Fabulous series!

I thought that this book was fantastic as well as the whole series of the Victorian San Francisco mysteries! I am hoping that Mrs. Locke adds more to the series. I would like to continue hearing about Annie and Nate along with Nate sister, Laura and Seth who looks like he is most definitely Laura's love interest. One of the things that I enjoy about the series is it is packed full of historical detail so that the reader actually feels as if they are back in San Francisco during the Victorian era. I would recommend the book in the series to anyone who loves a good history oracle cozy mystery!

Great twists

Another enjoyable read/listen by M. Louisa Locke. The audio version by Alexandra Haag helped bring this story to life. A very good joint effort by two very talented artistes.
I especially liked all the twists and turns that kept me guessing and I will admit to being quite surprised in the end as to who the murderer really was.
In addition to this, the love and mutual respect building up between Anne and Nate was lovely to read about.
It seems that Nate's younger sister is getting up to a bit of mischief in this story which is quite refreshing.
This is the third stand-alone story in the series that I have read so far and I can quite happily recommend each one of them.
