Although sometimes a little too wordy, I have learned so much of that era through these books. It's like you are actually there.

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.

I loved this third book of the adventures of Annie and Nate. It was full of suspense, romance, historical information and a touch of humor. I particularly like the focus on womens' issues of the period, which unfortunately are still some of the same issues faced by women today. I highly recommend this series to all historical mystery fans.
