Maids of Misfortune A Victorian San Francisco Mystery by M. Lock
This cozy historical mystery is set in 1879, San Francisco. It is a cozy, locked door mystery about a widow named Annie, that solves a murder mystery, and also saves her boarding house from the clutches of one of her late husbands debtors. She plays a clairvoyant for added income, when one of her clients, Matthew Voss is murdered. She then becomes an amazing undercover sleuth by playing the part of a servant in the Matthew Voss home. This was a fun read. I am sure that this book is the beginning of a delightful mystery series.
