Publisher's Summary

This short story, set in 1879 San Francisco, features two elderly dressmakers, Miss Minnie and Miss Millie Moffet, who face a moral dilemma of no small dimensions. They turn for advice to Annie Fuller, a widowed boardinghouse owner who supplements her income as a clairvoyant, Madam Sibyl.
For those who have read Locke's full-length Victorian San Francisco mysteries, Maids of Misfortune, Uneasy Spirits, and Bloody Lessons, or her other short story, "Dandy Detects", this is an amusing glimpse into the lives of Annie Fuller's two most eccentric boarders. For those unfamiliar with Locke's mysteries and the late 19th century world they portray, this is just a taste of things to come. Enjoy.

Tisk, Tisk, What's an old Maid to do?

These too old maids are just my favorite characters ever!! The one never speaks a word and the other wants to handle things just right. So they handle it things to that way ward husbands are shamed into doing the right thing. It just makes me giggle!! I hope you enjoy it as well!

Another Great Story in the Series

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

Yes, I really enjoy the Victorian San Fransisco series by M.Louisa Locke and this is another winner. It's only about 45 minutes long and keeps your interest the entire time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Miss Millie is my favorite because she's so quiet but she seems to be the one who comes up with the solutions.

What about Alexandra Haag’s performance did you like?

Her voice is very pleasant to listen to.

Who was the most memorable character of The Misses Moffet Mend A Marriage and why?

Miss Millie and Miss Minnie are the most memorable characters. I love them in the other books as well. They are 2 older ladies who just seem like they would be wonderful to sit and visit with.
