    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 ?...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    "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...

    I finished this book with a contented sigh and anticipation for the next book in the Lady Darby series. Anna Lee Huber has done a marvelous job guiding fans of Kiera and Gage through a series of mysteries, near death experiences, friendship turning to something more, marriage, and now ...

    This was my least favourite of the series by far. It was really boring. I'm pretty sure it's a case of "it's not you, it's me" since there seem to be many other reads who adore this series as a whole. However, I do not, as a general rule, enjoy stories told from the first person point ...

    Mysterious landscapes! Pasts and present collide! What a dynamic duo! Sebastian Gage and his wife, Lady Kiera Darby. As they move forward in their life together Sebastian is called back to the family estate, Langstone Manor, deep in the landscape of Dartmoor. His father is still his...

    Lady Darby a.k.a. Kiera Gage and her husband Sebastian Gage return to Sebastian's childhood home, Langstone Manor, at the request of his grandfather, Viscount Tavistock, to investigate the disappearance of his cousin Alfred. His family hinders their investigation from the start by eith...

    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...

    Series: Lady Darby Mystery #6 Publication Date: 3/6/18 Fifteen years ago, at the age of eighteen, Sebastian Gage walked away from Langstone Manor and swore he?d never return. Now, it is in view, as cold and brooding as the moors on which it sits. Every nerve in Sebastian?s body...

    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...

    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 ...

    I really enjoyed the mystery in this one. It was full of questions and misdirection as they try to discover if there really is a "family curse" that goes back for generations. Gage and Kiera are called back to Gage's childhood home when his grandfather asks them to come find out wh...

    In this sixth book in the Lady Darby series, Kiera and Gage are summoned by Gage?s maternal grandfather to investigate when his cousin goes missing. Gage?s relationship with that side of his family is strained, and he has not returned to see his relatives since his mother died fift...

    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...

    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...

    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 really enjoyed the mystery in this one. It was full of questions and misdirection as they try to discover if there really is a "family curse" that goes back for generations. Gage and Kiera are called back to Gage's childhood home when his grandfather asks them to come find out wh...

    In this sixth book in the Lady Darby series, Kiera and Gage are summoned by Gage?s maternal grandfather to investigate when his cousin goes missing. Gage?s relationship with that side of his family is strained, and he has not returned to see his relatives since his mother died fift...

    This was my least favourite of the series by far. It was really boring. I'm pretty sure it's a case of "it's not you, it's me" since there seem to be many other reads who adore this series as a whole. However, I do not, as a general rule, enjoy stories told from the first person point ...

    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 ?...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    "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...

    I finished this book with a contented sigh and anticipation for the next book in the Lady Darby series. Anna Lee Huber has done a marvelous job guiding fans of Kiera and Gage through a series of mysteries, near death experiences, friendship turning to something more, marriage, and now ...

    This was my least favourite of the series by far. It was really boring. I'm pretty sure it's a case of "it's not you, it's me" since there seem to be many other reads who adore this series as a whole. However, I do not, as a general rule, enjoy stories told from the first person point ...

    Mysterious landscapes! Pasts and present collide! What a dynamic duo! Sebastian Gage and his wife, Lady Kiera Darby. As they move forward in their life together Sebastian is called back to the family estate, Langstone Manor, deep in the landscape of Dartmoor. His father is still his...

    A Brush with Shadows is the sixth book in the Lady Darby series. In this installment, Kiera and Gage travel to Dartmoor to investigate the disappearance of Gage's cousin, Alfred. Kiera and the readers get to meet many new characters, Sebastian's maternal relatives, including his grandf...

    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...

    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 ...

    I really enjoyed the mystery in this one. It was full of questions and misdirection as they try to discover if there really is a "family curse" that goes back for generations. Gage and Kiera are called back to Gage's childhood home when his grandfather asks them to come find out wh...

    In this sixth book in the Lady Darby series, Kiera and Gage are summoned by Gage?s maternal grandfather to investigate when his cousin goes missing. Gage?s relationship with that side of his family is strained, and he has not returned to see his relatives since his mother died fift...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    "Its never easy to confront the demons of our past." (quote from the book) A Brush with Shadows opens in July 1831 in Dartmoor, England at the ancestral home of Sebastian Gage's mother. The title is very apt and very telling. "As beautiful as the landscape was purported to be, ...

    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...

    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 ...

    Anna Lee Huber is one of my favorite authors and I have read all her books, from Lady Darby Mysteries to Gothic Mysteries to, more recently, Verity Kent. Her character creation is unmatched and draw you in to the mystery and the lives of the protagonists. At about the same time as I...
