    My eyes are killing me and I have had a headache for TWO days, but I will say it was GLORIOUS to actually R E A D this book [on my computer with the font HUGE - which is disconcerting when you have to go back to regular font - everything looks so tiny]. Oh how I have missed that. I...

    I am a big fan of Ms. Huber's Lady Darby series, but had not read the first book in the Verity Kent series. I didn't feel lost at all reading this one. Though the immediate post-WWI time period is not one I tend to read, Ms. Huber has the ability to make anything interesting! In this s...

    Though it is 1919 and despite the horrendous war and the after effects of it, the position of women seemed roughly unchanged. They took up the challenge,motor to every known occupation available, filled in all the gaps admirably but when the war was over they were expected to go back t...

    Treacherous In The Night is the second book in the Verity Kent Mystery series. I find this historical mystery to be a very enjoyable, well researched and written series. Ms. Huber gives the reader an interesting look at post-WWI Europe. The story begins a few months after the con...

    I've given this a B+ at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars. Treacherous is the Night is the second book in Anna Lee Huber?s latest series of post-WW1 historical mysteries featuring former secret service agent Verity Kent. The events of this story unfold just a few weeks after those of the...

    Full disclosure, I?ve been a huge fan of Anna Lee Huber for years. I absolutely love all of her books and I can?t get enough of the heroines, mysteries, and of course the covers! The Verity Kent series is no different. I read the first book in the Verity Kent series earlier this...

    I don't really know how to review this without spoiling the first book. Anyway, I thought it was even better than the first one. I think I just found a new historical mystery series to squee over. ...

    Note: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review. After the miraculous return of Verity?s husband, Sidney, from the dead, the two of them are working - not all that successfully - on revitalizing and repairing their marriage. When one of her frien...

    Huber sets this series not during WWI, where her heroine undertook dangerous missions for British intelligence in Belgium, but in the aftermath--as disgruntled refugees blame the British for their destroyed villages and prison time, badly behaved tourists flock to grim battlefields, de...

    It is 1919, and the shadows of World War I still loom in this superb second installment in the Verity Kent Mystery Series. TREACHEROUS IS THE NIGHT follows Verity and her ?resurrected? husband Sydney as they face ghosts from the war in an attempt to save their marriage and decipher...

    This is an interesting post-war mystery. I had a difficult time with the heroine though. Verity was just a little too bitter and prickly for me. I understand why she's that way - she had a difficult job during the war, believed herself to be a widow, coped with it as best she could man...

    Strong second book in the Verity Kent series. In the last book, Verity discovered that her husband Sidney, whom she?d been told over a year earlier was dead, was still very much alive. After the ripples from that discovery and its associated investigation start dying down, Verity ...

    This is the second book of the Verity Kent Mystery Saga. Being a post WWI book deals with the aftermath of The Great War and gives tribute to the silent fighters, those who worked in intelligence services for the allies. Most novels that I have come across about WWI emphasized much on ...

    5+ stars!! Ms. Huber has penned another fabulous mystery in this series. She has demonstrated great skill as she writes in a new setting that is roughly 90 years later than her popular Lady Darby series. Many authors are not able to adapt from one setting to another as successfully...

    Treacherous is the Night is an amazing piece of historical fiction. Not only does it provide insight into the changing role of women after WWI, it doesn?t shy from discussing the effects of time in the trenches on soldiers or from portraying the callous ?patriotism? of those no...
