The Cairo Curse by Pepper Basham - Reviewed


About the book:

Title: The Cairo Curse

Author: Pepper Basham

Series: Fredrick & Grace Mystery #2 

Book one The Mistletoe Countess

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?

My Thoughts:

There is a Pepper Basham book I haven't loved and The Cairo Curse is no different. 

This adorable couple is supposed to go to Italy for their honeymoon with a side trip to Egypt to help Fredrick's cousin. What ensues is an adventure, camels, mummies (if it were left up to Grace), and romance that only Pepper Basham can pen.

This was a delightful book that had me grinning like a schoolgirl from the beginning all the way to the end. I loved Freddy and Grace in The Mistletoe Countess so it was fun to read another book with them in it. I have found that reading a series with the same characters is like getting together with old friends. It's one of the things I love about series.

If you haven't read The Mistletoe Countess I would highly recommend you read it prior to this one. You'll miss out on all the sweetness of this couple.

About Pepper Basham

I love a good romance, whether it’s set in an Edwardian era manor house or a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Readers enjoy my fun, dramatic, heart-warming, and inspirational novels with the certainty of a happily-ever-after.

Though some of my contemporaries have a Britallachian twist, others are Mayberry-esque, while others bring about the elegance and struggles of the Downton Abbey era. If any of these story ideas sound good to you, take some time to peruse my cyber corner of the world. “Sit a spell” as we’d say in my neck of the woods and let me ‘spin you a yarn’ filled with a few of my favorite things.

You are so welcome, Pepper! Thanks for a fun book to escape to!
I actually forgot to add your bio the first time. That’s what having bronchitis for two weeks will do to you.
