Maids of Misfortune Review

Maids of Misfortune (A Victorian San Francisco Mystery #1)Maids of Misfortune by M. Louisa Locke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved getting to know Annie Fuller. She was a widow in 1879 San Francisco that owned a boarding house. She also moonlighted as a clairvoyant to pay her bills. Annie had a clear mmd concerning finances and while playing clairvoyant advisor she became friends and financial advisor to Matthew Voss.

After the murder of Voss Annie felt she had to try to prove that his death was not a suicide. She meets young attorney Nathaniel Dawson and working together they try to figure out what exactly happened to her friend.

It is a very interesting and detailed story showing life in the 1870’s. The author M. Louisa Locke brings the feelings of the times to life and you experienced what it was like to be a woman in that time. A wonderful series.
