In this short story, Vicky is introduced to Oxford and quickly shuffled off campus as not to embarrass the Dean. She finds a new roommate, Candice, and decides it is her duty to find her a boyfriend. Because "I'd so make an awesome matchmaker!" She inadvertently succeeds in her own hyper-loveable fashion. We also learn some of the reasons behind her dichotomy of genius and scatterbrained personality, and the reason she left her friends and family to attend Oxford.
This is set in the same world as Music of the Soul but is a standalone story.
The Misadventures of Victoria Davenport is short story taste of the hyper and loveable blonde Einstein, Vicky from A Deafening Whisper, and highlights her arrival in England to begin her Oxford years.

Victoria Davenport the ADHD genius and the most entertaining character in the book A Deafening Whisper is back. Because I'm a woman with too much imagination and too much time to indulge it, I have a list of characters from my favorite lesbian romance novels that I'm in love with and Vicky is so totally on it. I've had a couple of friends at separate times in my life who possessed that same type of life force; the type of person that improves your day, any day they're a part of it. Like any of us who ever attended a four year college, suffering through at least occasional academic condescension from stuffy fossils with tenure it was always sweet when a student could take them down. I loved it when Vicky displayed her idetic memory to the dean and a stuffy professor.
The author does take a couple of lazy shortcuts with catchphrases that had already been overused in DW. Her roommate is a bit one dimensional but adds a character by which she can show off a side of herself that stood front and center in Deafening Whisper. Great buy.

Beautiful story, But Very Sad.
Just hearing Hollie Jackson keeps in seat even in the saddest parts. Erik went to the dark side for this story of broken singer that they never let heal even a little. There was no sunshine for the singer who's life finely ends with all blinds pulled back in hospices dying of Cancer telling her last story. Told only as Miss Jackson can weave one. This one in tears.
