Publisher's Summary

Secrets never die....

October, 1923. Lady detective Olive Belgrave has a new case. Lady Agnes doesn’t believe in curses - especially ancient curses - and she hires Olive to prove her uncle wasn’t the victim of a malevolent mummy. Olive investigates and discovers the truth is much worse - it’s murder. Can Olive debunk the curse and reveal the true culprit before the mummy curse claims another victim? 

The Egyptian Antiquities Murder is the third book in the High Society Lady Detective series, a cozy historical series set in 1920s England. If you enjoy lighthearted novels reminiscent of the Golden Age of detective fiction with spirited protagonists and perplexing mysteries, you’ll love the High Society Lady Detective Series from USA Today best-seller Sara Rosett.

A Delightful Cozy Mystery

Olive is a great character. She's smart, methodical and diligent. She manages to politely expose family secrets and solve a murder. The characters are well written and the solution of the mystery isn't obvious. I also like the friendship relationship between Jasper and Olive. I look forward to seeing how their friendship continues to grow. I enjoy this series and eagerly wait for the next book.

Peabody Inspired.

I love this Amelia Peabody inspired addition to the series.

I am, however, increasingly irritated, however, by the number of Americanisms that are liberally sprinked through the supposedly English setting. It jars you right out of the narrative flow when a very English character says "cookies" when they mean "biscuits", for example, and they're all putting cream into their tea instead of milk... (but at least this book has "pavement" instead of sidewalk", so there has been a little improvement in that respect).

Not as good as the first two books

Plot a bit weak despite the rich tapestry that Egyptology offers. Felt formulaic. A little disappointed.

Loved it

I really love the time period in which this series is set. I'm also quite fascinated by the Egyptomania that swept the world in the 20s. I had a good old nosy at the author's pinterest board to see the inspiration behind the story and photos of the Wallace Collection.
The mystery was good and I loved the exciting conclusion when Olive confronted the killer. The narration by Elizabeth Klett is excellent as always.
I can't wait for the rest of the series to come out on Audible.
