This book "Disney-izes" post WWI Britain in a way that I never dreamt possible for the historic fiction/mystery genre. The daffy-est "Polly-Anna" sleuth I have met yet. I just hated it.

Based on the reviews, I thought this was going to be somewhat like "Maisie Dobbs", a series that I enjoyed very much. I must admit that it bears a resemblance. The time period is the same, and the main character, Kate, resembles Maisie. I was happily listening to and enjoying the book for 5 hours until I came upon a sex scene. I must admit, I do not know how far the situation went - sometimes an author will start a scene such as this just to titillate, but I didn't want to know. Since I wasn't reading a printed page, I have no way of knowing. I pushed the "forward" button, and continued listening, but I totally lost interest. The whole experience was soured. I know some folks consider this prudish, but, after all, I am the one who paid the money for the book, hoping to have an enjoyable listening experience. If you're like me, and you enjoyed Maisie Dobbs, I'd advise you to pass this one up.
