A Brush with Shadows (Lady Darby Mystery #6) Reviews
"The first time I laid eyes on Langstone Manor I could not blame my husband for staying away for over fifteen years."
So begins Anna Lee Huber's 6th Lady Darby Mystery. I discovered her Lady Darby series a little over a year ago with the very first, The Anatomist's Wife, and was captivated by the beauty of her writing. I was able to read the first few one right after the other. There is also a novella.
Sebastian Gage reluctantly goes back to his childhood home in Dartmoor at the urgent request of ...more
I have been anxiously awaiting this book after the little teaser the author left us with at the end of As Death Draws Near, but it was definitely worth the wait.
Gage takes Kiera to his home, Langstone Manor. A place he hasn’t been since his mother’s death 15 years ago. His grandfather has summoned him to get there as fast as possible but the trip from Ireland took a little time. They arrive to find the Viscount Tavistock, deathly ill and his heir, Gage’s cousin, Alfred missing ...more

Fifteen years ago, at the age of eighteen, Sebastian Gage walked away from Langstone Manor and swore he’d never return. Now, it is in view, as cold and brooding as the moors on which it sits. Every nerve in Sebastian’s body is singing and the tension in the coach is palpable. He certainly didn’t want to return, but here he is, all because his grandfather sent him a missive asking him to come and investigate his cousin’s disappearance. He almos ...more
I've given this a B- at AAR, so that's 3.5 stars rounded up.
At the end of As Death Draws Near, the fifth book in Anna Lee Huber’s series of historical mysteries, the recently-wed Lady Darby and her husband, private enquiry agent Sebastian Gage, were urgently summoned to England – specifically, to Gage’s family home at Langstone Manor in Dartmoor. Gage’s cousin, Alfred, heir to their grandfather, Viscount Tavistock, has gone missing, and the elderly and ailing viscount wants Gage to find him.
Anna Lee Huber is one of my favorite authors and I have read all her books, from Lady Darby Mysteries to Gothic Mysteries to, more recently, Verity Kent. Her character creation is unmatched and draw you in to the mystery and the lives of the protagonists.
At about the same time as I started reading A Brush with Shadows, it came to light that a dear family member has a serious illness. The worries and her care, slowed down my reading of Anna's book, and perhaps color my review.
In the other Lady Da ...more
This series continues to please. This particular installment takes Kiera and Sebastian to Dartmoor, to his family home, because the heir, Alfred, has disappeared. Alfred has a history of a rather nasty relationship with Gage, and Alfred's mother is the frankly not very nice Vanessa.
Anna Lee Huber gives more than a passing nod to ACD's The Hound of the Baskervilles in this one. It's probably impossible for a mystery author to set a mystery on Dartmoor without doing so - and the moor's atmospheric ...more
Dartmoor/Devon is the setting for Anna Lee Huber’s 6th Lady Darby Mystery, A Brush with Shadows, and what a perfect choice for this excellent mystery which is a brilliant addition to the series. I was ‘captured’ from the first page which pleased me as Devon and Dartmoor are two favorite places of mine! Kiera, Lady Darby, and her recently wed husband, Sebastian Gage, are summoned to Langstone Manor, Gage’s childhood home which he has not visited in 15 years, by Gage’s grandfather, Viscount Tavist ...more
