  • Enjoyable

    This is an interesting novel with a good storyline but it suffers a little from a few usages that are inconsistent. The one that sticks out most clearly is the substitution of "passed" for "died" in a book set just after WWI. This euphemism is a fairly recent, last 30+ years, addition. Nevertheless, the book is enjoyable.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Historical Mystery Thriller

    Penny for Your Secrets (A Verity Kent Mystery Book 3) by Anna Lee Huber is a Historical Mystery set in 1919 England. Verity was a Secret Service Agent in the Great War. This book continues with her adventures, mysteries and romance. I love a great series that builds on past experiences of exciting characters with each new book. Historical facts and small details including the colors of clothing add so much to this book. The murders, motives, plots, witnesses and suspects are elements that keep the reader involved. Verity and husband Sidney must search for information to find the killer or killers. Were the murders committed because of love affairs and marriages gone wrong or to hide criminal activity. It’s never who you think it is, it could be almost anyone. Ms. Hubers writing has a flow that makes her books a pleasing read. I have enjoyed each book and series Ms. Huber has written but I find the Verity Kent series especially thrilling. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley. 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

  • Excellent read!

    post-WW1, historical-fiction, historical-research, cosy-mystery, PTSD, survivor's guilt, war-is-hell, murder-investigation, England The first thing to know is that the author has done an excellent job of filling the reader in on the relevant past, so you never feel like you've missed something important (but it did make me hunt up the earlier books because I really liked the characters!). Sidney and Verity have been married for five years but spent most of the time apart because of the war, so those problems are a large part of the plot. Included in that aspect is, (1919, eleven months after the Armistice) that Verity spent much of that time working in the Intelligence Division. Enhanced her detective ability but made for some problems in home life considering the time as well as Sidney's expected post war issues. At a party, a rather dramatic friend is beyond tipsy and makes some peculiar statements about her husband while brandishing a pistol. But in the morning, said husband is found shot to death in his home office and Verity's friend is the chief suspect. Let the sleuthing begin! Plot twists, red herrings, and misdirection follow including negative involvement by someone in Naval Intelligence. Excellent read with good insights into PTSD and survivor's guilt as well as good research into social problems of the day. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • Great

    I enjoy the writing of Anna Lee Huber. Her characters are so real you can see them and you are never sure until near the end who is the real culprit.
