What do you get when you put together an aristocrat turned archaeologist, a Wild West sharp shooter, a stunt pilot, and a French mathematician, and then turn them loose in 1920’s Egypt? Well, in The Lady Adventurers Club by Karen Frost, you get thrills, chills, intrigue, treasure, romance, and, of course, adventure.
Archaeologist Lady Anna Baring believes she has found the tomb of an ancient pharaoh that will make King Tut’s treasure look tame, and she wants to share the opening of the tomb with her new friends Clara Pickering, Eliza Law, and Georgette Martin, all members of the newly formed Lady Adventurers Club. The trip to Egypt though, sets off a chain of events that will plunge the four women into extreme danger. They will need all their wits and skills if they are to survive the threats that are thrown their way.
This is an exciting read. The characters really work well together even though at first they seem to be very unlikely friends. The author did a good job developing these ladies. The setting plays a major role in the story, and it is well-described. It is the action, adventure, and romance that really makes this a great novel, especially with the added paranormal aspect of the story.
I had a lot of fun reading this book. If you love adventure, intrigue, romance and a bit of the paranormal in your historical fiction novels, then give this book a try.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bella Books for an honest review.
