    Maggie Owen is a beautiful, spirited Egyptologist... but lonely. Even being in Egypt on a grant from the college she teaches at to search for an undiscovered necropolis she's certain lies below the sands beyond the pyramids of Gizah doesn't give her the happiness she'd hoped it would. There has always been and is something missing. Love. Then her workmen uncover Ramose Nakh-Min's ancient tomb and an amulet from his sarcophagus hurls her back to 1340 B.C.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book is written as a standard light romance. It is not in depth and not meant to be an amazing book. It was enjoyable and a fun description of Ancient Egypt. Nothing heavy, but a good listen.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The time travel is something you have to accept in the book. It does allowed the reader/listener to compare things to modern day, but it leaves the story unbelievable.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Erica L. Risberg?

    Anyone or better editing, the recording was awful. It seemed that she could not pronounce the names so there was a single recording that was cut in anytime a name came up. The interruption was terrible and I almost returned the book. The volume level also faded in and out. Whoever was the sound editor and voice coach let this go in a terrible path. It would be so much easier to recommend this if it wasn't such a train wreck.


    Do you think Egyptian Heart needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes! Fun story to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    Happy the length was eight hours, anything less than that and I feel cheated.
