This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

1912, London. Jessie Kenton hears her young brother, Georgie, scream in the middle of the night and wakes up the next morning to find him gone. Her parents never speak of him again. 1932. Twenty years later, Jessie is haunted by the same nightmare. Her other brother, Timothy, has inexplicably vanished from her parents' home. Wracked by guilt because of her failure to ever find Georgie, and convinced that the two events must be related, she sets out on a quest to find Timothy. She plunges into a mysterious world of seances and mystics, nebulous clues and Egyptian artifacts. With the help of a dashing and impoverished aristocrat, Sir Montague Chamford, Jessie follows the trail into the alien, swirling sands of the Egyptian desert. Amid the ancient intrigue and blistering heat, a powerful romance sparks between Jessie and Monty. But they must first confront the demons of Jessie's past - and reveal the dark secrets that threaten not only Timothy's life but theirs as well.

I should have liked it...

I love the Sherlock Holmes stories, I'm fascinated by Egyptian culture, and Alison Larkin is one of my favorite narrators, so this seemed like a sure bet. OMG, SO wrong. The story was non-exists to, the characters trite and unlikable; even Ms. Larkin's lovely narration couldn't redeem this mess 😞

Great read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was a good storyline and excellent charactor development.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the relationship between Tim and George,

Which character – as performed by Alison Larkin – was your favorite?

I have to say Ms Larkin's performance of George was my favorite. She conveyed his vulnerability and the extent of his disability really well while still showing he had the same fears and determination as his siblings.
