Anna Lee Huber: The Anatomist's Wife

Ck Huber s work is both intriguing and entertaining Ultimately less convincing than I wanted but a promising debut just the same No expectations going into this one and I absolutely had so much fun with it I can see this series uickly becoming a favorite I loved the mystery the setting and all of the characters I can t wait for I found myself completely immersed within this story that I was surprised when I eached the end I was stuck between being at awed and disappointed that it was over Lucky for for I still had two books to look forward While dealing with subject matters Anna Lee Huber kept the Jacques Prevert reader going with a strong mystery that prompt you to continue even when at times the story did tend to slow You along with Lady Darby and Gage pick up small clues that may lead to one thing or another Lady Kiera Darby was a character that I felt deeply for Stuck in a sort of limbo after the death of her husband who was to put it lightly was a major asshat and put her through hell Thrown into this case breaks her out of her hiding and self imposed cage along with her growingelationship with Sebastian Gage an inuiry agent who confuses and infuriates her Gage started off an an enigma and ended as one with only bits and pieces given I m very curious about him and how he ll developed through the series I uickly picked up the second book of this series and don t mind the lack of sleep this series will no doubt bring me.

A good enough booklikable characters some mystery But it was impossible to care even one fig about the murder victim At the end of the book the murder is solved but the love interest was unreuited and strung out to the next book and Lady Darby is still being shunned by society for the sins of her dead husband That meant to me that there wasn t much point to the story The protagonists both male and female needed to be a lot compelling to overcome the general ho hum of the plotAlso why is it that so many women detectives both amateur and professional go to such lengths to prove they are as smart as men by putting themselves in such severe physical danger that they must be escued by a big strong man for their stupidity Why does just as smart as men always have to mean just as strong just as large and just as skilled with weapons That s just silly 35 starsNot totally satisfied the mystery is too easyThe heroine and hero just okayHm no actually the heroine much better even though she had few stupid momentsBut this is book 1 I expected their characters will improve in the next books because I like the writing and this is not a cozy mystery yup I like that a lot Find this and other eviews at someone please explain why it took me so long to The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume 1: The Pox Party read Anna Lee Huber s The Anatomist s Wife I m trying to come up an excuse an amazing alibi that would explain such an egregious oversight but I ve got nothing You know besides.
