Publisher's Summary

After her foray into murder investigation, Lady Kiera Darby must journey to Edinburgh with her family so that her pregnant sister can be close to proper medical care. But the city is full of many things Kiera isn't quite ready to face: the society ladies keen on judging her, her fellow investigator (and romantic entanglement) Sebastian Gage, and ultimately, another deadly mystery. Kiera's old friend Michael Dalmay is about to be married, but the arrival of his older brother, William, has thrown everything into chaos. For ten years Will has been missing, committed to an insane asylum by his own father. Kiera is sympathetic, especially when rumors swirl about a local girl gone missing. Now Kiera must once again employ her knowledge of the macabre and join forces with Gage in order to prove the innocence of a beloved family friend.

    "Great second book to a (hopefully) ongoing series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I was hesitant to start this series based on some negative reviews, but I finally broke down and got the first book. I was pleasantly surprised and have now read the first 3 books. All are good, solid entertaining books.

    "Great story, so-so narration"

    I really like this series but I SO wish the author or her agent had selected a better narrator. There is a lot of first-person narration by Lady Darby and this is when the narrator is most annoying and monotonous. The dialog portions are not as bad since she does vary the voices.

    I love Elizabeth Peters, Diane Mott Davidson, Amanda Quick and Jude Deveroux. I Love Barbara Rosenblat. She has made me a Audio Reader. I also like Lisa Scottaline, and Linda Fairstein. I wish Barbara Rosenblat could read for everybody. She is wonderful.

    "Cannot wait until the next one"

    I am really enjoying this series of books. Ms. Huber has a traditional way of forming her books that keep you wondering to the end. I also like her characters.

    "Very enjoyable!"

    Again, another great listen. Starts s little slow, but the character development is good and the story line continues to grow and get better. So enjoy these books.

    "Amazing"

    The plot has good turns one did not suspect and kept you guessing until the big reveal. I loved the first book and the second is a great companion to the series. It doesn't feel like a modern girl in a corset historical but still kept you on your toes.

    She does they all well, allowing the listener to know without hesitation who is speaking. no confusion.

    Yes, Yes, Yes

    "Overall good read and audiobook"

    I enjoyed both the narrator and the characters. This is the second book in the series of Lady Derby. I enjoyed both the touch of mystery and the historical accuracy of the period. I also like the fact that it did not contain foul language or excessive sexual scenes. It was a really good audiobook to listen to and very refreshing. I will continue to listen to the rest of the series and hope to find more books like these!!

    "Loved it!"

    I loved the story AND the narrator! It is nice to be able to listen to a book from this era while I work in the kitchen without being concerned about inappropriate language and content.

    "Good but not great Accents"

    I like these books-- the accents for the Scots could be improved but it's not too bad. Also, there tend to be a lot of characters that get involved and it's hard to keep them straight. A lot of acquaintances and their names are all a melange of aristocracy, it's hard to remember who is a friend or a foe.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    What I didn't like was the reader's drawl.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mortal Arts?

    Hasn't. But I'd follow the characters.


    What three words best describe Heather Wilds’s performance?

    She weaves a good tale. I like her vocabulary.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Her voice was just wasn't to my liking.
