November After fleeing London in infamy more than two years prior, Lady Kiera Darby's return to the city is anything but mundane, though not for the reasons she expected. A gang of body snatchers is arrested on suspicion of imitating the notorious misdeeds of Edinburgh criminals, Burke and Hare--killing people from the streets and selling their bodies to medical schools. Then Kiera's past--a past she thought she'd finally made peace with--rises up to haunt her. All of London is horrified by the evidence that "burkers" are, indeed, at work in their city. The terrified populace hovers on a knife's edge, ready to take their enmity out on any likely suspect.
And when Kiera receives a letter of blackmail, threatening to divulge details about her late anatomist husband's involvement with the body snatchers and wrongfully implicate her, she begins to apprehend just how precarious her situation is.

Meanwhile, the young scion of a noble family has been found murdered a block from his home, and the man's family wants Kiera and Gage to investigate.

Huber's grasp of s London, particularly in her use of nuanced social conventions and rich period details, makes this latest in her Lady Darby mysteries another standout tale.
The spirited romance of Kiera and Gage will continue to delight, even as new scandals related to Kiera's past threaten everything the newlyweds have built so far.

For readers, like myself, who consider Kiera and Gage to be dear friends, the high stakes in this immaculately paced mystery will have them biting their nails and firmly on the edge of their seats.
London in the midst of political upheaval and shifting social classes is a gorgeously rendered setting and Huber's pitch-perfect historical research shines on every page. But as with all of Huber's mysteries, it is not just the verisimilitude, Kiera's inimitable and fiercely intelligent narrative nor her deft characterization that establish her as one of the premiere voices in her genre, it is the conviction and heart that motivates her characters and the strong sense of morality that counterbalances even the most sinister of crimes.

But with an overwhelming flock of wedding guests, a muddled cat, an unpaid favor, and a ferocious storm throwing things into disarray, it's anyone's guess whether Kiera and Gage will actually make it to the altar This novella is currently only available in electronic form, but it is not necessary to own an E-reader in order to read it. You can download the Kindle or other E-reader apps to your tablet, smartphone, or computer.
You can also use the Kindle Cloud Reader and read it directly inside your web browser.

