A Brush with Shadows (Lady Darby Mystery #6) Reviews
In this sixth book in the Lady Darby series, Kiera and Gage are summoned by Gage’s maternal grandfather to investigate when his cousin goes missing. Gage’s relationship with that side of his family is strained, and he has not returned to see his relatives since his mother died fifteen years earlier, so the request was both a surprise and one he feels he cannot refuse.
It turns out there is good reason for his long absence and his ill feelings towards the people with whom he grew up. Gage and Kier ...more
I liked how Kiera and Gage were able to work together to solve the mystery, weak as it was. Their show of love for each other was something I missed in the last book. I also liked Gage’s backstory. I didn’t really know what to expect, but I’m glad of the attention it was given, although the murder mystery suffered because of it which didn’t really hold up well and was needlessly wasteful of lives.
It's always a pleasure to read about Lady Darby and Sebastian!
Here we discover what happened with Sebastian's family. And I liked that we get to know his grandfather, his cusins and his aunt, even if they're not a very likable lot!
They all treated Sebastian very badly when he was a child.
Me, as well as Keira, put some blame on is mother's shoulders too!
A nice mistery, even if the culprit is rather unbelievable (view spoiler)[an old man couldn't do what the author made him do! (hide spoiler)]! B ...more
Lady Darby a.k.a. Kiera Gage and her husband Sebastian Gage return to Sebastian's childhood home, Langstone Manor, at the request of his grandfather, Viscount Tavistock, to investigate the disappearance of his cousin Alfred. His family hinders their investigation from the start by either withholding information or misleading them so what should have been an easy inquiry turns in to much more that...
I enjoyed the story but I don't think the author used the Moors and the family curse to its full p ...more

Publication Date: 3/6/18
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 read this book as a digital galley courtesy of Penguin’s First to Read program.
I didn’t know anything about the Lady Darby series before this book and jumped in with no background on these characters. It was easy to pick up, but did make my pace for the first 100 pages slow. Once deep into the mystery, however, I was hooked.
Dartmoor is always a great setting for a mystery, and this one is no different. It’s been eight years since I read Hound of the Baskerville and The Moor, but I think I like ...more
suspense, romance = good ingredients to have a good read on a gloomy and rainy belgian sunday - always a pleasure to have gage and keira back
I have been enchanted with the Lady Darby series since I discovered it several years ago. I never miss a series entry (in fact, the worst part of being a fan is waiting a year or more in between books), and I was thrilled to read A Brush with Shadows, which begins soon after Kiera and Gage's marriage.
Author Anna Lee Huber takes a decidedly gothic turn with this adventure as the couple is called to Langstone Manor, Gage's ancestral home in Dartmoor, England, where his erstwhile cousin has gone mi ...more
