BOOK: An Incomplete Revenge by Jacqueline Winspear

An Incomplete Revenge by Jacqueline Winspear, 303 pages
book 5 of 11

Continuing Series Review Questions:

Give a brief summary of the book:
Maisie heads to a small village in the English countryside to investigate a property James Compton wants to buy. It happens to be the same area that her assistant Billy Beale and his family go to pick hops every fall. There is also a clan of Roma (gypsies) camped and picking at the time. Culture clash!

Likes? Maisie is getting more sure of herself, and the reader is getting to know her better. After her break-down in the last book, Maisie seemed stronger and did a little less looking back. She seemed to have closed some chapters in her life that have been bogging down the series. Less Maurice Blanche (her former mentor) was great - he has always given me the creeps.

Nothing in this book - all my dislikes have been dealt with. The mystery was pretty thin, but Maisie kept digging until she found it!

Additional Thoughts on the Series:
Looking forward to the next book, and how Maisie moves on with her life. Don't start with this one - this is a series all about character development, and references to previous books. Start at the beginning.

next book: 
After I get Among the Mad(#6from the library, I can get the next two, The Mapping of Love and Death, and A Lesson in Secrets on library audiobook.
