Written in homage to Elizabeth Peters and her Amelia Peabody mysteries, who's influence is clear throughout the text, this story finds Olive caught up in a mystery featuring mummies, curses, and a family in distress. She's still a work in progress, but Olive is coming along in her chosen profession and has even found an ally in an old friend who enjoys playing Watson to her Holmes, in a sweet way. ( )

I really do love this series, and I have only listened to it on audiobook. I'm not sure how it would play out if I actually had read the books. I'm not a fan of binge-watching or binge-reading, but with this series it would be easy to fall into that. In this book Olive Belgrade finds herself staying in an opulent townhouse in London. She has been hired to determine what actually happened to Lady Agnes Mulgrave's uncle who had apparently committed suicide. Lady Agnes doesn't believe that her beloved uncle, who was a celebrated Egyptologist in 1920's London, would ever have taken his own life. Olive is on the case with her usual aplomb and joie-de-vivre. Don't think for one minutes that Olive is a flighty young 20 something society girl on the society treadmill. She is a bright, forceful and determined young woman who always needs to know the truth above all else. I love the setting of these books and I love each of the books in the series. They are fun, a little flirtatious, and a good bit serious when Olive determines there is a murderer on the loose. These books make me happy. I don't expect any great life changing or catastrophic events in them, and that's ok too. I just expect to be entertained and to spend a few relaxing hours in Olive's company. Isn't that what we read books for? ( )

This is Book 3, in the High Society Lady Detective series. I had previously read only book 5 and was very meh about Rosett's plotting, finding the narrative improbably silly and the characterizations shallow.
However, a friend convinced me to try the Egyptian Antiquities story and this push was fortuitous. The novel was a cheerful romp with period flavour from the excitement over British excavations in the Valley of the Kings lending interest.

The character development was more accomplished than in Book 5, and the twists in the mystery were not obvious although not unexpected. I like the slow development of a potential romance between two of the characters that appear (I am guessing) throughout the series.
Recommended if you enjoy British society tales with a murder to be solved, but don't expect more than the mildest of suspense. It was good for my state of being at this moment. ( )

When Lady Agnes of Mulvern Hall asks Olive Belgrave to investigate her last uncle’s death, Olive is thrilled: not only will she be staying at one of the most stately homes in London, but Uncle Lawrence was a renowned Egyptologist and his collection is most fascinating! Of course, the papers are scaring the public with a series of stories suggesting a “curse of the mummy” situation at Mulvern Hall, but such gossip has never worried Olive. Then again, receiving threats in the form of an Egyptian curse, not to mention a very odd break-in and a second suspicious death, might prove far more worrisome for our lady detective…. The early 1920s was a banner time for a huge Egyptology fad in England, and Sara Rosett takes full advantage of that situation in the third book in this series. Olive is an engaging sleuth, clever and resourceful even when the people hiring her want her to be rather less so, and the ins and outs of British high society of the time are well described. Definitely a light read, which seems to be just what my brain is craving these days! I don’t think it’s necessary to have read the earlier books in the series; this set seems to me to be the kind where one can just dive in anywhere and the reader will soon find his/her footing; recommended.

Olive has a new job, and it does not involve finding lost dogs! Contacted by Lady Agnes Mulvern to prove that her uncle did not commit suicide, she is invited to stay with the family in the luxurious townhouse, which feels more like a museum as it houses the late Lord Mulvern's extensive collection of Egyptian antiquities has taken over the space. Olive finds evidence that he was, in fact, murdered. However, before she can pursue that, a family secret and a second murder put her on the trail of a killer. Love that this mystery explores the very real fascination at the time with Egypt many English aristocrats indulged while not failing to highlight the sometimes deceitful ways they went about getting them. Fun and informative, my favorite kind of book! ( )
