The Cairo Curse by Pepper Basham

The Cairo Curse
Freddie and Grace Mystery #2
Historical Fiction

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?

The Cairo’s Curse is a delightful sequel to The Mistletoe Countess by Pepper Basham in the Freddie and Grace Mystery series.

My Thoughts

Isn't it such a thrill when book two is every bit as good as book one? I read The Mistletoe Countess last year and fell in love with the delightful characters. I couldn't wait to dig into the second episode of this couple's saga. 

The story picks up a bit after book one leaves off. The couple has had a delayed honeymoon and to make up for that Freddie has a surprise trip to Egypt planned for Grace. Of course Grace is delighted, I mean who wouldn't be . . . camels and pyramids! 

What unfolds is anything but a typical honeymoon. Adventure, mystery, and mayhem ensues because of course Grace is involved. While the storyline is mainly about Grace and Freddie, we also get a new look at Elliott, Freddie's valet and Grace's often unwitting accomplice. He's such an interesting character.

Speaking of characters, we get to meet a whole new batch. Wait until you experience Zahra, Amelia, and a whole host of others. Some are upstanding. Some appear to be upstanding, but they're not. And some are outright scoundrels. It was such a fun read and I look forward to their next adventure. These are characters that I hope have a long series of adventures.
