime book based at at the start of WW2 with several people killed by similar methods and maisie is employed to find the killer and the connections between each victim. ...

    The last few Maisie Dobbs books have found Maisie in Germany and Spain, away from her friends and family, trying to heal from a horrible tragedy. The latest book, In This Grave Hour, Maisie is back in London and back to work as a private investigator and psychologist. That means tha...

    I had skipped the last two of the Maisie Dobbs series that venture into foreign lands, mainly because of the reviews, but had read the previous ten. Now Maisie is back in London with her private investigations and her old cohorts at hand. It did feel a little like old home week when on...

    I have enjoyed each addition to this wonderful series, which often leaves me thoughtful, or touches me in some way. This volume caused me to think about the way we behave during a time of grieving, and most particularly on how humor can provide a brief respite from the heavy burden of ...

    Maisie and her team are back doing what they do best......investigating murder. Lots of new WWII storylines opened for future books. This one recharged my enthusiasm for the series. ...

    Absolutely masterful. A perfect build on the series -- which continues to be a great combination that gets better with each book. ...

    After setting the two previous books in other countries, Winspear puts Maisie back in London where she started 20 years ago with the cast of characters we have come to know and love. This books starts with Maisie gathered with her friend Priscilla and family around the radio as McMilla...

    This book is the first that I have read in the series, and I wasn't lost. The times that the author referred to earlier events, she gave plenty of details about it. I loved Maisie. This woman is an established investigator with complicated war and personal backgrounds. The story is so ...

    Originally published at Reading Reality Welcome to the Sitzkrieg, or as it was better known in Britain, the Phoney War. As this 13th book in the Maisie Dobbs series opens in the fall of 1939, Britain declares war on Nazi Germany after its invasion of Poland. Then nothing happens....

    I am always seduced into reading Maisie Dobbs' novels by the settings and the period but I am afraid that more often than not I am most disappointed. And this is the case with 'In This Grave Hour'. It is an intense beginning as Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain broadcasts to the na...

    This series is like a comforting bowl of porridge for me. I like the historical details, and it's been interesting finding out little things about how England came out of the First World War in the first book in this series, all the way to this book, with England entering the Second Wo...

    It's okay, but not up to her other books which were solid 5-stars. I know I'm in the minority here, which is okay, but I personally found the story line rather boring and tedious. In the past I could read her books in a day or two. I found myself putting this book aside often. The wrap...

    I lose my train of thought if I so much as hear a dog bark outside - but in this book, the redoubtable Maisie Dobbs can listen to her country declaring war on Nazi Germany and still have the pluck and concentration to solve a couple of initially baffling murders! Here's my review over ...

    This is the latest in a steady stream of more than a dozen Maisie Dobbs mysteries to appear since 2003. It is my first encounter with this heroine, whose business card describes her as ?psychologist and investigator? (which must have been an unusual combination in 1939 Britain). I ...

    It is great to have Maisie, Sandra and Billie back in the old office working on investigations again. Feels like the book is back on track. World War II has started and for all the veterans of WWI and their families it is a difficult time. Dr. Francesca Thomas of the Belgium Embassy...

    easy going crime book based at at the start of WW2 with several people killed by similar methods and maisie is employed to find the killer and the connections between each victim. ...

    The last few Maisie Dobbs books have found Maisie in Germany and Spain, away from her friends and family, trying to heal from a horrible tragedy. The latest book, In This Grave Hour, Maisie is back in London and back to work as a private investigator and psychologist. That means tha...

    I had skipped the last two of the Maisie Dobbs series that venture into foreign lands, mainly because of the reviews, but had read the previous ten. Now Maisie is back in London with her private investigations and her old cohorts at hand. It did feel a little like old home week when on...

    I have enjoyed each addition to this wonderful series, which often leaves me thoughtful, or touches me in some way. This volume caused me to think about the way we behave during a time of grieving, and most particularly on how humor can provide a brief respite from the heavy burden of ...

