  • Exciting Post WWI Mystery

    This is another exciting mystery in the Verity Kent series. I think a new reader will enjoy reading this novel and feel caught up with the action by how the author includes background information. But, the reader will enjoy it so much more by having read the series in order. This episode finds Verity and Sidney still on the trail of their nemesis while enjoying Verity's German Great Aunt who has come to visit. She and her German maid are not the most welcome people in post-WWI Britain. Some mysteries are laid to rest, others sprout as if from nowhere. This is an exciting book in an exciting series. I can't wait to read the next book. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.

  • Memoirs of War

    Another great Verity Kent Mystery, I love reading with all the familiar characters. These books are enjoyable to read. I love the way that the fashions are described, the colors of the room, the wallpaper and even the scenery. Verity and Sidney are enjoyed a vacation by the sea when Verity's Great Aunt Ilse appears with her maid Bauer from Germany. Her aunt has been receiving threats and was afraid to stay in Germany. Verity and Sidney decide that because of an investigation they are currently working on it would be safer for her Great Aunt in the country with her parents. It is about coming to terms with death and those lost in the war. So many were damaged by the terrible war and feeling is still high against Germans. This is true even in the small village in Yorkshire. People all grieve differently whether from wounds physical or wounds mental from this war and are broken until they find a way to face them and move forward. Some have a harder time than other's . People are not kind toward Verity's Great Aunt in town showing their dislike of the German's because of their hurts and losses inflicted by the war. They hold all German's responsible, even a frail old woman. This causes some friction and ends in the murder of her Great Aunt Ilse's maid which Verity and Sidney are asked to help investigate and find the killer. Is it a villager, could it be something to do with Verity's time in the service during the war? Was it another member of the domestic staff at her mother's house? It is a very emotional and well written book. A great new mystery which delves into some deep emotional issues. I would recommend this book. Thanks to Anna Lee Huber, Kensington Books, and NetGalley for providing me with a complimentary copy of the book for my honest review.

  • Death of a German maid in rural Yorkshire

    November 1919 and Verity Kent's Great-Aunt Ilse arrives at Verity's home in Kent with her new maid Frau Bauer in tow. Soon stories of strange men accosting Frau Bauer and fears of what Lord Ardmore might do if he found out that Verity's German aunt had come to the UK lead Verity and Sidney to decide it would be best if they all decamp to Verity's parents' home in Yorkshire two weeks earlier than planned. Verity hasn't been home since her brother's death and she has a fraught relationship with her mother, so this is a big sacrifice on her part. Then Isle's maid is found dead and secrets are revealed. Was she murdered by the mysterious stranger she was seen arguing with? Was it Verity's younger sister Grace's new beau who apparently has a 'Blighty wound' which invalided him out of the war? Is it a villager convinced she was a German spy? And what is Aunt Ilse hiding? Although this is yet another well-crafted mystery for Verity and Sidney, the focus of this book is very much on relationships. We learn a lot more about Verity's relationships with the rest of her family, and how each of them has been affected by the war and the death of her brother Rob. In fact, I would happily have read this with no murder at all just because it advanced everything else so much, all those tantalising glimpses into Verity's marriage and her older brother's disapproval are all brought to the surface and it is very satisfying. Also, a personal thanks that the book does not start with Verity and Sidney estranged as seemed to happen with several of the other books. Overall, a great instalment in one of my favourite series and I can't wait for the next one. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

  • The Great War

    I have loved this whole series! This book was probably the 'slowest' in my opinion, but even as the plot seemed to be bogging down, it was very readable and enjoyable. Having said that, I'd say that this wouldn't be the book you'd want to start with in the Verity Kent series. All of the books, and most especially this one, seem to tie into one another. They're better read in order. The author has done her homework for the time period. The Great War is over. There are issues with PTSD, although it's not called that. Family members and others who disagreed with the war. Just so much to take in, and a murder too! Great writing. I can't wait for the next in this series.

  • Historical Mystery Thriller

    Murder Most Fair by Anna Lee Huber is Historical Mystery Thriller Fiction in November 1919. This book is part 5 of the exciting Verity Kent series with murder, mystery, and lingering espionage. Unsettling troubles with family, neighbors and staff just when Verity and Sidney begin to feel on solid ground again. I love the characters with their well defined personalities, emotions and relationships throughout the series. What do all these problems stem from the Great War or a more sinister cause? Could it be an old enemy and will the secret service help her? This book will keep you on the edge and wanting more. This book can be read alone or enjoy it even more by reading the entire series.Well done! I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. I appreciate the opportunity and thank the author and publisher for allowing me to read, enjoy and review this book. 5 Stars
