Description

In Bloody Lessons, it's the winter of 1880, and the teachers of San Francisco are under attack: their salaries slashed and their competency and morals questioned in a series of poison pen letters.

Annie Fuller, the reluctant clairvoyant, has been called in to investigate by Nate Dawson, her lawyer beau, and the case becomes personal when they discover that Laura, Nate's sister, may be one of the teachers being targeted.

In this installment of the Victorian San Francisco Mystery series, readers will find the same blend of a cozy mystery and romantic suspense, played out against the historical backdrop of late 19th century San Francisco, that they found in Maids of Misfortune and Uneasy Spirits.

If you are new to this series, you will still enjoy spending time with the lively residents of Annie Fuller's boarding house and visiting San Francisco when Golden Gate Park was filled with horse-drawn carriages, politics were controlled by saloon-keepers, and kisses were stolen under gaslight.

    Another fantastic book in this series. I do love these stories. A mystery, Victorian history and some love (Victorian Style). The descriptions of San Francisco life and the elegant clothes make them real. More so, what life was like during this era. It's educational as well as entertaining!

    Each novel in this series is so enjoyable to read. I love the characters. Having lived in the SF Bay Area for several years, I found the local history fascinating and entertaining.
