Incomplete Revenge

by Jacqueline Winspear

Hooray! I'm caught up in one of the series I'm reading. It's astonishing that I've had this book for so long (over a year) and only just read it. I can't believe how time flies and gets away from us.

Winspear provides us with glimpse of the time period just after WWI. In England the class system is very much alive and so is hate and suspicion of unfamiliar groups of people. This book deals with a group of gypsys and the crimes they are suspected of committing in an English country village.

The Maisie Dobb's mysteries have a gentle pace but they are such good stories. Winspear brings together an interesting cast of characters and weaves an interesting tale of events that she brings together in a satisfactory conclusion. I love this series.

The nice thing about you reading this now is that the next book comes out in about a week, so everything is fresh in your mind!

I'm so glad I'm caught up with this series, too. I'm looking forward to Among the Mad. It's coming out in a week or so! I'll be waiting for the audio though.

I am working on this series right now. I read book one last year and I have read book 2 and 3 so far this year. I am waiting for book 4 and 5 to come in for me at the library! I really like the series so far, though.

It feels good to get caught up doesn't it? I have several series that I'm really, really far behind in...I enjoyed your review of this book!!

Good for you! I've only read the first and somehow wound up with this one in my stacks. Must've gotten as a comp title from work. Who knows anymore. The stacks are taking over!!

I love this series, too - and for some reason I haven't gotten to this one yet, either. I have the audibook to listen to, and I'm hoping to get to it within the next week or so. It'll be my first time listening to the series, so it will be interesting to see how it goes!

I've only read the first two (so far). I'm hoping to get to #3 soon. I'm just glad to see that you're still enjoying them.

Which is the first book in this series? I have heard a lot of good things about them, and am thinking of starting them.
