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!

Great Story but too short!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it was a delightful, engaging story and as a fan of the series it was like visiting old friends and getting to know a minor character better.

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

Not really - it was more of a known conclusion, but interesting to see how it unfolded. After all these are lone women in 19th century America, so they have almost no power.

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

She brought a warmth to the character, creating a feeling of coziness and intimacy.

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

No.

Any additional comments?

Great story, very good narration, but too short at just 41 minutes!
