Depicting a Victorian setting in Old England was the perfect backdrop for Miss Mae’s Murder Mystery Romance of “See No Evil, My Pretty Lady”. Set in the early 20th century around the time of Jack the Ripper murders. Even though reference is made about him the story only generalizes on the possibility he is the culprit. I was not sure how a romance would enter this story line. Only recently listening to another authors work and it worked into her story. Miss Mae made it work for her as well. The story had me from the start right to the end in a single listen to! No breaks! Kept me right into the story like I was watching a movie.

Plot: Starting with the basic plot of the story as it opens up in that foggy night scene we are all too familiar with these types of English mysteries. The first main character that the story surrounds is Dorcy Edwards, kitchen maid. A reluctantly shy girl that comes running through the streets from her new employer Mr. Davenport, to whom she has found dead. While running to get away, someone reaches out and tries to strangle her. Maybe the murderer to silence what she has just discovered? Or could it be Jack the Ripper? Scratching her way from his grip she ends up at her patron’s home that help her acquire the job as kitchen maid for Mr. Davenport. When one of them was coming home finding her on the doorstep. Bringing her in from the fog. What good timing for Dorcy. Or is it? As she is wrapped and seated by the fire comes a knock at the door. Entering the second main character, Gareth Davenport, heir to the estate of the recently murdered man. Was he the murderer or was he just here visiting old friends as he so leads to make all believe? Dorcy does not let her guard down while telling her account of her events.

I am a fan of Miss Mae's work after listening to Ahoy Gum Drop on audio book. When I found out that she had a who-dun-it also on audio, I was intrigued and downloaded a copy. I am glad I did, because I LOVED it!

The story is narrated by Marcus Hyde. He did an impressive job in bringing this story and characters to life. His speaking voice was clear and concise and his interpretation of the characters mannerisms and affectations came across strongly. His villain's voice sent shiver's down my spine! I don't think I would like to meet that character in a dark alley!

Dorcy Edwards is a wonderful character. I liked her very much She is a young lady who has only recently been employed as a kitchen maid to Mr. Davenport. After finding him murdered, she flees the house and finds herself thrown into a maelstrom of mystery, suspense and danger. Oh, and a hint of romance!

This is a relatively short story, lasting only four hours and thirty-four minutes, but there is a lot happening in that time! It is packed with suspense, mystery and danger, with the glimmer of a chance at romance for the main character. This story is set in London, during the time of Jack The Ripper in 1888. The story is told from the point of view of Dorcy Edwards. There are several interesting characters in this intriguing tale. Mr. & Mrs. Butterfield, the couple who sponsored Dorcy when she first arrived in London. Mr. Garath Davenport - the son of the murdered man - who makes Dorcy's heart flutter, but he has secrets of his own. Can she trust him? And Alice, another maid from Mr. Davenport's house.
This is an excellent who-dun-it. The plot is wonderfully described in such detail. I could picture the scenes with clarity. I loved the way the story unfolded.

it's amazing how the author's writing and the narrator's voice synchronize in this spine-tingling suspense set in London. Every inflection, tone of voice, and emotion fits that particular character to a tee. To the point that every character is easy to distinguish throughout the book. It's as if author and narrator collaborated on the project as the book was written, sentence by sentence.

On to the story. Who is the murderer?" Miss Mae keeps the tension on a tightrope, throwing suspicion onto one character after another, until your head spins. I thought, "It's Felicity's husband. She put him up to it." Then, I thought, "No, it's the maid, Alice. She had a good reason. Who could blame her?" But what about Gareth, the victim's son? He had the most to gain." Next, I suspected the detective from Scotland Yards might be the culprit. On and on, until I was grasping at straws. Every character had a motive. So who?

Don't look at me. I'm not spilling the beans. Why would I spoil a perfectly good story? You wil have to read it for yourself. I will warn you; the tension builds and builds until it reaches a climax. Your jaw will drop at the end. Count on it.

If you enjoy Sherlock Holmes' stories and movies, this is the book for you. "See No Evil, My Pretty Lady," is wonderully written by Miss Mae and perfectly narrated by Marcus Hyde. You will LOVE this audio book.

So, download it, get a cup of hot chocolate, then curl up on the sofa to relax and listen.