    Maisie and her team are back doing what they do best......investigating murder. Lots of new WWII storylines opened for future books. This one recharged my enthusiasm for the series. ...

    Absolutely masterful. A perfect build on the series -- which continues to be a great combination that gets better with each book. ...

    After setting the two previous books in other countries, Winspear puts Maisie back in London where she started 20 years ago with the cast of characters we have come to know and love. This books starts with Maisie gathered with her friend Priscilla and family around the radio as McMilla...

    This book is the first that I have read in the series, and I wasn't lost. The times that the author referred to earlier events, she gave plenty of details about it. I loved Maisie. This woman is an established investigator with complicated war and personal backgrounds. The story is so ...

    Better than the last one. ...

    Jacqueline Winspear continues to hone her skills and develop her characters. This book opens at the start of Britain's declaration of war in 1939. Maisie is hired by a former colleague who holds dual citizeship -- Belgium and the U.K. A man living in England, a past Belgium refugee fro...

    Loved it. Great storyline, superb characters, all the emotion. The problem with these Maisie Dobbs books is that I want to read them quickly to see what happens, but then am so upset that I have to wait so long for the next book! ...

    Ah, Maisie!! I was so glad to finally get my hands on a new Maisie Dobbs, and I was not disappointed! Time continues to pass and now Britain is on the cusp of ANOTHER war! For Maisie and many of her friends and co-workers, the LAST war was the worst thing ever, but now Mr Hitler wants ...

    Originally published at Reading Reality Welcome to the Sitzkrieg, or as it was better known in Britain, the Phoney War. As this 13th book in the Maisie Dobbs series opens in the fall of 1939, Britain declares war on Nazi Germany after its invasion of Poland. Then nothing happens....

    I really enjoy history and mysteries. Combining the two is perfect. I get to be engaged and interested while maybe learning a thing or two. In this case, I learned about some things that went on during WWI and WWII. ...

    My love for Maisie Dobbs has never wavered. Some books in this epic series are better than others, and this one is definitely a 4-star book. She is sensible and compassionate and vastly intelligent. I always appreciate Winspear's historical details of the time period. When I first star...

    This is the latest in a steady stream of more than a dozen Maisie Dobbs mysteries to appear since 2003. It is my first encounter with this heroine, whose business card describes her as ?psychologist and investigator? (which must have been an unusual combination in 1939 Britain). I ...

    On the day Britain enters World War II, private detective Maisie Dobbs gets a visit from her old colleague, Dr. Francesca Thomas. Francesca, a Belgian national, asks Maisie to investigate the death of Frederick Addens - a Belgian refugee who came to Britain as a teenager during World...

    Maisie Dobbs is hired by a member of the Belgian embassy in this 13th installment of the series. A Belgian refugee has been murdered and the embassy wants more of an investigation than the police are providing. Things are in turmoil in London as Germany and England are preparing to go...

    Jacqueline Winspear?s Maisie Dobbs is one of the most creatively written characters in fiction today, and In This Grave Hour is an outstanding addition to the series. The story begins on September 3, 1939, the day Great Britain officially declared war on Germany thereby formally ente...

    September 3, 1939. Great Britain declares war on Germany and this novel begins. Another excellent installment of the Maisie Dobbs series. The main story involves Belgian refugees in England from The Great War, but along the way we see the minutiae of the country preparing for another w...

    This series is like a comforting bowl of porridge for me. I like the historical details, and it's been interesting finding out little things about how England came out of the First World War in the first book in this series, all the way to this book, with England entering the Second Wo...

    It's okay, but not up to her other books which were solid 5-stars. I know I'm in the minority here, which is okay, but I personally found the story line rather boring and tedious. In the past I could read her books in a day or two. I found myself putting this book aside often. The wrap...

