Publisher's Summary

In Leaving Everything Most Loved by New York Times best-selling author Jacqueline Winspear, Maisie Dobbs investigates the murder of Indian immigrants in London.

The year is 1933. Maisie Dobbs is contacted by an Indian gentleman who has come to England in the hopes of finding out who killed his sister two months ago. Scotland Yard failed to make any arrest in the case, and there is reason to believe they failed to conduct a thorough investigation. The case becomes even more challenging when another Indian woman is murdered just hours before a scheduled interview. Meanwhile, unfinished business from a previous case becomes a distraction, as does a new development in Maisie's personal life.

Bringing a crucial chapter in the life and times of Maisie Dobbs to a close, Leaving Everything Most Loved marks a pivotal moment in this outstanding mystery series.

Especially magic

This was one of my very favorite Maisie takes. These books just get better and better. Orlagh Cassidy is the perfect voice for Maisie.

India and more

This author always introduces me to so much I've never thought about. This time to how Indians were treated as well as women in England. I'm captivated by the intrigue and the stories woven in this well written book.

Reservations

This is another good listen about the adventures of Maisie Dobbs. But there is too much padding of her past. We hear too much of where she has come from, again and again. We listen to Maisie as much for the plot as for the history of the times. I wish Winspear would moved the plot ahead without the padding. However, that being said, I still love this series.

Orlagh Cassidy IS Maisie Dobbs!

Winspear might have been Maisie Dobbs since her character development is so vivid. You won't have trouble finishing this book!

One of the best in the series

I don't want to give away the plot so I will just say that the mystery itself had enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. The main characters continued to develop. And your intriguing descriptions that encouraged me to revisit historical information concerning the British Empire in India. Mazie Dobbs herself can be a character who is difficult to like. She's over analytical about herself and her life. I also find her to be judgmental and insufferable at times. If I met her I wouldn't like her. However, the stories are saved by other interesting characters and her pursuit to solve the mystery

Maisie Dobbs

I really love these Maisie Dobbs mysteries. This one has a good story, but I found myself waiting for the shoe to fall. That made it a it harder to concentrate on the story.
Still very good though
