Murder Most Fair (A Verity Kent Mystery)
Murder Most Fair by Anna Lee Huber takes up Verity’s story on the first anniversary of the Armistice, November 1919. Verity and her husband return to her home and family, where she must finally deal with the death of her brother. She is joined there unexpectedly by her German Great Aunt Ilse, who also brings her maid Fraulein Bauer. As is to be expected, anti-German sentiments are quickly on display among the staff and townspeople, and when the pretty maid turns up dead, chaos ensues.
As with all the Verity Kent novels, this one must be read in its place in the series for the reader to keep up. I have honestly not always been enamored with Verity or Sidney and didn’t fully buy into their relationship; however, in this novel, she finally seems to make them more believable as a couple for me. Unlike the previous novels, Verity finally comes to terms with some of the emotional baggage she has been carrying and lets Sidney, and everyone else for that matter, fully into her heart and psyche. Perhaps because we see deeper personal relationships among the characters we have become so invested in, I find this novel much better than any of the others.
