This Victorian thriller is set in San Francisco, in the world of Annie Fuller (who doubles as clairvoyant Madam Sibyl). Annie actually doesn’t believe in any of the astrology or palmistry but as an intellectual woman, she uses it as a front to help give her clients business advice. When she is asked to investigate some mediums (the Framptons) who claim to be talking to deceased relatives of their clients Annie and her kitchen maid Kathleen soon step into a very dangerous world. Discovering the truth about the Framptons may just expose Annie’s own secret that she is not really clairvoyant, can she take that risk to help her friend. The line between helping and deceiving suddenly becomes very blurred for Annie and she’s not too sure where she stands on it.
There is also an underlying love story between Annie and Nate, an up and coming lawyer who is desperate to break out of the shadows of his Uncle’s law firm. Their story is very sweet and Nate is a great character, but perhaps a little overshadowed in this story by Annie and Kathleen. I suspect he will be much more interesting in the other books as their storyline develops.
The historical descriptions are great in this book, and as some other reviewers have mentioned it’s actually set during Halloween so some of the details are really interesting.
This book can certainly be read as a standalone, but as more is revealed about the characters and their relationships develop as the series progresses, it might be best to start from the first book in the series, Maids of Misfortune: A Victorian San Francisco Mystery (which I am hoping to do). I certainly will return to read more books by this author in future.

Enjoy the charlatans that think they can connect with the dead and the efforts to unveil them to the innocent.
Annie got on my nerves at times hiding everything from everyone but I suppose that was expected of women back then, a totally different era.
Thoroughly enjoyed it here’s to the next one.
She of course puts herself in harms way but she is very resilient and determined and with the help of her maid and her beau she will sort this puzzle out.
The plot is lively and the characters are well fleshed out. There are twists to keep you guessing and it all gets wrapped up nicely at the end.
Will certainly be reading more of the author's work.
The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that there are a few errors present, such as a missing word here and there. It doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the book however.
Annie becomes embroiled in the dealings of a clairvoyant who may or may not be genuine. The trouble is, the relative of one of those attending the sessions has grave concerns. And Annie gets a shock when she herself decides to try and dupe the clairvoyant.
I won't say anymore as I don't want to spoil it, suffice to say this is an author to watch out for, and I will most certainly be looking out for more of the same.
All in all, it was a book that filled the space when I wasn't in the mood for a deep thriller or a complicated fantasy (there seem to be lots of those about!).
I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it a good follow on to the previous book.
I dont want to spoil the storyline for you so will just say that is a must to read