But with her well-meaning-and very pregnant-sister planning on making their wedding the event of the season, Kiera could use a respite from the impending madness.
Not only would she write entertaining mysteries, but she would weave historical events into the story and create characters who were changed by the events of the stories. It was published in serial format in St Nicholas in , and later as a book by the Century Company w ho were also the publishers of the St Nicholas Magazine.
Using the Civil War as the historical background, this story established the framework used in many of her best later novels: two young girls exploring a boarded up house, the Collingswood mansion, in New York, discover a long-overlooked letter. It is their determination to uncover the story behind this letter that leads to a reunion in between Mrs Collingswood and her son, both of whom had believed each other dead.
This book, and the next five which appeared, remain among her most appealing novels. The second mystery to be published, The Sapphire Signet illustrates how effective the technique of incorporating a historical mystery into a story of contemporary children can be. This was her most complex serial: it ran for 9 issues in St Nicholas , starting in November — the same month in which her only child, a daughter named Helen Roberta but called Bobbie was born.
After the birth of Bobbie in , Seaman limited her production to one full-length novel, and a few shorter pieces per year. Her next book, The Girl Next Door , was also set in New York City; the story involves missionaries recently returned from China, with the Boxer Rebellion providing the background for the historical mystery.
This is the first of several of her books which returned to the theme of the Lost Dauphin having survived the French Revolution and been smuggled to America; it is also notable for its careful attention to the architecture of the pre-Revolutionary houses which surrounded Paradise Green. As in most of her stories, the events of the real world are significant to the story in this book, while the US is not yet involved, the War is raging in Europe, and near the end of the book, young Louis despite the discovery that he is not, after all, a descendant shawof the Dauphin leaves to enlist in the French Air Service.
Melissa-Across-the-Fence returns to New York City, while her next book, The Slipper Point Mystery , was set in a rural area of New Jersey where she had lived with relatives during part of her childhood.
Art History Mystery Series
The historical mystery in Slipper Point involves the discovery of a tunnel from the river to the house at Slipper Point, a tunnel used by abolitionists to help fugitive slaves. Perhaps Seaman had more influence than she could have imagined — or would have liked. The depiction of German spies i nfiltrating a small country hotel might have been an accurate reflection of the jingoistic spirit of the times but the plot is farfetched, there is no real mystery, and even the setting is given short shrift.
Judgments about the minor characters are based entirely on their national origin — or even just on their appearance. It was about this time that Robert Seaman, her husband, was diagnosed with cancer. Partly for his health, and probably partly to re-inspire her writing, Augusta and Robert began travelling extensively, and several novels reflect their journeys.
The Mystery at Number Six effectively uses one of her most unusual settings: the contrast between an abandoned phosphate mine — Number Six, now an idyllic pool — and an active phosphate mine in central Florida is vividly portrayed. A trip to Bermuda, and a mystery related to the earliest settlers of Bermuda, is the central theme of Sally Simms Adventures It , the first of three novels which appeared in One of the most frequent devices which Seaman uses in her novels is the poor health or illness of a character, varying from inventing ill or dead parents to creating protagonists who themselves suffer a temporary illness or chronic health problems.
It is worth noting the way in which she handles death and sickness: while there might be, and often is, some sadness, this is not allowed to dominate the story. As the only surviving daughter, she surely understood and shared the underlying grief of her father, who lost three wives at a young age, and who saw six of his eight children die as infants or very young.
While her father obviously communicated to her his love of books and history, there must have also been an unspoken sharing of sadness. He had been gassed and wounded during the War in France, and after the end of the war, and the death of his first wife in childbirth, he had spent two years teaching agriculture in Russian Armenia. Phipps, a steel magnate and partner of Andrew Carnegie, had planned to create an expensive resort on this site — one of the last undeveloped stretches of the New Jersey shoreline. Appearing in , this book also marked her change of publishers from Century to the much larger house of Doubleday Doran.
In the spring of , about 6 months before Anne Shaw appeared, Frank and Augusta were married. The Depression put an end to the plans to develop the area, but Frank remained there as superintendent. In , the area was protected by bei ng incorporated as the Borough of Island Beach — with 14 registered voters. Frank became the mayor, fire chief, police chief, and president of the board of education, while Augusta filled the roles of borough treasurer, tax collector and registrar.
While Seaman did much less travelling during this part of her life, she and Frank visited Haiti together, and in she published The Charlemonte Crest. Although her grandfather was actually much older, in the book he is depicted as an infant, smuggled out of Haiti by his black nurse, and the only one of his family to survive.

The Charlemonte Crest was the only one of her novels to be selected by the Junior Literary Guild; in fact, it was the bonus book given to new subscribers, and because of this, it is one of her few titles which are easy to find in hard cover. In addition to the books mentioned above, some of her notable books from this decade included Bitsy Finds the Clue in — set in Williamsburg where her daughter Bobbie was a freshman at William and Mary College — and The Pine Barrens in which is a wonderfu l introduction to a fascinating and unique area in southern New Jersey.
We do not have enough space here to take a close look at all of her novels, but her second mystery, The Sapphire Signet is a good one to analyze more closely. Obviously, when I was a girl, I read this just for the story — but it is fun as an adult to see the allusions and hints hidden within it.
Other themes and techniques which Seaman used consistentl y in her books can be found in The Sapphire Signet also.
The beginning of The Sapphire Signet deliberately echoes Little Women — and just in case you might miss the allusions, the younger, invalid sister is reading Little Women at the beginning of the book. After this early novel, though, the only writer whom Seaman obviously echoed was herself! However, what makes the story most interesting is the way in which the 4 girls — and a younger cousin, a 12 year old boy named Alexander — gradually learn to delve into a mystery which can only be solved by research in old books.
In order to solve the real mystery they also have to find out more about the background of the journal. They learn about the history of the area of New York City in which they live, about the Revolutionary War, and a foiled plot to murder George Washington. While one cannot expect total realism from a juvenile mystery, and coincidences abound in this book, the underlying picture it gives of how a big city changes over time is fascinating, even now reading it as an adult.
