The Curse of Pharaohs Review

Happy Monday Everyone!

So, I have a new series that I have become obsessed with that one of my co-workers introduced me to, and that is the Amelia Peabody mysteries. I loved the first book, The Crocodile on the Sandbank, and wanted to know what happens with Amelia, so I bought the second and third book. The second book in this amazing series is called The Curse of the Pharaohs by Elizabeth Peters.

The book description comes from the Goodreads website:

“Victorian Amelia Peabody continues to journal her Egypt adventures, toddler Ramses left in England. Husband Radcliffe Emerson’s old friend Lady Baskerville fears a curse killed her husband Sir Henry, and soon engages the attentions of American Cyrus. The will funds continued excavation. But a lady dressed in white floats, flutters, spreads fear, and more death.”

Amelia Peabody is a woman who loves ancient Egypt and is dangerous with a parasol. She gets to go on a crazy adventure with her husband Emerson, where danger lurks around every corner. Amelia is one who loves to solve mysteries however Emerson would just rather dig than anything. But when Emerson’s life is threatened, can Amelia and Emerson figure out the truth behind the murders or will this be the end of out fated couple?

What I really loved about these books is it mixes my love of ancient Egypt and mystery. Elizabeth’s writing reminds me a lot of Agatha Christie’s and it will leave you on the edge of your seat until the very end! Elizabeth creates characters that you instantly fall in love with as a reader. You will laugh at their antics, love the way Emerson treats Amelia, and love how they work very well together. Emerson reminds me of a mixer between Mr. Rochester and Heathcliff in the best of ways. Any lover of ancient Egypt, mystery and a heroine who is hard as nails will fall in love with this series as much as I have!

Go on a murder mystery with Amelia and Emerson in the land of the Pharaohs my fellow sleuths!
