Good start, but didn't quite live up to its potential for me. Too bad, because the setting and social situation of the protagonist were really appealing. ( )

Mrs. Annie Fuller, a widow living in San Francisco, makes her living running a boarding house, and giving business advice as Madam Sibyl, a clairvoyant.
Then one of her clients commits suicide which she believes is false and so goes undercover in his household to determine the truth. ( )

One dimension on everything: character, mystery, story, atmosphere. ( )

Everything about this book was charming. I read it a while back but found the audiobook on sale recently, so it gave me the excuse I needed to reread it.

Annie Fuller, a trained financier who can find no work since she's not a man, masquerades as a fortune teller in order to earn an income. Unfortunately, near the beginning of the story, one of her favorite clients is found dead and she believes it's murder. Along with a lawyer who initially mistakes her boarding house as a brothel, Annie goes undercover to track down the suspect. And what a character Annie is. She is quite forward for her time, insisting on doing things her way and getting into plenty of scraps, but also getting herself out of those scrapes without needing a man to rescue her. Regardless, the growing relationship between Annie and her lawyer friend is sweet. There is also a Chinese servant who is a constant reminder of the stereotypes of Chinese at that time. He, like Annie, stands out from the stereotypes in many ways. I can't wait to continue rereading or listening to this series. I had forgotten how fun these books are. ( )
