I received a free copy of Leaving Everything Most Loved from TLC Book Tours for my honest review.
About the Book:

About the Author:
Aaaah, Maisie. What in the devil is going on? I fell in love with in the first book that I read – I did. You were smart, you were headstrong, you were a bit damaged but you were getting through it. But in the two books since you have turned into a dormouse. You can’t seem to make a decision and when you do you overthink it. I am so sad. Leaving Everything Most Loved is better than Elegy for Eddie I will give you that but I still don’t understand you.
In this book Maisie is hired to find the killer of a beautiful Indian woman, Usha Pramal. As she investigates a second woman, a friend of Usha’s is also murdered in the same way. Both women lived in a hostel for woman who had been fired from their jobs in England and left with nowhere to go and no money to get home. All who met Usha agree that there was something very special about her – but who hated her enough to want to kill her? As Maisie and her team try and find out they learn that England is not very kind to many of its immigrants.
Maisie is also dealing with a need to travel and she is not sure she wants to marry her James. He is being very patient but he won’t wait forever – he gives her a deadline and this does way heavily upon her because she does love him. He is heading to Canada to work on experimental aircraft to help prepare for what will be WWII.
The book was easy enough to read. Maisie works through her mystery if a bit slowly. She works through her personal problems ad nauseum. I really think she just needs a kick in the pants.
