Book Review – The Cairo Curse

The Cairo Curse

by Pepper Basham

Clue meets Indiana Jones with a fiction-loving twist only Grace Percy can provide.
Newlyweds Lord and Lady Astley have already experienced their fair-share of suspense, but when a honeymoon trip takes a detour to the mystical land of Egypt, not even Grace with her fiction-loving mind is prepared for the dangers in store. From an assortment of untrustworthy adventure-seekers to a newly discovered tomb with a murderous secret, Frederick and Grace must lean on each other to navigate their dangerous surroundings. As the suspects mount in an antiquities’ heist of ancient proportions, will Frederick and Grace’s attempts to solve the mystery lead to another death among the sands?

Oh how I love Freddy and Grace.
Sigh again.
It’s bittersweet.

After becoming acquainted with aforementioned characters in The Mistletoe Countess, I practically squealed aloud on seeing this new book, which tells of their honeymoon travels to Egypt.
Pepper Basham has a way of bringing those sights and sounds to life right before your eyes.
Grace is still the same humorous and adorable Grace. Freddy is kept on his toes just keeping track of her and keeping her safe.
This story abounds with mystery and danger.
I loved it from beginning to end.
The end was bittersweet because I don’t want to leave these newfound friends….(is there a chance that there will, perhaps, be another book about them? I do not know, but oh how I wish for it!)

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves romance, mystery, and lots of Pepper.
