An Incomplete Revenge by Jacqueline Winspear
If you enjoy historical mysteries, you’ll appreciate the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear. Set in England between the wars, Maisie is a former domestic servant, whose
current career as psychologist and investigator follows a grueling stint as a nurse during the First World War. Her war experience gives her some credibility with prospective clients, but in class conscious England, Maisie struggles to be taken seriously as a business woman. She is also burdened by love and guilt for her fiance, who was severely injured in the war.
In An Incomplete Revenge, a simple assignment to investigate a land purchase in rural Kent exposes a decade’s long secret.
This is an intriguing rather than quaint series–think Ruth Rendell not Agatha Christie.
