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
