In this delightful novella from the national bestselling author of A Study in Death, Lady Kiera Darby has one last mystery to solve before she can walk down the aisle...
Scotland, 1831. With her wedding to fellow investigator Sebastian Gage only a day away, Kiera is counting down the hours. But just when matrimonial jitters threaten to consume her, Kiera receives a welcome distraction in the form of a mysterious gold necklace.
The Celtic torc, thought missing for decades, was directly involved in a recent investigation. Now, Kiera feels compelled to uncover the truth behind its sudden reappearance.
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...
Includes an exclusive preview of the next Lady Darby Mystery, As Death Draws Near

Cute and happy gives back ground to characters and closes story arcs

Usually novellas feel unsatisfying, but A Pressing Engagement was wonderful. For fans of the series, it is a treat to see Kiera and Gage get ready for their wedding. They still manage to puzzle out a quick mystery or two before the big day, though, and stay true to their characters. I'm looking forward to their next adventure.

An author friend recommended Anna Lee Huber's 'Lady Darby Mysteries' to me late last summer. Since she already had 4 out, I had the pleasure of reading them one right after the other. Now comes the long awaited novella with Kiera and Gage's wedding. I loved every moment and it seemed more like a full book than a novella. Lady Kiera Darby discovered that, besides being a very talented artist, she has a distinct knack for crime solving. Sebastian Gage, inquiry agent, is reluctantly forced to admit to himself that she is indeed quite good at what she does. So they work together solving crimes, becoming more than just partners, eventually falling in love and now, marriage. Anna Lee Huber is a very talented writer. Her historical research is awesome and her descriptions of everything in her books is enormously interesting. Her characters leap to life on the pages and the books are riveting from the first page! I love them. If you enjoy historical mysteries, look no further. Anna Lee Huber is the author to watch. Her books are clean, too. And...she has a full length novel due in July, 'Death Draws Near' featuring the newlyweds Gage and Kiera. I can't wait! I've preordered already.
