Violet Vanquishes a Villain

Violet Vanquishes a Villain

Series: A Victorian San Francisco Mystery (Novella 1)


In this historical history novella set in August of 1880, Annie and Nate Dawson’s trip down the San Francisco peninsula to San Jose was supposed to be a pleasant romantic interlude and a chance for Annie to get to know Nate’s family better. When the visit takes a serious turn, Annie races to expose a criminal who could ruin a young man’s life, getting help from an unexpected quarter.

The events in Violet Vanquishes a Villain come right after Deadly Proof, the fourth book in Locke’s USA Today bestselling cozy Victorian San Francisco mystery series and before Pilfered Promises, the fifth book in the series.
