Annie Fuller, a young boardinghouse housekeeper and reluctant clairvoyant, met the kind, older Chinese servant Mr. Wong during her investigations into a mysterious death in Maids of Misfortune, the first book in Locke's Victorian San Francisco Mystery series. In "Mr. Wong Rights a Wrong", Annie Fuller once again turns to Mr. Wong for help in solving a puzzle that could have life or death consequences.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I really enjoy the Victorian San Fransisco series by M.Louisa Locke and this is another winner. It's only about 45 minutes long and keeps your interest the entire time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Miss Millie is my favorite because she's so quiet but she seems to be the one who comes up with the solutions.

What about Alexandra Haag’s performance did you like?

Her voice is very pleasant to listen to.

Who was the most memorable character of The Misses Moffet Mend A Marriage and why?

Miss Millie and Miss Minnie are the most memorable characters. I love them in the other books as well. They are 2 older ladies who just seem like they would be wonderful to sit and visit with.

In this short story it is the fall of 1879 and San Francisco swelters under a heat wave while Barbara Hewitt, a reserved school-teacher, uncovers a mystery with the help of her son's Boston Terrier, Dandy. This story is set in the gas-lit world created by Locke in her Victorian San Francisco Mystery series, which includes Maids of Misfortune, Uneasy Spirits, Bloody Lessons, and the short story "The Misses Moffet Mend a Marriage".

What did you love best about Dandy Detects?

I have read the full-length Victorian San Francisco Mysteries, so I was looking forward to listening to this short story. I really like the characters in this story and the interaction between them.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Though I pretty much knew what was happening, it still did keep me at the edge of my seat because Alexandra brought the mystery to life.

What does Alexandra Haag bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings the story to life with her voice characterizations.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, it was just a very good story. Can't wait til the next book comes out!
