This audiobook was perfect for a fun and light distraction. This first book in the series, introduces Amelia Peabody, a Victorian spinster who embarks on a journey to Egypt armed with an excellent classics education, a keen wit and a sturdy parasol. She and her companion, Evelyn, quickly get into trouble when they encounter a mystery involving an archeological dig, fortune hunters, and mummies. Barbara Rosenblat is excellent as the narrator. I will definitely be listening to more in this series!
