San Francisco 1882: Annie has a problem. She has a beautiful child, a loving husband, a well-run boardinghouse with a supportive circle of friends and family, but she's feeling restless and unhappy. Dr. Charlotte Brown, the doctor who delivered Annie's baby, has a different problem. The Pacific Dispensary for Women and Children, the clinic and hospital she co-founded, is being threatened by financial and legal difficulties caused by the mysterious illness of a former patient.
When Annie takes up the challenge to help Dr. Brown and the dispensary, she will discover that getting back into the business of investigating crimes is exactly the remedy she requires. Lethal Remedies is the seventh novel in the USA Today best-selling cozy, historical, Victorian San Francisco Mystery series and comes after Scholarly Pursuits and before Entangled Threads.
