Jacqueline Winspear - Author

Fellow novelist KERRY REICHS on JACQUELINE WINSPEAR

I met – okay, I’ll be honest – stalked Jacqueline Winspear at a writer’s conference after reading Maisie Dobbs. The titular character of Winspear’s books is one you wish was your best friend. A historically intriguing peek at London in the cradle between two world wars, Winspear creates complex, multi-faceted people and plots that are more psychological studies than standard mystery fare. With Maisie’s skill at understanding people, after spending an afternoon with the “psychological sleuth” you will savor the relaxed feeling of her soothing hand on your brow.

If you like Jacqueline Winspear you might also like to read books by M C Beaton, Catriona Mcpherson and Martha Grimes.
