Review

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."--New York Times bestselling author Julia Spencer-Fleming

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

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

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

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

"Huber deftly evokes both [Sebastian and Kiera's] attraction and the period's flavor."--Publishers Weekly

"[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."--Fresh Fiction

"Fascinates with its compelling heroine who forges her own way in a society that frowns upon female independence."--RT Book Reviews

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