Reviews

Praise for A Brush with Shadows

"A missing heir, an estranged family, and a possible poisoner add up to a pretty puzzle for two far-from-disinterested sleuths.... Huber draws on the beauties and dangers of the mysterious moorlands to provide a fitting setting for a knotty mystery filled with envy, greed, and thwarted love."--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the Lady Darby Mysteries


"[A] history mystery in fine Victorian style! Anna Lee Huber's spirited debut mixes classic country house mystery with a liberal dash of historical romance."--Julia Spencer-Fleming, New York Times bestselling author

"Riveting...Huber deftly weaves together an original premise, an enigmatic heroine, and a compelling Highland setting."--Deanna Raybourn, New York Times bestselling author

"[A] fascinating heroine...A thoroughly enjoyable read!"--Victoria Thompson, national bestselling author

"Reads like a cross between a gothic novel and a mystery with a decidedly unusual heroine."--Kirkus Reviews

"Set largely in Scotland in 1830, Huber's well-done sequel to 2012's The Anatomist's Wife includes all the ingredients of a romantic suspense novel, starting with a proud and independent heroine...Strong and lively characters as well as believable family dynamics, however, elevate this above stock genre fare."--Publishers Weekly

"[A] clever heroine with a shocking past and a talent for detection."--Carol K. Carr, national bestselling author

"[Huber] designs her heroine as a woman who straddles the line between eighteenth-century behavior and twenty-first-century independence."--New York Journal of Books

"[A] must read...One of those rare books that will both shock and please readers."--Fresh Fiction

"Fascinates with its compelling heroine who forges her own way in a society that frowns upon female independence. The crime itself is well planned and executed. The journey to uncover a killer takes many twists and leads to a surprising culprit."--RT Book Reviews

"One of the best historical mysteries that I have read this year."--Cozy Mystery Book Reviews
