Amelia Peabody Emerson is an amazing character. Her stubbornness, curiosity, and sensitivity make her very appealing. The mystery, of course, is primary, but the family dynamics,suspense, and frequent comedy make every book in this series a joy. The Egyptology and history are a plus. Barbara Rosenblatt is the best at reading these books. Her characterization and voices, even for the male characters, is perfect. These are books to listen to again and again.
I've enjoyed all the Hannah books I've read/listened to. The narrator does a good job with the voices. I wish they had added a note that the last recipe (for fudge cupcakes) had an error. It is corrected during the story in the next book, but that was too late for me. I had cupcake batter ALL over my oven. The recipe called for baking SODA instead of baking POWDER. Beware all recipe testers!
