One dimension on everything: character, mystery, story, atmosphere. ( )

Everything about this book was charming. I read it a while back but found the audiobook on sale recently, so it gave me the excuse I needed to reread it.

Annie Fuller, a trained financier who can find no work since she's not a man, masquerades as a fortune teller in order to earn an income. Unfortunately, near the beginning of the story, one of her favorite clients is found dead and she believes it's murder. Along with a lawyer who initially mistakes her boarding house as a brothel, Annie goes undercover to track down the suspect. And what a character Annie is. She is quite forward for her time, insisting on doing things her way and getting into plenty of scraps, but also getting herself out of those scrapes without needing a man to rescue her. Regardless, the growing relationship between Annie and her lawyer friend is sweet. There is also a Chinese servant who is a constant reminder of the stereotypes of Chinese at that time. He, like Annie, stands out from the stereotypes in many ways. I can't wait to continue rereading or listening to this series. I had forgotten how fun these books are. ( )

A free Kindle d/l in 2013. It was an 1870's San Francisco mystery and a very well written period piece. My only complaint is the "newfangled" grammar: snuck instead of sneaked and hung instead of hanged; but then, I am a bit of a grammar dinosaur. It probably depicted women with slightly more rights than they would have had during that time period, also. 337 pages ( )

A look a 19th century San Francisco. A mystery with a paranormal bent.
Enjoyed. ( )

Boring, slow moving ( )

The bastard!
Annie Fuller gasped, shocked at even allowing such an unladylike expression to enter her mind.
