I had a hard time getting started with this book, but after about 1/3 of the way, I had a hard time putting it down. I knew someone in the book was up to no good, but I was completely surprised by the ending!
A nice mystery and romance. Set around 1895 in England and Egypt.
I really enjoyed this adventure/romance. From London's social whirl to Egypt's tombs & pyramids, Hunter McDonald & Kat Adair flirt, fall in love, find treasure, and fight the bad guys. A word of caution, the summary blurb on the back of the paperback edition is wildly misleading and not completely accurate.
Historical romance with accent on romance. The daughter of a struggling artist in 1890s London finds herself propelled into High Society after she rescues a member of the posh set from drowning. Disillusionlment follows, then a heated romance with a Rhett-Butler-like figure, an archaeological trip to Egyptâ¦ and then things get kind of unlikely.
I could barely tolerate this one. Read 30 to 40 pages, then skimmed to see if anything interesting happened. Very little emotional content or character development. Actually, very little apparent romance.
