    Reading the small Illustrated Classics version of the Hound of the Baskervilles as a kid cemented an early fascination/ fear of bogs, mires, and swamps. Navigating a mystery that is bog adjacent was distracting, as my adult reading sensibilities was sure the mystery had more to it than...

    I read this book as a digital galley courtesy of Penguin?s First to Read program. I didn?t know anything about the Lady Darby series before this book and jumped in with no background on these characters. It was easy to pick up, but did make my pace for the first 100 pages slow. ...

    I have been enchanted with the Lady Darby series since I discovered it several years ago. I never miss a series entry (in fact, the worst part of being a fan is waiting a year or more in between books), and I was thrilled to read A Brush with Shadows, which begins soon after Kiera and ...

    I supposed no matter how old you were, or how long ago your mother had passed, you never stopped wanting her. This is one of my favorite books of the series. Since I'm partial to Gage, I especially enjoyed learning more about his family and past. The mystery aspect was good, but t...

    It?s 1831, and Sebastian Gage and his new bride, Kiera, are returning to his ancestral home on the moors. His cousin has disappeared, and his grandfather has summoned Gage to help in the search. The forbidding house, the swirling misty atmosphere of the moors, and the nuanced charact...

    I've given this a B- at AAR, so that's 3.5 stars rounded up. At the end of As Death Draws Near, the fifth book in Anna Lee Huber?s series of historical mysteries, the recently-wed Lady Darby and her husband, private enquiry agent Sebastian Gage, were urgently summoned to England ?...

    The last Lady Darby book was a little bit of a left down for me. That said, I was eager to see what this book held because I really love Anna Lee Huber?s books, not just the Lady Darby books, but all of her books! The thing that excited me most about this book was the eye catching...

    Dollycas?s Thoughts I have been anxiously awaiting this book after the little teaser the author left us with at the end of As Death Draws Near, but it was definitely worth the wait. Gage takes Kiera to his home, Langstone Manor. A place he hasn?t been since his mother?s dea...

    This series continues to please. This particular installment takes Kiera and Sebastian to Dartmoor, to his family home, because the heir, Alfred, has disappeared. Alfred has a history of a rather nasty relationship with Gage, and Alfred's mother is the frankly not very nice Vanessa. ...

    It's always a pleasure to read about Lady Darby and Sebastian! Here we discover what happened with Sebastian's family. And I liked that we get to know his grandfather, his cusins and his aunt, even if they're not a very likable lot! They all treated Sebastian very badly when he w...

    "The first time I laid eyes on Langstone Manor I could not blame my husband for staying away for over fifteen years." So begins Anna Lee Huber's 6th Lady Darby Mystery. I discovered her Lady Darby series a little over a year ago with the very first, The Anatomist's Wife, and was cap...

    Read this over vacation. Another good installment in this series. I liked this one a bit more than the last one. I have to say the villain surprised me and parts of the ending saddened me. But it was a good read. ...

    The Lady Darby Series continues to be delightful. In this sixth novel, readers get to know Sebastian Gage's family. Gage has been disconnected from them for years, but was asked by his grandfather to return and find his missing cousin. In typical fashion, the scenery and mood come a...

    Dartmoor/Devon is the setting for Anna Lee Huber?s 6th Lady Darby Mystery, A Brush with Shadows, and what a perfect choice for this excellent mystery which is a brilliant addition to the series. I was ?captured? from the first page which pleased me as Devon and Dartmoor are two f...

    I liked how Kiera and Gage were able to work together to solve the mystery, weak as it was. Their show of love for each other was something I missed in the last book. I also liked Gage?s backstory. I didn?t really know what to expect, but I?m glad of the attention it was given, a...

    Yes! We finally get to meet Gage's family and they are as intriguing as I had hoped they would be! He is such an interesting character and the author made his family and his past equally interesting. The description of the moors was absolutely perfect; I felt like I was really there. T...

    4.5 stars Captivating! Huber delivers another masterpiece in her Lady Darby series. I was immediately drawn into the story from the very first sentence. She pens a great mystery, her pacing is impeccable. But it is her descriptive prose of Langstone Manor and the surrounding moors ...

    This one started out super slow for me. I remember thinking at around the 40% mark that perhaps I should let it go.... Then it got interesting all of a sudden. This was a tough read as I adore Gage and revisiting his past with his family was hurtful. My heart ached for the treatment he...
