    The Treacherous Curse

    I grab every book that I can find from Deanna. If you like mystery, murder and science. This is a long read but you just keep on reading on. This is about an Egyptian deal. Veronica and Stroker are associated together. Lord Leister has come home with artifacts one death and a missing man, John Dr Morgan. He has married Caroline after Caroline dumped Stroker! Major Spoiler! Now Horace Stihl comes over from America to see what has changed since he worked with Lord Leister. The Lord is waiting to open. Now one of the Egyptian Gods has popped up to scare people and get more people to see his showing. There are all kinds of action in this book. Have you ever chased someone down a sewer? Who is Anubis? Where is John Dr Morgan? When will his baby be born? Don't let this book get away or you are bound to miss a very helpful area! I liked this story. Deanna keeps you on your toes! You won't regret reading this book! Enjoy!

    Fantastic installment

    Why did I wait so long to read this book? I have no excuses but now that I have finished the book, I know that putting it off for a year was a bad plan. I really enjoyed this installment in the series, probably even more than the previous book. Once I got into this book, I didn't want to put it down because I was completely pulled into the mystery. The mystery in this book was solid. Veronica and Stoker are trying to find a missing man. A man who happens to be a big part of Stoker's past. This mystery reaches all the way to the caves in Egypt and is much more involved than originally thought. I was pulled in a lot of different directions and was completely stumped when it came to trying to figure out what really happened. One of the things that I love about this series is the characters. Veronica is very smart and able to think on her feet. She isn't like most women of her time and cares less about what is proper than what she wants. I knew that Stoker had a very interesting past and was thrilled to get some big pieces of it filled in during the course of this book. I think that the things that we learn about Stoker in this book really make it easier to understand him better. I love the relationship between Stoker and Veronica. They work so well together and make a great team. There is a part of me, okay a big part, that wants to see a romance develop between the pair but I am also okay with the sexual tension between them continuing to pop up and make things interesting. I would highly recommend this book to others. This is the third book in the Veronica Speedwell Mystery series which really should be read in order if at all possible since the relationships between the characters have built over the course of series. This book was filled with fantastic characters solving a very well done mystery and revealing a few secrets. I can't wait to get started on the newest book from this series very soon. I received a digital review copy of this book from Berkley Publishing Group via Edelweiss.

    An Excellent Addition to this Series

    I love Julia Raybourn’s Lady Julia Grey series, so I was anxious to dive into her new Veronica Speedwell series. I’ve not been disappointed, and in fact, may like Veronica even more than Lady Julia. Brilliant, outspoken, strong-willed and far ahead of her time, Veronica is a fascinating character, as is her partner, Stoker. I received this as an ARC through Netgalley, but decided to read the first two books before diving into this one. That turned out to be an excellent decision, as the relationship between Veronica and Stoker develops through the first 3 books, and secrets from both their backgrounds are revealed over the course of the series, and there are surely more to come. The lovely relationship that has developed between Veronica and Stoker has been enjoyable to watch develop. Their banter makes me laugh out loud at times, and conveniently the mysteries they solve are interesting. And while I feel like I have a pretty good vocabulary, I’m always grateful for my Kindle’s built-in dictionary when I read a Deanna Raybourn book - I do believe I use that feature more for her books than for any other author’s. (And that’s a positive in my book.) Copy provided by Netgalley and Berkley Publishing Group in exchange for an unbiased review
