Publisher's Summary

In this second book in the Victorian San Francisco Mystery series, it is the fall of 1879 and Annie Fuller, a young San Francisco widow, has a problem. Despite her growing financial success as the clairvoyant Madam Sibyl, Annie doesn't believe in the astrology and palmistry her clients think are the basis for her advice.
Kathleen Hennessey, Annie Fuller's young Irish maid, has a plan. When her mistress is asked to expose a fraudulent trance medium, Arabella Frampton, Kathleen is determined to assist in the investigation, just like the Pinkerton detectives she has read about in the dime novels.
Nate Dawson, up-and-coming San Francisco lawyer, has a dilemma. He wants to marry the unconventional Annie Fuller, but he doesn't feel he can reveal his true feelings until he has a way to make enough money to support her.
In Uneasy Spirits, this cozy historical mystery of romantic suspense, Annie delves into the intriguing world of 19th century spiritualism, encountering true believers and naïve dupes, clever frauds and unexplained supernatural phenomena. She will soon find there are as many secrets as there are spirits swirling around the Frampton séance table. Some of those secrets will threaten the foundation of her career as Madam Sibyl and the future of her relationship with Nate Dawson, and, in time, they will threaten her very life itself.
Uneasy Spirits is the second book in M. Louisa Locke's Victorian historical mystery series, followed by Bloody Lessons.

Stilted narration ruins listen

Would you try another book from M. Louisa Locke and/or Alexandra Haag?

I will not buy another audiobook with the same narrator.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her phrasing is poor; it's like listening to the "speak out loud" feature on my iPhone.

Any additional comments?

The premise behind these stories is intriguing. I have tried 2 of them but will return this one because I forgot the narration grated on my ear. Worth trying one in print.

Another wonderful historical mystery

I love this series! I enjoy the characters and the mystery, but what sets it apart is the setting of historic San Francisco. SF has been one of my favorite places to visit, and I enjoy learning about what it was like in the late 1800’s. Although there is a lot of historical detail, it always seems appropriate to and integrated into the story.

The narrator has a pleasing voice and I find her relaxing to listen to -- a good listen for commuting or before bed. Although this installment in the series has some mildly creepy aspects. There were a few times I decided it would be better listened to in the light of day!
