    Maids of Misfortune: a Victorian San Francisco Mys

    I liked the historical aspect . The main character Annie poses as a servant to find out how and who committed the murder and does not brush off the hardships that a servant of that time would have . Annie is ahead of her time in her thinking of equality of the sexes yet it takes her time as a servant to see the inequalities of sex ,station and ethnic background, in this case Irish Catholic. The book had good pacing , the good characters were likable and became more than one dimensional as the book progressed and as expected the bad were bad. I'm not overly keen on Nate , I am not so sure he can be made to see equality for women, especially a wife.

    Fortune Teller’s Cleverness

    Sibyl uses her crystal ball powers to gain in the stock market. When her best customer is found dead, she feels the need to play detective as well as house servant. The tale kept me reading but it seemed to be dragged out a bit too much for my taste. Still I read through to the solid ending.

    Good read

    Reads like the wind. The characters are engaging. Written with humour, but do not be deceived by any idea that this might be "just" a whodunnit. There is eloquence and intelligence in this story. I'm definitely up for reading more!

    How it all began...

    The first in an excellent series of mysteries that involve the readers intellect as well as portraying women’s roles faithfully in the late 1800s.Great characters and an interesting plot. A very good read.
