Maids of Misfortune - M. Louisa Locke
Maids of Misfortuneis the first novel in the Victorian San Francisco Mystery series. This book is free for the kindle.It's 1879. Annie Fuller is a young widow who runs a boarding house in San Francisco. Besides owning a boarding house, Annie is also Madam Sibyl. Madam Sibyl is a clairvoyant who specializes in financial advice. When one of Annie's clients dies under mysterious circumstances, she decides to investigate on her own. The mix of 19th century society's propriety and Annie's independent ways make for an interesting clash. This is a good murder mystery with just a little romance. Very highly recommended.
