Penny for Your Secrets
Penny for Your Secrets | Anna Lee Huber
8 posts | 5 read | 3 to read
England, 1919. In Anna Lee Huber's latest mystery, former Secret Service agent Verity Kent is finding that life after wartime offers its own share of danger . . . The Great War may be over, but for many, there are still obstacles on the home front. Reconciling with her estranged husband makes Verity sympathetic to her friend Ada's marital difficulties. Bourgeois-bred Ada, recently married to the Marquess of Rockham, is overwhelmed trying to navigate the ways of the aristocracy. And when Lord Rockham is discovered shot through the heart with a bullet from Ada's revolver, Verity fears her friend has made a fatal blunder. While striving to prove Ada's innocence, Verity is called upon for another favor. The sister of a former Secret Service colleague has been killed in what authorities believe was a home invasion gone wrong. The victim's war work--censoring letters sent by soldiers from the front--exposed her to sensitive, disturbing material. Verity begins to suspect these two unlikely cases may be linked. But as the connections deepen, the consequences--not just for Verity, but for Britain--grow more menacing than she could have imagined. Praise for Anna Lee Huber's Treacherous Is the Night "A thrilling mystery that supplies its gutsy heroine with plenty of angst-ridden romance." --Kirkus Reviews "A splendid sequel. . . . Huber combines intricate puzzles with affecting human drama." --Publishers Weekly "Masterful. . . . Just when you think the plot will zig, it zags. . . . Deeply enjoyable." --Criminal Element

Excellent book to start off #Litsypartyofone. A complex mystery that‘s solved in the end but leaves some interesting threads hanging for the next installment. A reminder, too, that not all endings are happy. This series gets better with each book. #MrBook1inaMillion

My Kindle and my morning snack of a mandarin. I‘m trying to finish the tagged book, which I‘m really gonna enjoying, while waiting for the cable service technician to show up 😕 Not keeping a #readathon time, because I know I‘m going to spend a lot of the weekend responding to posts. I‘m already enjoying what you all are sharing. #hostpost

I really wasn‘t going to open this until I finish the book I‘d already started, but my fingers didn‘t cooperate when I had my Kindle open, and now I‘m into this and hooked. That‘s my story, at least 😂

Verify and Sidney are definitely growing on me! I also love that they‘re discussing PTSD, survivor‘s guilt, and losing themselves in alcohol to deal with pain and loss: real things that actually happen. And I‘m glad that they continue to bring in people from Ver & Sid‘s past for them to have to deal with.

The latest edition (#3) in the Verity Kent mystery series set in 1919 England in which we find Verity investigating two seemingly non related murders, one of which a friend is implicated in. The plot turns out to be more complex than first thought (surprise!), and we are introduced to a fiendish villain who appears above the law and will no doubt make future appearances. Some familiar faces are back, and I especially enjoyed getting to know 🔽

robinb Sidney (Verity‘s husband) much better and watch as they continue to strive to heal themselves while rebuilding their marriage. Another great addition to the series! 4/5⭐️ #KensingtonBooks #NetGalley (edited) 1mo
