Dandy Little Short Story

Having listened to the first Victorian San Francisco mystery, I jumped on this little short story . . . I enjoyed it just as much . . . and I'm very pleased that the narrator has changed from the first in the series . . . Alexandra Haag does a much better job . . . the history of the Boston Terrier was a bonus!

- Debbie "Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper."

Great Short Story

What did you love best about Dandy Detects?

I have read the full-length Victorian San Francisco Mysteries, so I was looking forward to listening to this short story. I really like the characters in this story and the interaction between them.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Though I pretty much knew what was happening, it still did keep me at the edge of my seat because Alexandra brought the mystery to life.

What does Alexandra Haag bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings the story to life with her voice characterizations.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, it was just a very good story. Can't wait til the next book comes out!
