Kathleen Hennessey, Annie Fuller's young Irish maid, has a plan. When her mistress is asked by one of the people in Annie's boarding house to investigate and expose a fraudulent trance medium, Arabella Frampton, Kathleen is determined to assist in this investigation, just like the Pinkerton detectives she has read about in the dime novels.
Nate Dawson, the 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 figured out a way to make enough money to support her.
In Uneasy Spirits, this light, romantic novel of suspense, Annie Fuller, with the help of Nate Dawson and Kathleen Hennessey, delves into the intriguing world of 19th century spiritualism, encountering true believers and naïve dupes, clever frauds and unexplained supernatural phenomena, and 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.
"This is a skillfully crafted mystery with wonderful recurring characters who are the kind of people that live with the reader long after the book is finished" -- RP Dahlke, author of A Dangerous Harbor
"The resolution was suspenseful and harrowing. This cozy has great characters, interesting plot, period detail, and suspense sprinkled with romance for a great mystery. If you like the Gaslight Mysteries by Victoria Thompson, you will most likely enjoy this series." -- Ariel Heart, Mystery and My Musings

This was such a fun read. Annie Fuller, a part time fortune teller, investigates a family of spiritualists, certain they're frauds and up to something actually sinister. The personal conflict for Annie is very honestly handled and I appreciated that. The relationship between her and Nate develops, which I also liked. But I think what made this so fun was the cast of truly unusual characters, well drawn, complex, and at times downright strange. I'm looking forward to more from this author.

Spiritualism in early 20th century San Francisco is explored here.The characters are engaging and I particularly liked the young, disturbed Evie May whose character was mercurial and as mysterious as the unknown stalker of the heroine, Annie Fuller. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is a gem! I love good "true to life" Victorian stories and Ms Locke comes so close to true life that it's seem to be written by a person living in San Francisco in the 1800's I also recommend "Maids of Misfortune" I LOVE both books ~ I wish she would've written a 100 more books! I highly highly highly recommend itWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
