Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Anna Lee Huber!
Anna Lee Huber writes novels that explore the mysteries of the past and the secrets of the heart. Her award-winning historical mystery series are intricately researched, beautifully written, and filled with twists and turns; but a rich and nuanced portrayal of human relationships lies at the heart of the stories. Her Verity Kent series takes place after the Great War and features a former British intelligence agent and her dashing war-hero husband, Sidney, who are working to rebuild their marriage after four years of separation and the heartbreak of a world war. Unfortunately, the intrigue doesn’t end with the armistice, and they find themselves ever drawn into murderous inquiries that not only threaten their friends and allies, but also the world’s fragile peace.
USA Today bestselling author, Anna Lee Huber, was born and raised, and currently resides in the Great Lakes. She is a mother, a musician, a children’s choir director, a cat-lover, and a chaos organizer. She enjoys reading, traveling, riding her bike, cross-stitching, and impromptu dance parties. Some of her favorites include chai tea, treats flavored with either lemon or pumpkin (not at the same time), maps, autumn, and boots.
What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match:
- Loves multilayered, compelling mysteries with a liberal splash of romance
- Has a soft spot for dashing but damaged heroes
- Roots for gutsy, intelligent female investigators
- Enjoys atmospheric settings and lush prose
- Appreciates fiction that not only remembers history but also feels it
What to expect if we're compatible:
- A cast of characters who are real and compelling
- To want to sink into the pages and disappear, at least for an hour or two
- To develop a new book crush
- To start googling to learn more about the fascinating and sometimes shocking history captured in its pages
- To find yourself inhaling the rest of the series to find out what happens next.
