First Line Friday — The Cairo Curse

27 Jan

Happy Friday! My book club read The Mistletoe Countess by Pepper Basham in December — it was a big hit! Now I’m reading the sequel, The Cairo Curse, and loving it! Freddie is still his dashing self, and Grace is, well, Grace! My review will be coming in February.

In the meantime, here’s the first line:

Gunfire erupted from outside, sending Frederick Percy, Earl of Astley, leaping from his chair.

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.
