Anna Lee Huber is the author of the popular "Lady Darby" historical mysteries. This new series moves the time period to post WWI. Her narrator, Verity Kent, is a young widow who is still grieving the death of husband, Captain Sidney Kent. A lively mystery with plenty of surprises - some of them coming from our heroine. Huber likes describing the clothes, the décor, the atmosphere...but the pace is good & she doesn't skimp on a strong plot and a surprising twist or two.
