Dawn's Mystery Suggestions
There are a lot of wonderful mysteries out there, I am going to share a couple I have just read...
Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear - Maisie is a "psychologist and investigator" living in London, post-World War I. There are nine books in the series, start with Maisie Dobbs, where you are introduced to the main characters. Maisie is a young housemaid who makes her way into Cambridge because of her intelligence and patronage of her employers. During World War I she goes to the front as a nurse. When she returns, she opens her own detective agency and her first assignment finds her revisiting the horrors of the Great War and the things she left behind. I encourage all mystery lovers to pick up this series - you will love it.
Still Life by Louise Penny - join Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his colleagues in the rural areas of Montreal. This book introduces you to the Inspector and his forces. After reading the first you will definitely want to continue on in the series.
The Sweetness At The Bottom Of The Pie by Alan Bradley - A Flavia de Luce Mystery, part Harriet the Spy, Part Sherlock Holmes - you will love Flavia.
