Summer 1880, and lawyer and friend of Annie Fuller, Nate Dawson has his first case as lead in a defence trial - a female typesetter - Mrs. Florence Sullivan - is accused of killing the male owner. What possible motive could she have, is she protecting someone. Annie and her friends investigate. ( )

Nate, Annie Fuller’s fiancé, has asked her to help with a difficult case he is handling. His client is accused of murdering the owner of the printing company she works for, by the owner’s widow. The client refuses to help in any way of clearing herself of the charges.

Nate’s sister is also working in the printing trade and decides to become involved in trying to solve the mystery. Her youth and brashness are traits that do not lend to the investigating.

In the middle of this, Nate has finally proposed to Annie and she has accepted. They have set a date, but it may be cancelled due to this case!

It is interesting to read about women working in the printing industry at this time. It wasn’t easy or clean and they were still paid much less than men, but it was an income.

Again I found myself immersed in the world of Annie Fuller and the Victorian era. Not an easy period for women. I think it is the character being a strong willed lady with the ability to pull in her horns, when necessary, to get to the heart of the matter.

I am enjoying this series. ( )

Ann and her fiance work to prove the innocence of a typesetter accusued of murdering her former lover and current boss. Laura and Seth move forward in their relationship. ( )

Another story where Laura played a larger part, and again, I found her impulsiveness annoying. However, this one featured more of Annie and Nate - who were now trying very hard to plan their wedding (finally).

Another layered story where there were many suspects and it was a little harder to pick up - from the beginning - exactly who committed the crime. In the end, it all tied up nicely. ( )

Go the types in the stick,
They glide with an ominous sound,
As quickly the hand that collects them goes round,
and arranges them firm in the stick.
