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.


Verity Kent #6

A Certain Darkness

Set in Downton Abbey-era post-war England, and featuring indomitable heroine Verity Kent, this action-packed series from Anna Lee Huber, USA Today bestselling author of the Lady Darby Mysteries, is a treat for fans of Jacqueline Winspear, Susan Ella MacNeal. Historical mystery fans will “savor the intricate plotting and captivating details of the era.” (Library Journal). Britain, in which former Secret Service agent Verity Kent employs her Secret Service skills to investigate a complex murder...

The 1920s are off to an intriguing start, but even as a new decade dawns, the shadow of The Great War persists…

March 1920: Life has turned unsettlingly quiet for former British Intelligence agent Verity Kent and her husband, Sidney. But even that false calm is about to end. As threats remain, the French authorities soon request Sidney’s help with a suspect who claims to have proof of treason—shortly before she is assassinated. And Verity, too, is called to investigate a mystery.

The murder of a Belgian lawyer aboard a train seems at first to be a simple case of revenge. But the victim was connected to British Intelligence, and possessed papers detailing the sinking of a gold-laden German ship during the war.

As Verity and Sidney dig deeper, they discover their cases are intertwined—and a lethal adversary persists. Officially, the Great War may be over, but this is a battle of nerves and wits they cannot afford to lose…
