Overview

In Bloody Lessons, it's the winter of 1880, and the teachers of San Francisco are under attack: their salaries slashed and their competency and morals questioned in a series of poison pen letters.

Annie Fuller, the reluctant clairvoyant, has been called in to investigate by Nate Dawson, her lawyer beau, and the case becomes personal when they discover that Laura, Nate's sister, may be one of the teachers being targeted.

In this installment of the Victorian San Francisco Mystery series, readers will find the same blend of a cozy mystery and romantic suspense, played out against the historical backdrop of late 19th century San Francisco, that they found in Maids of Misfortune and Uneasy Spirits.

If you are new to this series, you will still enjoy spending time with the lively residents of Annie Fuller's boarding house and visiting San Francisco when Golden Gate Park was filled with horse-drawn carriages, politics were controlled by saloon-keepers, and kisses were stolen under gaslight.

I have read al three of her books. I enjoyed them all but this was the best. Locke's knowledge of San Francisco history is stellar. Loved the character of Laura and thought it was about time for the ending we got.

I've enjoyed the Annie Fuller mysteries tremendously! The author is skilled at recreating the atmosphere, environment, attitudes, and even the conversation of the Victorian era in San Francisco. I felt immersed in the era and location while enjoying engaging characters and a non-formulaic mystery. This book has been added to my "books I'll happily re-read ' pile, and I look forward to more by this author.
