Author Jacqueline Windspear began her wonderful Maisie Dobbs historical detective series in 2003. The first novel was set in London soon after the end of WWI with Maisie setting up her detective agency. Maisie's life has changed a lot since including personal tragedy. To Die buy Once is Book 14 in the series and it is set in 1940 early in WWII. Every novel has been great, even the painful ones. This one is no exception. If you are looking for a similar series Molly Morphy by Rhys Bowen is similar in many ways. Rhys Bowen's Royal Spyness series is also somewhat similar but is much lighter and more fun than Maisie Dobbs.
I'm a huge fan of narrator and American actress Orlagh Cassidy, but her narration of To Die but Once is disappointing because her English accent is off.

I love this series! Masie and her crew seem like old friends and Ms Winspear captures the mood of England perfectly. I have a strong sense of being part of the scene - both city and countryside. Maxie's divergent thought process is fun to watch develop. All in all a marvelous book!
