Much to the distress of Nate Dawson, the Moffet sisters have been permanent fixtures of Annie Fuller's boarding house since its introduction in Maids of Misfortune. However, despite their constant presence, we readers haven't been privy to much of their story or character. Locke remedies this in her delightful short, The Misses Moffet Mend a Marriage.

First of all, I love that these two elderly women are so much more percept...more
This is another winner in the Victorian San Fransisco Mystery series. The characters of Miss Millie and Miss Minnie have the leading role in this short story which I received free on audible for an honest review.

The ladies, who are seamstresses, find that one of their client's husband may be unfaithful to his wife with another one of their clients. They subtly find out the truth and help keep the marriage in question from failing.

The audio version of this is very well narrated and easy to list...more

I enjoyed this short, and it was enough to hold me over until Ms. Locke's next book came out. I just love the Miss Moffets. They are such a clever creation as characters, in all their quirkiness. I got a bit of a peak into their background and their lives and got to know them just a little bit better.

Not really a mystery at all, but an amusing short story that features the secondary characters from the mystery series. The sisters are just the sort you'd like to have as your personal seamstresses, if one could afford such a thing. A quick, amusing read about how to accomplish your goals on the sly.

Another fun, little short story. Something that probably wouldn't be published as a physical book outside of a collection of short stories, but, thanks to the power of e-book readers, gets published and read on it's own. I enjoyed the Misses Moffet's and the small glimpse we got into them and their past.
This was a very quick read, but fun. It is really a short story rather than a book. I read it because I enjoyed the author's other book I had read - Maids of Misfortune.
Adorable short story featuring characters from the San Francisco Victorian mystery series. I have a new fondness for the Misses Moffet :)

Fun, clever mystery set in a Victorian setting--what more could you want? It's small, but satisfying (like a well-crafted truffle). Enjoy!
I enjoyed this and the other short story, Dandy Detects, a good bit, perhaps even more than the actual novels themselves.
Delightful! So clever too! We should all learn from these ladies. This short story makes me smile.
A refreshing visit to Victorian San Fransisco, to tide me over before the next full-length book comes out.
Sweet little story. Very short.

After being a professor of history for over 30 years, I am now retired and writing full time. The books in my Victorian San Francisco Mystery series, are based in part on my dissertation research on women who worked in the Far West at the end of the Nineteenth Century, and they feature Annie Fuller, a young widow who gives domestic and business advice as the clairvoyant, Madam Sibyl. She is aided...more