    I lose my train of thought if I so much as hear a dog bark outside - but in this book, the redoubtable Maisie Dobbs can listen to her country declaring war on Nazi Germany and still have the pluck and concentration to solve a couple of initially baffling murders! Here's my review over ...

    This is the latest in a steady stream of more than a dozen Maisie Dobbs mysteries to appear since 2003. It is my first encounter with this heroine, whose business card describes her as ?psychologist and investigator? (which must have been an unusual combination in 1939 Britain). I ...

    It is great to have Maisie, Sandra and Billie back in the old office working on investigations again. Feels like the book is back on track. World War II has started and for all the veterans of WWI and their families it is a difficult time. Dr. Francesca Thomas of the Belgium Embassy...

    easy going crime book based at at the start of WW2 with several people killed by similar methods and maisie is employed to find the killer and the connections between each victim. ...

    The last few Maisie Dobbs books have found Maisie in Germany and Spain, away from her friends and family, trying to heal from a horrible tragedy. The latest book, In This Grave Hour, Maisie is back in London and back to work as a private investigator and psychologist. That means tha...

    I had skipped the last two of the Maisie Dobbs series that venture into foreign lands, mainly because of the reviews, but had read the previous ten. Now Maisie is back in London with her private investigations and her old cohorts at hand. It did feel a little like old home week when on...

    I have enjoyed each addition to this wonderful series, which often leaves me thoughtful, or touches me in some way. This volume caused me to think about the way we behave during a time of grieving, and most particularly on how humor can provide a brief respite from the heavy burden of ...

    Maisie and her team are back doing what they do best......investigating murder. Lots of new WWII storylines opened for future books. This one recharged my enthusiasm for the series. ...

    Absolutely masterful. A perfect build on the series -- which continues to be a great combination that gets better with each book. ...

    After setting the two previous books in other countries, Winspear puts Maisie back in London where she started 20 years ago with the cast of characters we have come to know and love. This books starts with Maisie gathered with her friend Priscilla and family around the radio as McMilla...

    This book is the first that I have read in the series, and I wasn't lost. The times that the author referred to earlier events, she gave plenty of details about it. I loved Maisie. This woman is an established investigator with complicated war and personal backgrounds. The story is so ...

    Better than the last one. ...

    Jacqueline Winspear continues to hone her skills and develop her characters. This book opens at the start of Britain's declaration of war in 1939. Maisie is hired by a former colleague who holds dual citizeship -- Belgium and the U.K. A man living in England, a past Belgium refugee fro...

    Loved it. Great storyline, superb characters, all the emotion. The problem with these Maisie Dobbs books is that I want to read them quickly to see what happens, but then am so upset that I have to wait so long for the next book! ...

    Ah, Maisie!! I was so glad to finally get my hands on a new Maisie Dobbs, and I was not disappointed! Time continues to pass and now Britain is on the cusp of ANOTHER war! For Maisie and many of her friends and co-workers, the LAST war was the worst thing ever, but now Mr Hitler wants ...

    Originally published at Reading Reality Welcome to the Sitzkrieg, or as it was better known in Britain, the Phoney War. As this 13th book in the Maisie Dobbs series opens in the fall of 1939, Britain declares war on Nazi Germany after its invasion of Poland. Then nothing happens....

    I really enjoy history and mysteries. Combining the two is perfect. I get to be engaged and interested while maybe learning a thing or two. In this case, I learned about some things that went on during WWI and WWII. ...

    My love for Maisie Dobbs has never wavered. Some books in this epic series are better than others, and this one is definitely a 4-star book. She is sensible and compassionate and vastly intelligent. I always appreciate Winspear's historical details of the time period. When I first star...

    I read this EARC courtesy of Harper books and Edelweiss. Pub date 03/14/17 Well, Maisie Dobbs is at it again. Traipsing all over the country and then across the continent trying to make sense of, and find the connection between, men who seem to find themselves dead. Murdered. In a ...
