User reviews about this book
I was looking for a free book to download to pass some time. I very much enjoyed this story and will soon begin reading the next book in the series!
Maids of Misfortune
Engrossing and fast paced story. Rapid pace held my interest. I found the aliases confusing at times. I liked the female main character and her willful personality. I enjoyed her feminist perspective. And the depiction of women at the turn of the 20th century. I’d like to read more my this author.
Shows that no maid, however fortunate, ever made a living wage.
These women are tough cookies. Smart, inventive, and most of the upper crust women try the best they know how too take care of those around them — insert vast amounts of wit.
Only 4/5 because of the gentlemen. They do need some help from their “hunks”, but when the hunk tries the same help over and over, who can blame a gal (Lady) when she blows up?
Maids of Misfortune by M. Louisa Locke was the first book I read in this series. I can honestly say that I fell in love with Annie's character right away and then with all the rest! Nate, Annie's borders and her staff were all lovely characters! Ms. Locke's description of San Francisco in the late 1800 was such a treat. I recommended the books to my sister and she enjoyed reading them as much as I did!!! I highly recommend this series!!
Everything was good, except...
By Ann not Annie
I enjoyed reading this mystery. I found the story moved along and the setting and characters were interesting. The reason I gave it only 4 star was that the circumstances surrounding the murderer's actions were kind of flimsy. The coincidence with the bag, really? Would I read another one by this author, probably.
Captured me when I got to the double life and could not put it down until I found out who the real muder was
Maids of misfortune
Excellent and gripping book. Brought San Francisco of late 1800s in front of you. I could imagine horse carriages moving about San Francisco hills instead of cable cars. Great writing and I loved it.
Great Story and Characters
First time reading this author. Kudos to Mrs. Locke. I think the characters are well developed and the story lines are great. I felt I was right there with Annie in this time period. I love historical-type mysteries This is a great piece of literature. I do plan to read the next book Uneasy Spirits to continue on my adventure with Annie and Mr. Dawson. :)..
A fantastic mystery. As much as I tried, I never totally figured out the ending. The book comes alive and is a true page turner. The San Francisco Victorian history is a bonus. It is truly interesting. This is a series to read!
