Great Short Story
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.
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.
She brings the story to life with her voice characterizations.
No, it was just a very good story. Can't wait til the next book comes out!

Great Story but too short!
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.
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.
She brought a warmth to the character, creating a feeling of coziness and intimacy.
Great story, very good narration, but too short at just 41 minutes!
