Treacherous Is the Night | Anna Lee Huber

"My favorite new mystery series!" --Alyssa Maxwell, USA Today bestselling author In 1919 England, in the shadow of The Great War, many look to the spirit world for answers. But it will take an all too earthbound intrigue to draw in the discerning heroine of Anna Lee Huber's latest mystery . . . It's not that Verity Kent doesn't sympathize with those eager to make contact with lost loved ones. After all, she once believed herself a war widow. But now that she's discovered Sidney is very much alive, Verity is having enough trouble connecting with her estranged husband, never mind the dead. Still, at a friend's behest, Verity attends a seance, where she encounters the man who still looms between her and Sidney--and a medium who channels a woman Verity once worked with in the Secret Service. Refusing to believe her former fellow spy is dead, Verity is determined to uncover the source of the spiritualist's top secret revelation. Then the medium is murdered--and Verity's investigation is suddenly thwarted. Even Secret Service agents she once trusted turn their backs on her. Undaunted, Verity heads to war-torn Belgium, with Sidney by her side. But as they draw ever closer to the danger, Verity wonders if she's about to learn the true meaning of till death do us part . . . Praise for the debut Verity Kent Mystery "Sure to please fans of classic whodunits and lovers of historical fiction alike." --Jessie Crockett, author of Whispers Beyond the Veil "Suspenseful, atmospheric, and beautifully written." --Ashley Weaver, author of the Amory Ames Mysteries

Post WWI, Verity Kent is still coming to terms with the reappearance of her husband. A war bride, she & Sidney had little time together until he went off to war and was thought dead. Now, as they reconnect, secrets from Verity's war efforts are coming back to haunt her. As she & Sidney race to uncover the truth, they learn that the past is very much present and they need to confront what happened to both solve the mystery and save their marriage.

I am a huge fan of this author, and I find her character Verity Kent, the protagonist of this series, fascinating. The start of this book was somewhat slow, as there was more emphasis on her marital relationship than the mystery. Once the emphasis changed (and there are reasons why the relationship is important, so I‘m not discounting that), it became difficult to put the book down. Looking forward to the next in the series. 4.5 ⭐️

It wasn‘t a treacherous night, but there was no reading time while I was volunteering at the botanical garden. First time we‘ve done a holiday garden of lights, and it‘s gorgeous. Pictures do not do it justice, though not for lack of trying 😄

tammysue Would love to see it. I bet it‘s amazing! 13mo

Any Anna Lee Huber fans out there??

Her second installment of the Verity Kent historical mystery series is on Kindle sale TODAY ONLY for $2.99. Third in series (Penny for Your Secrets) won‘t be out until next fall.

If you love historical mysteries and haven‘t tried Huber yet...both this series and her Lady Darby series are wonderful! ❤️😊

Lynnsoprano I‘m reading this now. The series is good, although I prefer Lady Darby. But Verity is an interesting character. 13mo
robinb @Lynnsoprano I agree...Lady Darby is still tops for me, too. But Verity is growing on me...😉😁 13mo

By South Florida standards, it‘s a cool afternoon. Poor hubby caught my cold. The result is an afternoon spent with our books and Earl Grey.

AmyG Feel better. 14mo
Lynnsoprano @AmyG Thanks. I‘m pretty much over it, except for a lingering cough. I was hoping my husband wouldn‘t catch it, but no such luck. 14mo
gradcat @Lynnsoprano I feel you over here in Louisiana...finally getting over a cold after about 10 days, and I never get colds (until now, obviously). It‘s was 38 degrees this morning! 😳 14mo
Texreader Books and hot tea. Sounds lovely. Hoping that got you both through the bad stuff 14mo

Can‘t believe it‘s taken me this long to start the newest book by one of my favorite authors.

JazzFeathers How are you liking it? I bailed 1/3 through 😶 1y
SaraRosett @jazzfeathers Finally finished it. It took me a while. Life got busy and the story didn‘t grip me. I thought the characters‘ attitude toward bereaved families going on tours of the battlefields and cemeteries in Europe was a bit harsh. I can understand how it might bring closure. Not sure why the characters looked down on families who took the tours. 14mo
JazzFeathers @SaraRosett Yeah, the main characters' attitude toward the war, Veterans and people trying to cope was one of the things that put me off. I find the psychological not very realistic (not to mention sympathetic). The heaviness of the romance wasn't for me too, but l could have endured it if the historical environment had been more understanding. 14mo

Work has been so busy and tiring that l'm ready only sparingly lately.
This one is enjoyable enough, but not one of those books l can't put down.
About 30% in.

Mehso-so

While Verity is again likable and compelling in this entry, I struggled to like this read. I‘m not a big fan of Sidney, and he is in most of this book. I found this mystery to be a bit confusing and have too many extra characters, but I still enjoyed the setting and the character of Verity, so I‘m torn on this one. I voluntarily reviewed an eARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

I enjoyed this second in series but maybe not quite as much as the first. This one resolved the love triangle from the first one (a “dead” husband and a new interest) and had Verity back home in London after her first adventure at Umbersea Island. While this one provided some in-depth looks at WW1/Secret Service and a locale change to Belgium, it was not quite as interesting as meeting Verity and solving the subsequent mystery of the first. 4/5⭐️

I have been blessed recently with the opportunity to get ahold of some of my favorite series‘ next ventures...such as this one! ❤️ This is the second book (out September 25) in the Verity Kent series. Huber has become one of my favorite historical mystery authors. If you haven‘t read her, I highly recommend her Lady Darby series as well.
