Kathleen Hennessey, Annie Fuller's young Irish maid, has a plan. When her mistress is asked to expose a fraudulent trance medium, Arabella Frampton, Kathleen is determined to assist in the investigation, just like the Pinkerton detectives she has read about in the dime novels.
Nate Dawson, up-and-coming San Francisco lawyer, has a dilemma. He wants to marry the unconventional Annie Fuller, but he doesn't feel he can reveal his true feelings until he has a way to make enough money to support her.
In Uneasy Spirits, this cozy historical mystery of romantic suspense, Annie delves into the intriguing world of 19th century spiritualism, encountering true believers and naïve dupes, clever frauds and unexplained supernatural phenomena. She will soon find there are as many secrets as there are spirits swirling around the Frampton séance table. Some of those secrets will threaten the foundation of her career as Madam Sibyl and the future of her relationship with Nate Dawson, and, in time, they will threaten her very life itself.
Uneasy Spirits is the second book in M. Louisa Locke's Victorian historical mystery series, followed by Bloody Lessons.

If you could sum up Uneasy Spirits in three words, what would they be?
Captivating historical mystery
What was one of the most memorable moments of Uneasy Spirits?
Too many to mention, the narration was dramatic and held my attention throughout this novel that had me on the edge of my seat. Annie is such a strong character she has such determination.
Have you listened to any of Alexandra Haag’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Yes she has great flair and her voice is clear and is easy to listen to. She added so much to this novel in her narration.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Victorian mystery at its best.
Any additional comments?
The wealth of historical detail makes this novel one I will enjoy listening to many times.

Another wonderful historical mystery
I love this series! I enjoy the characters and the mystery, but what sets it apart is the setting of historic San Francisco. SF has been one of my favorite places to visit, and I enjoy learning about what it was like in the late 1800’s. Although there is a lot of historical detail, it always seems appropriate to and integrated into the story.
The narrator has a pleasing voice and I find her relaxing to listen to -- a good listen for commuting or before bed. Although this installment in the series has some mildly creepy aspects. There were a few times I decided it would be better listened to in the light of day!

The story was elementary. It is easy to pick out the bad guy. I think I would listen another book.
I found the reader hard to follow when she changed her voice for the different characters. She would start reading in character and her voice would change to normal before the end of character's quote. I gave the reader 3 stars for effort.
