M. Louisa Locke’s highly rated, bestselling series of Victorian era mysteries are tough to pigeonhole. They’re very carefully researched historical fiction, but they’re also murder mysteries with a generous dash of romance.
Locke’s Bloody Lessons is being offered on its own for 99 cents today only, as a Kindle Daily Deal, but you can currently get books 1-3 in the series for just $6.99 in a box set, too. Since each individual volume normally sells at $3.99, this box set is a real bargain!
With this boxed set you can get Maids of Misfortune, Uneasy Spirits, and Bloody Lessons, the first three ebooks in the romantic and suspenseful Victorian San Francisco Mystery series bundled together at a substantial discount. These cozy historical mysteries are also perfect gifts for readers of any age.
Maids of Misfortune (over 600 reviews, 4.2 stars) introduces Annie Fuller, a young widow who runs the O’Farrell Street boarding house and supplements her income by giving financial and domestic advice as Madam Sibyl. When Mr. Voss, one of Madam Sibyl’s clients, dies in mysterious circumstances, Annie goes undercover as domestic servant to find out the truth about Voss’s death and his missing assets. Against his better judgment, Nate Dawson, the Voss family lawyer, finds himself drawn into helping Mrs. Fuller in her investigations, alternatively fascinated and frustrated by Annie’s independent nature.
Uneasy Spirits (over 300 reviews, 4.2 stars) finds Annie Fuller and Nate Dawson, assisted by the boarding house maid, Kathleen, delving into the world of 19th century Spiritualism in order to expose a fraudulent trance medium.
Set in the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day, 1880, the recently published Bloody Lessons (over 90 reviews, 4.6 stars) finds Annie Fuller investigating who has been sending poison pen letters about the teachers of San Francisco. The case becomes personal when she discovers that Laura Dawson, the sister of her beau, Nate, may be one of the teachers under attack.
