I enjoy Anna Lee Huber’s writing (very much liked her previous series). This is new, presumably the beginning of a new series?
Plot is quite well-woven, with many characters that she distinguishes well so the listener can keep up. The story features a young war widow, Verity Kent, who receives an odd invitation to attend an engagement party on Umbersea Island. Officers from her deceased husband’s unit are gathering, along with some single young women, at one person’s home there. She (rightly) feels uncomfortable as mysterious things and murder start to occur as soon as she arrives.
Story is good, characters interesting, mystery good—I didn’t figure out till very end. If only Ms. Huber would find a different narrator. I would have given the entire thing more stars with someone else reading it.

I gave this 2 stars because I couldn't finish. It was impossible to ignore the narrator's lack of inflection and odd pauses. Put those two things together and I couldn't even concentrate on the storyline. I have listened to all of Ms. Huber's books but for some reason this time Ms. Wilde was worse than usual. I plan to get the kindle version and read it for myself so I don't miss this story altogether. Have to say, worst narration I've encountered in a long time!!!
