Birds of a Feather (Maisie Dobbs, Book 2)

Birds of a Feather - Jacqueline Winspear I enjoyed the setting of this book, but felt there were too many odd modern references that pulled me out of the book. Maisie's detecting methods are odd - she verges on being a psychic detective, but the book stops short. I also thought the reference to the inventor of pilates was a bit silly.

I did enjoy all the details about the Great War. Maisie is a likeable character, if a bit too perfect sometimes. I might recommend this book, with a few reservations.
