The Anatomist's Wife
The Anatomist's Wife | Anna Lee Huber
Scotland, 1830. Following the death of her husband, Lady Darby has taken refuge at her sisters estate, finding solace in her passion for painting. But when her hosts throw a house party for the cream of London society, Kiera is unable to hide from the ire of those who believe her to be as unnatural as her husband, an anatomist who used her artistic talents to suit his own macabre purposes. Kiera wants to put her past aside, but when one of the house guests is murdered, her brother-in-law asks her to utilize her knowledge of human anatomy to aid the insufferable Sebastian Gagea fellow guest with some experience as an inquiry agent. While Gage is clearly more competent than she first assumed, Kiera isnt about to let her guard down as accusations and rumors swirl. When Kiera and Gages search leads them to even more gruesome discoveries, a series of disturbing notes urges Lady Darby to give up the inquiry. But Kiera is determined to both protect her family and prove her innocence, even as she risks becoming the next victim

When a house party goes terribly wrong, Lady Darby must help to investigate, thanks to the knowledge she acquired with her late husband. This mystery is another enjoyable historical, feisty-female-protagonist one, and I‘m looking forward to many more mysteries with Lady Darby.

+2 for a mystery

This book was so good! Lady Darby is smart and clever and doesn‘t quit until she‘s certain the mystery is solved. I kept wanting her and Gage to have a sexy moment and had to remind myself it wasn‘t that type of book. Apparently I read too many historical romances! This is set in Scotland in the 1800s in a castle, but this is definitely a mystery!

SquiBella Historical fiction without romance? 😱 What kind of nonsense is this? 😂 Jk, but I‘m sure I would be thinking the same thing! 9mo

Okay, friends, I‘m in challenge planning mode (AKA My Happy Place). I plan to participate in both the #ReadingWomenChallenge and #Booked2019.

I want to fully commit to the “New to You Author” prompt, so I need your suggestions, please. Anyone you‘ve read and loved who is typically under the radar? The more ideas, the better!

mreads I'm doing both of these challenges too. Two books I read recently that were great were Scribe by Alyson Hagy and Dog Symphony by Sam Munson. 12mo
saresmoore @mreads Thank you! Those are both new to me. I‘m really looking forward to the challenges. 12mo
AmyG Read The Heart‘s Invisible Furies. It‘s that good. 12mo

Moray_Reads I'm doing both too, though the likelihood I finished either is remote! I recommend (assuming they're new to you!) Helen Sedgwick (particularly The Comet Seekers), Mikhail Shishkin (The Light and the Dark), Zoe Gilbert (Folk), Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir (Hotel Silence), Keri Hulme (The Bone People), Heinrich Böll (Group Portrait with Lady or Lost Honour or Katherina Blum) and Jess Kidd (Himself). 12mo
saresmoore @AmyG Will do! All three of those Irish authors have been on my TBR for too long, but I will certainly take your recommendation! 12mo
saresmoore Moray, I knew I could count on you! ♥️ They are all new to me, and I actually own The Light and the Dark because of your endorsement. I‘m adding all these to the TBR, now! @Moray_Reads 12mo
Moray_Reads @saresmoore well, that is one of the best books I have ever read, as is Group Portrait with Lady but I've loved all of these and can heartily recommend them. Some might work for other prompts! 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m doing both of those challenges in 2019 also, @saresmoore and @mreads Thanks for posting this question. So many options ... 12mo
Hestapleton I SUPER love SINGING THE BONES TOGETHER by Angela Shannon (not on the Litsy database). Only four reviews on Goodreads but I met the poet during undergrad and I loved her work. 12mo

saresmoore @LeahBergen Oh! How do I keep forgetting about her? I mean, at the very least, I really ought to purchase a pretty edition... 12mo

An entertaining start to the series featuring Lady Darby. Fleeing London after the death of her husband & the scandalous aftermath, Kiera Darby takes up residence with her sister‘s family content to paint & hide away from the world in their Highland home. When a weekend house party turns deadly, Kiera is asked to help Sebastian Gage investigate the crime. A solid historical mystery that gives you plenty of reason to read the sequel. A fun read.

I stayed up too late last night finishing this! Good suspense and atmosphere, with an interesting protoganist back-story. Our heroine, a widow, was forced by her late husband to illustrate his dissections, leading to her being vilified as an "unnatural" woman. I did guess who dunnit before the big reveal, but not till pretty late in the game.

Y‘all I was not expecting to love this. I bought this cause of the cover thinking meh at least it‘s pretty. But #Gageira is like my new thing. I finished it at 2am this morning, got up at 9am and immediately rushed to the bookstore for book 2. In cross comparison, this is no Veronica Stoker (Ha! See what I did there 😉), but it‘s definitely the cozy mystery I was hoping for!

DNF. It's not bad or anything but after reading other things a couple nights in a row, I feel no inclination to get back to it. It was heavier on the burgeoning romance plotline than the mystery and I'd have preferred it the other way around.

I enjoyed this historical murder mystery set in a Scottish castle. A young noblewoman is murdered during a house party and evidence points to the host's sister in law , Kiera . As an anatomist's wife and illustrator, Kiera finds herself unjustly accused of the gruesome killing. Naturally she must solve the crime and flirt a bit with the handsome Mr Gage.

First in a series.... Both elegantly written and read! This was a combo of reading and audio listening for me.. a beautiful experience that leaves you feeling delighted, a delicious banquet full of exceptional and outrageously snobbish high in the instep characters, high society at it's worst and best with a murder mystery that's quite clever thrown in! Next!
